Teeth that have been broken, worn, damaged or visibly destroyed by decay can still be saved.
A dental crown is a covering placed over the damaged tooth to protect it from further harm and to make it look more natural and beautiful. The placement of a dental crown over a visibly injured tooth is both cosmetic and protective.
To place a dental crown, the dentist first properly prepares and shapes the tooth. Next, an impression is taken and a temporary crown is placed over the tooth. The impression is sent to a dental lab and the permanent crown is made. When you come in for your next appointment, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and cement the new, permanent one in place.
Dr. Aunon believes in having the most up to date technology that dentistry has to offer to greatly reduce and ultimately eliminate any fear of going to the dentist for the adult, teen, and especially the child. With the help of his highly qualified and caring staff, he promises the most comprehensive dental care.
