Dr. Ross and Dr. Chmiel may suggest a dental crown in Franklin, Wisconsin, if one of your teeth is damaged or badly decayed. A dental crown is a custom-made cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its strength, shape, size, and appearance.

A dental crown may be recommended for your smile if you have a tooth that:

– Is weak or cracked
– Is broken
– Is badly worn
– Is misshaped or badly stained
– Has a large filling without much tooth structure left

Before placing a dental crown, our dentists will first examine the tooth and take X-rays of the tooth’s root and the surrounding bone. Your tooth will then be numbed so that it can be prepared and shaped for the crown. An impression of the tooth is then made so that your crown can be custom made. A shade will also be selected that closely matches that of your natural smile.

Once your dental crown is complete, our dentists will check the fit and shade. If everything is as it should be, the new crown is permanently cemented into place.
