Dental Crowns are a great solution to cracked, damaged, or decaying teeth. Crowns can also be used to protect the patient’s natural tooth. At Curtis Family Dentistry, we offer restorative dental crowns to help you get your smile back. Plus, we offer restorative treatments that can be matched to your teeth, blending them perfectly with your smile. We offer a comfortable and friendly atmosphere to take care of all of your general dentistry
When Are Dental Crowns Used?
When a tooth has been severely damaged or cracked, a dental crown is often the best option. They are also used to help protect teeth from further damage or decay. Most root canal treatments require a dental crown to protect the weakened tooth structure. Dental crowns are also used in creating dental bridges and dental implants, helping replace missing teeth for a functional, beautiful smile. We offer a variety of metal crowns, as well as natural-looking porcelain options. Crowns are made to fit over your tooth and are bonded in place. Dental crowns are also used in other dental treatments like root canals and restorative dentistry
. At Curtis Family Dentistry, we offer one-day dental crowns. Our team can usually have you walking out of our office in as little as two hours with a new, beautiful smile. The durability of one-day dental crowns is comparative to our other offered options. The best part? They are similar in cost to our metal or porcelain crowns!
Curtis Family Dentistry is proud to offer same-day crowns, an efficient solution for teeth that have been weakened by trauma, damage, or infection. Our advanced technology allows our team to capture high-quality images of the teeth and gums and design a custom crown that can be placed over the affected tooth all in one appointment. By utilizing a glidewell.io on-site milling machine, CAD technology, and artificial intelligence, our team can quickly create a sturdy new crown that fits into your smile perfectly. Once the crown has been installed, we will ensure that the shape, color, and fit are all correct and comfortable, so it will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. Same-day crowns are an excellent option for patients who want to cut down the number of appointments they need, skip the temporary crown, and still have a durable, long-lasting dental restoration.
Other Tooth-Protection Options
When a full dental crown is not needed, but a large portion of a damaged tooth needs protection, inlays and onlays can be a solution. These protective dental coverings replace missing tooth material on the top or sides. Unlike fillings, inlays and onlays are created in a dental lab and bonded to the tooth, not hardened. This can put less stress on the tooth structure for significant tooth damage. When you need a damaged tooth repaired or restored, contact Curtis Family Dentistry
today. We offer beautiful dental crowns, inlays, and onlays that can be matched to your smile for a discrete repair.
Dental Crown FAQ
Are dental crowns painful?
Our team does everything we can to make your dental crown procedure stress-free. We’ll use a local anesthetic to numb the area before we begin working to keep you as comfortable as possible. Rest assured, your safety and comfort are our top priorities.
What is the difference between same-day crowns and traditional crowns?
As the name implies, same-day crowns can be designed and placed all in one day, whereas traditional crowns typically have a two week waiting period in between appointments while the permanent crown is being created. Another key difference is the materials that are used; same-day crowns are usually made with ceramic materials while traditional crowns are made of metal and porcelain.
How long do dental crowns last?
When properly cared for, a dental crown can last as long as ten years. To increase your crown’s lifespan, practice a comprehensive dental hygiene routine. Brush twice-per-day, floss at least once daily, and ensure you’re attending your biannual professional cleaning.
