Sometimes we may put on a novelty crown just for laughs, but when taking a quick look in the mirror, we feel a slight confidence boost. A dental crown can provide that same effect when you have a tooth that is in bad shape. Dental crowns are also called synthetic caps, and they are usually composed of a porcelain-like material. To restore your tooth to its natural appearance and function, Dr. Kristine Houck Morris, will custom-design a dental crown for your mouth only.
What Can a Dental Crown Do For Me?
At her Easton, MD, dental office, your dentist may recommend a dental crown to repair your smile for numerous reasons. Dental crowns are a dependable solution for a wide range of dental problems. They help:
- Restore a severely cracked tooth
- Cap a tooth after a root canal procedure
- Rebuild a tooth that has damage from decay
- Cover the tooth after dental implant restoration
- Enhance a tooth by changing the color or shape
- Protect a worn-down tooth
There are several benefits to restoring your tooth with a dental crown, and our doctor is pleased to discuss them during your visit.
What Can I Expect From the Procedure?
Placing the permanent crown usually requires two visits to our Easton, MD, office. Your dentist must reduce the size of your tooth to accommodate the crown. First, an impression is made from your existing tooth to design the dental crown. After it's sent off to our laboratory, you'll receive a custom-made, permanent crown, which she will place during your second visit.
If you are considering dental restorations, dental crowns are a durable and long-lasting way to enhance your smile and give your oral health a boost. Your dentist, Dr. Kristine Houck Morris can discuss your case and address your smile goals during the initial consultation. For more information about dental crowns and bridgework, visit our website.
