Damaged or missing teeth can pose a health risk to the rest of your smile. Fortunately, the team at Davie Advanced Dentistry can restore your overall oral health with beautiful, custom-made dental crowns. Our dentists in Davie, FL, are proud to offer stunning dental restorations for patients looking to complete their smile, boosting their confidence and giving them a beautiful set of pearly whites.
Dental crowns are protective tooth caps custom-made to fit over your natural tooth. Our dentists recommend a crown to cover a vulnerable tooth, such as one that was severely injured, extensively treated or has undergone severe wear and tear. Crowns blend with your smile’s natural shape and color, all while being durable enough to keep up with your daily habits. These restorations are so lifelike that you may even forget you have one!
Dental crowns, often referred to as tooth caps, completely cover a damaged tooth to prevent further damage and protect its structure. Crowns match your natural teeth’s shape, size, and color, providing strength and aesthetic appeal.
Dr. Abbo may recommend dental crowns to patients with the following:
Dental crowns are used to restore teeth that have been significantly damaged due to decay, fractures, or wear and tear. They provide a protective covering, preventing further damage and preserving the remaining healthy tooth structure.
Crowns can improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or have cosmetic imperfections. They are custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, creating a seamless, beautiful smile.
If you have a weakened or cracked tooth, a crown can reinforce its structural integrity, allowing you to chew and bite comfortably. This is particularly beneficial for posterior teeth that endure more pressure during chewing.
Dental crowns are durable and can last for many years with proper care. They withstand the forces of regular biting and chewing, ensuring a long-lasting solution.
Crowns are tailored to your unique dental needs. Dentists take impressions to ensure a precise fit and natural appearance, making them virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth.
Your journey to a perfect smile begins with a consultation at Davie Advanced Dentistry. During this initial visit, Dr. Abbo will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and formulate a personalized treatment plan.
To ensure a snug fit, we’ll remove a small portion of your natural tooth. This step is crucial for creating a stable base for the crown. Dr. Abbo will ensure this step is painless with local anesthesia and your preference for dental sedation.
Precise impressions of your teeth are taken to craft a crown that fits seamlessly into your mouth. We take pride in using the latest technology to guarantee the perfect fit. While your permanent crown is being meticulously fabricated in our laboratory, you’ll receive a temporary crown to protect your prepared tooth.
Once your custom crown is ready, Dr. Abbo will expertly bond it to your tooth, ensuring that it blends with your smile. Follow his aftercare instructions to ensure a durable and natural-looking restoration for years.
Dental crowns can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years, or even longer, with proper care and maintenance. This duration can vary depending on factors such as the material used for the crown and how well you take care of your oral health.
Dental insurance policies differ, so coverage for dental crowns can vary. In many cases, dental insurance may partially cover the cost of dental crowns, especially if the procedure is considered necessary for your oral health. It’s advisable to check with your dental insurance provider to understand the extent of your coverage.
No, the dental crown procedure isn’t painful. Dentists use local anesthesia to numb the area, ensuring that you don’t feel any discomfort during the process. After the procedure, you might experience some mild discomfort or sensitivity, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and typically subsides within a few days.
Dental crowns and dental fillings serve different purposes. Crowns are often recommended for more extensive damage, such as large cavities, cracked teeth, or after a root canal procedure. Your dentist will evaluate your oral health to determine which procedure fits your needs.
