A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that is placed over the visible portion of tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance. Drs. Frandsen and Dansie may recommend a dental crown in Grantsville, Utah, in order to:
– Hold a weak tooth together
– Restore a broken tooth
– Support a dental bridge
– Restore a tooth that has extensive decay
– Mend or enhance the appearance of a tooth
Before placing a dental crown, our dentists will inspect the tooth and make sure that it can support a dental crown. The tooth is then shaped to allow space for the crown. If a tooth is badly damaged or broken, our dentists may build it up to make it large enough to support the crown. Then, impressions are taken of the tooth and of the surrounding teeth so that your crown can be custom made. Once your dental crown is ready, our dentist will check the fit and color and make any necessary tweaks. Then the crown is properly positioned and cemented in place.
We invite you to contact Frandsen Dental for more information about dental crowns and how they can help your smile and to schedule an appointment. We look forward to helping you restore the health and appearance of your smile!
