A dental crown is a small cap that we place over your damaged or decayed tooth. They’re made from durable, tooth-colored porcelain to ensure a natural appearance and long-lasting results.
With the help of a dental crown, we can restore full functionality to your tooth and save it from extraction.
Typically, Dr. Grubb uses crowns to treat the following issues:
Crowns are also frequently attached to a dental implant for single-tooth restorations.
Porcelain crowns offer a range of unique benefits, including:
Receiving a dental crown is a relatively simple procedure that we typically complete in just two appointments. During your first visit, Dr. Grubb will take a detailed impression of your smile, which he’ll use to customize your stunning porcelain crown. He’ll also provide a temporary crown to protect your tooth while you wait for the finished restoration.
In about two weeks, your crown will be ready and you can return to our office. Dr. Grubb will ensure that it blends in perfectly with your surrounding teeth before bonding it in place. With proper care, your crown will last ten to fifteen years. Best of all, no one will notice you’re wearing it — all they’ll see is a flawless smile.
If you have a severely decayed or damaged tooth, a dental crown could be the best solution. Contact our practice in Havre de Grace and schedule a consultation with Dr. Grubb to learn more. In just a matter of weeks, you can achieve the smile of your dreams.
