Regaining Your Smile With a Dental Crown
Dr. Torghele offers several excellent options for restoring a damaged or injured tooth. Depending on your situation, he will use the best one available and provide a solution that is both long lasting and rehabilitative. In some cases, this might require the use of a dental crown. These are typically recommended when:
- Your tooth has been worn from friction or grinding
- A tooth is compromised, cracked, or even broken
- Tooth decay has injured the tooth severely
- The tooth has had a root canal performed
Does Your Type of Crown Matter?
Based on your evaluation and unique circumstance, you may be offered a few options with this type of treatment. Typically, at Torghele Dentistry, we will use a porcelain crown – since it blends very naturally with your existing teeth. We can also use gold in some situations, depending on where the tooth is located in your mouth. Another potential option is Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM), which is a hybrid crown made with a metal base and porcelain outer shell.
Your Dental Appointment
What should you expect with this type of restoration? For a crown, you can anticipate at least a couple office appointments. Dental impressions will be used to create your custom fit crown and color matching will ensure a seamless blend with your existing teeth. If you have anxiety regarding the procedure, ask about our amenities to help you feel comfortable and relaxed – complimentary nitrous oxide is always available!
