When a tooth is cracked or chipped, or develops a serious case of tooth decay, then you need a restoration more robust than a simple filling. Instead, you may benefit from the placement of a custom crown, which we create from a durable and lifelike ceramic material. Our Greensboro, NC, dentist’s office can restore your smile with our ceramic dental crowns!
When A Tooth Needs A Dental Crown
A dental crown is a restoration that caps the tooth, which means we can address a host of restorative concerns. For example, our team can repair tooth decay too severe for a filling, or complete a root canal procedure for an infected tooth. The restoration can reshape malformed teeth and even repair cracks, chips, or broken structure. Placement can improve bite balance and chewing function for some. If you have lost a tooth, then we can use one or two to support a dental bridge and restore your little one’s smile, or one to complete a single tooth dental implant, so you enjoy a complete smile again.
Creating Them From Lifelike Materials
Our team will use ceramic to create our dental crowns. The material is very strong and durable, and can handle daily bite forces and pressures with ease. The material is also long lasting, so your restoration can stay in place for many years to come. Ceramic is also translucent like natural tooth enamel, and can be shaded to offer a more attractive appearance, blending with the rest of your smile.
When you need a crown, we will numb the tooth and then carefully and gently remove structure from it, making room for a dental crown. We then take detailed digital images and measurements of the prepared tooth, which we use in a dental lab setting to design and craft the finished product. When the custom ceramic crown is ready, we will check the fit and make any last-minute adjustments necessary. Finally, we attach the restoration with a powerful bonding agent. You now have a restored tooth, one boasting a lifelike appearance and the ability to remain in place for years to come. Whether you have a chipped tooth, severe decay, or even a missing tooth, we can employ ceramic crowns to help you enjoy your best smile.
If you have any questions about how our team will design and place a ceramic crown, or if you have an issue in your smile that needs attention, then please reach out to our team today.
