Learn What Dental Crowns Can Do For Your Smile
A dental crown can remake a smile so you look your best and have a smile that is durable and functional. At Paul David Epstein DMD & Associates in Burlington, MA, your dentist creates and places realistic porcelain crowns. You'll be amazed at their beauty and versatility.
Why place a dental crown?
A dental crown is a restoration made from high-grade porcelain. Crafted to fit over a damaged tooth, a crown helps the patient who has:
- A darkly stained tooth
- A tooth which requires a remodel in shape and/or size
- A large filling or substantial cracking or chips in a front or back tooth
- Undergone root canal therapy
- A dental implant which requires restoration
Getting a dental crown
It takes two appointments with Dr. Epstein in his Burlington, MA, office. Your dentist will inspect and X-ray the tooth in question to determine if a crown is a proper choice.
Then, he takes oral impressions for the dental lab to use in fabricating the crown. Also, Dr. Epstein will shape the healthy enamel for a proper crown fit. He may place a temporary crown over your tooth.
When you come back to the office, your dentist will take off the transitional restoration and replace it with your beautiful new crown. A durable cement will retain it for years as you brush and floss and get your routine prophylactic care at Paul David Epstein DMD & Associates.
Other uses for dental crowns
Dental crowns support fixed bridgework consisting of one or more teeth. The crowns attach to adjoining natural teeth on opposite ends of the smile gap. This kind of tooth replacement option has served patients for generations, providing good oral function and a complete, attractive smile. Additionally, Dr. Epstein employs porcelain crowns as the finishing touch on dental implants, the most effective and sought after tooth replacement available today.
