Crowns & Cosmetic Tooth Restoration

Everyone wants to have a beautiful, healthy smile. But if you have a fractured, chipped or decayed tooth, it can eat away at your confidence. A crown or tooth cap can restore your wonderful smile in a way that no one will notice.

A crown or cap is used to protect a damaged tooth while providing you with a solution that looks like a real tooth. A properly placed crown can be indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth so you can feel confident in your smile. We gently remove any broken pieces of tooth and decay from the area and create an accurate mold of the surface, which we then send to a laboratory to have the crown created. Once the crown is ready, it can be cemented onto the decayed or fractured tooth.

Because of the way tooth crowns are professionally manufactured in a laboratory, they are extremely strong and reliable. It is important to have a strong crown in order to protect the tooth underneath. At Van Dyke General & Implant Dentistry, we measure the area with great precision so that the crown will fit snugly yet be comfortable without putting pressure on surrounding teeth.

If you have a broken, fractured or severely decayed tooth, a Gainesville dental crown may be the solution to healthier looking smile. The crown is able to hide a broken or decayed tooth, and porcelain crowns are made to match each person’s teeth for perfect camouflaging.

Types of Crowns Available With Your Gainesville Dentist

1. Metal Crowns

Available in stainless steel, gold and silver, metal crowns are the strongest types of crowns that can last a very long time.

2. Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain is our most asked-for type of crown because it is tooth-colored, allowing your crown to be nearly invisible. Porcelain crowns can chip or wear down over time, resulting in the need for replacement.

3. Ceramic Crowns

Ceramic crowns are also tooth-colored, but they are not as strong as other types of crowns. Ceramic is more often utilized for front teeth.

4. Resin Crowns

Resin crowns are generally the cheapest option and also provides a natural look to your tooth. However, resin is significantly weaker than other materials used for crowns and may crack or chip.

Don’t Put Off Getting A Tooth Crown

Have a dental crown Gainesville, FL, residents trust placed before a tooth decays to the point of fracturing. By doing so, you may be able to avoid a root canal in the future, and a crown can protect your tooth from fracturing further. In addition, a crown can also prevent the need to remove a tooth, saving you from needing a bridge or implant.

While a crown can prove to be effective and helpful, it may not be enough to restore your tooth to total health. Some teeth may require root canal therapy in addition to a crown, and sometimes there is not enough of a tooth left to securely fit a crown. In these cases, removal of the tooth or teeth may be necessary, and we can fit you for a bridge or implant.

Crowns can help protect a tooth that is causing you problems, but they can also provide a boost to your confidence, letting you smile a little bigger. Don’t put off restoring your self-confidence or the health of your teeth. Call Van Dyke General & Implant Dentistry to schedule an appointment today with your Gainesville dentist.
