Dental Crowns Gainesville, FL by Smart Smile Dentistry Dentists

Dental crowns overview.

Restorative dentistry in Gainesville offering dental crowns. For mild-to-moderate decay, composite fillings are usually adequate to restore a tooth to good functionality, but larger areas of decay require a different approach. In such cases, your Gainesville, Florida dentist at Smart Smile Dentistry will recommend a crown, which is a hard restoration that fully covers the portion of the tooth above the gumline. In addition to treating large cavities, dental crowns are used to restore teeth that are broken or worn, hold together teeth that are weakened by large fillings or deep fractures and secure dental bridges in place.

What type of dental crown is best for me?

Crowns are fabricated from various materials depending on which tooth is being treated as well as your cosmetic and budgetary needs. For front teeth, we place white, all-ceramic crowns, which are more expensive than those made from other materials but are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. For molars, we also offer crowns made from metal alloys or a combination of porcelain and metal to withstand the strong forces of chewing that these teeth must bear.

What is the process of dental crown placement procedure?

Crown placement is typically performed under local anesthesia, and we must first prepare the tooth by shaping it with special dental tools and materials. Once we have achieved the ideal shape to hold the crown in place, we take impressions of the teeth and send them to a dental laboratory along with color specifications. While you are waiting for the lab to create your custom crown, you’ll wear a temporary crown made of acrylic or resin. When your permanent crown is ready, you’ll return to our Gainesville, FL dental office so that we can cement it in place, ensuring a proper fit and bite.
