Dental Crowns Provide Dependable Restorative Improvements

Older man surfing at beachIf 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 structure, 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 your jaw's correct natural alignment.

We use all-porcelain crowns, and on some occasions, precious metal or porcelain pressed (or fused) to metal. To maintain a fully white 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, and these benefits make 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 just like your natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from damaging bacterial growth. Be sure to see us at least two times each year for professional cleanings and a preventive exam, too.

Take the first step toward health and wellness by contacting our West Ocean City dental office and reserving your appointment with Dr. Edward T. Dougherty. Delmarva Sedation Dentistry serves the entire Delmarva Peninsula, including Bethany Beach, Selbyville, Rehoboth, Fenwick, Ocean Pines, Salisbury, and Berlin with gentle, holistic care for smiles that will last a lifetime.
