A dental crown is basically a tooth-colored “cap” that fits over an existing tooth. Once placed, the dental crown both looks and functions just like a natural tooth, restoring its strength and aesthetic appeal.
A dental crown is use for a number of reasons, primarily:
Dental crowns are also used in dental implant procedures, as dental implants are basically dental crowns fastened to titanium posts in the jaw.
At Cedar Creek Dental, our Rigby dental crowns are placed in a single appointment. Rather than going home with a temporary crown that runs the risk of falling off, you will leave our office with a brand new, permanent dental crown.
The procedure is rather simple:
It only takes about 10 to 20 minutes for your dental crown to be created and placed.
Due to the amount of tooth that needs to be trimmed off before a crown can be placed, crowns end up being rather thick. This thickness, combined with the materials we use, ensures that they are very durable and long-lasting. The porcelain materials that we use at Cedar Creek Dental also ensure that your dental crown is powerful and lasts for a long time, restoring all of the functionality of your natural teeth.
When properly taken care of, our Rigby dental crowns will last many years.
We make sure to create your dental crown to be consistent with the shape and color of the rest of your teeth. Once your Rigby dental crown is placed, no one will be able to tell which teeth are natural and which is a crown. Your smile will be good-looking and consistent.
