Benefits of Dental Crowns
- Dental crowns are most often used when your existing tooth is too damaged for other traditional dental procedures like fillings.
- If your damaged tooth is exceptionally weak, a tooth crown could strengthen the existing structure and provide necessary protection.
- Dental crowns can be used to support a dental bridge if needed.
- A tooth crown is also used as a cap for a dental implant and becomes a beautiful and permanent replacement for a missing tooth.
Dental Crown Procedure
- The first step involves taking a mold of the natural tooth that will be replaced by the tooth crown. A cap for teeth (dental crown) will be created especially for you.
- The second step involves Dr. Acton shaping your natural tooth so the tooth crown will fit perfectly.
- After the new dental crown is made it is affixed to your natural tooth that was reshaped to receive the new dental crown.
- Finally, after your dental crowns are placed, Dr. Acton may make some very slight adjustments to ensure that each tooth crown is properly aligned with your other teeth.
