You may have noticed over time our teeth begin to weaken and become susceptible to problems such as decay, crack and, discoloration. If you feel your smile isn’t what it once was, crowns can help you recover your smile. If your dentist notices that a tooth is decayed or seems weakened/cracked a crown may be necessary to make sure that there are no additional problems with the tooth. In cases like this a filling or bonding will not be sufficient. At Glenn Smile Center in Aurora Colorado we can help you with your crown needs.
Modern crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a full gold crown. In order to maintain a natural look and feel we suggest porcelain, as it can be matched to the shade of your other teeth. This allows your teeth to look similar in color to each other.
The first step is to re-shape your tooth, don’t worry, you will be given a local anesthetic so you do not experience any discomfort. Once your tooth is re-shaped we will take a digital image of your tooth, a profile image. Then we design a crown fit for a tooth, your tooth. The best part is, when you look in the mirror you will see your same smile, smiling back at you. If you think a crown is your solution please call or visit our Aurora, Colorado Glenn Smile Center location.
