Why Choose Abington Family Dental Care for Dental Crowns?

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is simply a custom-made cap that your dentist permanently places over one of your teeth. Crowns are often used to:

In the past, metals like gold and silver were the go-to choices for crowns. However, many patients dislike metal restorations because they clash so badly with the natural color of teeth. In our office, we frequently use all-ceramic crowns. They blend seamlessly with the surrounding enamel, making it difficult if not impossible for onlookers to spot that you’ve had some dental work done.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

After we decide that you need a crown, we start the process by preparing your tooth. We may have to file it down a bit or fill it in so that it fits well under the restoration and is strong enough to support it. Then, we take impressions of your teeth to ensure that the crown works with your natural bite in a way that is comfortable for you. We give you a temporary crown to wear until your permanent, custom-made restoration arrives from a trustworthy dental lab.

The lab team crafts your porcelain crown with the utmost care and precision. When it is ready, they send it to us. You can then come back to our office so we can install the crown and put the finishes touches on your restored smile.
