Whether you need a new dental crown or want to replace an old crown, Bayside Implant and General Dentistry in Chesapeake, VA will provide you with a stable, beautiful result. A dental crown is a common procedure in our Chesapeake, VA dentist office. A dental crown covers the entire tooth and is permanently bonded into place. Using the latest tooth-like materials, Dr. Brent Moses will place the customized “cap” over the tooth to restore its strength and improve its appearance. They are stain and decay resistant and can last for many years. Dental crowns can be color matched to blend seamlessly with your smile for beautiful results.

About The Dental Crown Process
Comprehensive Exam – Dr. Moses will first perform a comprehensive consultation and assessment at his Chesapeake, VA cosmetic dentistry office to determine if dental crowns are right for you. He will examine the teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw joints to diagnose your condition. After that, Dr. Moses will prepare an individualized treatment plan that addresses the health concerns as well as the cosmetic goals.
Preparation of Teeth – Next, Dr. Moses will prepare the tooth for the dental crown. An old tooth filling or old crowns will be removed to create a solid foundation for the dental crown. Impressions will be taken of the tooth that is receiving the dental crown as well as the neighboring teeth to ensure proper fit and placement.
Temporary Dental Crown – In most cases, Dr. Moses will use a temporary tooth crown to provide protection. The temporary tooth cap will be placed on the tooth while the final restoration is being fabricated at the dental laboratory.
Final Placement of Dental Crown – The last step is the final placement of the dental crown. Dr. Moses will try on the dental crown to ensure a proper fit. Once both you and he are satisfied, the dental crown will be permanently bonded to the tooth and gently polished.
