Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape. They are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or partially destroyed by tooth decay. If you have a damaged tooth, our Center for Exceptional Dentistry team can help restore it using crowns. We specialize in providing quality dental care to our patients and would be happy to discuss this treatment option with you!
How Are Crowns Applied to Teeth?
Materials such as porcelain, metal, and sometimes both make crowns. The most often preferred type is porcelain crowns because they look like natural teeth because of their translucency. They are also very durable. The procedure goes as follows:
- You pick the type of crown you want
- The crowns are then “cemented” onto your existing tooth
- They fully cover the portion of your tooth above the gum line
- Now, you have a new outer surface of the tooth
Crowns can last for many years, but eventually, you will need to replace them. Your new crown should give you years of trouble-free service with proper care! If you have any questions about crowns or would like to schedule an appointment, do not hesitate to get in touch with the Center for Exceptional Dentistry at (412) 274-1126.
