A dental crown is very much like a dental veneer only that it covers the entire tooth.
James L. Zimmer, DDS, PC will typically use a crown to restore a tooth that has been damaged, chipped, decayed or fractured, but they can also be used for cosmetic purposes in order to to improve the appearance of a smile. All crowns are now made with several natural looking all porcelain materials and always bonded to the tooth just like a porcelain veneer. No metal is ever needed or used, as in the past.
Modern materials allow James L. Zimmer, DDS, PC to remove much less tooth structure than in the past and also perfectly match the colors and translucency of the patients natural teeth.
For many cosmetic patients, crowns and veneers can be used together as they are indistinguishable from each other.
For a crown to be placed, some drilling is required on the first appointment.
Once an impression is taken, a matching temporary crown is placed for two weeks or less and sent to the lab for final milling or pressing. Think 3-D printing as all is computerized.
No discomfort should ever be experienced by the patient as local anesthesia is always used and sedation of the patient is available when needed
