Our restorative dentistry services were created to ensure that we can help patients restore their smiles when something goes wrong. A common dental concern that we treat in our office is dental damage. Dental damage can be anything from a minor chip to a deep crack that threatens to cause pain or discomfort. While some dental damages can be remedied using cosmetic dentistry services, others threaten the functionality of your smile. When this occurs, our doctors will suggest a dental crown to save a damaged tooth. Learn more about dental crowns below.
Dental Crowns in Miami, FL
Dr. Renier Suarez and Dr. Teresa Suarez are here to help you restore your smile following dental damage. They are happy to offer custom dental crowns to replace the entire exterior of a severely damaged or decayed tooth. Patients appreciate our dental crowns because they allow us to repair a broken tooth without requiring an extraction. Unlike porcelain veneers, which only replace the front-facing portion of your tooth, dental crowns replace the entire exterior of your tooth for restored cosmetics and functionality.
The dental crown procedure may require multiple appointments depending on the severity of your dental damage. We will need to shave down the affected tooth to its foundational core. The foundational core will support the custom dental crown once it has been created. We will provide you with a temporary crown to wear until the permanent crown is complete. Once the permanent crown is created by our labs, we will call you back in to permanently attach the crown using dental cement. Dental crowns require extensive enamel removal, meaning your tooth will need to be numbed to ensure you do not experience pain or discomfort. Talk to our doctors about your sedation dentistry options if you are anxious regarding the dental crown procedure.
