Dental Crowns Colorado Springs
Do you have a tooth that has suffered from damage, trauma, or an injury that has resulted in a chip or crack?
If so, you should consider a dental crown to protect the tooth. Dental crowns are also used for other purposes such as:
- Covering and protecting a dental implant
- Supporting a tooth that is broken (i.e. not a whole tooth anymore)
- Keeping a dental bridge in place
- Covering misshapen or discolored teeth
- Protecting a weakened or cracked tooth from more damage
The dental crowns placed on your teeth will be made up of a porcelain material that looks and feels natural. Dr. Hall prefers to use porcelain dental crowns
Because they are metal free, durable, and they blend right into your smile. Though dental crowns are generally placed for practical reasons, they also have cosmetic benefits to them. They can be used and placed in order to make a tooth look entirely normal again. A broken tooth will look entirely new!
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a cap that is shaped to fit over a tooth, restoring the original size and shape. The crown covers the tooth to the gum line and is often used for teeth that are cracked or chipped and cannot be adequately restored by other techniques like dental bonding. A dental crown may also be placed to reshape a misshapen tooth.
How are tooth crowns placed?
In order to have a tooth crown placed, you will only need to schedule a single appointment with Dr. Hall. Through the use of CEREC technology, Dr. Hall is able to create a beautiful ceramic dental crown in as little as 60 minutes. This eliminates the need for multiple visits or a temporary crown.
Is a crown right for me?
Without having examined your mouth and oral health, there are no set answers as to whether or not a tooth crown is the most suitable procedure for you. Dr. Hall will take the time to examine the teeth surrounding the tooth requiring a tooth crown as well as other factors. Keep in mind that tooth crowns are not always the best solution so a complimentary consult regarding teeth crowns in Colorado is a must.
How long do dental crowns last?
When taken care of properly, dental crowns can last for up to 20 years. The important part is taking proper care of them and scheduling routine visits with Dr. Hall to ensure the crown is still secure and in its original position. The first five years of having a crown usually requires little to no major treatment or fixes to the crown. To keep your crown in ideal health, be sure to brush and floss as required.
Single visit dental crowns with CEREC
Traditional dental crown placement usually involves a lot of time, extra appointments, and the need to wait for an outside laboratory to create the crown. However, Dr. Hall is a dentist of efficiency and prefers to use modern technology to speed up the process.
To make the process of placing dental crowns much easier and much more exact, Dr. Hall uses the CEREC which means that you’ll only have to come to our dental office one time to get a dental crown. In fact, it may only take an hour of your time! With CEREC there is no need to make an impression of your teeth with messy impression material or to do business with an outside dental laboratory, as the creation of dental crowns is now a completely in-office procedure. CEREC dental crowns are extremely reliable and fast.
