At Diamond Dental, we provide dental crowns, an extremely effective dental restoration procedure we use to repair a tooth or teeth and help improve its shape. Crowns are most often used for teeth that have been broken or damaged through dental injury, decay or infection. Our doctors are experts at dental crown procedures and ensure they look and match your natural teeth, while addressing oral health issues. Dental crowns help patients regain the full function of their teeth. Dental crowns are also almost always required for teeth that have undergone root canal treatment.
Crowns are needed when there is insufficient tooth structure to hold a filling. Unlike fillings which the material is directly used to build up the teeth, the crown is fabricated in the lab using an impression of your tooth. The crown is designed and sculpted for maximum function and esthetics. We serve the Massachusetts community of Malden and surrounding communities.
Durable & Natural-Looking Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are caps that surround the affected teeth to restore teeth that have been damaged. Dental crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes to enhance and improve the appearance of teeth and your smile. There are different types of dental crowns: all-metal, ceramic-on-metal and all-ceramic. The type of crown that will be used is determined by the location of the tooth. For front teeth, all-ceramic crowns are used because ceramic is the most natural-looking of the materials. Porcelain-on-metal crowns are used for front and back teeth since they are durable, as well as natural looking. At Diamond Dental, we are offer porcelain fused to metal crowns that have both great aesthetic looks and durability.
Dental Crown Procedure
An initial impression is taken of the affected teeth for shape and matching teeth color. a crown is created based on the impression. Before placing the dental crown around a tooth, we prepare the tooth by removing some enamel or the damaged portion of the tooth to create enough room for the new dental crown without pushing the surrounding teeth. The tooth is then cleaned and the crown is placed and bonded securely around the existing tooth that has been clinically shaped.
Restoring Teeth and Smile with Dental Crowns
Dental crowns protects the teeth and restore full functionality of the teeth, allowing you to speak and eat normally and without discomfort. Dental crowns are ideal for people with damaged or broken teeth, as well as those with severe teeth sensitivity.
