Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are one of the most common restorative dental procedures at Canton Dental. They are used to restore the shape, size, and strength of a damaged or decayed tooth.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to improve its appearance, alignment, and function. It covers the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line, providing protection and support to the natural tooth structure.

Why Are Dental Crowns Necessary?

Dental crowns are necessary for various reasons, including:

  • Protecting a weak or damaged tooth from further decay or fracture
  • Restoring a broken or cracked tooth
  • Covering a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment
  • Cosmetically enhancing a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Supporting a dental bridge and filling in gaps between missing teeth

Getting a Dental Crown at Canton Dental

At Canton Dental, we understand that our patients lead busy lives and value their time. That's why we offer same-day crowns, also known as CEREC crowns. This technology allows us to create the crown in our office and have it placed on the same day, eliminating the need for a second appointment.

The process of getting a dental crown at Canton Dental typically involves:

  1. Consultation and Examination: During your first visit, our dentist will examine your teeth and take x-rays to determine the extent of damage and whether a crown is necessary.
  2. Preparation: The damaged tooth will be reshaped to make room for the crown. An impression of your tooth will also be taken to ensure an accurate fit.
  3. Creation of Crown: We will design and create your custom crown in our office.
  4. Placement: Once the crown is ready, it will be permanently bonded to your tooth, restoring its function and appearance.

Dental Crowns FAQs

What materials are used for the dental crowns at Canton Dental Associates?

The dental crowns at Canton Dental Associates are crafted from durable materials that are designed to withstand the tests of time while effectively replicating the strength and function of natural teeth.

What is the process for getting a dental crown at Canton Dental Associates?

The process starts with a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health to determine the necessity of a dental crown. If a crown is deemed necessary, the tooth is prepared by filing down its enamel to make room for the crown. An impression of your teeth is then taken to ensure that the crown aligns perfectly with your bite. At this stage, a temporary crown is fitted to protect the prepared tooth while the permanent crown is crafted. Once the permanent crown is ready, it is carefully cemented in place during a final visit.

How does a dental crown enhance oral health?

Dental crowns play a crucial part in preserving oral health. They aid in tasks like chewing, protect weak teeth from further damage, and serve as a shield for a tooth after a root canal treatment. Beyond enhancing your smile’s appearance, the dental crowns provided by Canton Dental Associates are designed to offer long-lasting oral health benefits.
