Could your smile use a boost? Great teeth are within reach at the Vero Beach office of dentist Raymond A. Della. Here at our dental practice, Dr. Della can repair any cracks, chips, and fractures in your teeth with dental crowns, a procedure that restores your damaged tooth to full functionality and aesthetic appearance. Here's what to know about this treatment:

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a cap for a damaged, severely decayed, or misshapen tooth. Crafted from metal, resin, or ceramic, a crown covers up the blemished area of your tooth so that it can look natural and become sturdy and comfortable again.

What can a crown fix?

Crowns are a great option if you have a tooth with a cavity that is unable to hold a regular filling, a large chip or fissure, a protruding filling, extreme discoloration, or general wear-and-tear.

How does a crown improve my tooth?

A crown not only improves the appearance of your tooth, but restores your ability to eat, bite, and brush like normal.

What is the procedure like?

At our Vero Beach office, your dentist will first make sure that you are comfortable by numbing the tooth, and then properly prepare the tooth surface. Next, we will make an impression of your tooth and create a custom crown that is sized, colored, and shaped to match your natural teeth.

We will likely send you home with a temporary crown while your permanent crown is being made. When you return to our Vero Beach office, we will attach your final crown with a durable adhesive and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that it is comfortable and sturdy.

How do I care for a dental crown?

You will treat your crown just like a natural tooth—with regular brushing, flossing, and with exams/deep cleanings at our Vero Beach office. As with any dental work, you should take care when eating very hard or sticky foods, as they could damage your crown.

You have decided to improve your appearance through a smile makeover. But, you wonder, what cosmetic dentistry procedures are right for you? Dr. Raymond A. Della Porta, II will guide you through the evaluation and treatment process. His services in Vero Beach include everything from teeth whitening to porcelain veneers to dental implants. You'll arrive at the smile you've always wanted.

What makes a great smile?

Of course, oral health is paramount. That's Dr. Della Porta's primary mission as he provides comprehensive preventive and restorative services to care for your gums, teeth, dental bite, and the underlying bone and connective tissues.

Additionally, your dentist understands the personal, social and professional impact a great smile has. A healthy smile must be an attractive smile. Elements of tooth alignment, size, color and shape make up smile aesthetics which are as unique and personal as a signature or a fingerprint. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry states that a frank discussion of your smile--and your personal goals--helps you and your dentist agree upon the treatment plan perfect for you.
