Wear A Crown In Guthrie

Dental crowns are among the restorative procedures we use most at Redbud Dental of Edmond. Crowns restore and protect a tooth that has been damaged, or had dental work. Each crown is custom-made to fit the tooth it is for.

This type of crown is sometimes called a “cap” because of the way they fit over the tooth. The purpose of the crown is to restore the tooth’s shape and size, and also its functionality. Once the crown is cemented into place it completely covers the visible portion of the tooth.

Some of the reasons we place a crown over a tooth:

  • It may have been badly chipped or broken
  • There may be a cavity too big to fill
  • A restoration after a root canal
  • Discoloration, or a similar cosmetic reason

When a crown is used as a restoration there is usually a temporary one before the final one. The temporary is used to protect the tooth while the permanent crown is made in a dental lab. A temporary crown is, of course, not as strong as a permanent crown, and patients need to be aware of that.

Once a dental crown is in place it should last for years to come, providing normal biting and chewing ability. Patients come to Redbud Dental of Edmond from Guthrie and Deer Creek for crowns and other restorative dentistry, and much more. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
