How Damaged Teeth are Restored
If you have experienced damage to your tooth, it may be in need of a restoration. Dental crowns are a very popular restorative option for teeth that have been weakened or damaged.
Teeth can become weakened for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is an injury that weakens the tooth, while other times it is caused by tooth decay. These types of issues can result in the patient requiring a root canal. A root canal involves removing the root tissue of the tooth. Therefore, the tooth is no longer strong enough on its own. To compensate, a dental crown is used to restore its overall function.
A dental crown is usually made out of porcelain or of porcelain fused to metal. Both options resemble natural teeth, but the latter option is a bit stronger. This means it can also lead to grinding down the teeth opposite of it in certain instances.
At the start of the dental crown procedure, the dentist will give you a local anesthetic. The tooth is then prepared for the crown by first being filed down enough to fit it properly. The dentist then takes an impression of the tooth and sends it off to the laboratory. You will be sent home with a temporary crown while your permanent crown is being designed by the laboratory. On your second visit, the dentist will make sure that it fits precisely and that it matches the color of your other teeth. The crown will then be cemented into place.
If you require tooth restoration due to an emergency, then contact our expert in emergency dental crowns as soon as possible.

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
