Dental Crowns Dentist in Washington, MO
Dental Crowns Correct Smiles
If you are self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, Dr. Mace and his team can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaws correct natural alignment.
How are Dr. Mace’s Crowns Made?
At James G. Mace DDS in Washington, Missouri, they use precious metal, porcelain pressed (or fused) to metal, or all-porcelain crowns. To maintain a fully white smile, Dr. Mace recommends all-ceramic crowns for teeth in the front of the mouth. Their precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Porcelain crowns are also extremely durable and long-lasting, and these benefits make them popular among patients.
How does Dr. Mace Place the Crown?
Typically, they can design, fit, and place your crowns in just a couple of short appointments. Dr. Mace uses the iTero 3D scanner to create an incredibly accurate digital model of your teeth. This information is then sent to Eurodent Dental Lab to have your crown fabricated with precision and esthetics. Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth. Be sure to visit James G. Mace DDS in Washington, Missouri at least two times each year for professional cleanings and a preventive exam, too.
