They not only protect your tooth from further damage but also enhance its size and shape, making your smile fuller and more confident.
Dental crowns are a type of tooth restoration that's tailor-made to fit over your damaged or compromised tooth. Think of them as a protective cap that shelters the tooth from further damage while also improving its form and function. This treatment is especially beneficial if you've fractured a tooth, undergone a root canal, or have a large cavity. Here at Riverwalk Dental Group in Jupiter, FL, our dedicated team ensures that your dental crowns last for many years.
There could be a multitude of reasons why you might need a dental crown. Some common situations include a cracked, fractured, or broken tooth. If you've recently undergone a root canal treatment, your tooth may be more susceptible to breaking, thereby making a crown a wise preventive measure. Dental crowns are also often recommended when a tooth has a large filling or extensive decay. Trust us when we say, delaying a crown could exacerbate your dental issues.
Our seasoned dentist, Dr. Payal P. Chokshi, DMD, will conduct a thorough examination to determine if a dental crown is necessary for you. Whether you're a resident of Jupiter, Tequesta, Juno Beach, Jupiter Farms, Abacoa, or Palm Beach Gardens, you can have your dental crown needs met conveniently at our clinic. Crowns are versatile and can be used for almost any tooth that needs restoration, so don't put off this critical dental procedure.
Our patient-centric approach ensures a comfortable experience throughout your procedure. Dr. Payal P. Chokshi, DMD, will administer a local anesthetic to numb the affected area. The tooth is then skillfully filed down to accommodate the crown. Using state-of-the-art technology, we take precise impressions that serve as the blueprint for your custom-made crown. A follow-up visit will be scheduled to place the final crown, bringing you a step closer to a better, brighter smile. So, how long does it take to feel better after a dental crown procedure? Most patients report immediate relief and a very short adjustment period.
While dental crowns are designed to be long-lasting, they are not entirely permanent. With proper care, a crown can last many years, and we'll guide you on how to extend the lifespan of your crown. This brings us to another important question: How do I care for my dental crown? The key is regular dental hygiene including brushing, flossing, and routine check-ups at Riverwalk Dental Group.
