DeSoto Dental is dedicated to providing patients with options to excellent oral health. If you have a cracked or broken tooth, it may require a dental crown. This will ensure your oral health is maintained and eliminate future dental issues. You may be experiencing pain or tooth sensitivity that can hinder your ability to enjoy your everyday life. Don't wait to have your tooth repaired; maintaining proper oral health is highly beneficial to your overall well-being.
A dental crown, or commonly referred to as "caps", is a general dental care option for tooth replacement in the event of damage. The replacement tooth fits over the existing damaged tooth, providing patients with relief from dental issues requiring a crown. A dental crown is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth, making it difficult for anyone to notice that you are wearing a crown. Crowns are made from a variety of materials including; porcelain, ceramic and gold. The end result is a perfect fusion between the new crown and your existing teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns
Cosmetic dental crowns are milled using CAD technology that creates a 3D image for doctors to work with in order to restore your tooth. For some, the result of tooth decay requires the need for a dental crown. The team at DeSoto Dental will work closely with you to ensure the process is as comfortable as possible. The doctor will prepare your tooth by removing any existing decay or damage. Reshaping and reducing the size of your damaged tooth is necessary to ensure the dental crown will adhere properly. After the tooth is prepared, an impression is done. This impression will be the foundation of your new cosmetic dental crown. Often two or more visits to the office are required to complete the dental crown procedure, unless you choose the CEREC one-day crown option available at DeSoto Dental.
