Dental Crowns in Apex and Cary NC

Preserving natural teeth is of high importance in dental medicine. A dentist does everything possible to repair a damaged tooth and protect it when it is in danger. There are several oral health benefits from restoring lost tooth. Among all the restorations in prosthodontics, dental crowns are widely used because of their functional advantages. Dental crowns aid patients to a great extent in biting and chewing functions. They protect natural tooth from infection and damage.

Dental crowns are one of our prime offerings at our Apex office. Our crowns have worked very well for many of our patients of Apex, Cary and surrounding cities who come to us with severely damaged/decayed tooth.

Teeth Restoration – Importance

A decayed/damaged tooth can ruin oral health by spreading infection and leading to tooth loss. Dentists take quick steps to intervene and stop tooth decay when it is detected in early stages. In cases where the decay has managed to destroy the pulp, the dentist performs root canal procedure and removes the infection. A dental crown is required to protect the weak tooth after the treatment. The dental crown provides functional support to the natural tooth. It acts as a protective cap and ensures that the tooth is not damaged further.

Dental crowns may also be recommended when the teeth are broken into pieces. The dentist aims to protect the natural tooth from the danger of falling out.

Dental Crowns Restoration Procedure

Dental crowns are made of porcelain, metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal. Two visits are required to fix a dental crown over damaged tooth. The dentist firstly removes some portion of the enamel layer of natural tooth in order to make space for placement of crown. This is done using numbing agent. Impressions of teeth are taken and a temporary crown is prepared in the office. This crown will cap the natural tooth until the next visit. The dentist removes the temporary crown and cements the permanent one in place after checking the fit during the following visit.

Are you suffering from tooth decay or have a damaged tooth? Make an appointment and meet our dentist to learn more about teeth restorations and dental crowns. Our comprehensive oral care in Apex can help improve your health.

In our patient's words

Of course no one likes to go to the dentist to have a filling or any other work done, but Dr. Chirnalli is absolutely one of the best! I have had several visits and each experience was so much better than any other dentist. A big plus for me is that he is very gentle (unlike most dentist, where you feel like you have been punched in the jaw!). I can barely feel when he gives me a shot of Novocain. I would recommend Dr. Chirnalli to anyone! Thanks for making my smile even better!" Ryan Clontz

Dr.Chirnall and the team in Apex Smiles are fantastic. I have been going to Apex smiles for 3 years and delighted with their service. It is a great friendly place and the staff at there are wonderful and they put you at ease. I chose Dr. Chirnalli based on the recommendation of my friends and very happy with the results. I had couple of crowns and fillings done and the whole process was painless and the work is excellent. Dr. Chirnalli explained very well the procedures and the costs involved which was very reasonable. I would recommend Apex Smiles without any reservation for any dental work you need." Vijay Kumar

My family has been visiting Apex Smiles of Dr. Vinay Chirnalli, for our regular dental clean-up and other check-ups. Dr. Chirnalli's knowledgeable services are really fantastic. While all employees are very good in his office, I specifically like one of his specialists: Allison - who is taking care of my dental needs carefully and professionally on a regular basis for nearly 3 years. Keep up the good work filled with a pleasant experience, and we look forward to more years of quality care at Apex Smiles." Prasad Kommaraju
