Dental Crowns

A crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other type of restorations.

Reasons for Crowns:

  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Severely decayed teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • Large fillings
  • Tooth that has a root canal
  • Cosmetic enhancement

What does getting a crown involve?

Dr. Patel will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once the tooth is prepared, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly. Because temporary crowns are placed with temporary cement, they will occasionally come off before your next appointment. If this were to occur, simply contact our office to determine if you should come in prior to your next appointment to have it placed back on.

At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the fit is perfect and bite is normal.

You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.

If you would like more information about dental crowns and how they can make a difference to your smile, call us today at (919) 322-0390 to set up an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Patel and his staff are knowledgeable, professional, and absolutely wonderful. As a person who has, for years, experienced anxiety when faced with trips to the dentist, I am delighted to have found this practice. Not only is Dr. Patel personable and likable, he very clearly explains his recommendations and uses up-to-date x-ray and photo technology to show his patients what he sees during his thorough examination."

W. O.

"My dental experience with Dr. Patel has been nothing but amazing. He took time to explain any concerns and questions i had. He actually took time to make me understand the cause of my problem and told me what to do to prevent it from happening again. Most doctors just fix the problem and let you go until it happens again. He is very gentle and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend going to Dr. Patel. Going to his office feels like I'm stepping in a spa at first. All the dental anxiety is forgot as soon as i see Dr. Patel's caring personality."

Nirali J.

"I would recommend Dr. Patel (and his staff) to anyone who is looking for a dentist that genuinely cares about their patients. Overall I had a great experience."
