There are many reasons that your tooth may experience damage or decay over time, but there’s no reason you should continue to let damage happen. Crowns and bridges can help protect damaged teeth and replace missing teeth and give you the complete and healthy smile that you deserve. Dr. Daniel Morrison at Gillette Dental PC in Gillette, WY, can help explain how crowns and bridges can help your smile and if they would benefit you.
How Crowns And Bridges Can Help Your Smile
There are many factors that can cause damage to your teeth and it’s important to contact your dentist in Gillette, WY, to help protect your teeth from any further damage and to restore any function that may have been lost from the decay. Dental crowns can be made of metal, gold, or porcelain. For the most natural look, porcelain is recommended as it can blend in with the rest of your teeth and can be color-matched to the shade of your smile.
Dental crowns completely cover the tooth all the way to the gums and are the right choice if you’ve lost a significant amount of the tooth to damage and decay. Crowns can also help with the shape of a tooth and can look and feel exactly the way you want it to.
When used together, crowns and bridges can help replace multiple teeth and can help complete your smile. This is extremely helpful when you’re missing more than one tooth and you aren’t sure which restoration would be best for you.

If less than perfect teeth are keeping you from showing the world your smile, its time to talk to your dentist, Dr. Daniel Morrison, at Gillette Dental PC in Gillette, WY. With the help of dental crowns, we can restore your chipped, cracked or decayed teeth and have you grinning with confidence. Here's what to know about the benefits of dental crowns:
What is a crown made of?
The dental crowns offered by our Gillette, WY, dentist are made of porcelain, cast gold, or a porcelain-metal combination. Formed into the shape of a cap, the crown fits snugly over your tooth to conceal and encase any blemished or decayed areas. We will shape your crown to look like your natural tooth, and it will be fully functional.
What can a crown fix?
- A cracked, chipped, or worn down tooth
- A cavity which can't be properly filled
- Cosmetic damage from a root canal
- A damaged or misshapen tooth
- A severely discolored tooth
- A large filling that protrudes
What are the benefits of crowns?
- More attractive and natural looking teeth
- Stronger, more functional teeth
- Easier chewing, biting, flossing, and brushing
- Increased strength of your dental structure
How is a dental crown affixed?
The providers at our Gillette, WY, office will numb your tooth and gum area to reduce any pain you may feel during the procedure before using a dental drill to lightly buff the surface of your tooth so the dental crown can adhere strongly. We will make an impression of your tooth, either digitally or with a putty like material, and use the mold to create a crown that fits and matches your tooth. We will apply a temporary crown for you to wear until you return to our Gillette, WY office to have your permanent crown placed. To make sure the crown is permanent and secure, we will use either a resin material, cured under a special light, or a cement material.
Dental crowns can give you the smile you've always wanted. Call our Gillette, WY office at (307) 682-3353 to learn more!
