A dental crown is a cap that is placed on top of the teeth that restores them to a desired shape and size. Our custom-made crowns at Dimayuga Dental are aesthetically pleasing, encasing the entire tooth and fixing issues like chipped and broken teeth. These caps secure the tooth, holding it into place and keeping it strong. Once bonded, the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gum line is protected, ensuring a natural look and feel for years to come.
Our crowns are matched to the color of your teeth, not only providing consistency in shape and length, but also in hue. We aim to fix teeth that are worn down, misshapen, and discolored with our carefully-placed caps. In instances where teeth are weak, crowns can be inserted to prevent breakage and brace them together when cracked. As an alternative to extraction, the caps keep your smile intact and your teeth where they should be.
When administering a dental crown, we first prepare the tooth that will be capped. It will be shaped so that the crown can be easily fitted. An impression of the tooth is then made to be used to construct the crown. Finally, the crown is placed over the tooth.
For an even smile and a simple fix for discoloration, chipped, cracked, and fragile teeth, a dental crown may be the solution you need. Do you think you could benefit from a dental crown? Give us a call today and we would be happy to answer any questions.
