Dental Crowns in Charlotte, NC

Are you dealing with a severely decayed or damaged tooth? If so, you may need more support. Luckily, a dental crown can restore the damage and help your smile look as good as new. At QC South Dentistry, Dr. Rebecca Bradley strengthens existing teeth with dental crowns to protect them against additional decay or other tissue damage.

Dental Crowns Defined

If you need dental work, you may have heard the term “crowns” come up—but what exactly are dental crowns? In the simplest of terms, a dental crown is a type of cap placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Crowns can be made of various materials, such as porcelain or metal, and can be custom-made to match the color of your natural teeth. While the idea of getting a dental crown might sound daunting, rest assured that it is a standard and routine procedure that can help restore your smile to its former glory.

Dental Crowns are a Proven Solution

Dental crowns repair various dental issues, from broken or cracked teeth to those that have undergone a root canal. There are many reasons why people opt for dental crowns, such as to cover a large dental filling, to restore a cracked or broken tooth, or to improve the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth. Whatever the reason, dental crowns are a reliable and effective solution that can help get your oral health back on track.

Dental Crown Placement

Taking care of your teeth is essential for your overall health, and if you require a dental crown, the placement process may seem overwhelming. With today’s modern technology, getting dental crown treatment takes just two visits a couple of weeks apart. Rest assured that the process is relatively straightforward, and Dr. Bradley will guide you through each step with kindness and care.
 
First, she will prepare the affected tooth by removing any damage and shaping it to provide room for the crown to cover the tooth. Then, an impression is taken to create a custom-fit crown at the dental lab. In the meantime, a temporary crown will be placed to protect your tooth until the crown is ready. Once the custom crown is made, Dr. Bradley will place it and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.
