Dental crowns are like caps that are used to protect teeth. At Union Ave Dental in Pueblo, Colorado, we fit patients with crowns almost every day. Along with fillings, crowns are considered some of the most commonly performed dental procedures.
Our team of dentists has the training required to fit you with the right dental crowns. Additionally, our dentists have been doing this for a very long time. Our goal is to provide you with a crown that does an excellent job protecting your teeth and to keep you as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
At Union Ave Dental, we might advise you to get a dental crown if you have a tooth with a cavity that’s too large for a filling. We also recommend crowns to protect and support significantly weaken or cracked teeth. They can also be combined with root canal treatments.
There are many different types of crowns available. Metal, gold, porcelain, and ceramic are some of the materials available to us. The type of material used depends on the affected tooth, the color of surrounding teeth, how much of the natural tooth is left, and patient preference. Each type has a different price and advantages.
Unfortunately, patients need to come in more than once for a crown. The first time is where we get the sizes and send them to a lab. The lab will then make the crown and send it back. In the interval, we fit patients with temporary crowns to protect their teeth.
We also offer same-day crowns. This is a service we provide here at Union Ave Dental, where we can get the measurements of your tooth digitally then create the crown in our office. If you prefer to get your crown completely done on the same day, you’ll just have to wait for about an hour until the crown is made.
Either way, getting a crown is nothing to worry about. We’ll maximize your comfort, and you’ll go home the same day with almost no restrictions or precautions. You will also be able to drive yourself home if you want.
