A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth.
Dental crowns preserve the usefulness of damaged teeth. A dental crown may be used to protect a cracked tooth, restore a tooth with excessive decay or replace a pre-existing crown.
The purpose of a dental crown is to encase a needy tooth with a custom-designed material.
Dental Crowns Consultation
If tooth decay or damage is so extensive that veneers or other conservative treatments aren’t viable treatment options Dr. Friscia will consult with you about dental crowns.
Part of your dental crown consultation may involve taking impressions of your existing tooth (or teeth) in order to create the shape and size of your crown restorations.
Dr. Friscia will describe the tooth preparation process, as well as your options with regard to local anesthesia and sedation dentistry, if necessary.
