At Pro Smile Dental Care in Danville, we are experts in dental crowns. Dental crowns are used to repair many forms of tooth damage and decay. When a tooth has had too many fillings or has damage like a chip or a crack, a crown may be required. Our dentist will consult with you and determine if a dental crown is needed to restore your smile.
Why Are Dental Crowns Used?
A crown is often the best way to prevent further damage if a tooth becomes decayed, cracked or broken. According to the American College of Prosthodontists, the main purpose of this dental procedure is to restore the normal function and appearance of your tooth.
Sometimes a tooth will have a cavity so large that filling it is not possible without severely weakening the tooth.
A Few Other Reasons You May Need A Cap Or Crown
- Root Canals
- Tooth Fractures
- Worn Teeth
- A Misshapen Tooth
- Discolored Teeth
How Is A Dental Crown Applied?
- At your first visit we will x-ray the damaged tooth and then using the latest in dental technology we scan your tooth using the CEREC procedure.
- The next step is to prepare the remaining portion of the tooth for the crown.
- We then customize the color and characterization of the crown to match the adjacent tooth perfectly.
- You will leave the office with the permanent crown in one sitting.
Porcelain For Double The Strength
Dental crowns can be made of several different materials. The location of the crown will help us determine our recommendation to you. In the old days, dentists would recommend metal crowns for back teeth, as it is a stronger material. Not anymore.
Teeth that are visible are often constructed from porcelain since they can match your natural tooth color. Our dental team will help you decide whether a porcelain, metal, or porcelain-metal combination is best for your crown.
The porcelain used for CEREC same day crowns is double the strength of transitional porcelain and does very well on back teeth.
