Damaged, cracked, and unevenly spaced teeth should not hold you back from loving your smile or feeling confident in front of the camera and around your peers. Whether you stop your smile, hold in your laugh, or try to minimize talking. At Goldstein Dental Center, crowns and caps are recommended to help make a positive change to bring your confidence back.
At Goldstein Dental Center, we understand the concerns of our patients seeking natural-looking improvements to their teeth, and, for this reason, we recommend crowns (also known as caps) for restoring damaged or discolored teeth. With your newly fitted crowns, you won’t have to hide your smile any longer.
Crowns are tooth-like covers that are placed over the teeth for a variety of reasons to improve their appearance or functionality. If your tooth is damaged, cracked, broken, or worn down, a crown can be used to rebuild your tooth. If your tooth is weak or the majority of your tooth is a filling, a crown can help to strengthen and protect your teeth. If your teeth are discolored, a crown can provide a consistent shade throughout your whole smile. Crowns are a permanent solution to all of these common dental complaints, and Atlanta cosmetic dentist Dr. Goldstein is dedicated to ensuring your results are worth smiling about.
There is a variety of different types of materials used for crowns, depending on your individual needs and desires. These materials include porcelain/metal, all porcelain, and all resin. When you meet with Dr. Goldstein, be sure to express your expectations for your new crowns with regard to durability and how natural you wish your crowns to be. Often times, your expectations for the crown depends on the location in which it is being placed.
Before receiving a crown, x-rays will be needed in order to exam the current state of the tooth. Often times, your tooth will then be shaped to best fit a crown. This might involve filing around the tooth so the crown can fit over it or putting in filling material if part of your tooth is missing.
Once your tooth is prepared, impressions of your teeth will be taken to create the crown. A short-term crown will be placed with temporary paste over your tooth to protect it until your crown is ready to be permanently put in a few weeks later.
When your permanent crown is created, local anesthesia will be administered, and your new crown will be placed over your tooth with cementing paste.
Crowns and caps have beautiful results when your dentist has great craftsmanship and talent. While many Atlanta area dentists offer caps and crowns, few have mastered the art of cosmetic dentistry like Atlanta’s very own Dr. Goldstein and Dr. Wait. They are proud to be Certified Dentists, having received extensive training working with crowns and caps.
We are pleased to offer crowns and caps in Atlanta as well as the Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, and Chastain neighborhoods. Please contact Goldstein Dental Center if you are interested in crowns and caps or any other cosmetic dental treatments that are offered at Goldstein Dental Center.
