Our mission is more than just restoring smiles; it’s about providing comprehensive care that ensures each patient experiences the highest quality of life with a smile they can proudly wear. Dental crowns are a common prosthodontic service and one of many services we provide residents of the Triangle area of North Carolina.

Prosthodontic dentistry is distinct from general dentistry through its specialized focus on repairing and replacing teeth. A prosthodontist is akin to an architect of dental restoration—meticulously designing, crafting, and fitting dental prosthetics that not only restore functionality but also mimic the natural appearance and feel of your teeth. Our expertise covers the full spectrum of restorative solutions, whether it’s dentures, dental implants, dental crowns, or bridges.

Dental Crowns – A Cornerstone of Oral Health

Dental crowns are indispensable in the realm of dental restoration. Acting as a cap for your damaged or decayed teeth, crowns are designed to restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of a tooth. They are often necessary when a tooth has suffered significant damage that cannot be repaired by fillings alone or to complete other procedures such as dental implants or root canal therapy.

The creation of dental crowns starts with a thorough examination and preparation of the damaged tooth, followed by taking an impression to ensure a precise fit. These impressions serve as a mold for the crown, which can be crafted from various materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these materials to provide durability and a natural look. Porcelain and ceramic crowns are particularly favored for their ability to mimic the color and texture of natural teeth. Once created, the crown is carefully cemented onto the prepared tooth. With proper care, dental crowns can last between 5 to 15 years, making them a long-term solution for restoring dental health and functionality.

Key Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Restoration of tooth functionality – Crowns allow you to eat, chew, and speak without discomfort.
  • Protection against further damage – By encasing the vulnerable tooth, crowns safeguard it from further decay and injury.
  • Esthetic enhancement – Crafted to match your natural teeth, crowns improve the overall appearance of your smile.
  • Durability – With proper care, dental crowns can last many years, making them a long-term solution for tooth restoration.

After the procedure is complete, ensuring the longevity of your dental crowns involves a commitment to aftercare. Regular check-ups, maintaining good oral hygiene, and avoiding habits that could compromise your prosthetics are crucial to preserving the health and appearance of your restored teeth.
