Dental Crowns

dental crownsDental crowns are a durable, natural-looking solution for repairing damaged teeth. A crown is a fixed restoration that fits over a weakened tooth to restore its structure or attaches to a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. We can closely match the color of your natural teeth by using high-quality porcelain and advanced shading techniques to create your crown. Dr. George H. Burgess uses precise treatment planning to ensure that your dental crown is comfortable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. If you are interested in learning more about how dental crowns may be incorporated into your treatment plan, contact our Bradenton, FL, dental practice today.


When Should Dental Crowns Be Recommended?

Dr. Burgess may recommend a dental crown for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Protecting a weak tooth from possible fracture
  • Restoring a broken tooth
  • Supporting a dental bridge
  • Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant
  • Covering a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Strengthening a tooth following root canal treatment

 

The Production Process

The first step in creating and placing your dental crown is to treat the affected tooth. Dr. Burgess may remove the decay himself or you may be referred to a specialist if you require a root canal. After any decay has been removed, Dr. Burgess will take an impression of your bite. This information will be used to guide the creation of your custom-made dental crown. Dr. Burgess will select the color of your new restoration using a shade guide. He may place a temporary crown to protect the tooth while your permanent crown is being crafted by our partnering laboratory.

 

Placing Your Dental Crown

Once your dental crown is ready, Dr. Burgess will apply local anesthetic to minimize any potential discomfort while he is placing the crown. He will make any necessary adjustments to custom-tailor the dental crown and ensure that it fits comfortably without disrupting your bite. Dr. Burgess will then affix your dental crown in place using a specialized dental cement.

 

Aftercare

Once your dental crown is in place, it can be cared for just like a natural tooth. Keeping up with your regularly scheduled dental appointments and practicing proper brushing and flossing habits at home can help these high-quality restorations last for many years. Dr. Burgess also recommends that patients avoid certain habits, like chewing ice, that may cause damage to your dental crown.

 

Benefits of Dental Crowns

The most apparent benefit of a dental crown is that it will allow you to maintain as much of your natural tooth structure as possible while restoring form and function to your bite. Patients are able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence once a dental crown has been set in place. Crowns made entirely from porcelain are especially natural-looking and are much more durable than restorations that are made from other materials.
