What Is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns

A dental crown is a cap designed to be worn by a tooth that has been damaged by injury or decay or was misshapen to begin with. These caps are designed to mimic the color, luster, texture, and structure of real teeth, allowing them to seamlessly fit in with the rest of your smile. They’re also quite strong, ensuring that you can chew with them normally.

Almost anyone can be an excellent candidate for dental crowns after a brief consultation at our office. Dental crowns are frequently used to reinforce teeth that are chipped, cracked, decayed, or misshapen. They can also be used to anchor restorations like dental bridges in place or to restore teeth that have been treated with root canals.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

Dental crowns are usually placed over two appointments. During your consultation, we’ll ensure that you understand what to expect during these visits as well as determine whether ceramic or porcelain is the right material for your crown. Generally speaking, porcelain crowns are more durable while ceramic crowns have a more natural appearance.

During your first appointment, our dentist will begin by using a local anesthetic to render the process painless. They will then reshape your tooth to make room for the crown before taking impressions of it. You will then receive a temporary crown so you can get used to wearing it, and the impressions will be sent to a lab where your permanent cap will be manufactured.

Once we receive your crown a few weeks later, you’ll come back to have it placed. We’ll remove the temporary crown and cement the permanent one to your tooth. After our dentist checks how it fits and makes any final adjustments, you’ll be free to enjoy your restored smile.

Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown

A dental crown can play a massive part in keeping a troubled tooth healthy and can prevent further infections or injuries. A few key benefits of dental crowns include:

  • Comfortable restorations that allow you to chew normally
  • Protecting your natural teeth to prevent injuries that may require extraction
  • Crowns are versatile treatments that can address several oral health problems at once
  • High-quality materials ensure that your crown will match the rest of your smile, making it highly unlikely that anyone else will notice them.

Caring for your dental crown will require you to brush and floss regularly while taking care to clean around the base of the crown. If you can keep your crown clean, be mindful when chewing, and show up for regular dental appointments, your crown may last for more than fifteen years.
