A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance. A dental crown in Raleigh, North Carolina, may be recommended by Dr. Rumley, Dr. Prajapati, and Dr. Maness to:
– Support a weak tooth
– Restore a broken tooth
– Support a dental bridge
– Restore a tooth that has deep decay
– Restore a tooth that has had root canal treatment
– Improve a tooth’s aesthetics
Before placing a crown, our dentists will examine the tooth and make sure that it can support one. The tooth is then shaped to allow room for the crown. If a tooth is badly damaged or broken, our dentists may build it up to make it large enough to support the crown. Impressions are then taken of the tooth and of the surrounding teeth so that your crown can be custom made. Our dentists will check the fit and color of the completed crown and make any needed adjustments. Then the crown is properly positioned and placed.
