Fix Your Dental Problem with a Crown
A dental crown, or cap, is a custom-made, natural-looking restoration that’s typically used to cover a damaged tooth or dental implant. Crowns help restore a tooth from trauma or decay and protect it from further damage.
Each crown is precisely and personally designed to fit over your tooth, starting at the gum line, recreating a match to its original shape and size. Here at Prosperity Dental Group, our dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal.
We generally recommend porcelain crowns to our patients because they simulate the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Dr. Royzman can help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile at your initial consultation.
Do You Need a Crown?
If your tooth is damaged or decayed severely where a dental filling won’t be capable of successfully restoring your smile. Crowns can be beneficial for a wide variety of dental flaws and problems such as:
- Protecting a tooth after a root canal treatment
- Anchoring and attaching a dental bridge
- Covering a dental implant
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Improving a misshapen tooth
- Strengthening a tooth that is fractured or weakened
- Supporting a large filling when there isn’t a lot of the tooth left
An Easy Process
Receiving a dental crown is simple and can be efficiently completed after you’ve had a consultation with Dr. Royzman. The process for receiving your dental crown will generally go like this:
- First, we will first examine your mouth to ensure the root and surrounding bone structure of the tooth is healthy.
- Dr. Royzman will then take a digital impression of your tooth so she can send it to a dental lab that creates the replica of your natural tooth.
- To prepare your tooth for a properly fitting crown, we will numb the area and shave down your existing tooth to make room for it.
- Next, we will place an attractive, temporary crown while your new, permanent crown is made within the following weeks.
- At your second appointment, Dr. Royzman will remove your temporary crown and check the fit and color of your new one. If everything looks right, she will securely fix it in its place.
To care for your new crown, follow a good oral hygiene routine, avoid chewing on hard foods or objects, and regularly visit our Lake Park dental office for your biannual check-ups.
