We offer dental crowns in Jonesboro, Arkansas, that are tooth-shaped caps made to cover your tooth, improve its appearance, and restore its shape, size, and length.
There are many reasons why one would need a dental crown, and those include:
- To protect a weak tooth from breaking
- To support a severely worn down tooth
- To restore a broken tooth
- To support a tooth with a filling
- To hold a dental bridge in place
- To cover a dental implant
- To disguise severely discolored teeth
- To make a cosmetic modification
- To cover misshaped teeth
This is a product that can benefit both adults and children, and it generally involves two visits to the dentist. The first visit will include Dr. Wagner or Dr. Taylor numbing the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. After the area is numb, your dentist will file or shave the tooth down to allow room for the crown. Once the tooth is shaved, they will make impressions of your tooth and send them to a lab to be custom made for you. You will receive temporary crown that you will wear between your two visits. Your second visit will involve your dentist checking and adjusting the new crown to your bite. When it is the perfect size, shape, length, and color, it will be permanently cemented into place.
