If your smile is missing a tooth and you are feeling shy to smile because of the gap, we can help! With the aid of a dental crown restoration, you can feel confident again to smile. In fact, our Eby Family Dental team will make your smile look as good as new in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin with a dental crown!

Commonly known as crowns or caps, dental crowns can restore a tooth’s function when the natural tooth is lost. Dr. Stacey Eby can replace the tooth, whether from injury to the mouth from sports, accidental trauma or a tooth infection.

Custom-crafted to fit over an implant, the new tooth will be strong and aesthetically pleasing once again. Crowns are good for cosmetic restoration as well, as they can enhance a discolored or unsightly tooth to make it look natural again. Crowns are often crafted from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or even gold. Your crown will be made from the material best suited to your needs.

Once your crown is in place, you will want to ensure the following:

–Avoid hard foods such as ice or hard candy.

–Avoid using your teeth as tools.

–Avoid biting your fingernails.

–Avoid clenching and grinding your teeth (known as bruxism). Speak to your dentist if you grind and clench your teeth constantly at it can harm your crown.

–Prevent tooth decay and gum disease by brushing at least twice a day.

–Floss at least once a day, using interdental brushes, sticks, or dental floss around the crown, especially where the gum meets the tooth.

–Maintain regularly scheduled dental cleanings to keep tartar away from your smile.
