Dental Crowns

Family Dentistry of Poplar Bluff in Poplar Bluff offers crowns which are ideal for protecting a cracked, broken tooth or covering up tooth discolorations, crowns 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.

Dental Crowns at your Poplar Bluff Dentist

The crown procedure at Family Dentistry of Poplar Bluff in Poplar Bluff is relatively 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 customary crown is manufactured. Once your customary crown is ready, you will come back to Family Dentistry of Poplar Bluff and the crown will be applied. Now you have a bright, healthy-looking 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
