A dental crown is a customized, tooth-shaped cap that fits right over the tooth—completely covering the tooth. A dental crown is used to restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of a damaged tooth. Our dental experts are here to help you choose the best way to care for your teeth and keep them healthy and strong.
If you have a damaged tooth, give us a call to set up a consultation for a dental crown and get on the path to restore your beautiful smile!
Receiving a Dental Crown
Obtaining a dental crown often takes 2 visits. On your first visit to Platinum Dental Care Provo, our friendly team will take digital, low-radiation x-rays of your teeth and gums. The dentist will then numb the tooth and gums with local anesthesia and gently prepare the tooth for the crown.
Next, our team will take an impression of the tooth using a putty or paste and the dentist will place a temporary crown on your tooth to hold you over until your next visit. Between visits, your permanent crown will be made in the material you have determined with your dentist and will be fitted and permanently adhered to your tooth on your second visit.
