What is the procedure and purpose of a dental crown?

Dental crowns in Winston Salem, NC, are quality tooth covers customized to look like your untreated teeth. They offer a variety of practical and necessary purposes across dentistry.

Dental Crown Procedure

The procedure varies depending on the reason for your crowning. In most cases, capping a tooth with a dental crown involves preparing it by removing old filling material and jagged bits of enamel.

Once the tooth is smooth, your dentist cements the crown and provides final adjustments. It is a non-invasive and painless procedure.

Dental Crown Purpose

A dental crown covers a prepared tooth to the gumline, protecting and restoring it. It also conceals cosmetic issues and tops a dental implant post after healing. Additionally, two dental crowns may anchor a dental bridge to healthy teeth.

You care for your crown by adopting an excellent oral care routine at home and visiting your dentist every six months for checkups and teeth cleanings.
