Do you have trouble chewing or feel embarrassed to show your smile? A dental crown may be the solution for you. At SmileStyle Dental Studio, we specialize in placing and restoring dental crowns. Contact us today to book a visit.
Crowns are tooth-shaped "caps" that cover the top of your teeth and restore them to their original form and size. They are ideal for numerous needs, such as protecting a weak tooth from further decay and damage, restoring a broken or worn down tooth, holding a dental bridge in place, or covering a discolored or misshapen tooth. They also help support large fillings when there isn't enough tooth to hold them in place.
Whatever reason you need it, our cosmetic dentist in Bankers Hill can recommend the best procedure to get you smiling again confidently.
A dental crown can prevent a tooth extraction if there is a sizeable amount of tooth remaining.

Your crown will move as you bite and chew, so you don't have to worry about it affecting your speech or succumbing to wear and tear. Besides, creating the crown is done with state-of-the-art technology, allowing you to get a more precise fit and look.
Dental crowns are incredibly durable, lasting over ten years if properly cared for. This means that once you've got a dental crown, you won't have to worry about replacing it anytime soon.
When a dental crown is installed at SmileStyle Dental Studio in Bankers Hill, your natural tooth remains beneath it. This protects against bone loss and gum recession, common with other oral surgery procedures requiring removing large parts of healthy teeth.
The process starts with a consultation at SmileStyle Dental Studio with Dr. Kerry Ahmadi. Here, your Bankers Hill dentist will take X-rays to determine whether a crown is appropriate for the condition of your tooth.
Once it's determined that a dental crown is the right way to go, your dentist prepares your tooth by reshaping it and making room for the crown. During this step, they may also use a rubber compound to make an impression of your teeth—this will be used to create an exact model of your mouth and ensure proper crown fit.
Dr. Kerry uses advanced imaging tools to create models of the permanent crown itself! She will then fit a temporary one until the final restoration is placed at a later appointment.
At the last appointment, the permanent restoration is given its final fit and adjusted as needed- Once you have a new crown, you can go home with that newfound confidence!
We can't wait to see you.
Dental crowns are durable but may eventually need to be replaced due to wear, damage, or other issues. The lifespan of your dental crown depends on factors such as the material used, the location of the crown, and your oral hygiene habits.
A crown is a great option if you have a large cavity, weakened tooth structure, or a fractured tooth that can't be repaired with fillings or other materials. They can also hold parts of a broken tooth together or cover severely discolored or misshapen teeth.
