At Family Dental Health, you don’t have to be of royal decent to get the royal treatment. If you have a tooth that’s been compromised by disease, decay, trauma, or general wear-and-tear and are in need of a restoration, we can provide you with a beautiful porcelain crown fit for royalty. Under the attentive care of Dr. David Case and our outstanding team, you might even feel like you’re sitting on a throne, rather than a dental chair.
Do I need a crown?
You may require a crown if you have a tooth that has been:
- Broken, cracked or chipped
- Badly decayed
- Damaged by disease or infection
- Worn down from teeth grinding
- Knocked out by injury
- Missing from gum disease or other causes
How does it work?
There are two types of crowns – partial crowns and full crowns. Partial crowns are used when there is remaining healthy tooth structure left. Your natural tooth will be prepared to ensure the strongest bond and the crown will be placed like a cap over the top to restore the tooth in form and function.
If you are missing a tooth entirely, but still have a healthy enough jawbone to support a dental implant, we can fit you with a full crown that will be anchored with the help of an implant. This is the most secure, most life-like way to replace a missing tooth. Learn more about how dental implants preserve your oral and bone health on our Implants page.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of porcelain crowns are numerous, and range from functional to cosmetic to health benefits:
- Tooth colored porcelain blends in seamlessly with natural teeth
- Fills the gap for a complete smile
- Preserves integrity of the tooth
- Stabilize surrounding teeth & bite
- Prevent further damage & decay
- Enjoy your favorite foods comfortably
- Speak naturally
- Smile with confidence!
