Much of our confidence is tied up in the appearance of our smile. A simple fix or a full smile makeover might just change your life. Are you ready?
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A Crowns Caps Norman OK protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, ceramic (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Ceramic crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile. At Brammer Dental we provide four main types of crowns: all ceramic emax, all ceramic zirconia, porcelian fused to metal and gold crowns.

What does getting a crown involve?
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking a highly accurate mold (or impression) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.
While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.
At your second appointment your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.
You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
