Dental Crowns in Beaver, PA
When extensive decay or damage occurs to a tooth, Dr. Pamela Crumrine our practiced dentist, may suggest a dental crown. A crown is a type of dental restoration made of a tooth-shaped cap that completely encases a tooth up to the gum line. Custom made to fit each individual tooth, a dental crown is most often used to:

  • Hold a broken tooth together
  • Prevent a weakened tooth from breaking
  • Repair moderate to severe tooth decay or damage
  • Support a large filling where little original tooth structure remains
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Keep your smile glowing

Applying dental crowns in Beaver, Pennsylvania generally takes two visits to see our friendly dental team. We work hard to help you feel comfortable during the entire treatment process. During your first visit, we gather all the information we need to have your dental crown manufactured, including molds of your teeth. We will also prepare the tooth to receive the crown, which usually includes a gentle reshaping and buffing process to accommodate the thickness of the dental crown. We will fit a temporary crown over the tooth while the information is sent to a dental laboratory. Once your dental crown has returned to our dental office, Dr. Pamela Crumrine thoroughly examines the dental crown and will temporarily place it onto your tooth to make sure it fits properly. To permanently attach the crown, we use a special cement and curing light. Made from strong porcelain or ceramic, dental crowns are a great way to radically improve the health of your smile while still maintaining a natural aesthetic.
