Dental Crowns in
Jacksonville, Florida

A dental crown may be recommended if you need a large filling and there is not enough tooth remaining to make the procedure feasible. They can also be used to restore a fractured tooth, cover a tooth that has had a root canal treatment or used to attach a bridge. Atlantic Dentistry offers this general dentistry procedure to our patients.

Dental Crowns in Jacksonville, Florida

A crown can improve the shape or alignment of the damaged tooth and also strengthen the damaged tooth. A dental crown will cover the entire tooth. The materials used for a crown are metal, acrylic, and ceramic. Ceramic and porcelain crowns can be matched to the color of your teeth so it will look natural.

Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth

The procedure for a dental crown usually takes two visits. At the first visit, Dr. Murphy will prepare the tooth by filing the tooth down to make room for the crown. After the tooth is shaped, we use putty to make an impression of the tooth. This is done so the crown will fit perfectly. At the end of the first appointment, patients will leave with a temporary crown on their tooth.

After a few weeks, the permanent crown will be ready for placement on the tooth. At this appointment, the temporary crown is removed, and the dentist will apply cement and place the permanent crown in place. Dental crowns are a good choice for damaged teeth.

Dental Inlays and Onlays

When a patient has a damaged or cracked tooth, it may not always need a dental crown or dental cap. In this case, the dentist would recommend a dental inlay or onlay. These procedures will be used when an old filling needs to be replaced. When a patient receives a dental inlay, it is very similar to getting a filling. The inlay would be inside the tooth and reach up to the top edges. A dental onlay is similar, but it is a little more involved and will cover the cusp of the tooth.

I have extremely high dental anxiety, and Dr. Murphy and his hygienist were so calming and gentle on my sensitive teeth. Their offices are really clean and nice with TVs in each exam room. The X-rays were really easy with new equipment and everything was shown to me digitally on the screen. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a new dentist in the area! I’m glad I came in!
