Dr. Parag Kirpekar uses crowns to enhance your smile and to protect your dental health. Our dentist uses crowns (or caps) to completely cover an existing tooth in order to restore its strength and structure, protecting it from bacteria. Crowns can also be used to enhance the beauty your smile by covering discolored or misshaped teeth. Crowns are often used to:

  • Replace a large or fractured filling
  • Repair a cracked, fractured, or chipped tooth
  • Attach a dental bridge
  • Protect a weaker tooth
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Restore beauty to teeth that are poorly shaped or stained
  • Protect a tooth that has recently received a root canal

The procedure to receive your custom crown is simple. After we take an impression of your teeth, we’ll send this to a dental lab that will customize your crown to fit your needs. A few weeks later, you will return to our office to have your custom crown placed. Between appointments, you will wear a temporary restoration. Once in place, crowns can last a lifetime as long as you remember to consistently practice good oral hygiene and attend your regular appointments with the dentist.
