What Is a Crown?
A dental crown or cap as it’s also called is a covering that is placed on a tooth to rebuild or strengthen it. A crown is designed to cover all the tooth structure at and above the gum line to restore the tooth’s original shape, size, and appearance. While there are many materials used to make crowns, they’re often made from high quality porcelain. A crown can be made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, E-Max, or Zirconia. This is the most popular material used when fabricating crowns because porcelain closely matches the color and translucent qualities of natural teeth.
Our dental crown treatment can:
- Strengthen a weakened, worn, or damaged tooth
- Protect a tooth following root canal therapy
- Complete a dental implant
- Improve the appearance of your smile
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Support a large filling when there is little original tooth structure remaining
Ocoee, FL, Dental Crown Procedure
With our advanced technology, we can complete a crown restoration in a single visit to our office. CEREC, which stands for Ceramic Reconstruction, uses 3D imaging technology to design crowns without the need for taking impressions. Once we’ve captured a 3D image of your prepared tooth, we will fabricate your custom-made crown right in our office while you sit back and wait. We will then place the crown on your tooth and cement it in place. In about two hours, you will have your new crown that looks and feels very natural for improved tooth functionality and appearance.
In order to maintain your new crown, you should treat it the way you would treat your natural teeth by practicing good oral hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing will ensure the longevity of your crown. Also, we recommend that you avoid chewing hard foods and ice because the impact may damage the crown.
