Crowns

The Confidence Of A Full And Functional Smile

If you have a missing or damage tooth, a crown is an excellent, long-lasting way to regain a full and complete smile. Crowns, also known as caps, are a kind of artificial teeth. They can be made from a variety of materials, offering flexibility in terms of function and appearance. A crown’s center is hollow and designed to fit over a pre-existing tooth or is fitted to attach to a dental implant. A well-made and fitted crown not only restores the look of your missing or damaged tooth, it also restores its function. It will also give structural support to its neighboring teeth, preventing further tooth loss and disease. Cape Dental Care has offered custom-crafted crowns since 1989, restoring countless smiles throughout Cape Coral and Lee County.

 

How A Crown Can Help Your Smile

Every dental crown made for our patients is uniquely crafted, and the reasons patients come to us for crowns are just as unique. For some, a crown is a cosmetic choice. Missing, damaged, or misshapen teeth, especially those at the front of the mouth, can be a source of discomfort and embarrassment. Cape Dental Care crafts crowns out of composite resin, porcelain, and ceramic materials. In every case, your new tooth is totally lifelike, giving you the smile you desire. In other cases, a crown is a functional choice. Damaged or missing teeth can cause pain or discomfort, create difficulty chewing or speaking, and lead to dental disease and decay or further tooth loss. Crowns are durable and functional and provide much-needed support to neighboring teeth. No matter your reason for getting a crown, it can mean a world of difference to your dental well-being.

 

How Will My Crown Be Fitted?

A well-crafted crown is one made to match the unique shape and color of your mouth and existing teeth. If your crown is being made to fit over a pre-existing tooth, that tooth will first need to be re-shaped to make sure the crown fits properly. Cape Dental Care then uses the latest advancements in 3D imaging to map the shape and contours of your mouth. We do this in order to ensure the most secure, precise, and lifelike crown possible. Once your mouth’s shape has been mapped, we have your crown custom-crafted in a specialist lab. In the meantime, a temporary crown is put in place. When your permanent crown is complete, it is attached to the existing tooth or implant using hard-bonding resin cement. You can then begin to enjoy the new function, beauty, and freedom afforded by your new smile.

Will I Be Comfortable Wearing My Crown?

Most patients adapt quickly to their crowns. You’ll find that your crown feels at home in your mouth in nearly no-time. Any discomfort than came from your damaged or missing tooth will soon be forgotten.
