Dental Crowns in Thornton

Say Goodbye to Cavities!

Are you tired of the nagging pain from a cavity? We don’t blame you. Cavities are never known to feel good, and you may need a dental crown depending on the severity of the cavity.

Dental crowns are a great long-lasting correction for a tooth that’s damaged beyond repair. While we usually do a filling or inlay/onlay, we might have to give you a dental crown instead — depending on the damage. Crowns cover the entire surface area of the tooth, and they are known for protecting and stabilizing teeth after severe dental problems or missing teeth.

Fitting Dental Crowns 101

A dental crown fitting takes two dental visits.

In the first visit, you can expect the doctor to remove the decay and give you a temporary crown. In the second visit, the doctor will remove the temporary crown then fit and cement the permanent crown to your tooth.

Dental Crown Benefits

Crowns can last anywhere from 20 to 30 years depending on how well you maintain them. Some other benefits to getting dental crowns include that they:

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Offer support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
  • Look like your natural teeth
  • Fix your smile and functional chewing problems

The Capabilities of Dental Crowns

We use only the best dental crown materials for all of our patients who are undergoing serious dental issues, using either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. Our crowns relieve tooth pain and allow your mouth to return back to full dental function!

Home Care Instructions

After your surgery, we ask that you refrain from eating or drinking hot beverages to ensure the anesthesia has worn off.

Additionally, if your temporary crown pops off, give us a call at (303)457-3046! To keep them in place, avoid sticky foods and floss carefully.
