Dr. Tracey Hughes is a general dentist in the Lafayette, CO area who will restore a structurally unsound tooth with a dental crown. A dental crown, or ‘tooth cap’, can be used as a restorative or cosmetic dentistry treatment. Whether you need to replace an existing restoration or have a tooth that needs a crown, she can create a custom tooth crown that looks and feels like your natural teeth. A dental crown can be used to address:
Traditionally, a dental crown needed to have a metal foundation. These left patients with dark lines around their dental crowns. Dr. Hughes uses high quality ceramic and zirconia crowns that are both durable and aesthetically pleasing. Dr. Hughes will replace your metal dental crown, broken or worn dental crown with a new dental crown that will blend beautifully with the existing tooth and surrounding gum for a virtually undetectable restoration.

Dental Crown What to Expect
Dr. Hughes will examine your teeth and overall dental health at your scheduled consultation. This exam will help her to design a personalized treatment plan that will restore the tooth to optimal health and function. Dr. Hughes focuses on the pre-treatment planning to ensure that the results will be predictable and successful.
To start, Dr. Hughes will remove any existing dental crowns or fillings. She will then prepare the tooth/teeth by removing a small amount of the natural tooth structure to accommodate the dental crown. A temporary tooth cap will be placed on the tooth while the final restoration is being fabricated.
Once the new dental crown is ready, you will return to our Lafayette, CO dentist office where Dr. Hughes will permanently secure it to your tooth. She will make necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable bite and polish the restoration for a natural luster that will enhance your smile.
With routine dental care and good daily oral hygiene, your new dental crown will last for many years.
