Dental Crowns – Peabody

Protect Your Damaged Tooth

Woman smiling outsideThe tooth enamel is the strongest material in the entire body. It is even stronger than your bones! However, it isn’t completely resilient to damage. If one or more of your teeth have become damaged by decay or an injury, a dental crown may be exactly what you need. Dental crowns are placed over the chewing surface of a compromised tooth to build it up and protect it from additional damage. Continue reading to learn more about dental crowns.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown, sometimes called a “cap,” is used for many restorative needs and is often appropriate for cosmetic treatments. A crown can be used to:

  • Protect a tooth that has been treated for a large cavity or root canal
  • Prevent a tooth with a deep crack from splitting
  • Build up a tooth that is worn down
  • Anchor a dental bridge in place
  • Complete a dental implant restoration
  • Transform a tooth that is permanently stained or misshapen

Dr. Saati usually recommends a crown made of porcelain fused to metal for its strength and aesthetic appeal. Once bonded into place, no one will be able to tell that you have a crown.

The Dental Crown Process

Receiving a crown usually takes only two visits to the dentist. At the first, Dr. Saati delivers a local anesthetic and then gently removes any decay as well as a small portion of the tooth structure. This must be done to make room for the crown and to ensure that your bite remains the same. You’re then given a temporary crown to wear while our dental lab constructs the permanent one based on an exact impression of your tooth.

When your final restoration is ready, we will let you know so you can return to the dental office to have it placed. If everything looks and feels great, you are free to show off your restored smile!
