When a tooth is fractured, has a large, old filling, or is
severely damaged by decay, your dentist may recommend
the placement of a crown, or cap. Crowns strengthen
and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve
the appearance of your smile. Types of crowns include
the full porcelain crown, the porcelain-fused-to-metal
crown and the all-metal crown.
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to the dentist's
office. Initially, we will:
- Removes decay and shapes the tooth.
- Makes an impression
- Makes and fits a temporary crown of plastic or metal.
In a subsequent visit, we remove the temporary, fit and
adjust the final crown, and cement the crown in place.
Few incidents have greater impact on dental health and personal
appearance than tooth loss. When one or more
teeth are missing, the remaining teeth can drift out
of position, which can lead to a change in the bite,
the loss of additional teeth, decay and gum disease.
When tooth loss occurs, we may recommend the placement of
a bridge. A bridge is one or more replacement
teeth anchored by one or more crowns on each side.
