Dental crowns by Park West Dental Care in Idaho Falls ID

Over time teeth can become weak or severely worn down, leading to decay, cracking, and breaking. This can cause pain and embarrassment. At Park West Dental, Idaho Falls, ID  dentists, Drs. Drake and Jacobson, can restore your teeth to the right size, shape, and strength, alleviating your discomfort in the process. A natural-looking, custom-made concealment called a dental crown can be fit to your broken tooth, returning your smile to its beautiful, natural state.

What Is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns offer a permanent and protective solution for a damaged or broken tooth or teeth. They can be made out of a variety of materials, such as gold or acrylic resin; however, the natural look of porcelain is the preferred material for most crowns.

What Is the Procedure for Getting a Dental Crown?

The process for creating and fitting dental crowns takes place over two to three visits across two or three weeks. Drs. Drake and Jacobson first remove all decay; then the damaged tooth is sculpted and prepared for being fit with a crown; and finally, an impression of your tooth is made for creating the custom tooth crown. You will be fit with a temporary crown while you wait for the permanent one to be made. When your crown is completed, Drs. Drake and Jacobson place it onto the permanent tooth, ensures the fit and look are correct, and cements it into place.

Once fit with your permanent dental crown, you’ll see that it was worth the wait. When crafted carefully and with your individual needs in mind, a permanent crown can restore your confidence, comfort, and overall quality of life.
