What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are dental restorations that are designed to cover the entire portion of your visible tooth. This can strengthen, protect, and reshape damage or decayed teeth. Also called caps, these custom-made restorations get their name because they literally crown decayed or broken teeth in Northampton. The best part is that we can personalize your crown to match the exact size, shape, and shade of your natural smile.

Candidates for Dental Crowns

Because every smile is different, the best way to know if dental crowns are right for you is to come into our office for a consultation. One of our highly trained dentists will carefully examine your smile before recommending this treatment. That said, candidates for dental crowns will typically have:

  • Damaged teeth
  • Largely decayed teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Root canals
  • Missing teeth replaced with dental implants

If you’re affected by any of these issues, contact our office to set up a consultation.

The Dental Crowns Procedure

Typically getting a dental crown will take just two visits to our office. During the first, we will take impressions of the affected area, which are sent to a specialized lab for the fabrication of your dental crowns. We’ll give you a temporary crown to maintain your function and appearance in between appointments. After a few weeks, you’ll come back into our office for the permanent one. We will ensure that you’re satisfied with your personalized crown before placing it on your smile. Then, all that’s left to do is to walk out of our office with a healthy and beautiful set of teeth.
