Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover damaged teeth up to the gums. Dental crowns are most often used to treat moderate to severe tooth decay or damage. Dr. Samuel Evans Jr., our experienced dentist, may suggest a dental crown in Fairmont, North Carolina to:
- Repair extensive tooth decay or damage
- Prevent a cracked tooth from breaking
- Hold a broken tooth together
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Complete a dental implant
- Improve your ability to eat and chew
It generally takes only two visits to our comfortable dental office to design, fabricate, and place a dental crown. The first appointment is dedicated to ensuring we design a crown that will fit perfectly with your natural bite. This involves gently reshaping your tooth and taking molds and impressions of your smile. All of the information gathered is then used to create your custom dental crown at a dental laboratory. While waiting for your crown to come back, we will fit you with a temporary crown. During your second appointment, we will make any final adjustments to the permanent dental crown and cement it into place.
At our dental office, we are excited to offer both porcelain and gold crowns as requested. If you would like to learn about dental crowns and how they can transform a damaged smile, please contact our dental office today. We are excited to help restore your smile.
