Quality Dental Crowns and Bridges in Cary, NC
When a tooth is damaged or weakened, not only is it painful, but it can also make eating and drinking difficult. Dental crowns are a solution that strengthen and protect the remaining enamel. At Serene Smiles Dentistry in Cary, NC, we provide restorative dental services so you have a beautiful smile and enjoy all life has to offer.
Dr. Shah may recommend a crown repair in the following situations:
- Replacing an older metal or composite filling
- Improving the color of teeth that have yellowed
- Fortifying a dental implant or artificial tooth
- Strengthening a tooth after a root canal
- Restoring a broken tooth

- Saving a tooth that cannot support a filling
Repair and Strengthen Your Teeth
Dental crowns are caps that protect teeth from further damage. They can be made of stainless steel, metal, porcelain, ceramic and resin. Your dentist can discuss different options based on your health needs. Typically, this procedure will require at least two visits to the office. At the first appointment, the dentist performs an examination and prepares your mouth. The dentist will take impressions of your teeth so the laboratory that manufactures the crown can make sure it will fit your mouth. You may receive a temporary crown during the first visit. During the second visit, the permanent one is installed. The fit and color of it will be checked. A local anesthetic is used to numb your mouth while the new crown is cemented in place. We also provide tooth bridge restoration services, which helps keep your smile straight and beautiful.
