What Should I Know About Dental Crowns?

March 31, 2022 3:30 pm

Advanced Dentistry of Nevada offers comprehensive dentistry, including natural-looking dental crowns that are ready in just one visit.

A dental crown is a restorative treatment that is also known as a cap because of the way that it covers the top of a tooth. Dental crowns are typically made from ceramic, porcelain, or stainless steel. These materials provide a durable and, in the case of ceramic or porcelain, natural-looking tooth cover.

Dental crowns are a versatile treatment. They can be used to strengthen a decayed or damaged tooth, repair a cracked or broken tooth, support a tooth with an especially large filling, address surface wear and tear, or hide discoloration or a misshapen tooth. Crowns can also be used in restorative procedures such as dental implants or dental bridges.

The Same-Day Dental Crown Procedure

If you’re going to be getting a dental crown, here’s what you can expect:

  1. The first thing the dentist will do is evaluate the state of your tooth.
  2. Your tooth will need to be shaped so that a crown can fit perfectly.
  3. Once the tooth is prepared, the next step is to take mess-free, digital impressions with special software that will be used to design your crown on the computer.
  4. Your crown is custom-crafted in-house with advanced CEREC® technology.
  5. The same day you come in, you leave with your permanent crown!
