Dental Crown

Dental crowns are one of the most versatile tools for addressing issues with your teeth. In many cases, they can prevent tooth loss for cracked or damaged teeth, and support teeth after large fillings or root canal therapy. Crowns can also be used for replacing missing teeth with dental implants, or for cosmetic reasons, such as deep staining or crooked and misshapen teeth.

Dental crowns are like a cap for your tooth, and they cover the entire visible portion. In order to place a dental crown, the dentist will have to remove the outer layer of tooth enamel and shape it for a good fit. Once your tooth is prepped, we will take impressions of your mouth to send to the dental lab. Your dentist will place a temporary crown in the meantime, and once your restoration is ready, you will return to the office to get the permanent crown bonded into place.

Dental Bridges

A bridge can replace missing teeth, either by anchoring on to neighboring teeth with dental crowns, or through the support of a dental implant. Missing teeth add extra pressure on your jaw, and without treatment, you risk tooth fractures and shifting teeth in your mouth. With proper care, dental bridges can last for over 15 years, and placing them will help you relieve tension and prevent dental shifting.

Your dentist will work with you to decide the best method to replace your missing teeth, and help you form a treatment plan that will restore your teeth. For traditional bridges, your dentist may need to prepare neighboring teeth with dental crowns to prevent complications. If you need implants, the implant site will need some time to heal before your dentist can take impressions to craft your bridge.

Advantages of Crowns and Bridges

Functional Protection

A dental crown is possibly the best protection that your dentist can give to ta threatened tooth. Teeth wakened by root canal treatment are also protected with crowns.

Esthetics

Along with the physical protection, a crown also offers an esthetic advantage. Crowns can be made to restore the original shape of your tooth. Ceramic crowns are strong and yet very good looking.

Durability

Crowns last the longest of most dental restoration with a life fifteen years or more. This is because dental crowns are prepared from high quality and stronger materials.

I went in yesterday due to cavity pain on one of my molars, I was very scared due to Covid-19 and just going to the dentist in general but knew the pain was only going to get worse if I didn't take care of it soon. I ended up needing a temporary crown and will be back in 2 weeks for my permanent crown and some other work. From start to finish everyone in the office made me feel very relaxed, welcomed, and safe. They seem to be taking every precaution for Covid-19 and included a symptom questionnaire before the visit as well as a temperature check prior to being checked in for the appointment. Doctor wore a mask the whole time as well as directed me on when to take mine off and on for his safety. The office was very clean and without dental insurance they clearly laid out my payment options. I'm glad I chose their office during this time and look forward to getting my dental health on track.

Visited due to my dentist not being open after 2pm(???...) so had an emergency and called them up. They took me in within 30 minutes of calling and started the process for a root canal. Came the next day and got second of 3 phases done. One thing, they are open late. Second, the staff is extremely nice and helpful as well as understanding with insurance concerns. The Dr. and assistant were very courteous to my pain needs and did everything they could to alleviate any pain. This is not some scam in an out place. They do take their time. They give you a shot then let you sit and watch tv for a little while to let it come on. So this is not exactly the fastest dentist you will go to if you have work needs. But they are absolutely thorough. They are gentle and caring. I recommend 100%. We all fear the dentist but this is a place that I don't feel judged, they care for my pain, and have a definite plan to get me on the right path.

I was SO incredibly nervous about having a root canal done because I always really struggle to stay numb during dental procedures. I am such a baby that I am more scared of tooth procedures than I am of actual surgery... I talked to the docs at Wicker Park Dental and they worked with me to make sure I was comfortable the entire time, and they really made sure I was at ease. I had less pain with this root canal than I've had in the past with even small cavities, and I'm so thankful that they listened to my concerns and helped get me taken care of! Everyone inside was incredibly nice, they checked on me constantly and adjusted any time I needed anything, and the office is clean and beautiful. Highly, highly recommend!
