What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a restoration that completely covers the visible portion of your tooth. Crowns are used to repair teeth that are damaged, decayed, or otherwise structurally compromised. These fixtures can effectively protect and strengthen a tooth that either can’t be restored with dental fillings or has been damaged.

At Smile Brighter, Dr. Wallace offers all-porcelain crowns to achieve a more natural and radiant appearance for your smile. Our dentist will choose a color and shade that closely matches the surrounding teeth, making the cap unnoticeable. All-porcelain crowns are a good choice for patients looking for a quick and long-lasting solution.

The Dental Crown Process

Your first step to a restored smile is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Wallace. This initial appointment will help determine whether or not dental crowns are the best choice for your oral health needs. Once your teeth have been thoroughly examined, the process will begin with numbing your tooth with a local anesthetic. 

Next, he’ll remove a portion of your tooth’s enamel to make room for a porcelain crown before taking a dental impression. These impressions will be sent to the lab as a blueprint for your permanent restoration. You’ll then be sent home with a temporary crown to minimize any irritation until your next appointment. 

Two weeks later, you’ll return to our Willoughby Hills office for your final fitting and Dr. Wallace will make any necessary adjustments. The crown will be bonded to your tooth and you’ll have a new and improved smile.
