What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that is designed to rebuild and protect your natural tooth. It is one of the best options for treating severely damaged or cracked teeth. With a dental crown from Trailhead Advanced Dentistry, you can restore your smile, eliminate pain and discomfort, and reduce the risk of future complications related to your oral health.
How It Works
To begin the process, you’ll come and see Dr. Reiter for a consultation. He will diagnose your oral health issues and help you decide if one or more dental crowns may be appropriate for your treatment.
Dr. Reiter will remove any decay or damage to the tooth while preparing it for the crown. This will ensure the longevity of the restoration and create the ideal shape for the final crown.
BUILDING THE DENTAL CROWN
Once your tooth has been prepared, Dr. Reiter will take digital scans of your tooth and send this to a dental lab. A team of experienced technicians at the lab will use the latest technology to build a custom-fitted, durable crown. A temporary crown will be placed and a follow up appointment will be scheduled to complete your beautiful new crown.
FINAL CROWN PLACEMENT
Once your permanent crown arrives from the lab, you will come in for your final appointment. Dr. Reiter will gently remove your temporary crown and place your new crown to make sure it fits perfectly. Then, he will bond it into place permanently.
Missing a tooth? Not a candidate for implants or looking for an alternative? Dental bridges are an excellent treatment option for this! Neighboring teeth are prepared similarly to crowns and a finely-crafted final bridge is placed, filling in the missing space.
