So crowns offer a way to repair a damaged tooth, can make them more aesthetic and function more properly. We actually prepare the tooth, take an impression, make a porcelain covering for the tooth; it's actually bonded in place and helps the tooth function like it should normally. So if you have teeth with cracks or excessively large fillings, please come see us because we can discuss your options for covering those teeth with crowns and making them function properly.
- Save teeth compromised by severe decay, breaks, or cracks
- Keep additional damage from happening
- Conceal cosmetic issues such as stains or misshapen teeth
- Make it easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy
- Enable you to enjoy food again
- Replace missing teeth when attached to a dental implant
Dental crowns can also anchor a fixed dental bridge to replace anywhere from a single tooth to several missing teeth. To avoid altering healthy teeth, your dentist can attach a fixed dental bridge to dental implants.
To find out how dental crowns or a dental bridge can strengthen your smile, call 978-278-1760. Our office is available for early morning, evening, and Saturday appointments.
Choose an Inlay or Onlay For a Fix Between a Filling & a Crown
For a cavity that is too large for a simple filling yet not large enough for a dental crown, your dentist will likely recommend an inlay or an onlay. These restorations cover more tooth area than a filling but not the entire tooth like a crown. Inlays are used to repair damage to the biting surface of your teeth, while onlays fix problems on the sides, cusps, and biting surfaces.
Sedation Can Relax You During Restorative Procedures
Your dentist will thoroughly numb you for any restorative dentistry procedures. If you’re still nervous, however, you can get intravenous (IV) sedation. Effective almost immediately, it will keep you in a deeply relaxed, sleeplike state. Our experienced team will monitor you throughout your treatment.
Dr. John Argeros has been using IV sedation during many types of dental treatment since 1977. He has even served as president of the Massachusetts Dental Society of Anesthesiology.
