One of the most common dental restorations used today, a dental crown can serve many purposes in keeping your natural smile healthy and functional. Atlanta dentist Dr. Maria Benefield places high quality, ceramic dental crowns in her Sandy Springs office for patients with both cosmetic and restorative needs:
- Damaged tooth
- Discolored tooth
- Misshapen tooth
- Support a partial denture or dental bridge
- After a root canal to strengthen the tooth
Dental Crowns: What To Expect
The dental crown procedure is a multi step process performed in the comfort of our Sandy Springs dentist office. Your procedure will begin with impressions of the area to be treated, which Dr. Benefield will use to order your custom fit and color matched crown.
To prepare the tooth for the dental crown, Dr. Benefield will remove a small amount of tooth structure for attaching the crown and addressing any dental or cosmetic concerns being treated. A temporary crown may be placed while your new one is being fabricated in a dental lab.
At the next appointment, Dr. Benefield will permanently place your new dental restoration, making any necessary adjustments to the tooth surface for a secure, natural looking fit and comfortable result.
During routine visits, Dr. Benefield and her staff will monitor your dental restorations, looking for any signs of wear or damage that should be addressed. With proper dental care and oral hygiene, a dental crown will last for many years.
