If you have lost or severely damaged a tooth it may be time to consider treatment with a dental crown. No matter what restoration you use, it is important to repair your missing tooth as soon as possible. This will help prevent damage to the surrounding teeth and bone loss below the gum line. Missing teeth can also make you look older by causing your cheeks and face to hollow.
Dental crowns are affordable and durable replacements for your missing or damaged teeth. Crowns can be made of ceramic or porcelain. Crowns are often quick treatment and can seal damage following a large filling or a root canal procedure.
In order to replace missing teeth, dental crowns are combined with implants or a bridge to recreate the natural beauty of your smile.
If you are ready to be fitted for a dental crown you should plan to need two dental visits. During the first visit, you will be measured and a temporary crown fitted to your tooth. During a second visit your custom made crown will be fitted and cemented permanently with dental cement.
