Dental Crowns – Jupiter, FL

A Time-Tested Solution for Damaged Teeth

When a tooth is broken, it lacks any means to fix itself, but luckily that’s where dental crowns come in. Dentists have been using these restorations to repair damaged and decayed teeth for quite a long time, and nowadays the treatment is more reliable than ever. The crowns that Dr. Shane Vaughn and Dr. Amiee Vaughn offer are designed to be natural-looking, and they’re also durable enough to last for many years. Please call us if you think your smile might benefit from a dental crown.

What is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are also referred to as caps for your teeth. The size, shape, and fit of each crown are carefully customized according to the tooth being repaired. When the crown is used to cover the tooth, it will help the remaining dental structure function normally again while also preventing the damage from growing any worse. The crowns at our office are made out of tooth-colored materials that can be shaded to match the appearance of your smile.

You might need to get a dental crown if:

  • You have a tooth that was severely damaged in an accident.
  • Your tooth has been badly weakened and is in danger of breaking.
  • Your tooth is suffering from extensive decay.
  • Your tooth is noticeably misshapen or discolored.

Dental crowns can also play a role in replacing missing teeth. Two crowns can hold a dental bridge in place, and a single crown can be anchored to a dental implant post.

The Dental Crown Process 

The traditional method of getting a dental crown requires at least two appointments. At the first visit, your tooth is prepared before the necessary impressions are captured. Said impressions are used by experts at a separate dental laboratory to create the crown. Once the restoration is finished, you can schedule a second appointment to have it placed on your tooth.

However, our office is proud to offer CEREC crowns, which only require one appointment. After the necessary preparations have been made, your crown will be designed via special software before being created by our in-office milling machine. Many patients prefer CEREC crowns since they save a lot of time and allow them to avoid the inconvenience of a temporary restoration.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown

Getting a dental crown means that you will be able to enjoy the following benefits:

  • The natural-looking restoration will improve the appearance of the damaged tooth so that you can show off your smile without hesitation.
  • The tooth will be protected against further harm and thus will be less likely to need additional dental work later.
  • You can expect many years of use out of a well-maintained dental crown. In fact, it’s not unusual for a crown to last 10 to 15 years.
