Your dentist usually has two options when repairing a damaged or weakened tooth: extract the tooth altogether or restore it using a dental crownsdental crown. While extraction may seem like the easiest option, a missing tooth comes with a slew of side effects which could affect your dental health in the future. Learn more about how dental crowns can solve your tooth problems with Dr. Henry Rodriguez-Martin at Brilliant Smiles Dental in Delray Beach, FL.

What can a dental crown do for me? 
Dental crowns are a versatile treatment. Dentists can use dental crowns to:

  • strengthen a weakened tooth
  • improve the appearance of a misshapen or stained tooth
  • stabilize a tooth with a large filling
  • cover a dental implant to replace a missing tooth
  • restore the biting surface of a worn down tooth
  • to hold a permanent dental bridge in place
  • protect and strengthen a tooth after root canal therapy

Your dentist can help you determine if a dental crown is your best treatment option and in what ways it will benefit you.

Dental Crowns in Delray Beach, FL
The process for crowns begins with your dentist preparing the tooth to receive the crown. This involves removing small amounts of enamel from the sides and top of the tooth. This is to make room for the crown’s width and height and to give the tooth the same shape as the inside of the crown. This ensures a solid bond and snug fit between the restoration and your tooth. With the tooth prepared, your dentist takes an impression of your mouth. The dental laboratory which customizes the crown uses this mold as a basis for the crown’s design. Your dentist will place a temporary crown to protect the tooth until the laboratory finishes the final restoration. This process takes about two weeks. At a second appointment, your dentist removes the temporary crown and replaces it with the permanent restoration.
