If you need to repair a missing tooth or change the appearance of a discolored or unattractive existing crown, an all-porcelain dental crown from McKee Dental Associates in Matthews may be the solution. If you have a broken or decaying tooth, you will likely need to substitute the weakened tooth structure with new material such as porcelain which mimics natural tooth structure. A crown protects the entire apparent region of a tooth and provides it with a whole new exterior coat. Crowns cover a larger surface area than fillings and are made of a much tougher material. A filling usually only covers a small portion of a tooth. As a result, dental crowns are an efficient and cosmetically pleasing way to repair broken, fragile, or damaged teeth.

WHAT ARE THE CAPABILITIES OF A DENTAL CROWN IN MATTHEWS AND SOUTHPARK?

A Dental Crown is an extremely reliable cure for severe dental complications caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Crowns are made of either high-grade porcelain or porcelain fixed to metal. To cure the most severe dental conditions, stronger porcelain and metal products are preferred. Crowns can be used as a long-term alternative where there has been unintended injury resulting in missing teeth, or where teeth have broken out due to heavy wear or as a result of old fillings fracturing.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIT A DENTAL CROWN?

Generally the dental crown treatment requires a single visit. But in some cases, to get the optimum results, you might need to come back for another visit. In the latter case, you will be fitted with a temporary restoration and asked to return in a few weeks for the full restoration. You will never be without your teeth!

KEY BENEFITS OF DENTAL CROWNS:

  • Restores badly broken or decayed teeth
  • Looks natural
  • Fixes “smile” and functional chewing issues
  • Often essential to maintain the tooth’s strength after a root canal treatment.
