Crowns are designed to “cap” over the biting surface of a certain tooth, protecting and rebuilding the natural structure. They can be used in a variety of situations, including:
- Decay that’s too severe to effectively treat with a filling
- A direct injury
- General weakening over time
- Purely aesthetic concerns regarding shade or shape
- The finishing touch for a dental implant or root canal procedure
Typically, it will take around two appointments to receive your new dental crown. During your first visit, one of our skilled doctors will prepare the affected tooth and take impressions to send off to a trusted, nearby lab. Once our Williamsville location has received the finished product, we’ll securely place it and confirm that you’re happy with the result.
Dental crowns can also be used in conjunction with dental bridges, which themselves offer a sturdy reconstructive solution for patients who’ve lost one or more teeth in a row and are dissatisfied with the relative looseness of dentures. This custom-made prosthetic is fixed within your smile, and the additional crowns serve as “anchors,” fitting over adjacent healthy teeth. At Amherst Dental Group, we can also design a dental bridge for patients that will attach over dental implants for a more conservative solution.
