Dental Crowns in Quincy, MA

Dental crowns have several advantages, and your dentist may recommend one for several reasons.

For example, you may need a crown if:

  • You have a cavity that is too large for a simple filling. Plaque and acid can destroy dental enamel and cause cavities in the mouth.
  • Dental crowns are also used when there is limited tooth structure. The dentist will remove the weakened or decayed area and place a crown to protect the remainder of the tooth.
  • Your tooth is cracked, weakened, or worn down and needs to be held together.
  • You want to improve your smile. Discolored or badly-shaped teeth can detract from our appearance; dental crowns can be effectively used to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Dental Crown Procedure

Patients generally require two visits to our dental office for dental crown treatments. There are four main steps involved in placing a dental crown:

  • During the first visit, our expert dentist will prepare your tooth by removing the outer layer. He will also examine the tooth to make sure it can support a crown. If an additional tooth structure is required, your dentist may begin filling the tooth.
  • A filling may be required if the tooth has been severely broken or damaged.
  • They will then take an impression of the tooth as well as of surrounding teeth and send it to a lab for preparation.
  • At the end of your first visit, your dentist will most likely fit you with a temporary dental crown.
  • During the second visit, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and use a special adhesive to place the permanent crown.
