Dental crowns are a vital part of dentistry, giving you a healthy, attractive tooth after decay, trauma, or other reason. At Anderson Family Dental in Winter Park, FL, we can even make your crown in minutes, not weeks.
If you have a weak, flawed, or unsightly tooth, a dental crown can support or conceal these issues to give you a fantastic and fully functional smile. Dental crowns also work beautifully with dental bridges to restore your smile when teeth are missing.
At Anderson Family Dental, it is our goal to give you a smile that you’re proud to show the world—a smile that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional.
No More Waiting for Crowns!
SAME-DAY DENTAL CROWNS
We offer CEREC technology in our Winter Park dental office. This means same-day dental crowns for our patients!
ONE VISIT ONLY
Typically, patients wait a week or two to receive their crown from an off-site dental lab after goopy impressions are taken in the dental office. At Anderson Family Dental, we rely on digital impressions. And we create your crown right here in our own onsite lab while you wait.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a covering that fits over a tooth damaged by decay, trauma, or wear. Drs. Bryant and Kathleen Anderson may recommend crowns to protect a weak tooth that is severely cracked or to cover a tooth that has received a root canal treatment as well.
At our dental office in Winter Park we create crowns using digital impressions in our own on-site lab. This allows us to create your tooth crown while you wait.
The Versatility of Dental Crowns
Our dentists are able to use dental crowns in many capacities and in order to perform a variety of functions to help patients achieve restorative or cosmetic goals.
In general dentistry, a crown may be used to cap a weak or vulnerable tooth following trauma or root infection. The crown creates a buffer between your tooth and your bite, which prevents fractures.
For cosmetic purposes, a dental crown can conceal a discolored, flawed, or unsightly tooth. Similar to veneers, a crown can even close small gaps between teeth.
In implant dentistry, a dental crown is the visible portion of the implant and caps your post in order to mimic the appearance and function of the missing tooth.
Dental crowns also work beautifully with a dental bridge, anchoring it in place to complete your smile and restore bite function.
How Do I Care For Dental Crowns?
A dental crown does not require special maintenance. It is important to continue good dental hygiene practices. After a crown is placed, patients should follow any aftercare given by the dentist and then continue to brush and floss as before, treating the crown just like a real tooth.
With any restorations, however, it’s crucial to visit your dentist regularly for dental exams and teeth cleanings. Caring for your crown is important to make it last as long as possible.
