What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a customized cap that is made to fit over the biting surface of a damaged or otherwise weakened tooth. They can be made out of all sorts of different materials, including gold, ceramic, and porcelain. This restoration is generally used for patients with the following:
- Tooth that is severely decayed and has a large filling
- Broken tooth in need of extra support
- Tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
- Missing tooth that has been replaced with a dental implant
- Bridge that needs to be supported by adjacent teeth
- Tooth that is misshapen or discolored
The Process of Getting a Dental Crown
Receiving a personalized dental crown is easier than you may think—especially when you have an expert dentist like Dr. Sikes crafting and placing it.
At your initial visit, Dr. Sikes will make sure your tooth can support a crown. The tooth will need to be filed down just a bit to fit your dental crown over the tooth. If you’re getting a crown because a tooth is damaged, Dr. Sikes can alternatively fill the tooth to support your customized dental crown.
After the tooth has been stabilized, impressions and measurements of the affected area will be taken to create your personalized dental restoration. You’ll receive a temporary dental crown while your restoration is created, solving your dental issue from the first visit to our office!
As soon as your custom crown is created, Dr. Sikes will solidify your permanent dental crown and place your dental restoration!
