When a tooth is damaged, misshapen, or missing altogether, serious and painful oral health complications can result. Plus, such teeth are often lacking in aesthetic appeal. A high-quality dental crown can often address such issues by protecting vulnerable teeth, helping to replace missing teeth, and giving you the freedom to smile with increased confidence. At our dental practice in Cambridge, we offer the latest methods and state-of-the-art techniques for designing and placing these invaluable dental restorations.
Both the health and appearance of your teeth can be negatively affected by cavities or other types of dental damage. You may experience difficulty with eating and perhaps even lose some confidence in your smile. These damaged teeth are commonly protected or improved via the use of crowns in our dental center in Cambridge. In this procedure, the damaged tooth is completely encircled or capped by a custom-made dental crown. Dental crowns can also work along with dental implants to replace missing teeth altogether.
There are a variety of materials available for the construction of a dental crown. Your dentist in Cambridge often prefers to use porcelain crowns in order to achieve the most natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance with the greatest durability. Some people choose to have their dental crown fabricated with gold. In either case, your dentist will make an impression of the prepared tooth and create a crown using intense heat to either cast metal or fire porcelain. On a subsequent visit to our dental clinic in Cambridge, your dental restoration will be completed when your dentist cements in place the crown.
