Dental crowns can cap a damaged or unattractive teeth to improve the function and appearance of your smile, and they may best the best possible option for your teeth if you have suffered tooth decay or an intense cosmetic flaw. We are pleased to provide an in-depth review of dental crowns in which we address some of the common questions patients ask.

What does a dental crown do?
Dental crowns are very versatile because they can be combined with any number of dental services, including protecting weak teeth, restoring damaged teeth, improving cosmetically flawed teeth, saving severely decayed teeth from extraction, supporting large dental fillings, stabilizing dental bridges, and covering dental implants.

How is a dental crown made?
Dental crowns are placed in two separate visits to Robert W Marder DMD, PLLC. First, determine if a dental crown is right for you by taking X-rays of your smile, and then we numb the area so that Dr. Robert Marder can remove some of the tooth to create space for the crown. After creating detailed impressions of the tooth, we send them to the dental lab so technicians and custom make your permanent dental crown (you will receive a temporary crown for now). Finally, we approve the fit and feel of the new crown and cement it onto the tooth.

How should I care for my dental crown?
Dental crowns don’t need special treatment, just the optimal level of care you should to providing all of your teeth. We recommend that you brush twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and flush remaining particles out of your mouth with mouthwash. You should also visit Dr. Robert Marder’s office every six months for preventive dental checkups.
