WHAT IS A CROWN?
A crown is a covering that encompasses the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens the tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Porcelain crowns are the most popular, they look like your natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth, giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
Reasons for crowns:
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Decayed teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- Tooth has a root canal
What is the process in receiving a crown treatment?
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking an impression that will be used to create a custom crown. A mold will be created to provide a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.
At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed. The tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.
There’s not one bad thing to say about Dr. Robbins or his staff. They are simply amazing, comforting, and professional! I’ve never had a better experience with a dentist!
Just like his father in law before him (Mike McBride), Jeremy is the only one I trust my (and my kids’) smile with. Great hygienist staff as well. Could not be more happy with this office!!!
