Dental Crowns Restore Natural Beauty & Health To Your Teeth
At Longwood Dental Group, cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry are our specialty. Our Longwood Dental Group Prosthodontists are skilled artists in the field of restorative cosmetic dentistry.
Dental crowns are a dental cosmetic restoration used to improve or strengthen your tooth. Dental crowns are a versatile tool. Tooth crowns are prescribed for badly decayed teeth, broken teeth or cracked teeth that cannot be easily restored with a dental filling. Dental crowns are also used for teeth that have had root canals and are placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth.
Dental crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to a gold substrate for strength and beauty. And with new dental technology, dental crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain.
Today’s dental technology and dental crown materials, combined with the superior skills of the Longwood Dental Group Cosmetic Dentistry team, offer the highest quality cosmetic dental care and dental restoration excellence.
Creating A Dental Crown
Dental crowns are prescribed for damaged teeth, decayed teeth or broken teeth. The tooth is prepared by eliminating surface structure. After fabrication the crown is cemented to the prepared tooth. Dental crowns restore natural beauty and health of teeth.
With proper care, your porcelain crown and beautiful smile will last for years!
Our experienced cosmetic dentists are committed to offering our patients the most advanced and trusted technology available today.
Caring For Ceramic Crowns
The life span of a crown depends on the amount of “wear and tear” the crown is exposed to, how well you follow good oral hygiene practices and your personal habits. Avoid habits such as: chewing ice, biting your fingernails, using your teeth to open packages and grinding or clenching your teeth. Find out how best to care for your dental crown.
We Use Leading-Edge CEREC Crown Technology
We love having the CEREC Crown solution in our practice because our PATIENTS love it! Why? Crowns are typically completed in multiple visits. During the first visit, after a tooth impression was taken, a dental lab makes the crown while you wear a temporary crown for a couple of weeks. CEREC crowns are completed in one visit. And, they’re not only faster, but they’re beautiful and strong too.
