Restore the Appearance and Strength of Your Teeth with Dental Crowns
What do you know about dental crowns? If you have a mental picture of bulky, fake-looking crowns of yesteryear, think again. Today’s dental crowns are made of lifelike materials — so natural you can’t distinguish them from your actual teeth. At Simply Smiles, we offer natural-looking crowns to change the look and resilience of your teeth.
The Dental Crowns Procedure
Also known as tooth caps, dental crowns are natural-looking appliances installed on your teeth to boost your smile aesthetics and functionality of your teeth. Getting crowns starts with a consultation with Drs. Kira Gekht and Jade Rivera. After they establish you are a perfect candidate for crowns, we need to prep your teeth. Here, we first administer anesthesia to ensure that the process is comfortable.
Next, we etch out a small amount of your enamel to create space for your crowns. We take bite impressions after reshaping your teeth and send the images to a dental lab to create your crowns. Before your permanent crowns are ready, your dentist will install temporary crowns to protect your teeth.
Once your new crowns are created, you will book another appointment with our office for installation. Dr. Gekht or Dr. Rivera will check how comfortable you are with your crowns before bonding them firmly on your teeth.
Crowns are tiny appliances, but they deliver stunning results for your smile.
