In the case that you require a dental crown, you can be confident Thomas Dental will provide the highest level of care and address any of your questions or concerns regarding the process.
Typically when a crown is needed, an initial temporary crown is created while you are at our office. A permanent crown is then created using the mold from your tooth and you return at a later date for the final crown placement.
Crowns are used to cover, protect or improve the appearance of a tooth that has:
- been treated with root canal therapy
- had a large filling without much remaining tooth structure
- been severely worn down or cracked
- discolored or misshaped
Crowns come in a variety of materials including porcelain materials that have a natural appearance for a better cosmetic appearance.
