Dental crowns are a type of restoration in which the damaged tooth is completely encapsulated by a porcelain fabrication. The crown is bonded to the tooth for a secure fit in order to allow for normal activity in the mouth.
The Beavers Dentistry team can help you if you are in need of a dental crown. We are experienced in providing dental crowns and have been helping our Cary clients with this service for years.
What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are a method of restoring a tooth to its former glory by putting a cap over the original tooth or an implant. We start the process by forming a dental impression of your teeth to make sure that there is a tight bond between the crown and the outside of the tooth. We then cast the crown that fits on top of your tooth. In the next step we prepare the tooth and bond the crown to the tooth.
What are Dental Crowns made of?
The dental crowns that we make at Beavers Dentistry are made from porcelain. This material is durable, long-lasting, and can match the shade of the rest of the teeth in your mouth. Porcelain crowns are an effective way to provide the strength of a tooth, combined with the look and feel of a tooth.
How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
Dental crowns should last a minimum of 15 years. Crowns are made to be durable and long-lasting but will require proper treatment like the rest of your teeth. Well maintained crowns can last 25 or more years.
Does the Procedure Hurt?
The process of placing a crown on a tooth is painless and should cause little discomfort. We at Beavers Dentistry are dedicated to your experience at our practice. We want every procedure to be easy and pain-free!
