Dental Crowns

Ideal for protecting a cracked tooth or covering up discoloration, crowns at Key West Crossing Dental Associates can be a great solution for improving your smile. A crown is a tooth shaped cap that fits over a problem tooth to improve strength, size and appearance.

The crown procedure is simple:

  • First we will anesthetize the problem tooth area. Once completely numb, the tooth is filed down so that the crown fits appropriately. 
  • Then, we will take an impression of the tooth to use in the construction of the crown. The impressions are sent away to a dental laboratory to create your crown.  Meanwhile, we apply a sturdy temporary crown over the problem tooth while your permanent crown is manufactured. 
  • Once your permanent crown is ready, you will come back to our office and the crown will be applied. Now you have a new tooth!

Crown placement can offer several benefits:

  • Long term durability
  • Protection from further decay, infection and cracking
  • Improved chewing and talking
  • An improved, natural and healthier smile
