For patients whose teeth have changed in size or shape due to trauma or decay, Hormozdi DDS Dentistry offers dental crowns. Also known as caps, dental crowns are custom-fit to cover the entire biting surface and sides of the tooth. Made from a number of durable materials, crowns protect your tooth and restore biting and chewing function.
There are many situations where placement of a dental crown is necessary and beneficial. To achieve optimal results, underlying oral health concerns, such as gum disease and poor oral hygiene habits, should be treated first. Once these are managed, Dr. Hormoz Hormozdi recommends crown placement for the following issues:
At Hormozdi DDS Dentistry, we meet our patients’ needs by first taking impressions of the targeted tooth. This allows us to create a custom crown. As it may take up to two weeks to fabricate permanent dental crowns, impressions are used for a temporary crown. This provides a seamless transition, ensuring patients not without a smile for long.
Before placing a crown, Dr. Hormoz Hormozdi prepares the tooth by removing decay and shaping the surface of enamel so the restoration fits properly. This is done while the tooth is numb, after which the crown will be placed and secured with dental cement. Prior to placing the custom crown, the temporary restoration is removed and the area is thoroughly cleaned. Dr. Hormoz Hormozdi also assess whether your bite is properly balanced after placement.
We provide you with after-care instructions and encourage you to follow up at our Gladstone office regularly.
