We offer dental crowns in Gold Hill, Oregon, that are meant to restore a tooth’s size, strength, shape, and also improve its appearance.
Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a tooth to:
• Protect a weak tooth
• Cover and support a tooth with a large filling
• Restore a broken tooth
• Restore a worn down tooth
• Hold a dental bridge in place
• Cover a dental implant
• Cover misshaped teeth
• Cover a severely discolored tooth
• Make a cosmetic modification
This process usually requires about two visits to Tom Brooks DMD. It will begin by Dr. Tom Brooks examining and preparing the tooth by taking x-rays and performing a root canal if it is necessary. Your dentist will then numb the area of the tooth with a local anesthetic and begin to file down the tooth to make room for the crown. After he makes room for the crown, he will make impressions of the tooth and send them to a lab. They will create a custom-made crown for you. Your second visit will involve your dentist checking the size and fit of the crown on your teeth. If it fits to your liking, it is cemented permanently into place.
