What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a cap that covers your entire tooth from the gum line up. When teeth become compromised for a variety of causes, such as weakening or damage, this dental prosthetic acts as a vital precaution, strengthening the teeth.

A dental crown’s main purpose is to offer another level of protection to a tooth that may no longer be structurally sound. The teeth crown protects the tooth from further damage and guards it from future fractures or breaking by covering the entire visible portion of the tooth. This strengthening is especially important when a tooth has suffered severe damage from disease, injury, or aging.

Crowns are usually made from ceramic, resin, or metal. Ceramic and resin crowns are popular, because they match your natural teeth. Metal crowns are more durable and can be a good choice for molars at the back of the mouth.

Dental crowns restore teeth that have suffered significant decay or damage and can save a natural tooth that can’t be restored with a smaller filling, preserving your smile.

What Types of Crowns are Available?

With CEREC technology, you can often get your dental crown in just one trip to the dental office. Depending on what you need, the team can guide you in selecting the ideal crown or restoration for your teeth. Our aesthetic bonded crowns are particularly effective at fixing broken teeth and promoting optimal oral or dental health.

What is the Process of Getting a Dental Crown in Atlanta?

When you come to Dental Implant and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta, our dentist and the team examines your mouth to determine if a crown is a good option for you. Everyone’s mouth is different, and every crown is custom-developed.

The process for CEREC crowns takes about two hours from start to finish. Dr. Langston takes digital impressions of your mouth, and a milling machine forms the crown from a ceramic block while he prepares your tooth for the crown.

He cleans your tooth, and he may use a bonding material to fill cavities or shape the tooth. He then places your new crown on the tooth and bonds it in place. Before you leave the dental office, our dentists and the team checks your bite to ensure the crown fits in your mouth comfortably.

Crowns made from ceramic and resin are popular because they look just like natural teeth. With proper dental care and regular dental cleanings, Atlanta dental crowns can last upwards of 10 years.
