When a Dental Crown Is Your Best Option

Some people associate dental coverings or replacements with old age and a lack of vitality. The truth is that dental crowns, which protect what’s left of a tooth, can be found in people of all ages and have helped many people. People need crowns for several reasons, and there are several options available for this type of treatment. 

Our specialists at Fresh Dental Care have seen the most severe dental cases and are equipped to provide the care that you need. If you’ve been having issues with chewing, or pain in your teeth or jaw, we can help you. Our precisely-fitted and long-lasting crowns resolve several problems that can impact your daily life.

What is a dental crown?

Also called a cap, a dental crown is used to cover a tooth. This isn’t done on healthy, white teeth, of course. Crowns are meant for teeth that are discolored or need extra support to function properly. People may need crowns because of a lack of proper dental hygiene or because their teeth are deformed or stained. Crowns are also useful in restoring a tooth after a root canal. 

Our providers offer several different types of crowns. Temporary crowns are most likely to be made of metal. We use temporary crowns as we wait for your permanent crowns to be created. Each permanent crown is custom-made for the tooth that needs it. 

What if I need more than one? 

That’s fine! Our team at Fresh Dental Care can provide as many crowns as you need for a beautiful smile. If you have several teeth in a row that need attention, a bridge could be the best option for you. A bridge is several crown pieces, each customized for each particular tooth that it covers. 

We usually need two appointments to get your crown or bridge squared away: one to examine you and take molds, and the other to install your crown. After you’re fitted with your new crown or crowns, you can have the lunch you’ve been craving all week. 

Can a crown fix my smile?

To answer that, come in for a consultation. Our providers sit with you one-on-one, examine your teeth, and go over your dental history. If crowns are a fit for you, then we take molds for our dental laboratory. If you are getting a crown because you’re showing signs of tooth decay, you’ll need a root canal before your crown is installed. 

Your smile is the first thing that people notice about you. Don’t let it suffer. Call us today.
