If you have experienced moderate to severe tooth decay or damage, our dentist may suggest you consider a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed directly over the tooth, completely encasing the tooth up the gum line. Dr. A. Gregory Sohrweide uses dental crowns in Baldwinsville, New York, to restore the size, shape, function, and appearance of a tooth that might have otherwise needed to be removed. We may also suggest a dental crown to:
- Support a large filling or root canal treatment
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Complete a dental implant
It only takes two visits to our dental office to design, create, and place your dental crown. During your first appointment, we will gather all the information necessary to create a dental crown that will look beautiful and fit properly. This includes molds and impressions of your tooth after it has been reshaped to accommodate the thickness of the crown. A dental laboratory will create your crown and then send it back to our office, where it will be permanently cemented in place. Dental crowns are a long-lasting solution to decay. If you would like more information about how dental crowns work, we encourage you to reach out to our dental practice and speak with someone at our office. All of our team members are enthusiastic about helping our patients restore their smile.
