At Gentle Dental Center, our goal is to provide cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatment that is undetectable. We can replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. The materials used as well as the high quality of work performed to restore your teeth makes these treatments last 20 to 30 years.
Why Do I Need A Crown?
There are many reasons a dental crown may be your treatment of choice. At Gentle Dental Center, our dentists will partner with you to determine the most effective and aesthetically pleasing option to restore your tooth. Some of the reasons you may need a crown include:
- Repairing a broken tooth.
- Covering and protecting a tooth that has been weakened, usually due to decay
- Strengthening a tooth that has had a root canal.
- Anchoring a dental bridge in place to restore bite function.
- Restoring misshaped or severely discolored teeth.
- Encasing a dental implant.
How does it work?
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
The crowns we use at Gentle Dental Center are made of a porcelain material that is carefully chosen to match the color of your existing teeth. Our dentists custom mold the prosthetic so that when it is cemented into place, it is a seamless transition and look with your existing smile.
At Gentle Dental Center, our experienced and skillful dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
