WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS?
Dental crowns are used to cover a tooth and improve its appearance while restoring its functionality and strength. Crowns, sometimes called dental caps, fit over the tooth and cover it completely.
HOW ARE DENTAL CROWNS APPLIED?
Dr. Zarghouni removes some of the enamel on your tooth to make room for the crown. Then, she makes a mold of your tooth and applies a temporary crown. Your new crown is created using the mold.
Once the new crown is in, you’ll return to Prestigious Smiles Family Dentistry where Dr. Zarghouni removes the temporary crown and applies the new one. If everything fits appropriately, she cements the crown into place. If it doesn’t fit, she’ll send it back to be adjusted.
