Dental crowns are bonded to an existing tooth to help restore oral health and to help improve the appearance of your smile. At O2 Dental Group of Wilmington, we often recommend a dental crown to patients whose teeth don’t have enough healthy enamel to support a filling or to top off a dental implant.
Same-Day Dental Crowns In Wilmington, NCAt O2 Dental Group, we offer same-day dental crowns with advanced CEREC technology. Our lab quality restorations are made right here at our Wilmington dental practice, so you don’t have to spend two weeks waiting for a new dental crown or dental bridge to be sent to our office from an off-site facility.
What Is A Dental Crown?A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A dental crown can help recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma. The crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down to the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile.
Our Wilmington dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth that has been weakened from decay from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
