Letting a cavity or infected tooth go too long can result in serious oral harm that can result in root canals or extractions.

What is a dental crown?
A crown, sometimes called a cap, is a covering that is placed over a damaged or worn-down tooth to help strengthen the tooth and provide improved appearance, alignment, and shape. If our skilled dentists determine that crown may be right for you, the first step is to numb the tooth and surrounding area using a local anesthetic, so that the damaged tooth can be filed down, and the crown can be later be cemented onto the tooth. An impression of the filed tooth is then made using putty and a high tech digital scanner to ensure that the crown fits perfectly. Our caring staff will then work with you to decide which material to use for your crown, as we here at Dentists in Crown Point have several options to best suit your needs. After the tooth is filed and the molds have been taken, a temporary crown will then be placed over the tooth until your custom mold is ready. The process is usually completed in less than a few weeks and you’ll be back to grinning ear-to-ear in no time at all.
