Same Day Crowns

What are Dental Crowns?

A crown is a dental restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. The dental crown entirely encases the tooth, starting at the gums, in order to improve its structure, appearance, or function. Our dentist may recommend a crown to:

  • Anchor a dental bridge to replace a missing tooth
  • Enhance the appearance of a severely darkened or stained tooth
  • Strengthen a weakened or fractured tooth
  • Repair a significantly decayed or damaged tooth
  • Support a large filling when little original tooth structure is left
  • Improve the functionality and appearance of an irregularly shaped tooth
  • Protect a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment

HOW ARE DENTAL CROWNS MADE?

Each dental crown is custom made from impressions of your teeth in order to fit your smile precisely. This ensures that your restoration is comfortable and aesthetic. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, porcelain fused to metal, and porcelain. If you are interested in a natural-looking restoration, Dr. Jake R. Richards and Dr. Mitch J Driscoll may suggest an all-porcelain dental crown in Pocatello, Idaho. To learn more about crowns and their uses, we welcome you to call or visit us today at Oak Mountain Dental. Our team is eager to help you reach all of your goals for a healthy, inviting smile!
