What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are customized “caps” that are made to fit over the biting surface of your damage or
weakened tooth. This restoration can be made from a variety of different materials, including gold, ceramic, and
porcelain. Dental crowns are generally recommended for patients who have one of the following issues:
- Broken tooth in need of additional support
- Missing tooth being replaced by a dental implant
- Tooth that’s severely misshapen or discolored
- Dental bridge that needs support from adjacent teeth
- Tooth that’s undergone root canal therapy
- Severe decay repaired with a large filling
The Process of Getting a Dental Crown
The procedure for getting a dental crown is pretty straightforward. It generally takes place over a few appointments. First, we will take a look at your smile to ensure that a dental crown is the best option to protect your tooth. Next, a thin layer of enamel is removed to make room for the crown to fit comfortably. An impression is taken of your tooth and surrounding gumline. This is sent to the dental laboratory where your custom crown is crafted. Once it’s ready, we will let you know so you can return to the practice. In the meantime, you will be given a temporary crown to keep your tooth safe. Once your crown is placed, it can last up to 15 years or longer.
