Why Choose Galleria Dental for Dental Crowns?

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Dental Crown?

Crowns are used to restore the function, strength, and appearance of damaged teeth. One advantage of crowns is their ability to treat a wide variety of dental issues, making many patients a candidate for them. If you suffer form one or more of the following issues, dental crowns may be right for you:

The Dental Crown Process

After we have determined that you’re a good candidate for a dental crown, we can begin the treatment process, which generally takes two appointments. During the first visit, the tooth is cleaned and prepped, which may involve building it up or shaving down a small amount of enamel, depending on the state of the tooth. Then, impressions are taken and sent off to a dental lab, where your crown will be carefully crafted. While this is occurring, you will wear a temporary plastic-like crown to protect your tooth. A few weeks later, when it’s ready, you’ll return to our office and the finished crown will be placed with a powerful bonding cement.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

One enormous benefit of dental crowns is their versatility. They can be used to correct several different kinds of imperfections in your smile, whether structural or cosmetic, in just one treatment. Another advantage is the fact that they’re constructed of all-ceramic materials. Ceramic is perfect at emulating natural tooth enamel, right down to the way light reflects off of it. Additionally, they are custom-made to suit your smile and blend right in with the surrounding teeth. No one except our dental team should be able to even tell that you got dental work done on that tooth! Dental crowns are also incredible because they can last up to fifteen years if you take proper care of them. That entails regular brushing, flossing, and checkups and cleanings with Dr. Tolliver and our team.
