What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a customized “cap” that is made to fit over the bating surface of a damaged or weakened tooth. They can be made out of a variety of different materials, like gold, ceramic, and porcelain. This restoration is generally used for patients who have a:

  • Severely decayed tooth with a large filling
  • Broken tooth needing extra support
  • Tooth that has recently undergone root canal therapy
  • Missing tooth that has been replaced with a dental implant
  • Bridge that needs support from the adjacent teeth
  • Tooth that is misshapen or discolored.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

The dental crown procedure is pretty straightforward. This usually takes place over just a few appointments. First, we will examine your smile to make sure that a dental crown is the best option to keep your tooth in excellent shape. Next, your tooth will be prepared by removing a thin layer of your enamel to make room for the crown to fit comfortably. An impression is then taken of your tooth and the surrounding gumline. This will be sent to the dental laboratory where your custom crown will be crafted just for you. As soon as your new crown is ready, we will give you a call to come back to the practice. In the meantime, you will be given a temporary crown to keep your tooth out of harm’s way. Once your crown is placed, it can last 15 years or more with proper care.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown
