There are many reasons for why a patient might need a crown. In some cases, it’s because a tooth is severely decayed. In others, the tooth may be damaged or cracked. Whatever the case, a crown can return structure and functionality to a damaged tooth, preserving oral health and preventing the need for more extensive care, like a tooth extraction.
Crowns work by completely covering the tooth that needs to be treated. They can be made of variety of materials, including metal, but a porcelain crown mimics the look of a natural tooth better than other kinds.
At Premier Walk-In Dental, Dr. Jeff Nichols can help you restore your smile in just a couple of visits, no appointment needed. On your initial appointment, our Rockledge team will modify your tooth and make an impression of it. Then we’ll cap it with a temporary crown. Our lab will use the impression we’ve made to create a customized crown that will permanently replace the temporary one we’ve given you. When it’s ready, you’ll come back to our Rockledge office to it put in place of the temporary crown we gave you last time, putting the finishing touches on your crown restoration.
Call or visit Premier Walk-In Dental if you need help with a crown. We offer crown restorations to patients from Cocoa, Satellite Beach, Merritt Island, Viera, Suntree, Melbourne, and Palm Bay, Florida.
