Dental Crowns

Ideal for protecting a damaged or cracked tooth, crowns at Eventide Family Dentistry can be a great solution for improving your smile. A crown can also cover up any discoloration in a natural tooth. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over a problem tooth to improve strength, size and appearance.

The crown procedure is simple:

  • First, we will anesthetize the area of the problem tooth. Once the area is completely numb, the tooth is shaped to ensure an appropriate fit for the new crown.
  • Next, we will take an impression of the natural tooth to use in the construction of the crown. The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory to create your crown. This process usually takes around three to four weeks. Meanwhile, we apply a sturdy, temporary crown over the problem tooth while your customary crown is being manufactured.
  • Once your customary crown is ready, you will come back to Eventide Family Dentistry and the crown will be applied with a special adhesive. Now you have a bright, healthy-looking new tooth!

Crown placement can offer several benefits:

  • Long term durability
  • Protection from further decay, infection and cracking
  • Improved chewing and talking
  • An improved, natural and healthier smile
