Got a cracked tooth in Huntersville? You might be a candidate for a crown from Dennis J. Coleman DDS. Placing dental crowns (sometimes called caps) can make your entire mouth function better.
- adds strength to a tooth that has a large filling or has been injured,
- can correct bite misalignments, and
- is usually necessary after a root canal.
In a dental implant procedure, attaching the crown to the abutment is the final step.
Crowns are also used extensively for purely cosmetic problems: yellow teeth, stained teeth, too-small teeth, and teeth that are misshapen.
Crowns typically require at least two office visits. On the first visit, the dentist will prepare the tooth and take an impression for the dental lab. Then, the dentist will make a temporary crown for the patient to use until the permanent crown is ready.
Dental crowns can last for many years, but are not designed to last forever. Depending on your oral hygiene and other chewing habits, crowns can last for years. The more you grind your teeth, crunch on ice, or use your teeth as tools, the more you wear down your crown.
