A dental crown is one way to repair your damaged tooth while also improving its overall appearance. It covers the top of your tooth, similar to how a cap works on a bottle, which is likely why some people refer to dental crowns as “caps”. Dental crowns are a common procedure that can fix many dental issues.
More specifically, you may use a dental crown to…
- Cover a dental implant
- Protect a tooth that’s been repaired with a root canal
- Shield a worn-down, cracked or otherwise weakened tooth
- Shelter large cavities that are too big for a dental filling
- Replace a missing tooth
- Conceal blemished and misshapen teeth
If any of the above situations apply to you, come visit our South Tampa dental office for more information.
We understand the emotion involved in mouth restoration, thus, we make every effort to put you at ease. During your appointment at our South Tampa dental office, you’ll meet with either Dr. Plumley or Dr. Sanchez to discuss what you hope to achieve with a dental crown. The goal is to formulate a dental crown treatment plan, tailored to fit your specific needs.
Doctors Plumley or Sanchez will take you through the differences between the three types of dental crownsavailable (porcelain, gold and porcelain fused-to-metal) as well as the pros and cons of each. You’ll be provided with a recommendation based on the location of the dental cap and the type of problem it’s meant to resolve.
Most dental crowns require two visits, which is a major inconvenience for most patients. That’s why our South Tampa dental office now offers same-day crowns!Digital imaging allows us to create your crown while you wait, eliminating the need for a temporary crown and an additional appointment.
No matter what dental issue you are seeking to resolve, our high-quality dental crowns will provide you with a more beautiful smile. One that should last a lifetime, as long as you care for it properly.
