Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges
Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration used to strengthen and protect damaged teeth. The dental crown is a tooth reinforcement that helps weakened teeth regain strength and functionality. A crown fits over natural enamel, keeping the tooth safe from further decay or damage.
Crowns can be used on teeth that have lost part of their structure due to tooth decay or on enamel that has broken down, cracked or fractured. This can be due to injury or an old filling removal. They can also be used as false teeth during a dental implant, a procedure performed to replace missing teeth. In some cases, dental crowns are used for cosmetic purposes only, bonded to enamel to mask discoloration or correct the shape of the tooth.

What to expect during a dental crowns fitting
Brushing and flossing may help you stave off gum disease but there are also other factors and behaviors that can raise your risk of getting gum disease.
While smoking is associated with lung complications more than anything else, it’s obviously not good for your oral health either. Let’s go over some stats that illustrate just how bad smoking can be for your lungs:
- First, Dr. Deldar will remove any decay. He will reduce the enamel in preparation for a crown and provide a fit for a temporary restoration.
- During your second visit, your temporary crown will be replaced with the permanent restoration. The fit is perfected and the crown is cemented to your natural tooth for a comfortable and secure setting.
- Now, your newly restored tooth is highly resistant to breakage or fracture. You are able to eat whatever you want and use normal biting pressure. Your dental crown can last 20 years or more if it is well cared for.
If you want to protect your natural teeth and prevent tooth loss, dental crowns and other custom restorations can help you keep your smile strong.
