A tooth damaged by deep decay, severe wear, or a fracture can cause discomfort, negatively impacting your ability to eat and impairing oral health. It’s important to restore an injured tooth right away to avoid acute pain or an awkward break that requires emergency care.
The doctors at Brush Country Dental & Specialty Center design and apply custom crowns to renew compromised teeth. Essentially, a crown is a tooth-shaped covering that sits atop your natural tooth to restore form, function, and comfort.
Dr. Pruski and Dr. Morgan design custom crowns to fit comfortably and withstand natural chewing forces. Depending on your specific needs, the doctor may choose precious metal, porcelain fused to metal, or ceramic to create your crown. Porcelain crowns look like natural teeth and are almost always used to restore teeth that show when you smile.
Expect two to three office visits to design, create, and apply your permanent crown.
