How do dental crowns work?

Dental crowns are one of the most versatile restorations; they are used widely across general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. Your dentist in Merrillville, IN provides quality dental crowns that you can depend on as well. And we can create these crowns during a single office visit.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a sturdy tooth cover that goes on over an existing tooth. It is colored and shaped to blend in with your natural teeth.

In many cases, it can take weeks to get your dental crown, but we offer same-day dental crowns in Merrillville, IN.

Versatile Dental Crowns

Dental crowns have a variety of uses, which makes them a dependable go-to in modern dentistry.

  • Supporting a weak tooth—Your dentist may fit your tooth with a dental crown following trauma or a root canal treatment. Infections and injury can make your treated tooth vulnerable to breakage. A dental crown provides a buffer to prevent breakage.
  • Concealing flaws—A dental crown can conceal a variety of tooth flaws, including discoloration, shape issues, small chips, and small gaps between teeth.
  • Topping a dental implant—A tooth crown also tops a dental implant abutment and acts as your replacement tooth.
  • Anchoring a dental bridge—Dental crowns also fit on either side of a restoration bridge, capping adjacent teeth and allowing the restorations to fill in your smile gap.  

We look forward to providing your dental crown.
