Dr. Bruce Lee and Dr. Robert Lee in Centennial, CO, perform effective and convenient dental crown procedures. A dental crown, also referred to as dental cap, is a protective, sturdy shell that is custom made from porcelain, ceramic, gold, or a combination of materials. Tailored to fit precisely over a damaged, cracked, or decayed tooth, dental crowns not only restore dental function but can also return a tooth to its natural look. Our doctors use only the most advanced technologies and dental equipment available so that patients receive the appearance and functional benefits that dental crowns provide. Ultimately, the goal is to provide a crown that is undetectable and feels and functions like your natural teeth.
A Restoration Customized to Perfection
The dental crown procedure begins with an impression of your existing tooth. Essentially, the mold assists the lab with creating, shaping, and sizing the dental crown restoration to perfection. During this visit, Dr. Robert Lee or Dr. Bruce Lee can expertly craft a temporary crown that you can wear until the final restoration is ready to be fitted. As such, you can maintain that personal smile that makes you unique.
Adjustments for the final restoration start with a local anesthetic. Once the area is sufficiently numb, the doctor can remove the temporary crown and then prepare the tooth by reshaping its contours. When the crown is securely attached to the tooth, you can enjoy a natural look and feel.
Dr. Robert Lee and Dr. Bruce Lee have successfully performed countless dental crown procedures, and can provide the same high-quality dental care for you and your family.
A Strong, Reliable Solution for Damaged Teeth
Crowns are a reliable and strong preventative care solution to many major dental conditions. Whether you have suffered dental trauma, undergone root canal therapy, experienced a hairline fracture, or have worn dental work, crowns can provide protection and increase your chances of having healthy gums and teeth. Many people come to our dental office complaining of unexplained pain, discomfort or sensitivity that turns out to be a small split in the tooth enamel. Dental crowns can alleviate this pain, allow full function to return, and provide continued support to adjacent teeth. This helps to prevent further deterioration of your bite, gums, and jawbone.
Materials used in dental crown procedures include high-quality porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. Because of its unusual strength, a hybrid of gold and porcelain is recommended for very serious dental situations. Generally, we recommend porcelain crowns for front teeth replacement, because of their natural-looking appearance. However, stronger hybrids are preferable for back teeth or molars because of their ability to withstand force and chewing.
