That tooth is really bothering you. You wish it looked like the rest of your smile. You wish you could bite or chew with it, too. You want it to look and feel as good as new.
It can if you get a dental crown at Sabal Dental.
What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are restorations that replace the natural crown of teeth. The crown is the part of the tooth that is visible outside of your gumline. With a crown, your tooth can appear natural and provide the full function of a healthy tooth.
Why are dental crowns needed?
Crowns can serve a variety of purposes. They are primarily seen as a part of restorative dentistry. They can repair teeth that have become broken, cracked, chipped, decayed, and worn down. From a cosmetic standpoint, you also can get a crown for misshapen, small, and stained teeth. If you are missing a tooth, you also can place a crown on top of a dental implant to replace what you’ve lost.
What is the dental crown procedure?
In most situations, the tooth in question will be reshaped to form an abutment. Your crown will be made to match the color of your smile and to fit with your smile. You may wear a temporary crown until your permanent crown is ready. At that time, the permanent crown is bonded to your tooth. With proper care, your crown can last for more than a decade.
