Need a crown but worried about what the procedure will mean for you? We’re here to tell you that you have nothing to be afraid of. Keep reading for a closer look at this restorative treatment to put you at ease before you come in for your restoration.

What Is a Dental Crown?

To understand why getting a crown is so important to your dental health and wellness, you’ll need to understand what a dental crown is. A crown is quite literally a cap that goes over the tooth, protecting it and restoring a natural look and feel to the affected tooth.

Why Do I Need a Crown?

Crowns are a versatile restoration. Some of the many reasons for a crown include: protecting a weak or damaged tooth; restoring a broken tooth; covering a large filling; masking a discolored or misshapen tooth; completing a dental implant; or supporting a dental bridge or denture.

Dental Crown Procedure

Thanks to modern dental technology, getting a crown is a very comfortable experience. First, we will take the impressions and measurements needed for your custom dental crown to be crafted into the perfect shape for your unique smile. Depending on the reason for your crown, your tooth may require additional preparation before placement of the crown.

Once the dental crown has been created, we’ll make sure it’s a perfect fit, then adhere it to your natural tooth. We use safe and effective numbing agents to mask any pain or discomfort that could be associated with the procedure.
