I had a great dental visit. I had worked for a dentist office for 3 years and was very particular when I choose a new office for my family. I heard great things about Dr. Wright and Brittney had been our hygienist years before. Both my visits went very well. Dr. Wright is very personable. Her assistant Tina was very friendly and so was the whole office. They were very helpful when given me info on what I would owe. Dr. Wright fixed an issue for me that I had for years and didn’t think could be fixed. I highly recommend them.

Dental Offices Terrified me….Until I became one of Dr.Frank D’Auria’s first patients (long before “The Center for Dental Health” was established) and grieve his and his staff’s departure. They were a great crew. I’m feeling truly blessed by the seamless transition Dr. Kelly Wright has accomplished. I am not one who is comfortable with change or meeting new people, but everyone in this office is welcoming, friendly, helpful, competent, professional and just plain nice. What can I say other than Thank You.

Dental Crowns: A Royal Treatment for Reinforcing and Beautifying Your Smile

Regain Strength, Functionality, and Aesthetics with Custom Dental Crowns

A damaged or weakened tooth can be a cause of discomfort and concern, affecting not only your oral health but also your self-confidence. Dental crowns offer a regal solution to restore the beauty and functionality of your smile, while also providing vital protection for compromised teeth. At Union Street Dental in Bennington, VT, we are dedicated to providing top-notch dental care, including custom dental crowns tailored to fit your unique smile.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, also known as tooth caps or dental caps, are custom-made restorations that encase a damaged or weakened tooth. They are designed to cover the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gumline, providing structural support and improving its appearance.

The Dental Crown Procedure

Getting a dental crown typically involves two or more dental visits. Here’s what you can expect during the dental crown procedure:

  1. Initial Consultation: Your dentist will examine the affected tooth, discuss your dental concerns, and determine if a dental crown is the appropriate solution for your needs.
  2. Tooth Preparation: In the first appointment, the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth will be removed, shaping the tooth to accommodate the dental crown.
  3. Impressions: Impressions of your prepared tooth and surrounding teeth will be taken to create a custom dental crown that fits perfectly with your bite and smile.
  4. Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being crafted in a dental laboratory, a temporary crown will be placed to protect your prepared tooth.
  5. Crown Placement: In the final appointment, your custom dental crown will be checked for fit and aesthetics before being permanently cemented in place.

Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, each with unique benefits. The most common types of dental crowns include:

  1. Porcelain Crowns: Porcelain crowns offer a natural appearance and are an excellent choice for restoring front teeth.
  2. Porcelain-fused-to-Metal Crowns (PFM): These crowns combine the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain, making them suitable for both front and back teeth.
  3. Metal Crowns: Metal crowns, such as gold or silver, are highly durable and are often recommended for back teeth.
  4. All-Ceramic or All-Porcelain Crowns: These crowns provide exceptional aesthetics and are a popular choice for restoring front teeth.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns offer a range of benefits for patients with compromised teeth:

  1. Restored Tooth Structure: Crowns provide strength and support to weakened or damaged teeth, helping them function like natural teeth.
  2. Enhanced Aesthetics: With their customizable appearance, dental crowns blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, improving your smile’s beauty.
  3. Long-Lasting Solution: With proper care, dental crowns can last for many years, providing a reliable and durable tooth restoration.
  4. Protective Shield: Crowns shield vulnerable teeth from further damage and decay, preserving your oral health.

At Union Street Dental in Bennington, VT, we believe in the power of dental crowns to rejuvenate and protect your smile. If you have a damaged or weakened tooth or are considering dental crowns for any other dental concern, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation with our experienced dental team.
