Crowns & Bridges

What is a dental crown?

Do you have a broken tooth?

Dental crowns are the perfect solution for cracked, chipped, or decayed teeth. They fit right over your existing tooth to restore its appearance and function. Crowns can be made from porcelain, gold or zirconia, depending on your needs and preferences. We’ll work with you every step of the way to make sure that you get precisely what you want and need in a dental crown.

You don’t need to live with an unsightly smile any longer! Our team will help create a beautiful new smile by placing a custom-made dental crown over your existing tooth, so it looks like nothing ever happened in the first place! It’s never too late for something as simple as a dental crown – we can even provide them for children who have lost their baby teeth prematurely due to decay or injury! Call us today at 561-736-1700 if you want more information about our services.

What exactly is a dental crown?

  • A dental crown is a type of tooth restoration that covers the entire visible part of the tooth
  • Dental crowns are typically made from porcelain, zirconia, or gold but can also be made from other materials
  • They are used to cover teeth that have been weakened by decay, injury, or gum disease
  • An example of when a dental crown might need replacing would be if it breaks off because it has not been cared for properly
  • The dentist will take an impression (mold) of your teeth before they make you a new one for them to fit perfectly
  • Not all teeth need to be crowned, but if they do, it is most commonly either the upper front tooth or lower back tooth
  • Our team will help determine if you need a dental crown during your consultation appointment

Why might I need a dental crown?

A broken or decayed tooth
If you have a tooth that has broken or decayed to the point of being an inconvenience to your daily life, then you might need a dental crown

A cracked tooth
If you have experienced trauma to one of your teeth and it is now broken, then you might need a dental crown over it, so it does not get any worse

What does a Dental Crown consist of?

  • The crown itself is typically made from porcelain or gold
  • Porcelain is baked out of glass and painted with enamel to give it a natural look
  • Gold is usually made from an alloy of metals and gold so that the crown is strong and durable enough to handle chewing and biting forces
  • The shape of the crown will either be a perfect match to the original tooth or a shape that best fits the area where it is needed If you have a dental crown, you still need to follow proper oral hygiene procedures to ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy. Our team will go over necessary homecare instructions during your consultation appointment

Are Dental Crowns Permanent?

Not all dental crowns are permanent – some of them can be removed and replaced as needed throughout your life. For example, a dentist may place a temporary dental crown if necessary to protect the tooth and allow the gums to heal. Once this is done, they will replace it with a custom-fit permanent one that looks like the original tooth.

Why are dental crowns necessary?

A dental crown can strengthen a damaged or weakened tooth and make it look better than ever! It can also restore your smile to its natural beauty, so you don’t have to worry about covering your teeth anymore when you smile for pictures. If our team determines that you need a dental crown, we will customize one for your needs during your consultation appointment!
