A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance. Dr. Guarnieri may recommend a dental crown in Longwood, Florida, to:
– Hold a weak tooth together
– Restore a broken tooth
– Support a dental bridge
– Restore a tooth that has extensive decay
– Restore a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
– Improve the appearance of a tooth
Before placing a crown, our dentist will examine the tooth and make sure that it can support a dental crown. The tooth is then shaped to allow room for the crown. If a tooth is badly damaged or broken, our dentist may build it up to make it large enough to support the crown. At this point, impressions are taken of the tooth and of the surrounding teeth so that your crown can be custom made. Once your dental crown is ready, our dentist will check the fit and color and make any needed adjustments. Then the crown is properly positioned and cemented in place.
