Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps or covers that encase damaged or decayed teeth. Custom made for each tooth, dental crowns are generally used to repair moderate to severe tooth decay or conditions where little of your original tooth structure remains.
We may recommend a dental crown to:
Hold a broken tooth together
Support a large filling or root canal treatment
Prevent a weak tooth from falling apart
Anchor a dental bridge
Restore a dental implant
It only takes two visits to Pyramid Family Dental Care to design, create, and place your dental crown. During your first appointment with Dr. Stephen Stanley, we will prepare your tooth by gently reshaping it to accommodate the thickness of the crown. Then, we take impressions that are sent to a dental laboratory where your crown will be fabricated. During your second appointment we will permanently cement your permanent crown in place. We will continually check your dental crown at subsequent checkup appointments to make sure it remains strong and healthy.
We are excited to restore your smile and save damaged teeth with our high-quality dental crowns in Hamden, Connecticut. If you would like to learn more about dental crowns, we invite you to contact our skilled dentist and dental team today. We are happy to answer all of your questions and help you schedule your appointment!
