If you have broken, or severely decayed teeth, a dental crown can help you restore the look, feel, and functionality of your natural tooth. At TotallySmiles, our dentists are prepared to help you address complex dental concerns within your smile such as extensive dental damages. While some tooth chips and cracks can be concealed using cosmetic dentistry services, others will cause structural damage to your teeth and will affect the bite and the way you eat and speak.
It is best to have all damaged dentition and trauma assessed by a professional dentist as soon as possible to determine the best course of treatment. Otherwise, you risk the damages only being worse and requiring more invasive treatment. Learn more about restorative dentistry below.
Dental Crowns in Gaithersburg, MD
Dr. Steven Anolik and Dr. Corey Anolik are experienced restorative dentists in Gaithersburg, MD. They are happy to provide dental crowns to patients in need of tooth restoration. Patients love dental crowns because it helps them avoid the need for a total tooth extraction following severe dental damages. Because our office has invested in the best modern dental technologies, we can have you in and out of our office with a restored dental crown within one appointment.
What To Expect
Your dental crown will require extensive enamel removal; however, our doctors will ensure the affected area is numbed to avoid patient discomfort. If the procedure is causing you to have dental anxiety, talk to your dentist about sedation dentistry options. Sedation dentistry is an excellent way for you to sit back and relax while we provide you with your necessary dental care.
After the affected area is numbed, your dentist will shape down your affected tooth to its foundational core. The foundational core will support the dental crown once it is set in place. We will take detailed digital dental impressions captured by a computer to give us the data we need to design your new restoration. Our software coupled with our training creates a dental crown milled from the finest porcelain.
If we are for any reason unable to provide a same-day dental crown, a temporary crown will be placed over your tooth to protect it from increased sensitivity. Once your porcelain crown is complete, we will secure it to your tooth using dental cement. The final product will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
