Dental crowns are porcelain structures made to replace a damaged tooth. Getting a crown is a fairly common procedure, but at Legends Dental we’re dedicated to making the experience as painless and convenient as possible for you.

A dental crown is a cap that goes over the visible portion of your tooth. It’s often used to restore the size, shape and overall appearance of the tooth in a simple, inexpensive way. They’re also used to finish dental implant procedure once the titanium implants has healed and fused with the jaw bone. Dental crowns can also help after an injury when teeth have been damaged or when decay and disease have become a problem.

Tooth Pain

You shouldn’t live with dental pain or discomfort. If it hurts, we can help.

Dental crowns are common. Many times the reason for a crown is because the tooth structure is beginning to fail after years with a large filling, or if you need to replace a previous crown that has become damaged or broken.

Teeth that have been worn down over the years sometimes begin to crack. Sometimes this occurs from grinding the teeth or clenching the jaw. In the case of a tooth infection requiring a root canal, treating the tooth requires a partial replacement of the tooth. This is done with a crown, which seals the tooth from further damage and infection and creates a strong surface for chewing.

When you get a dental implant, the replacement tooth that sits on the titanium post is a porcelain crown which has been created to look and act just like a the tooth it is replacing.

When we create crowns at Legends Dental, our priority is both function and appearance. You will be comfortable with the results and your new crown will have a long life due to the latest technologies and techniques we use to make and seat the crown.

Here are a few reasons you may find yourself in need of a dental crown:

-You have a large filling that is beginning to fail

-You had a root canal

-You need to replace and existing crown

-Your tooth is fractured or cracked

-You have lost some of the height on a tooth due to grinding or clenching

-You’re having a dental implant placed

-You have worn down or weak teeth

-You want to correct small imperfections in the appearance of a tooth
