The dental crown is permanent restoration that is designed to look and function like the tooth. For a more natural looking solution, dental crowns are color matched, shaped, and placed with your exact dimensions and aesthetic in mind.
Receiving a dental crown may require 2-3 visits to are Arlington dental office. During the early visits, we take impressions of the teeth for the fabrication of your custom dental crowns. During the fabrication process, a temporary dental crown is placed.
At the next visit, before we place the dental crown, the aesthetic and function of the dental crown are examined to ensure an optimal result. Once approved, the dental crown is carefully placed and secured. The surface of the dental crown is polished to reveal the natural shine.
Dental crowns can last many years with proper oral hygiene and routine preventive dental care.
