We offer crowns and bridges in Naugatuck, Connecticut, that have the ability of restoring a tooth’s shape, size, and strength all while improving the appearance of your smile.
Dr. Henry Danziger recommends crowns for many reasons. Those reasons include:
- Providing protection of a weak tooth
- Restoring a broken tooth
- Covering a tooth that is extremely worn down
- Holding a dental bridge into place
- Covering a dental implant
- Making a cosmetic modification
- Covering misshaped teeth
- Covering discolored teeth
- Supporting a tooth that has a large filling
This process could take about two visits to finish. The first visit involves your dentist taking x-rays and checking the tooth roots and surrounding bone. If there is a large amount of decay present, a root canal treatment might be necessary. This visit will also include your dentist filing down the tooth to allow room for a crown to be placed over it. After the tooth is prepared, they will take impressions of your tooth and send them to a lab to be custom-made for you. The second visit will involve your dentist checking the fit and color of your new permanent crown. If it is to your liking, the crown with be permanently cemented into place.
