A dental crown is one of the most common procedures used today for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. Atlanta dentist Dr. Deborah King places dental crowns in her Buckhead dentist office using a variety of materials, depending on the location of the affected tooth and desired results.
In most cases, a high quality ceramic crown is recommended for durability and aesthetics, providing a natural looking result that will last for years to come.
Dental Crowns: What To Consider
A dental crown may be recommended for a range of dental health and cosmetic concerns:
- Damaged tooth
- Discolored tooth
- Misshapen tooth
- Support a partial denture or bridge
- After a root canal to strengthen the tooth
Dr. King will discuss your dental crown options prior to your procedure, taking the time for a thorough examination and discussion of your personal concerns to ensure that your treatment will support a lasting, comfortable smile.
Dental Crowns: What To Expect
The dental crown procedure is typically a multi step process with minimal discomfort, performed in our Buckhead dentist office. Your procedure will begin with impressions of the area to be treated, which Dr. King will use to order your custom fit and color matched crown.
To prepare the tooth for the dental crown, Dr. King will then remove a minimal amount of tooth structure for attaching the crown and addressing any dental or cosmetic concerns being treated. A temporary crown may be placed while your new one is being fabricated in a dental lab.
At the next appointment, Dr. King will permanently place your new dental restoration, making any necessary adjustments to the tooth surface for a secure, natural looking fit and comfortable result.
Dental crowns will last for many years with proper dental hygiene and routine care. During routine visits, Dr. King and her staff will monitor your dental restorations, looking for any signs of wear or damage that can be easily repaired.
