What Are Dental Crowns?
Also called “caps,” dental crowns are used to cover teeth for a variety of reasons. From fixing chips and cracks to protecting a tooth after a root canal, dental crowns are very versatile. Our dentist in Farmington, AR offers natural-looking dental crowns to help provide strength to your teeth. To create your crown, we’ll bring you in to take impressions of the tooth needing a crown. To ensure a proper fit, we’ll remove some of the tooth structure before we take impressions. Before you leave, we’ll fit and place a plastic temporary crown to make sure the tooth is protected while the lab creates your permanent crown. Once your permanent crown is ready, you’ll visit us for a fitting and then we’ll bond the crown to your tooth. You’ll leave our office with a healthy-looking smile and a restoration that functions like your natural tooth.
