Dental crowns are used to cover teeth that are damaged, cracked, chipped, or otherwise unable to support the pressures of your bite. Dr. Polly Reese may also recommend a crown after a root canal, as the tooth can become brittle. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over your existing tooth. To accommodate a crown, your enamel must be completely reshaped, as the cap fully covers the portion of your tooth above the gumline. Once the tooth is reshaped, an impression is made to fabricate the crown. Most crown procedures require at least two appointments. At Winning Smile Dental Group, we offer CEREC crowns to qualifying patients. CEREC crowns can be made in office, during a single appointment. This can save you significant time and money!

For patients who have lost all or most of their teeth, Winning Smile Dental Group offers several denture solutions. Dentures consist of prosthetic teeth set in an acrylic base. Dentures designed for the upper arch also cover the palate. Dentures designed for the lower arch are usually horseshoe shaped to accommodate the tongue. If you are missing all or most of your teeth, dentures can restore your ability to chew and bite properly, as well as your smile and facial appearance. Read More About Dentures
