Over time, teeth can become cracked, chipped, worn down, or decayed. Your restorative dentists in Boca Raton, Dr. Alman and Dr. Katz, can use crowns to restore teeth back to their natural appearance, as well as improve their structure, strength, and function while enhancing your smile.
There are several types of crowns on the market today: all-ceramic crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and gold crowns, which are used on the back teeth only. As your professional dentists in Boca Raton, Drs. Alman and Katz will sit down with you and discuss your options to help you to decide which is right for you.
A crown is designed to entirely cover the problem tooth, all the way down to the gumline. Your comfort is important to us so before we prepare the tooth for the crown, we make sure you are numb and comfortable. After the tooth is prepared, we’ll take impressions and send them to our trusted dental lab.
As soon as the crown is complete, we’ll notify you so that you can return to our office. We’ll check the fit and appearance of the crown and then bond it securely into place. Crowns are designed to be durable and long-lasting, and with proper care, your crown should last for many years.
Is a crown the right restoration for you? The best way to find out is by calling our Boca Raton dental office and scheduling a consultation with either Dr. Alman or Dr. Katz.
