Dental crowns help strengthen broken, cracked, and discolored teeth. Your Durango dentist can shape a crown to fit your tooth perfectly in order to help improve the appearance, size, and durability of the tooth.
The process is simple and easy. First, Dr. Belt gently applies anesthesia to the area around the tooth so you don’t feel a thing. Then, he removes any old mercury fillings and decay from the tooth before shaping it for the new crown. A precise impression is then taken to provide a 3-D image of the tooth to be sent to a professional laboratory where the crown will be fabricated using FDA approved dental materials. Dr. Belt then creates a temporary crown for your comfort while the final crown is finished at the lab. When your permanent crown is ready, you will come back to Durango Dental and your Durango dentist will apply it for you to give you a brand new, bright smile!
The benefits of a dental crown are:
• Long-lasting durability
• Protection from decay, cracks, and infection
• Improved ability to chew and speak
• A natural, improved and healthy smile
