Why Do You Need Crowns & Caps?

If you have a tooth that is badly damaged by tooth decay, then it might be necessary to place crowns on the tooth. This might also be the case if the doctor has placed a bridge to cover gaps left by one or several teeth. In most of these cases, your dentist will advise you on whether you need a crown, based on his or her assessment of the damage on your tooth.

What Does Guerrino Dentistry Offer For Crowns & Caps?

Because crowns are typically placed on teeth that have significant damage, it is possible that you may require a root canal procedure or an endodontic before crown placement. If there is significant damage to the tooth, your dentist might require constructing a foundation for the crown. An impression of the tooth is then made which will guide the shape of the crown. There are many ways of doing this and the latest trend is to use digital impressions.

Once your permanent crown is made, it will then be placed on the tooth and cemented in place. If you had a root canal procedure done prior to the placement of the crown, then this will be a painless procedure. If not, there might be some temporary discomfort, but this is often bearable. At Guerrino Dentistry, we will do our best to make the process as comfortable as possible for you.
