Dental Crowns

Dental Crown in Durham, NC

A crown is a dental cap that fully covers the surface of a damaged tooth. If you have significant breakage or decay, a crown can restore the size, shape, and function. It will also strengthen and reinforce the entire tooth structure. Get in touch with the Vanyo Dentistry team today to book a consultation.

How are Dental Crowns Near Me Placed?

The dental crown procedure is very routine and straightforward. There is nothing to fear! Dr. Stephen Vanyo restores tooth flaws with crowns regularly. In fact, the treatment is much like placing a dental filling, except a more significant portion of the tooth is involved. But, the damage or decay may be too extensive for your dentist to repair it with a filling. The crown placement process goes as follows:

  1. The first step is for your Durham, NC, dentist to remove all signs of decay or damage.
  2. We will remove some of the tooth structure to allow space for the crown.
  3. Then we will take mouth impressions at our Durham, NC, dentist office. Next, the molds are sent to an outside dental lab. Here the final crown is custom-crafted by seasoned technicians. Tooth crowns are made with natural-looking porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal. We will discuss the benefits of each crown material at your consultation.
  4. When the lab completes the permanent restoration, you will return to the Vanyo Dentistry. During this appointment, Dr. Stephen Vanyo will cement the crown in place and make any necessary adjustments.

Modern dental crowns are very durable and long-lasting. With proper oral hygiene habits, you will enjoy your beautiful crown for many years. Twice daily brushing, flossing once a day, and regular dentist visits go a long way. If your restoration ever chips or loosens, contact Vanyo Dentistry. We can repair it or replace it with a new cap.
