About Dental Crowns

If your teeth have been affected by decay or other forms of damage, dental crowns may be right for your smile. Dental crowns, popularly known as "caps," are custom crafted to take the place of a missing tooth or cover an existing, flawed tooth. Crowns are made out of all natural materials, including ceramic and porcelain, which means they will blend in flawlessly with your existing teeth and restore harmony to your smile.

Dr. Schmitt and Dr. Ross will customize your crown to your individual needs. Because a lot of attention to detail is needed to craft a prosthetic, our team takes its time constructing your treatment plan and then designing your crown. For smaller restorations, we offer same day crowns that can be milled and installed within a couple of hours in our office using revolutionary CEREC® technology.

We take pride in our work and treat every case on an individual basis. It is for that reason that we mostly work with a state-of-the-art outside laboratory to create your one-of-a-kind restoration. The materials which they use are safe and completely natural-looking, and the amount of detail they put into each prosthetic is breathtaking. Once installed, your dental crown will look so seamless that others will not be able to detect that it is an artificial tooth.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Although dental crowns are most commonly thought of as a restorative dentistry procedure, they do pose many cosmetic and emotional benefits. Some benefits of Orlando dental crowns include:

  • Improved aesthetic- Dental crowns conceal structural damage and enhance the overall appearance of the tooth.
  • Improved oral health- Because structural damage of a tooth is removed prior to installing the prosthetic, your smile will be free of decay. Also, a flawed tooth is covered by the porcelain shell to protect the structure from further damage.
  • Improved function- Dental crowns improve the natural function of the mouth. You will find that speaking, chewing, and even drinking will be easier.
  • Healthier bite- Often, patients who need dental crowns have a misshaped or misaligned bite, which can cause strain on his or her neuromuscular health. Dental crowns can restore balance to your smile.
  • Stronger smile- Dental crowns are designed to make a tooth stronger and make it appear whole again.
  • Easily combined with other procedures- Dental crowns can be used in conjunction with dental bridges and dental implants and is often installed following  teeth whitening treatment.
  • Dental crowns can be fabricated in the convenience of our state-of-the-art facility as well as in an outside laboratory.

Orlando Candidates for Dental Crowns

In order to be a viable candidate for dental crowns, your gums and jawbone must be in good health. Dental crowns may be recommended for your smile if your teeth are:

  • Unhealthy
  • Stained
  • Decayed or decaying
  • Cracked, chipped, or fractured
  • Missing
  • Misshaped or disproportional

Dental crowns can also correct a misaligned bite, restore function to your worn smile, and provide your teeth with additional strength, protection, and support. Often, patients are encouraged to whiten their smiles prior to having a restoration installed. Porcelain crowns cannot be whitened once installed, so it is important that you undergo whitening treatments prior to having the color of your crown matched to your smile.
