Damaged or missing teeth can cause a variety of problems for you. You may not be happy with your appearance, and will therefore be self-conscious. Additionally, missing or weakened teeth will dramatically impact how and what you are able to eat.
Give us a call today to learn more about crowns.
Sometimes your teeth are too damaged to be fixed with just a filling. After a root canal, a crown may be put in place to fill a large hole and prevent farther damage. Crowns ride over the weakened tooth providing strength and protecting the tooth against breakage. It takes two appointments to restore a tooth with a crown. In the first any decay is removed from the tooth and it is shaped to accept the crown. Between the two visits the crown is made, usually of high-strength porcelain over gold alloy, all ceramic material, or gold.
Prevent problems with eating as well as farther damage to your mouth when you turn to the professionals at our office. We will get you fixed up fast and on your way.
If your tooth has been infected for a while, it may be sensitive and likely to break if exposed to pressure. We will first remove decay from your mouth and make a mold for the tooth. On the second visit we will install it to match the rest of your teeth. Call us today.
