Damaged, discolored or decayed teeth can have a significant impact on both your confidence and daily life. Crowns provide a seamless solution for functional restoration and cosmetic enhancement. At Audubon Dental, we specialize in crafting customized crowns designed to restore the strength, function and beauty of your teeth.

What are Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom-made caps that are placed over a damaged tooth or dental implant. They are designed to replicate the shape, size and color of your natural teeth, offering a holistic solution for various dental issues, such as broken or weakened teeth and for covering dental implants.

The Crown Placement Process

Our skilled dentist will first prepare the affected tooth by removing decay and reshaping its surface. Next, we’ll take an impression to ensure that your custom crown fits perfectly. You may receive a temporary crown until your permanent one is ready. During the final visit, the permanent crown is securely bonded into place, giving you a tooth that is as good as new.

Benefits of Crowns

Crowns offer a host of benefits. Apart from restoring the structural integrity of a damaged tooth, crowns also improve the aesthetic aspects of your smile. They are highly durable and can last many years with proper care. Crowns are also versatile and can be used in conjunction with other dental procedures like bridges and implants.

Caring for Your Dental Crowns

Maintaining your crowns is similar to taking care of your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing and dental checkups are essential for longevity. Avoid habits like grinding your teeth or chewing on hard objects, which can compromise the integrity of the crown.
