Dental Crown Raleigh, NC
A dental crown is a full coverage restoration that is used to cover a tooth that is badly decayed, or is past the point to be restored with a filling. Crowns are most commonly done after a root canal, or when a large filling wears out. Dental crowns are also used when an inlay or onlay just won't do the trick. Holes made by the treatment of a cavity are more likely to require a crown. Even after a filling is put in a large cavity, a tooth is more likely to break. Crowns ride over the weakened tooth, providing strength and protection against tooth breakage. A broken or cracked tooth is a far more serious matter and much more difficult to treat. Crowns help protect teeth, and are also esthetically pleasing.
Dental Crown Uses
If you are self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, Dr. Ferzli can restore your smile with dental crowns. A porcelain dental crown will return strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. We design our crowns to fit snugly and function and feel as a healthy tooth. A crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment. We use the latest in dental technology to create the most aesthetically pleasing crowns for your smile. With our precise color-matching system we can find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. This means that the only people who know you have a dental crown will be you and your dentist. Typically, our Cary, NC office can design, fit, and place your crowns in just one or two short appointments. Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth. Be sure to see us at least two times each year for professional cleanings and a preventive exam, too.
