Dental crowns—or caps—are placed over teeth to reinforce a decayed or damaged tooth. These caps mimic the natural shape of a tooth to complete your smile.
Typically, dental crowns may be used to:
A crown is usually recommended when a filling, inlay, or onlay is not sufficient to restore function. Depending on your needs, one crown material may be more appropriate than others.
We offer three types of dental crowns including:
Receiving a dental crown will typically require two appointments. Your first visit includes the consultation and preparation of the tooth. At this time, some of the natural tooth structure must be removed so the crown can fit comfortably amongst the surrounding teeth. We will then take impressions of your bite from which your custom crown will be hand-crafted at a trusted lab. Most patients will be provided with a temporary crown in the meantime.
If you are experiencing a sudden onset of pain or sensitivity, contact our office immediately. Dr. Mancino will examine your tooth to determine if a root canal is the best way to restore your oral health. He offers a complimentary consultation (a $250 value) for new patients.
