Overview of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a common dental restoration used to repair and protect teeth that are damaged, decayed, or weakened. At Hughes Dental Group Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Bradley Hughes offers custom-made dental crowns to restore the strength, shape, and appearance of teeth. Dental crowns are made of porcelain, and are designed to match the natural color of the patient’s teeth.

Once placed, dental crowns can protect the underlying tooth structure from further damage, as well as restore the patient’s ability to chew and speak normally. Dental crowns can also be used to restore a tooth that has been weakened by a large filling, or to cover a dental implant. Dr. Bradley Hughes is experienced in providing quality dental crowns that look and feel natural.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are an excellent way to restore teeth that are damaged or decayed. A crown is designed to fit over a damaged tooth to protect it from further damage. They can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth, and restore its original shape and size. Crowns are a great way to restore the function and beauty of a tooth.

At Hughes Dental Group, we offer high-quality dental crowns to our patients in Okatie, SC. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Bradley Hughes, will take the time to discuss your individual needs and create a custom crown for you. Our crowns are designed to look and feel natural, and will provide you with long-lasting results. With proper care and maintenance, your crown can last for many years.

Types of Dental Crowns

At Hughes Dental Group Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer a variety of crowns to meet the needs of our patients. Our team of experienced professionals will work closely with you to help determine the best type of crown to fit your individual needs.

We offer both porcelain and metal crowns. Porcelain crowns are made from a ceramic material that is color-matched to the shade of your natural teeth. They are strong and durable, and provide a natural-looking restoration. Metal crowns are made from a variety of metals, such as gold, palladium, or chrome. They are highly durable and can last for many years.

No matter what type of crown you choose, Hughes Dental Group Family and Cosmetic Dentistry will provide you with a comfortable and personalized experience. Our team is committed to providing quality dental care and helping you achieve your smile goals.

Preparing for a Dental Crown

Dental crowns are a type of restoration that can help protect a damaged or decayed tooth. At Hughes Dental Group Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Bradley Hughes can assess your needs and determine if a dental crown is right for you. By fitting a crown over a tooth, it can help to strengthen the tooth as well as restore its shape, size, and appearance.

The process to fit a dental crown usually takes two visits. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared and an impression is taken. The impression is then sent to a laboratory where the crown is made to fit your mouth. During the second visit, the crown is fitted and adjusted for a comfortable fit. With the help of Dr. Hughes, you can be sure that your crown will be placed correctly and look natural.

Aftercare for Dental Crowns

Caring for your dental crown is important for its longevity. To ensure your crown stays in place and maintains its strength, proper aftercare is essential.

It is recommended to brush and floss your teeth twice daily, as you would with your natural teeth. Flossing is especially important to keep plaque and bacteria from building up around the crown. Additionally, use a soft bristled toothbrush to avoid damaging the crown.

It is also important to have regular dental checkups and cleanings. During these visits, the dentist will be able to check for any signs of wear or damage to your crown.
