Dental Crowns

In situations where an individual’s teeth are damaged beyond repair, a form of porcelain crowns can be used to restore the look of your smile. These dental crowns are designed to restore the smile of all our Lakeview patients, so they can smile with pride without worrying about the overall look of their teeth.

Crowns are often extremely reliable and can repair even the most severe dental problems. In some cases, they can even be used to completely replace missing teeth, giving individuals back their function and aesthetic. At Chicago Family Dental Care, we are known for our quality workmanship and the changes we have completed for many of our patients. Crowns are designed to last longer and provide a long-term solution to many major dental problems. When cared for properly, they can last between 20 and 30 years.

Length of Treatment

You will likely need to make two appointments to fit dental crowns in place. First, our dental staff must remove any decay, reshape the tooth and then place a temporary crown until the permanent one can be crafted. This temporary dental crown is designed to help you keep the functionality of your teeth until your permanent crown can be placed. This is because it can take some time to manufacture the crown and then install it permanently.

At the second appointment, you will be fitted for the final crown, removing the temporary one and making any necessary adjustments. Once finished, we will cement that crown to your existing structure, so it looks and acts just like your natural teeth. No one will know you’ve had dental crowns installed instead of your natural teeth. This allows you to smile with pride, so you don’t have to worry about what people will think of you when you flash your pearly whites.

If we use Cerec crowns, only one visit will be required. That’s because these dental crowns are created right in our Lakeview dental office. You won’t have to wait for us to send them out to an outside lab and then get them back to install the crowns. It can all be done while you wait. Our dental staff will help you decide which type of crown will work best in your situation.

Reasons You May Need Crowns

Crowns and bridgework are often used to correct major dental issues, which may have been caused by disease, normal wear and tear, or accidents. Many of these significant issues can be corrected with crowns made from high-grade porcelain bonded with gold or porcelain alone. It is necessary to use the highest strength materials to ensure longevity when serious issues are corrected. When there is accidental damage, such as lost or broken teeth, including those caused by broken or lost fillings, porcelain crowns and bridges may sometimes be used to correct appearance and function. These tools can also be used to fix the results of grinding or after a patient undergoes a Root Canal, which can leave the tooth weakened.

When you aren’t happy with the way your smile looks, there are a number of options available for treatment to restore your teeth. Dental crowns in Lakeview are among the most popular option because they can be used to fix a vast array of issues. Our dental staff will go over your current dental health and recommend whether this treatment is the right one to give you a smile you can be proud of. You won’t be ashamed to flash your pearly whites ever again.
