Do you have a damaged, chipped or broken tooth? A custom dental crown can treat a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dental concerns. Restore the structural integrity of your tooth today.
Dr. Greg Reece provides dental crowns in Charlotte NC. Dental crowns act as caps that cover and protect teeth. They are used to address damaged, misshapen, or discolored teeth, as well as hold dental bridges in place. Tooth crowns are also used to cover dental implants. Made of sturdy porcelain ceramic material, dental crowns strengthen weak teeth and blend in with natural teeth. Dental crowns are custom-fit to each patient. We believe that no two patients have the same smile, so we provide personalized dental treatment plans that last a lifetime.
Dental Crowns Treatment
Dr. Greg Reece will assess your tooth health to ensure that a dental crown is the best right for your specific needs. It will take up to two visits to fit and place your dental crown. The tooth must be cleaned, shaped, and fitted with a temporary crown before the custom dental crown is fabricated. You should still maintain your normal dental routine by brushing and flossing your teeth after receiving your dental crown. Dental crowns may protect teeth, but they can’t prevent tooth decay.
Dental Crown FAQs
Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about dental crowns below:
How long do dental crowns last?
With proper dental care, dental crowns can last up to 30 years. Follow all instructions given to you by your dentist. Keeping a good routine oral hygiene schedule will guarantee long-lasting crowns.
Is it painful to receive dental crowns?
No. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area that is receiving the dental crown, so the procedure shouldn’t be painful. You may feel some soreness after the procedure, but this should pass quickly.
Can dental crowns fall out?
Dental crowns can come loose as a result of tooth damage or decay. Dr. Reece will monitor the condition of your dental crown during routine dental care visits. If you notice any changes in the fit or comfort of your crown or the crown falls out, contact our Charlotte NC dentist office right away. We will advise you on how to address the problem, or to schedule an appointment to be seen.
Am I a candidate for dental crowns?
Broken teeth that still have the tooth root intact can receive dental crowns. Patients with missing teeth may also receive dental implants, dentures, or dental bridges which can be capped off with dental crowns. Treatment may be needed for patients with tooth decay, but they can receive dental crowns after the infection is removed. Never assume that you need a specific treatment without consulting with your dentist first. Sometimes we can offer alternative treatments to a dental crown that can better address your issue.
