Dealing with a cracked or damaged tooth isn’t just a cosmetic problem. It can lead to pain, discomfort, and more oral health issues in the future. With dental crown restorations, Dr. Barker can easily address this annoyance so you can go back to proudly flashing that beautiful smile.
Dental crowns are durable, tooth-colored caps that fit right over your natural teeth or dental implants. They are commonly used to save teeth that would otherwise probably need to be extracted. If you have a root canal treatment, we’ll also use crowns to prevent further damage.
Before placement, we will use a digital dental impression to create a crown that matches your original tooth's size, shape, and color. We want it to fit perfectly in your mouth, so you won’t feel any discomfort.
If the dental crown is going to be placed over a natural tooth, the dentist will shape the tooth into a base. That natural base will be bonded to the crown, leaving you with a strong, protective barrier over the root. If you’re getting a dental implant, we will connect the crown to it with an abutment.
Do you have a damaged tooth? A dental crown or a variety of other restoration options can make your smile whole again. Contact the friendly team at Barker Dentistry & Implant Center today to schedule an appointment.
