The Best Dental Crown Services in South Jordan, UT
Teeth might seem tough, but long-term decay or a sudden accident can severely damage your teeth. If you’ve had a recent chip or crack, you are familiar with just how fragile teeth can be.
Unfortunately, damaged teeth become a liability if they are not taken care of properly. However, you can restore your teeth with targeted dental work. Come visit Dr. Jerry F. Maymi & Associates in South Jordan, UT to receive a dental crown.
What Is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are artificial caps placed on damaged or decayed teeth. They look and act like normal teeth, effectively replacing the decayed upper portions of a failing tooth. There are a few types of dental crowns made out of different materials, including:
- Base metal alloys
Each has advantages and disadvantages that you can discuss with Dr. Maymi when you visit.
When Do You Need a Dental Crown?
We might recommend that you receive a crown if you have a cracked tooth or if one of your fillings failed to protect you against decay. We also use crowns to complete other procedures. For example, we will top off a root canal or implant with a crown.
What Does a Typical Procedure Look Like?
If Dr. Maymi decides you should get a dental crown, he will evaluate your teeth. Dr. Maymi will remove any decay or old fillings and clean the area to prepare it for the crown. Then, with our CEREC same-day crown technology, we can use a special 3-D camera to image your tooth, and we’ll print off a crown to fit it precisely. All of this will take place during one appointment, unlike with traditional crowns.
When you have a chipped tooth or a filling that keeps bothering you, come talk to Dr. Maymi. Call (801) 253-7553 to schedule an appointment today.
