Crowns: We Have You Covered in Rocky Hill
If you’re self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A crown can return shape, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw’s correct natural alignment.
While there are different levels of materials that are used to construct crowns, Rocky Hill and Hartford dentist Dr. Michalski uses the finest of materials, such as precious metal, porcelain pressed (or fused) to high noble metal, or all-porcelain crowns. To achieve the most natural looking smile, we recommend all-ceramic crowns. Our precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Porcelain crowns are also extremely durable and long lasting, making them popular with dentists as well as patients.
Typically, we can design, fit, and place your crowns in just a couple of short appointments. Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth in conjunction with professional cleanings and preventive exams at least twice a year.
