Teeth can become damaged for so many reasons. Whether you’ve had trouble staying on top of your home care routine, you grind or clench your teeth, or you’ve had the misfortune of biting down into a hidden olive pit, if you have decayed, cracked, or worn down teeth, you need help.
That’s what we are here for.
Crowns are one of our most versatile restorative and cosmetic dentistry options. They can protect teeth that have been damaged or weakened, conceal teeth that are discolored or unusually shaped, and build up teeth that are worn down. We can also use crowns as part of a dental implants system to replace teeth that are missing.
Today’s modern crowns are made from porcelain, a beautiful, durable material that can be shaded to perfectly match the natural shade of your teeth. It’s nearly impossible to tell a crowned tooth from your own teeth, so all anyone will notice is your beautiful smile!
Crowns are a tooth-shaped cover that fits right over the top of your own tooth and covers it all the way down to the gumline. Sometimes, crowns are referred to as “caps.”
Getting a crown is a simple process. At your initial appointment, once we’ve determined that a crown is the best treatment option, we will shape your tooth to prepare it for the crown. This helps your restoration fit properly among your other teeth.
Next, your restorative dentist in Atlantis, Lake Worth, and Boynton Beach, Dr. Yagi Patel, will take impressions and photos. These, along with Dr. Patel’s precise instructions, will be sent to the lab we trust with our restorations. You’ll be fitted with a temporary crown to protect your teeth until your permanent crown is ready.
As soon as your crown comes back from the lab, we’ll call you back to our office to place your permanent crown. We’ll check the fit, and you’ll be all set!
Don’t try to suffer through a damaged or broken tooth. Call our office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Patel and see if a crown is the right option for you.
