Some our patients at Dental Care Today in Fishers may need a dental crown as a solution to improve their smile and overall oral health. A crown is a cap or covering that protects a tooth that is weak, damaged, or otherwise compromised.
Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. We usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.
Dental crowns are, in fact, among the most common restorations in dentistry. They fit easily over your tooth, much the way a thimble fits over your finger. Millions of patients across the country have benefitted from having a crown placed in their mouth.
Dental crowns may not be the answer to every dental issue. Nothing is! But rest assured, they are nothing to be worried about. In fact, they are among the more important procedures at our disposal.
At Dental Care Today in Fishers, we place dental crowns almost every day. They are among the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures we do. Call our office to schedule your next cleaning and checkup today.
