A crown, also called a “cap” is a restoration that covers a tooth to bring it back to its normal shape and size. Crowns are necessary when a tooth is so broken down that fillings are not enough fix the problem. Crowns enhance and improve the appearance of a tooth; they are also used to restore cracked or broken teeth. Crowns cover the entire area of tooth that is visible above the gum line.

Dr. Phillip Greer will create a crown for you that will look and feel just like, if not better than, your natural tooth before! Here at Sweet Water Dentistry, we prepare the tooth, scan impressions with our high tech, up to date cerac machine, create crowns IN HOUSE and then cement crowns all in the same day!
With good oral hygiene and supervision, most crowns will last for a long period of time. To prevent damaging the crown, avoid chewing hard foods, ice or other hard objects, and also grinding your teeth. On top of visiting your dentist regularly and brushing your teeth twice a day, cleaning between your teeth is extremely important. Flossing is needed to remove plaque from around the crown. Plaque in that area can cause decay as well as gum disease.
Here at Sweet Water Dentistry in Fairhope, AL, Dr. Phillip Greer wants all of his patients to be completely informed and comfortable with dental crowns.
