A dental crown restoration is a beneficial treatment option. It is designed to replace the tooth enamel of a tooth suffering from significant decay, damage, or cosmetic imperfection.
Large cavities can often spread to compromise a significant amount of tooth enamel. When these cavities become too large to be repaired by a filling, Drs. Frandsen and Dansie often recommend a dental crown in Grantsville, Utah.
This is a replica of the entire tooth enamel layer that is cast in a special material that will be immune to future tooth decay problems. To anchor it in your mouth, your dentists will use a drill to remove any existing tooth enamel. This will leave behind an abutment post of healthy dentin surrounding the softer internal pulp and root of the tooth.
An impression will be made of the area before a temporary crown will be secured over the abutment. This will protect the abutment while the dental lab technician works to complete your crown.
We will call you to schedule a second appointment when your new crown is ready. This appointment will be brief as the temporary crown will be removed and your new crown will be cemented into place.
If you have questions about dental crowns, you should call 435-884-3002 to talk to our team at Frandsen Dental.
