Mansfield Dental Crowns
Strengthen Your Teeth With Custom Porcelain Crowns
A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a prosthetic covering that placed over the tooth, covering the whole surface. The crown restores the size and shape of the natural tooth and can be used to correct a variety of problems. Orchard Family Dental provides dental crowns for patients in our Mansfield, TX dental office.
A Seamless & Natural Appearance
Dental crowns can be made with a few different materials, but porcelain crowns are preferable for a natural appearance, as they mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Our Mansfield dentists offer high-quality porcelain crowns that are designed to match your natural tooth’s color, size, and shape to provide a lasting restoration.
Dental crowns are used to correct problems and strength teeth, such as:
- Cosmetic flaws
- Teeth damaged by decay
- Teeth with large fillings
- Root canal
- Fractured filings
- A missing tooth, with a dental implant
The Dental Crown Procedure
Dental crowns require two dental appointments. The dentist will take an impression of the tooth at the first visit. This mold is used to make a custom dental crown to fit over your tooth or dental implant, as well as to make a temporary crown to wear until your permanent crown is crafted in the laboratory. After numbing your tooth, your Mansfield dentist will prepare your tooth for the crown by removing decayed areas and shaping the surface of your tooth. If a temporary crown is used, it will be placed at this time.
About three weeks later, you will return to the office for a second visit. During this visit, the temporary crown is removed. The tooth will be cleaned and the permanent crown will be placed and checked to ensure that the fit is accurate. Once the dentist has verified the bite and spacing, the crown will be cemented in place, creating a permanent restoration.
