Dental Crowns in Auburn & Lewiston, ME

Great Falls Dental Associates is proud to provide dental crowns to patients who have teeth that have been damaged from trauma or decay! Dental crowns are essentially tooth-shaped caps that fit over the top of natural teeth and are used to restore broken, damaged, or decayed teeth. Modern-day dental crowns are most commonly made out of porcelain, porcelain-fused metal, or composite resin, as these materials most closely resemble the look of natural teeth. If you have any questions about dental crowns or are looking into a restorative dentistry procedure in the Auburn/Lewiston area, contact our team at Great Falls Dental Associates today to schedule an appointment!


Everything You Need To Know About Dental Crown Procedures

The procedure to get a dental crown starts with a thorough examination of the tooth that needs a crown, which may include dental X-rays and tooth molds. After the use of a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth that is being targeted, the dentist will carefully file the tooth down so a crown can fit over the top of it. Once a crown has been custom-made to match the shape and color of your surrounding teeth, the dentist will cement it to your tooth, restoring your ability to chew, speak, and smile normally! Depending on a few circumstances, the dental crown procedure can take one or two visits to your dentist. If you have any questions about dental crowns or are looking to have a restorative dentistry procedure performed on one or more of your teeth, please contact our team at Great Falls Dental Associates today by calling us at (207) 784-4222 or by filling out the contact form on our website!

Why Might I Need A Dental Crown?

  • Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth
