Restore Your Smile with a Dental Crown
Dental crowns are a versatile treatment that can improve the strength and appearance of your smile. If you have a tooth that has been weakened by damage or decay or need to replace a tooth with a dental implant, our team at Beautiful Smiles By Design can create a custom dental crown to restore your smile. At our Miami, FL, practice, Dr. Roy Greenberg and Dr. Laurence Stein use advanced materials, such as IPS e.max® and zirconia, to craft highly aesthetic and durable crowns. After only two visits to our office, you can enjoy the benefits of a fully restored smile.
How Dental Crowns Work
Also known as dental caps, crowns fit over the top of weakened teeth to provide support and protection. Our team can use crowns to address a range of concerns, including:
- Teeth damaged by decay
- Broken teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Worn teeth
- An uneven or misaligned bite
- Disproportionately small teeth
Dental crowns can also anchor a bridge or replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. In addition, we often use crowns to protect teeth after root canal therapy or the placement of a large filling. In some cases, we may recommend a crown for a cosmetic concern, such as severe discoloration. The best way to determine if a crown is right for you is to visit our office for a consultation.
A Better Smile in Two Visits
If Dr. Greenberg or Dr. Stein recommend a dental crown, it typically takes only two appointments to complete the treatment. During your first appointment, we will remove any decay or damaged tissue and reshape the tooth to accommodate the crown. This process ensures your crown fits comfortably with your smile, without appearing unnatural. We then take an impression of your tooth and send the information to our lab.
By protecting your tooth with a dental crown, you can avoid more complicated treatment in the future.
Generally, it takes one to two weeks for a dental crown to return from the lab. During this time, we may fit you with a temporary crown to help protect your prepared tooth. When the crown is ready, you can return to our office. We will check the fit and appearance of your crown to ensure you are satisfied. We will then bond the crown to your tooth for a fully restored smile.
Advanced Materials for Exceptional Results
At Beautiful Smiles By Design, we can craft your custom crown from a range of materials, including traditional gold or porcelain. However, we prefer to use our more advanced options, such as zirconia, which offer increased strength and appearance. Zirconia is a unique material which allows us to create crowns that are strong and highly aesthetic. With a variety of kinds of zirconia available, we can balance strength and beauty to find the perfect fit for your unique needs.
