Dental Office in 60914
When your tooth structure is severely compromised by dental decay, a cracked filling, root canal therapy or traumatic injury, you may require a dental crown. A dental crown is placed over the treated tooth to restore its normal size, shape and function. At Frederick P. Waldschmidt, DDS, your 60914 dental office, we use state-of-the-art technology and treatment modalities to provide you with the highest quality dental crown restoration.
A dental crown restores the functionality of a damaged tooth, strengthening the overall structure and protecting the underlying tooth structure, and greatly enhances the appearance of a damaged tooth. Your dentist will custom design your crown using impressions and diagnostic films of your teeth. Porcelain crowns capture and reflect light in a way that recreates the natural translucency of tooth enamel. Crowns can also be fabricated from porcelain fused to metal, stainless steel or ceramic materials when deemed appropriate for a particular restoration. Crowns are permanently cemented to the remaining, prepared tooth and can also be used to anchor a fixed dental bridge, another replacement for missing teeth, and to complete a restoration treatment based on a dental implant. Crowns are also a cosmetic solution for teeth that are discolored, misshapen or undersized. Dental crowns are easy to maintain. With regular brushing, flossing and visits to your 60914 dental office, your crowns can last for many years to come. With dental crowns, your smile will look naturally bright and harmonious. You’ll find yourself eating, speaking and smiling with confidence.
