Your New Smile Faster in Southport!
Maybe you have missing or damaged teeth and have considered tooth replacement in Southport, IN. Perhaps, you don’t have time to come in for repeat fittings and settings, however, and have been putting it off.
At Shank Dentistry, we can help you with that. We can restore your smile without interruptions to your schedule because our restorative dentist in Southport creates your dental crown or bridge right here in our dental office!
While some dental offices offer on-site crowns using a milling machine and software, our restorative dentist in Southport has taken this technology several steps further. Dr. Shank has his own lab on-site—not a milling machine, but a state-of-the-art dental lab designed to save you time and expense by cutting out the middleman.
Dr. Shank also oversees your restoration to make sure it fits right the first time, making all adjustments the same day.
What Are Tooth Crowns?
Tooth crowns are covers that go over your tooth or over a dental implant post and abutment. They are shaped to blend in with surrounding teeth and always colored to match your smile.
How Tooth Crowns Are Used
We recommend tooth crowns to strengthen a tooth weakened by trauma or a complicated root infection.
A dental crown also conceals tooth flaws, including discoloration, minor fractures, and shape abnormalities.
If you have a dental bridge, dental crowns secure that bridge to adjacent teeth with dental crowns.
Finally, a dental crown fits over a post and abutment to complete your dental implant placement.
Tooth crowns serve many purposes in modern dentistry, which is why we offer them on-site instead of sending specifications to other laboratories and making our patients wait.
Additionally, we take digital impressions to create your tooth crowns and restorations. This means no messy pastes.
