Porcelain Crowns (Caps)
At the Danna Smile we can provide a range of cosmetic and functional treatments to restore your smile and improve your dental health. Crowns (or caps) are simply coverings that encase the entire tooth surface and restore it to its original shape and size.
This is an effective way to strengthen the tooth’s structure, and the porcelain material we use is very durable and resembles the color and texture of your natural teeth.
We will normally recommend crowns for:
- Restoring broken or fractured teeth
- Covering large fillings
- Covering teeth that had a root canal
- Restoring significantly decayed teeth
- Cosmetic enhancements
How Does It Work?
The procedure for receiving a dental crown is well-established, and the results are reliable and durable. We start by taking highly detailed impressions of your mouth. This data will then be used to create your custom crown that looks and fits perfectly in your mouth.
We will prepare the tooth to receive the cap by removing any decay and shaping the surface so make sure that the new crown fits just right. We will make sure that the new crown does not impact your bite and then ensure that the spacing is still correct.
For the most part, you’ll be able to eat the things you normally do, and you can brush and floss around it like your natural teeth. At your subsequent checkups, we’ll be sure to keep an eye on the crown, though, to make sure it’s still doing its job.
