Indianapolis area dentist describes the crown procedure

Dr. Matthew Church of Washington Street Dentistry in Indianapolis works with patients who need to repair their smiles. When patients are faced with broken or weak teeth, they have two options: protect the tooth or extract it. Many patients choose a dental crown procedure to protect the structure of the tooth and maintain the function and beauty of their smiles.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a “cap” that a dentist bonds over the tooth structure to add an extra layer of protection. Crowns may also be used to place over the abutment of a dental implant to act as a false tooth. These restorations are fabricated using porcelain. This material is beneficial because it looks like natural tooth enamel and is durable enough to withstand most chewing and biting forces. These restorations are typically used over teeth that have been broken or undergone root canal therapy.

The dental crown procedure

Dr. Matthew Church and his team consult with patients to determine if they are appropriate candidates for dental crowns. This is done during an initial appointment and evaluation. Once patients have decided that dental crowns are right for them, then they move forward and start the process. The procedure for placing a dental crown starts with preparation of the tooth. Impressions are taken and send to the lab to fabricate the crown, which is then bonded in place.
