Dental crowns are caps that completely cover or encircle a damaged tooth or dental implant. These caps can restore a tooth's shape, size, and look. They can also strengthen a weakened tooth, improve its appearance, or restore a discolored or broken tooth.
At Monaco Dentistry, we offer a unique experience to people who require dental crowns in Riverview and Apollo Beach. Please get in touch with us to book an appointment today.
A dental crown may be necessary if you have severe tooth decay that may damage your teeth to the point where a dental filling cannot fix it. You may also need a dental crown if you have a cracked or broken tooth, a large cavity, or a worn-down tooth that requires restoration. Crowns can also be used to cover a dental implant, shield a misshapen tooth, or support a dental bridge.
Once our dentists in Riverview and Apollo Beach have determined the best type of crown for you, they will book two appointments for you. At your initial consultation, one of our dentists will discuss your treatment plan and address any concerns you may have about the procedure.
The dentist will examine the affected tooth and prepare it for a crown. This process involves removing the decay, shaping the tooth, and taking impressions of the tooth.
The impressions and molds are sent to a dental lab where your crown is fabricated. It will take a few weeks for your new crown to be fabricated. When the crown is ready, your dentist will check the fit and make the necessary adjustments.
Once the dentist confirms the fit of your crown, they permanently attach the crown over your tooth and cement it in place to ensure it fits perfectly.
Your dentist may schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor the fit and ensure the crown works appropriately.
