A dental crown is a restoration that covers or caps a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. A dental crown will strengthen and improve the appearance of a tooth. A crown is used when a tooth is so badly damaged that a simple filling will not work. Canyon Dental & Hair Transplant Studio uses advanced techniques to ensure an accurate and comfortable fit for all dental crown work. Call today to schedule an appointment.
Why is a dental crown used?
- Replace a large filling
- Protect a weak tooth
- Restore a fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Cover a dental implant, poorly shaped tooth or a tooth with a root canal
Canyon Dental & Hair Transplant Studio Surgeons create dental crowns that look like a natural tooth. They will take an impression to ensure the dental crown fits accurately and comfortably. A lot of different considerations are made when placing a crown. Canyon Dental & Hair Transplant Studio Surgeons look at the color, bite, shape and length of your natural teeth to ensure the dental crown looks and feels natural.
How long does a dental crown last?
A dental crown should last approximately five to eight years. But with good oral hygiene, most dental crowns will last for a much longer period of time. To prevent damaging or breaking the crown, avoid eating hard foods, ice or other hard objects. If teeth grinding is a problem you experience, ask an Canyon Dental & Hair Transplant Studio dentist about night time appliances that can be worn to protect your teeth and crown.
