If your tooth has sustained damage but does not need to be extracted, our dentist may recommend a dental crown to restore and protect it. While crowns can be made of many materials, our office uses only porcelain to help ensure the most natural final result possible. Porcelain looks and feels like your natural teeth, providing you with a beautiful, long-lasting result for your oral health and smile. Dental crowns, or caps, are versatile restorations that may be recommended for a number of purposes. Dr. Olivia Park may recommend a crown to:
  • Protect a tooth after a root canal treatment
  • Restore teeth that have experienced cracking or other damage
  • Cover and finish a dental implant
  • Attach and anchor a dental bridge
  • Improve a tooth that is misshapen
  • Strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak
  • Support a tooth that has a large filling and little natural tooth structure remaining
  • Improve the appearance of your smile
When you receive a dental crown, plan on two appointments to complete your treatment. At the first appointment, our dentist will prepare your tooth to receive the crown and take impressions. A temporary crown will be provided to protect the tooth until your final crown is completed. Once the final crown is ready, you will return for your second appointment, and our dentist will bond the crown into place.
