What Is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns, also known as tooth caps, are made of beautiful, sturdy porcelain. Crowns can be placed on top of dental implants. They can also be placed on the remaining structure of a natural tooth after it has sustained external damage or undergone root canal therapy.
All our dental crowns are carefully designed and constructed with quality material in order to look and feel just like your natural teeth. Chances are, no one will know you have had any dental work at all!
Our porcelain crowns at Bateman Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry are built not only for beauty but for durability, withstanding your natural biting pressure so you can enjoy chomping down on all your favorite foods.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Crowns can do wonders for your smile both aesthetically and health-wise. Not only do they fill the holes left by trauma, they also help reinforce any areas that have been damaged or weakened by infection. Additionally, dental crowns help create and maintain a healthy chewing surface that’s easy to clean, so you can prevent bacteria buildup and enjoy optimal oral health.
The Dental Crown Placement Procedure
Our porcelain crowns are easily applied over the span of one or two office visits. During your first visit, we’ll take a mold of your teeth, so we can create a crown that fits perfectly. While the permanent crown is being constructed, you’ll be fitted with a temporary one.
If you’re receiving a crown along with a dental implant, the crown will be installed last, after the titanium post has been given time to fuse to your jawbone.
