Choosing a Dental Crown Specialist

Dr. Buie is a specialist in the field of dental crowns. As a prosthodontist, he has an extensive, specialist level training and understanding of various materials and fabrication techniques that are current and up to date.

He uses state of the art software to design most restorations himself, and applies colorants and completes most of his own porcelain work in-house.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A crown, also known as a cap, is a dental restoration that fully encases the visible portion of a tooth known as the tooth crown. Dental crowns preserve damaged teeth, restoring their strength, form, and function. They are very durable, with the potential of lasting a lifetime with proper care. 

Tooth Repair With Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns are commonly used to repair teeth weakened due to large cavities and little tooth structure remaining by preventing further damage or breakage. They can hold together parts of cracked or fractured teeth and can restore broken or severely worn down teeth. Dental crowns are routinely used to cover teeth after root canal treatment to strengthen them and to prevent fracturing. They can also be placed on dental implants to function as tooth replacements, restoring missing teeth, and providing support and stability for dental bridges or dentures.

Crowns and Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental crowns offer an aesthetic cosmetic dentistry solution. They are often used as a component of a smile makeover to correct the appearance of misshaped, misaligned, or discolored teeth. Porcelain crowns mimic the properties of teeth, delivering an incredibly natural appearance.

Dental Crowns and Pain Relief

Patients with cracked tooth syndrome often see relief with the placement of dental crowns. This condition involves a fracture inside a tooth that causes significant pain when chewed on in a certain way. The chewing forces produce stress on fracture lines, causing pain and discomfort. A dental crown holds together the tooth, and redistributes the pressure evenly, alleviating the pain in most cases.

Caring for your Dental Crowns

You will need to care for your dental crowns just as you would for your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily, and avoid clenching, grinding, or biting down on hard foods or objects to prevent damage to your crown. Make sure you schedule routine dental exams and cleanings every six months to maintain your oral health and to allow us to monitor your restorations.
