At Aspenwood Dental Associates and Colorado Dental Implant Center, our skilled cosmetic dentists offer dental crown restorations for patients who have teeth that need more protection and reinforcement than a filling can provide. Think of a dental crown as a way to protect a badly damaged tooth, a kind of armor for weakened enamel.
The Purpose of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are most often used to restore strength and functionality to a compromised tooth. They are frequently placed on teeth that have been treated with a root canal, or on dental implants. In the dental bridge procedure, crowns are used to anchor a false tooth to the teeth on either side of a missing tooth. A crown may also be used for cosmetic reasons to hide flaws like chips, cracks, or discoloration. Our dental crown professionals perform a lot of crown restoration work, helping patients with worn or outdated crowns improve their appearance and function.
No matter what the reason, dental crowns are a great way to improve self-confidence and help patients become proud to show off their smiles. With advanced, lifelike dental crown materials, we are able to ensure your dental crown is indistinguishable from other teeth.
Convenient Crown Treatment
As Aspenwood Dental Associates, we have a modern dental crown and bridge lab right here at our practice, so our dentists are able to maintain very high standards of quality. First, Dr. Yaros, Dr. Zeppelin, or Dr. Augustine will prepare the tooth by removing a small amount of enamel. An impression of the tooth and digital images are sent to our in-house lab for design and fabrication of your new crown. The use of the E4D CAD/CAM technology allows us to create your dental crown the very same day. Once your crown is finished, we will check the shade, make sure the fit is comfortable, and bond the restoration permanently.
