A dental crown is one of the most common dental procedures used today for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. A dental crown will restore strength and beauty to your natural tooth, avoiding the possibility of tooth loss as a result of damage or disease.
Darien restorative and cosmetic dentist Dr. David Pereira places dental crowns at Dental Arts of Darien using a variety of high quality materials, chosen to suit the location of the affected tooth and desired results.
In most cases, a high quality porcelain crown is recommended for durability and aesthetics, providing a natural looking result that will last for years to come.
Dental Crowns: What To Consider
A dental crown may be recommended for a range of dental health and cosmetic concerns:
- Damaged tooth
- Discolored tooth
- Misshapen tooth
- Support a partial denture or bridge
- After a root canal to strengthen the tooth
Dr. Pereira will discuss your dental crown options prior to your procedure, taking the time for a thorough examination and discussion of your personal concerns to ensure that your treatment will support a lasting, comfortable smile.
Dental Crowns: What To Expect
The dental crown procedure is typically a multi step process with minimal discomfort, performed in our Darien dentist office. Your procedure will begin with impressions of the area to be treated, which Dr. Pereira will use to order your custom fit and color matched crown.
To prepare the tooth for the dental crown, Dr. Pereira will then remove a minimal amount of tooth structure for attaching the crown and addressing any dental or cosmetic concerns being treated. A temporary crown may be placed while your new one is being fabricated in a dental lab.
At the next appointment, Dr. Pereira will permanently place your new dental restoration, making any necessary adjustments to the tooth surface for a secure, natural looking fit and comfortable result.
Dental crowns will last for many years with proper dental hygiene and routine care. During routine visits, Dr. Pereira and his staff will monitor your dental restorations, looking for any signs of wear or damage that can be easily repaired.
