Dental Crowns in Pueblo

Durable Restorations for Weak or Damaged Teeth

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are restorations that are designed to cover the entire visible area of the tooth. Crowns can be made of ceramic, metal, or porcelain, depending on the area in the mouth where a crown is needed. At Pueblo Dental, we offer high quality dental crowns in Pueblo at a lower cost than most dental practices in the area.

If you are interested in more information about crowns, call (719) 722-3584 to set up an appointment for consultation with our Pueblo dentist. 

How Dental Crowns Are Used

Dental crowns are a common and versatile restoration that can be used to correct a broad range of problems and imperfections. Because the crown completely covers the tooth, it can be effective for providing strength to a tooth that is weak due to a root canal or fracture and for correcting cosmetic imperfections in teeth.

Dental crowns are used for:

  • Broken teeth
  • Protection for weak teeth
  • Significant decay
  • Discoloration when whitening isn’t possible

In addition to covering a damaged tooth, dental crowns can be used to replace a missing tooth. When a tooth is missing, we can place a dental implant into the jawbone to create an artificial tooth root. After the implant has healed and fused to the bone, a crown can be attached to the implant to create a stable and durable restoration. If you need a crown to replace a missing tooth, we offer implants and dental crowns in Pueblo.

The Dental Crown Procedure

If a crown is needed, the first step is to prepare the tooth for the crown and create an impression of the tooth. The impression is used to craft a custom crown that will fit perfectly over your existing tooth to strengthen it, improve the appearance, and restore the function of the tooth. A temporary crown may be placed to protect the tooth until your permanent restoration is ready.

You will return to the office when the permanent crown is ready. During this visit, we remove the temporary crown. We will check the fit of your permanent crown and make any necessary adjustments to ensure an ideal fit before we cement the permanent crown in place. Most people don’t experience any discomfort with this procedure, although some may have a bit of sensitivity immediately after the crown is placed.

Caring for Your Crowns

With proper care, dental crowns can last for decades. Although crowns restore the normal function of your teeth, the restoration can be damaged. To prevent damage, it is important to avoid chewing ice, hard foods, and grinding your teeth, as these can damage the crown. You should brush and floss your teeth as usual and visit the dentist for regular exams to keep the surrounding teeth and gums healthy.

Dental insurance usually covers at least a portion of the cost of dental crowns in Pueblo. Financing options are available with custom payment plans to help make getting the dental work you need more affordable.
