A tooth that has been damaged or weakened from tooth decay can usually be restored with a dental crown. Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA offers dental crowns made from porcelain or zirconia to Naples, FL residents to help protect the visible part of a damaged tooth from getting worse while also restoring its normal shape and size. Dental crowns are custom-designed to blend with your natural teeth and are commonly used to treat teeth that are fractured, cracked, or oddly shaped. These dental restorations may also be merged into an appliance to function as a bridge or placed over individual dental implants to replace missing teeth. Set up a consultation with Dr. Junée F. Gardy to discover if a custom crown may improve your smile.

Naples, FL women and men may need a crown restoration to fix various dental health issues and restore biting function and aesthetic appeal to a tooth. Some of the most common reasons for needing a crown procedure are:

  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Enamel wear or erosion
  • Deeply stained or misshapen teeth
  • Moderate dental cavities
  • Teeth with large, failing fillings
  • Root canal-treated teeth
  • For the fabrication of a dental bridge
  • To finish an implant

At Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA, a crown can be used for the back and front teeth. It might be 100% ceramic or made of other materials, such as porcelain over a metal substrate or a high-noble metal (like gold). Our experienced dental team will look at your tooth and help you determine the right type of crown procedure for your needs and smile desires.

Dental crown procedures most often require two visits. During your first appointment, Dr. Gardy will anesthetize the treatment area and the damaged part of the tooth will be cleared away. Once the affected portion has been taken care of, an impression of the treated tooth will be taken and used by a professional dental lab to make your personalized restoration. A temporary restoration will be placed over the treated tooth to maintain normal oral function and a natural aesthetic appeal while your new crown is being constructed. You will visit Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA a few weeks afterward so you can have the temporary crown removed and the new restoration bonded to your tooth or implant post.

What Can I Expect After Getting a Dental Crown?

Immediately after your dental crown is placed, you may experienced some discomfort, tenderness, and sensitivity around the tooth and gums. Dr. Gardy may recommend that you adjust your diet for a few days to include soft, lukewarm foods and liquids while avoiding hard, crunchy, overly hot foods, and other items. Most patients are able to enjoy their normal diet and activities within a few days to a week after treatment, though this can vary somewhat based on individual patient and case factors. After you have recovered and adjusted to your new crown, you'll be able to care for it just as you would a natural tooth - with twice-daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing as directed. You'll also need to keep your regularly scheduled dental exams and in-office cleanings to help preserve your dental crown for as long as possible.

Dr. Gardy is the best dentist in Southwest Florida!!! Her work is amazing!!! My daughter broke her permanent teeth in first grade after being chased in the schoolyard by another student. She is now 26 and last month one of her veneers broke. I insisted she drive from Jacksonville to Naples, because I didn't want just anyone to work on her front teeth! Dr. Gardy did an amazing job! Her crowns look so natural!!! Thank you Dr. Gardy!!! No One will ever know she has crowns!

What's the Difference Between Dental Crowns and Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are purely cosmetic in nature and cover the front surface of the tooth only, while dental crowns are considered restorative and cover (or replace) the full tooth. To learn more about whether crowns vs. veneers will be most appropriate for you, simply call to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gardy.
