At Northpointe Dental, we are dedicated to providing solutions that not only enhance the appearance of your smile but also restore its strength and functionality.

Our dentist and the entire team are committed to utilizing dental crowns to address a variety of dental issues, ensuring your smile is both healthy and beautiful.

Enhance and Protect Your Smile With Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are custom-fitted caps placed over teeth that are damaged, decayed or cosmetically flawed. They are meticulously crafted to match the size, shape and color of your natural teeth, blending seamlessly into your smile. Crowns not only restore the appearance of your teeth but also provide strength and protection, extending the life of your natural teeth.

The Dental Crown Process

The process of receiving a dental crown is thorough yet straightforward, ensuring your comfort and satisfaction every step of the way:

  1. Initial Examination: Our dentist will conduct a detailed examination of your tooth to determine if a crown is the best option for your needs.
  2. Tooth Preparation: The tooth receiving the crown is carefully prepared, which may involve removing a portion of the tooth to make space for the crown.
  3. Impression Taking: An impression of your tooth is taken to create a custom crown that perfectly fits your bite and matches your tooth’s appearance.
  4. Temporary Crown: A temporary crown is placed to protect your tooth while your custom crown is being made.
  5. Permanent Crown Placement: Once your custom crown is ready, the temporary crown is removed, and the new crown is securely fitted and adjusted for comfort and function.

The Advantages of Dental Crowns

  • Restorative Functionality: Reinforces weak or damaged teeth, allowing for normal eating and chewing.
  • Aesthetic Improvement: Offers a natural-looking solution for discolored, misshapen, or severely decayed teeth.
  • Durability: With proper care, dental crowns can last many years, making them a long-term solution for dental restoration.
  • Protection: Helps protect a tooth after a root canal procedure or to cover a dental implant, providing a layer of defense against infection or further damage.
