What Are Crowns?
A dental crown is a prosthetic tooth that looks and feels like your natural teeth. They are custom-made restorations that cover and protect an existing tooth. They can fit over any tooth, from molars to incisors, and are a quality solution to a number of dental problems, including:
- After Root Canal Therapy: A dental crown is often used to cover and protect the remaining tooth structure, restoring the tooth's strength, health, and beauty.
- A Mishappen Tooth: If you have a tooth that is too small, then a crown is placed to provide the missing surface area to create an even bite pattern.
- Large Cavities: If decay has compromised the integrity of your tooth, then a crown is used to cover and strengthen the tooth, restoring its integrity.
- A Broken Tooth: Should an accident lead to dental trauma and a broken or chipped tooth, then a crown may be placed to restore the natural size, shape, and function of your tooth.
Zirconia and Porcelain Crowns
Our office offers two material options for your crown: zirconia and porcelain. Our team works with you to determine the right option for you and your smile goals. We want you to be proud of your smile and make sure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.
Zirconia: If you decide to select zirconia as the material for your dental crown, you will enjoy a number of benefits, including its extremely durable nature. This is particularly beneficial for crowns created for molars, where the main force of your bite is concentrated. Zirconia crowns last for many years and are also highly stain resistant.
Porcelain: Our other option you can select for your dental crown material is porcelain. This material brings many benefits, especially concerning the lifespan of your restoration. Porcelain crowns are also very durable and will provide a strong and reliable cover for your compromised tooth, usually lasting for 10-15 years with proper care. We also ensure your new crown is matched as closely as possible in color to your other teeth.
Dental Crown FAQs
Our friendly dentist and team understands that you will want to know as much as possible about your treatment plan so you can make the best decision. This is why we encourage you to share your concerns and ask questions, and we are happy to provide the answers and information you need. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental crowns:
Placing a dental crown involves our dentist gently shaping your tooth, so the dental crown fits securely in place and then cementing the crown onto the tooth. The entire procedure can be accomplished in two visits, and the dental cement usually cures in half an hour.
Dental crowns are easy to care for since they cover and protect an existing tooth. To clean your custom crown, you will simply brush and floss it as you do for your natural teeth. It is important that you do not use your crown to open bottles or cans because this may damage the crown. You will also need to maintain your biannual dental visits so our dentist can verify the crown's integrity.
While the procedure to shape your preexisting tooth may cause discomfort, your actual crown will not hurt. We carefully design your crown to fit comfortably and blend seamlessly with your smile. It is common with daily use for you to forget you have a crown at all.
