Top Dentist in St. Louis, MO

At Butler Hill Dental, we specialize in providing high-quality dental crowns, essential for restoring and enhancing the strength, appearance, and functionality of damaged teeth. A dental crown, commonly referred to as a cap, is a custom-fitted covering that encases the entire visible portion of a tooth down to the gum line, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance.

Why Choose a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns offer numerous benefits and are used in several scenarios:

  • Protection: Crowns protect and strengthen teeth that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
  • Restoration: They are ideal for restoring a tooth that has been significantly damaged by decay or breakage.
  • Cosmetic Enhancement: Crowns improve the appearance of discolored or poorly shaped teeth.
  • Post-Root Canal: After root canal therapy, crowns provide further protection against fracture and decay.

Materials and Customization

We offer crowns made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, zirconia, and metal alloys. Each material has its advantages, and the choice typically depends on the tooth’s location, the color of the adjacent teeth, the function of the tooth, and the patient’s preferences:

    • Porcelain and Ceramic: These materials are popular for their natural color match, making them ideal for front teeth.

    • Zirconia: Known for its durability and strength, zirconia is a great choice for teeth that undergo heavy chewing.

    • Metal Alloys: These are chosen for their strength and are typically used for back teeth.

The Process of Getting a Crown

Getting a dental crown usually requires two visits to our office:

    1. Preparation: The tooth is reshaped to allow the crown to fit seamlessly. An impression of the tooth is taken and sent to a dental lab where the crown is made.

    1. Fitting: On your second visit, the crown is adjusted as needed and then cemented into place, restoring your smile’s functionality and aesthetics.

Post-Treatment Care

Crowns require the same level of care as your natural teeth. Regular brushing and flossing, along with routine dental check-ups, are essential to maintaining the health and longevity of your dental crown.
