Dental crowns are bonded to an existing tooth to help restore oral health and to help improve the appearance of your smile. At O2 Dental Group of Wilmington, we often recommend a dental crown from our Wilmington, NC dentist office to patients whose teeth don’t have enough healthy enamel to support a filling or to top off a dental implant.

At O2 Dental Group, we offer same-day dental crowns with advanced CEREC technology. Our lab quality restorations are made right here at our dental practice, so you don’t have to spend two weeks waiting for a new dental crown or dental bridge to be sent to our office from an off-site facility.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A dental crown can help recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
The crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down to the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile.
Our Wilmington dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth that has been weakened from decay from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a crown is placed, most patients are able to enjoy chewing without pain and can smile with confidence.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years depending on the wear and tear and on whether a patient takes care of the crown with regular brushing and flossing. A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups at O2 Dental Group of Wilmington are important!
