Our Eagan practice offers dental crown treatment for teeth affected from deep cavities, injuries, fractures, or root canal therapy.
Dr. Michael use dental crowns to protect a weakened tooth when composite fillings or dental bonding cannot eliminate the risk of tooth infection or further damage. Most dental crowns today are created from dental-grade ceramic and are ideal for protecting and restoring your compromised tooth for a few reasons:

A minimum of two dental visits are needed to prepare your tooth for a permanent dental crown. At the first visit, Dr. Michael will examine and prepare the natural tooth, as well as take impressions of the tooth to aid in creating the final crown. Preparing your natural tooth involves removing parts of the outer tooth and shaping it to fit snugly with the final crown. Usually, a temporary crown is placed at this point until the permanent crown is completed by a dental ceramist.
Once the permanent crown has been fabricated, cementing it to the tooth is the last step; after the temporary crown is removed by Dr. Michael, he will further shape the natural tooth to ensure a precise fit with the new crown. A special dental cement is applied inside the crown and a bonding agent is applied around the natural tooth. He will then shape the outer area of the crown to ensure an even, natural bite.
