Crowns and Veneers
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over the damaged tooth to restore its shape and size and improve its appearance. These Dental crowns are used to solve various problems related to teeth, from a root canal and lost filling to cracked, chipped teeth.
We specialize in fitting porcelain crowns at Mahimaa Dental Care. Unlike traditional crowns, they do not contain any metal and are free of potentially dangerous chemicals to your body. Porcelain crowns, like porcelain veneers, provide your teeth a more aligned and symmetrical appearance. Porcelain crowns have the extra medical benefit of being full tooth crowns, adding strength, longevity, and stability to your teeth.
Our Dental professionals will take an impression of your teeth to guarantee that the crown fits precisely according to the exact dimensions of the damaged teeth.
Except for the gum line, a crown protects a tooth from decay. If we believe you are at high risk of developing cavities, we may recommend that you apply a high-fluoride gel every night. Please note that a porcelain crown does not protect against gum disease, so you should continue a normal Dental hygiene program brushing twice a day as well as flossing daily.
