If chips, cracks, or decay are keeping your teeth from looking their best, dental crowns might be the solution to perfecting your smile.
Dental crowns, both durable and attractive, are an effective way to restore your teeth in just one appointment. Drs. Cary and Jonathan Limberakis of Limberakis Family Dentistry in Abington, PA, offer same-day crowns that will have you leaving our office with a smile.
What is a crown?
A crown, which is crafted from tooth-colored ceramic, is a cap that covers the damaged area of your tooth.
What are the benefits of crowns?
Permanently secured to your tooth, a crown improves both the function and appearance of your tooth. Crowns from our Abington office are customized to fit your tooth seamlessly, so it matches the rest of your teeth in size and shape. Crowns can be used to conceal several cosmetic imperfections while allowing you to bite and chew like normal. Also, brushing and flossing may be easier and more comfortable with a crown in place.
Why might I need a crown?
Your dentist may recommend a crown if you have cracked, chipped, or worn down teeth, or your tooth is misshapen. If you have a cavity that can't be properly filled or a filling that protrudes, a crown can also be used to improve the appearance and function of your tooth.
How will my dentist apply a crown?
During your appointment at our Abington office, your dentist will first numb both the tooth and gum area to reduce any discomfort you may experience during the procedure. Using a dental drill, your dentist will gently scrape off some of the surface areas of the tooth to accommodate the crown.
Using a CEREC chairside technology unit, your dentist will take a digital scan to create your crown in-office. The crown, which will be crafted during your appointment, will then be adhered to your tooth securely and permanently. Your dentist will make alignment or size adjustments if needed to ensure you can bite comfortably.
