Tooth Restoration in Windsor, CT
Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape. At the office of our Windsor, CT dentist, Dr. Roberta Garceau, we recommend crowns for individuals with large fillings, extensive decay, or broken/chipped teeth. Often, teeth that have had endodontic (root canal) therapy benefit from crowns to protect the weak teeth from fracturing.
Crowns are “cemented” onto an existing tooth and fully cover the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes your tooth's new outer surface. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or both. Porcelain crowns are most often preferred because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth and are very strong.
The benefits of crowns include increased tooth strength and optimized aesthetics. Restoring a tooth with a crown can protect against risk of fracture while removing decay that could otherwise lead to pain and infection.
Crowns from Dr. Garceau
At our Windsor dental office, we offer patients two options for crown treatment:
1. Traditional impression and temporary crown (best option for highly cosmetic situations which require custom laboratory shading)
2. Single-visit CAD/CAM porcelain crowns for greatest convenience while maintaining strength and aesthetics.
