New Port Richey Dental Crowns
Returning Teeth to Glorious Fullness
Even with exceptional oral care, one or more of your teeth may become cracked or eroded at some point. Tooth decay can also contribute to damage. Problem teeth can affect your bite, as well as make you self-conscious when smiling. At A Family Dentist, we provide targeted solutions to damaged and broken teeth through the application of custom-made crowns. Let our experienced dentist restore your smile and refresh the appearance of affected teeth with a beautiful new crown.

How Dental Crowns Are Applied
The process of applying dental crowns will typically involve two to three visits over the course of a month or so. After the procedure is complete, we educate our patients in proper hygiene and encourage them to follow our recommendations to maintain their new crowns and healthy teeth. During your consultation before we begin work on a crown, we will discuss your options for what your crown will be made of. Dental crowns can be composed of a variety of materials such as porcelain, gold, acrylic resin, or even a mixture of these.
Your dental crown treatment plan often includes the following steps:
- Tooth numbing in order to remove localized and surrounding decay
- Sculpturing the tooth to create an ideal crown fit
- Taking an impression to construct a well-fitting, custom crown
- Applying a temporary acrylic resin crown while the final crown is being made
- Removing the temporary crown and affixing your final custom crown
Once our dentist has confirmed that your dental crown fits well and looks great, we will cement it in place. Our friendly dental team will answer any questions you may have and educate you on the right steps to preserve your oral health for the long term. With the proper care and maintenance, your new crown can last you a lifetime.
