We Change Lives By Creating Beautiful Smiles

Choose Us For Natural Looking Dental Crowns

We are lucky enough to be living in a modern time in which can offer an array of tooth restorations. In the world of cosmetic dentistry, dental crowns are among one of the most popular options for tooth restorations on the market. Dental crowns can help restore the aesthetics of your smile to give you a smile you’ve been dreaming of, as well as optimal health for your smile.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom-made tooth restorations that are created to fit over teeth that have become severely damaged or have started to decay. Dental crowns provide a long-term solution to damaged teeth by stopping the spread of bacteria or decay, along with protecting the rest of your mouth, teeth, and gums from damage.

At Lansdowne Dental Care we offer gold and metal alloy options as well as porcelain dental crowns. Porcelain is a material that is popularly used in the dental field as it mimics the look and feel of a natural tooth. It is one of the strongest materials used that imitates the strength of a natural tooth as well. It can be molded, created, polished and colored to look exactly like a natural tooth. It even starts to discolor or stain (like a natural tooth) over-time, and can even chip and crack like a natural tooth. If the porcelain crown is taken good care of, it can last a lifetime, without the need for replacements. At Lansdowne Dental Care we utilize the best and most modern techniques for the dental care of our patients. We have taken the most damaged teeth and mouths and restored them to stunning new smiles. We are happy to take on your case and give you a smile you’ve been dreaming of, with the use of dental crowns, or any other restorative option.

Why You Should Choose a Natural Looking Dental Crown

  • To support a large filling
  • To attach a bridge
  • To protect a weak, fractured tooth
  • To restore a damaged tooth
  • To cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
  • To cover a dental implant
  • Much more!

Many patients opt for dental crowns because it is a pain-free option for restoring your damaged tooth. Our dentists at Lansdowne will do anything in their power to save a tooth from extraction. In some cases, if the pulp of the tooth becomes infected, a root canal procedure can be done to save the outer shell of the tooth without needing it to be extracted. Sometimes, as an added layer of protection, the dentist will place a dental crown on top of the tooth after the dental filing as a bonus layer of protection. Dental crowns, especially when made from porcelain, can be mistaken for natural teeth. Many patients love their dental crowns after getting them; some can’t even tell them apart from their natural teeth! The procedure is typically quick and pain-free which can make opting for dental crowns much easier.

3 Steps in The Crown Process

At Lansdowne Dental Care, Dr. Nguyen will take an impression of the affected tooth for an exact mold of your tooth. In some cases, the tooth will need to be contoured to ensure the perfect fit of the dental crown. The dentist will remove all enamel layers of your tooth. The reason we do this is to ensure your tooth does not look bulky when the crown fits on top. Although the crown will be made like an extremely thin porcelain shell, it will still look a bit bulky on your tooth if it is not contoured a bit to allow room for the crown.

Once the tooth is contoured, and the impression is taken, it will be sent to our dental lab where your custom-made dental crown will be created. We ensure a custom fit by getting a perfectly tailored dental crown made for your tooth. After all, every smile and every tooth is different! You will receive a temporary crown to wear before your permanent one is added. This temporary crown will usually be made out of a less durable material such as resin or ceramic.

Once your dental crown is made, which can usually take 1-2 weeks, you will be asked to come back in for your final appointment. The temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent one will be permanently bonded in its place. The dentist will be sure the fit is perfect, and your bite feels natural. Your comfort is our #1 goal!

Dental Crown Aftercare

With proper care and cleaning, your dental crown (s) can last a lifetime. As mentioned above, it’s important to remember while porcelain is an excellent and strong material, it is not indestructible. It’s important to take proper care of your dental crown just as you would your natural teeth. Be sure to brush twice a day and floss at least once a day. Visit our office every six months for a check-up and a cleaning appointment to ensure no bacteria or decay spreads. We are committed to ensuring your complete oral health, but everyone knows good oral health starts at home!

Be wary of the kinds of foods you eat. Try avoiding extremely hard food as they can chip your crown (or natural teeth). It can also be beneficial to avoid drinking staining liquids like coffee, tea, alcohol and avoid the use of any tobacco products- perhaps another reason to quit! We are happy to answer any other questions you may have in our office during a consultation.

Be sure to call our team at Lansdowne Dental Care if you are interested in learning more about dental crowns and the procedure involved. We are committed and ready to start this oral health journey with you toward health, happiness and a stunning new smile! We highly recommend dental crowns as they enhance the look, strength, and function of your smile. They can dramatically change and upgrade the look and functionality of your smile by providing you with healthy and strong teeth.
