There are several types of dental restorations, including dental crowns. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. At Cedar Pointe Family Dentistry, we provide tooth-colored, aesthetic dental crowns. Dr. Denver Palmer may suggest a dental crown in Farmington, New Mexico, to:
– Hold a weak tooth together
– Restore a broken tooth
– Restore a tooth that has extensive decay
– Improve the appearance of a tooth
Before placing a dental crown, our dentist will first inspect the tooth and take X-rays of the tooth’s root and the nearby bone. Your tooth will then be numbed with a local anesthetic so that it can be prepared for the crown. An impression of the tooth is then made so that your crown can be custom made for your individual smile. A shade will also be selected that closely matches that of your natural teeth.
Once your dental crown is finished, our dentist will check the fit and color. If everything is as it should be, the new crown is permanently cemented into place.
For more information about dental crowns and to set up your next visit with our dentist, we invite you to contact our dental office. We are excited to serve you and your smile!
