Your damaged teeth should be repaired without delay
Dental crowns are mainly used to repair broken, worn out or devitalized teeth, and to improve the overall appearance of your smile. A dental crown will completely and permanently cover your natural tooth and protect it against external damages. It is an extremely reliable technique for repairing more severe dental problems and preserving a functional bite. The life of a crown can vary between 5 to 20 years depending on your lifestyle, the condition of the tooth being covered and your previous habits to keep your teeth strong and healthy.
What if your repair was undetectable?
Our goal is to provide undetectable dental repairs and restorations that look exactly like your natural teeth. Dr. Habra and his team offer their expertise to design, create and install high quality dental crowns to all patients in the South Shore area. Since dental crowns can be made from different materials, our team will be happy to help you choose the ones best suited to your needs.
The crown is therefore an artificial tooth that Dr. Habra will install on a damaged tooth that needs to be protected. This is a common treatment that can be used in many circumstances:
- Repairing and protecting a broken tooth
- Strengthening a tooth that has undergone a major filling
- Covering a devitalized tooth for an orthodontic treatment
- Covering a dental implant to replace a missing tooth
- Restoring a natural color to a discolored tooth
How does Dr. Habra set a dental crown in place?
Some steps are needed to design and set a quality dental crown in place. The installation of a crown will usually require at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will prepare the damaged tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel in order to create enough space to receive the crown. Dr. Habra will then take impressions of the prepared tooth and the surrounding teeth to create a personalized crown that will complement your smile perfectly. While your final crown is being created in our laboratory, a temporary one will be installed. It is at your following appointment, that your permanent crown will be cemented in place to give it better stability.
