Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta expertly crafts dental crowns with skill and technology insuring that your crown will be both functional and aesthetically beautiful. Dental crowns are used to cover decayed, cracked or damaged teeth. When a dentist diagnosis that you need a crown, it may be to strengthen a weak tooth or to enhance a tooth’s appearance by covering the damaged tooth. A dental crown functions like a “cap,” that sits over an existing tooth covering the entire structure of the tooth. Crowns seal the damaged area and restores normal function to the tooth, enabling you to smile confidently and chew without pain.
Dental Crown Procedure
A dental crown can be completed in two office visits. During the first visit, an impression is taken of the tooth to be covered and a temporary crown is placed in the mouth. The permanent crown is carefully designed in a qualified laboratory exclusively devoted to crafting natural looking tooth replacements. During the procedure, all the damaged tooth material is removed. At your returning visit, the permanent dental crown is fitted comfortably and then cemented into place for a permanent restoration.
