Dental Crown Cary NC

A crown is a dental restoration that acts as a cap to cover a tooth. Chipped teeth, broken teeth, and cracked teeth can be restored with a dental crown. In addition, crowns are used to cap off single dental implants to restore missing teeth. If you undergo a root canal, we may use a dental crown to support and strengthen a tooth following treatment.

At Reedy Creek Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Raleigh, North Carolina, Dr. Emily Ann Reece helps patients restore their smiles. Dr. Reece works with patients to find restorative dental solutions that address their specific oral health needs. If you require dental implant treatment or want to cover a damaged tooth, call Dr. Reece for treatment today.

Dental Crown Treatment

Dr. Reece will thoroughly examine the teeth, gums, jaw joints, and other support structures. Once the treatment plan is finalized, Dr. Reece will prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of the natural tooth enamel to accommodate the dental crown.  She will place a temporary tooth cap on the tooth while the final restoration is being fabricated at the dental laboratory. After 2 to 3 weeks, you will return to our Raleigh dental office. Dr. Reece will fit the dental crown on your tooth and secure it for a permanent fit.
