Even if you practice thorough dental care consistently, there are still times that tooth decay can occur. However, as long as you visit your dentist promptly, we can repair your smile with minimally invasive treatment. When tooth decay becomes severe, a dental crown may be needed to cover the tooth and restore your smile.


In order to place a dental crown, our dentist will remove the enamel and use the core of the tooth to form an abutment that allows us to create an anchor for your new dental crown. Then, an impression of the abutment and neighboring teeth is sent to technicians at a dental lab, who will custom make your permanent crown. We will provide a temporary crown in the meantime to keep your smile and abutment in good shape.

When you return to Creative Dental Group for the second visit, we remove the temporary crown and replace it with your permanent crown, which is cemented in place with a dental-grade adhesive.

Call our dentist and team at 508-990-9900 today if you have a large cavity and are interested in receiving a dental crown in New Bedford, Massachusetts. We would love to see you at Creative Dental Group, where we can provide the dental care you need! Dr. Purvesh Malaviya and Dr. Mrugank Sardhara are here to give your smile the quality care it deserves!
