Dental crowns are protective restorations that are custom made and completely cover the outside of a tooth. Crowns can be used to help restore the health and appearance of a tooth that is decayed, cracked, broken, or severely worn. There are several types of crowns available including: metal crowns, ceramic crowns, and porcelain fused to metal. The staff at Kluth-Richardson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will work with you to determine which crown is going to be the best fit for you.
Typically, crowns are two appointments. During the first appointment, the tooth is prepared for the crown and then an impression is sent to the lab for the crown to be fabricated. At the second appointment, your crown will be fitted and permanently put into place. However, our office offers CEREC same-day crowns that we make here in our office. By having CEREC technology, we can offer our patients a convenient option for a single-visit crown. For the best in dental crown technology from an experienced team, call Kluth-Richardson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today to schedule your consultation.
What Dental Issues Can Dental Crowns Address?
What Are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?
• Relieve pain: Dental infections, tooth chips, or tooth decay can cause pain when left unaddressed. With a crown, that pain can stop.
• Enhance your smile: A dental crown can restore your tooth to its natural beauty and function, so that you can smile confidently in any situation.
• Long Life Span: The average duration of a dental crown is 5-15 years, depending on how you care for it. Just like your natural teeth, dental crowns require that you brush and floss twice a day. In addition, routine dental care visits to Kluth-Richardson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will be beneficial in lengthening the use of the dental crown.
