The use of dental crowns for repairing, restoring, and rejuvenating the smile

Dental Crowns | Windham, NH

The team of Kalil Dental Associates believes in providing patients with a variety of options for enhancing their smiles. With the use of today’s most advanced technologies and techniques, patients can benefit from a variety of ways to improve oral health and wellness. Dental crowns are common restorations for patients in the area who need to repair the function, appearance, and health of their smile.

Dental crowns for restorative treatment

Dental crowns are restorations made of ceramic that are custom-fabricated to bond over the top of a tooth to cover the entire visible area. This is done to achieve full coverage of a tooth that might be weak, damaged, or permanently stained. Dental crowns are incredibly versatile and allow patients the opportunity to enhance the appearance of their smile while addressing common problems which can occur.

Situations in which dental crowns may be required

Dental crowns, or “caps,” are restorations that are commonly used in dentistry. They are used in a variety of situations where the tooth may require placement of a dental crown to resolve. Common issues that may be improved with the use of a dental crown include:

• Teeth that have extremely large fillings in place

• Teeth that are broken or chipped and need improved structure

• Teeth that have been treated with root canal therapy

• Teeth that are permanently stained and need to be disguised

Process of obtaining a dental crown

Preparations are needed before a dental crown can be fabricated. These preparations include the removal of a significant portion of enamel from the natural tooth. Then, impressions are made and used for creating the restoration for the patient. This ensures precision fit and function. The restoration is then fabricated and within a week or two, is bonded in place over the natural tooth.
