At Hastings Family Dental, we understand that preserving the strength and appearance of your teeth is essential for your overall oral health and confidence. Dental crowns are a cornerstone of restorative dentistry, designed to protect, cover, and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings do not solve the problem. Whether you are dealing with a damaged tooth, a large cavity or the aftermath of a root canal treatment, our dental crowns offer a durable and aesthetic solution.

The Dental Crown Process

The process for receiving a dental crown involves a few key steps:

  • Initial Examination: Our dentists will start with a comprehensive assessment of your tooth to determine the best course of action.
  • Preparation: The tooth is carefully reshaped to ensure a proper fit for the crown. An impression of your tooth is then taken to create a custom crown that perfectly matches the color and shape of your natural teeth.
  • Temporary Crown: While your custom crown is being made, a temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth.
  • Crown Fitting: Once your custom crown is ready, the temporary crown is removed, and the new crown is precisely fitted and adjusted. It is then securely bonded to your tooth, restoring its natural function and aesthetics.

Benefits of Dental Crowns at Our Practice Include:

  • Restoration of tooth functionality and appearance
  • Protection of a weak tooth from further damage or decay
  • Coverage for a dental implant or a tooth with a large filling
  • Improved chewing and speaking ability
  • A long-lasting solution that, with proper care, can last many years
