For expert dental crown restorations in Rock Hill, SC, visit Culp Dental for a consultation. We’ll perform a thorough examination to determine if a crown is the appropriate option for your situation.

What is a dental crown?

Basically, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that’s placed over a tooth to restore its size, shape and strength. The cap is permanently cemented over the tooth, fully encasing the visible portion of the tooth. Our Rock Hill, SC dental patients find that crowns noticeable improve the appearance of their teeth.

Why do I need a crown?

Your dentist at Culp Dental may recommend a crown for the following reasons:

  • To strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left to hold the filling
  • To attach dental bridges
  • To restore a broken (i.e., chipped or cracked) tooth
  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • To cover discolored or badly misshapen teeth
  • To cover a dental implant

What is the procedure?

When you choose Culp Dental for cosmetic dentistry in Rock Hill, we’ll thoroughly prepare your tooth for its crown. We’ll take an impression – or mold – of your mouth and send it to a dental laboratory. Your dentist will then remove any decay, fill in holes and remove a minimal amount of tooth structure.

A temporary crown is often put on until your permanent crown is ready. Once the laboratory-fabricated crown is ready, it is permanently cemented onto your tooth. Contact your Rock Hill, SC dental team at 803-324-2921 to make an appointment.
