Dr. James White offers treatment with dental crowns in Las Vegas, NV. This restorative solution can cover broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. Additionally, if you have discolored or worn teeth, you can benefit from dental crowns. Also known as dental caps, dental crowns cover teeth and dental restorations. Dr. White works with a master ceramist to ensure that dental crowns are strong and match the color of your existing teeth for a natural look.
During treatment, Dr. White will prepare the tooth receiving the crown by removing a bit of the tooth structure. This preparation ensures that the dental crown will fit securely onto the tooth. He will take dental impressions of teeth that will be sent to the ceramist. After the ceramist completes the crown, Dr. White will fit it onto the implant or tooth.

How long do dental crowns last?

Am I a candidate for dental crowns?
Broken teeth that still have the tooth root intact can receive dental crowns. Restorative treatment like dental implants, dentures, or dental bridges can be covered and protected with dental crowns. Patients with tooth decay or gum disease can receive dental crowns after infection is removed.
Is it painful to receive dental crowns?
Dr. White uses local anesthetic to numb the tooth that is receiving the dental crown, so the procedure shouldn’t be painful. You may feel some soreness after the procedure, but this will pass.
Can dental crowns fall out?
