If your tooth is damaged by cavities, cracking or fractures, our skilled dentist may recommend an all-ceramic dental crown to restore its strength, health and appearance. A dental crown, or cap, is a type of restorative treatment used when a tooth has sustained significant damage or decay. Crowns are custom-designed to fit your mouth and smile perfectly to give you a long-lasting solution for your smile.
There are a variety of restorative and aesthetic purposes for which our dentist may recommend a crown, including:
- Completing a root canal treatment
- Anchoring a dental bridge
- Completing a dental implant treatment
- Improving the appearance of a tooth
- Strengthening tooth that are fractured or weak
- Supporting a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
- Protecting a previously damaged tooth
While crowns may be made from a variety of materials, we have chosen to use only ceramic crowns at our office. Ceramic mimics the natural appearance and durability of tooth enamel, ensuring that your restoration will look, feel and function like your original tooth.
Your dental crown will take two appointments to complete. The first appointment will involve preparing the tooth and taking impressions, and the crown will be fitted and bonded into place when you return for the second appointment.
Give us a call at 860-272-4312 if you have any questions about ceramic dental crowns in New Milford, Connecticut, and schedule your consultation with Dr. Glenn M. Wilson.
