Crowns Q & A

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are prosthetics that restore teeth to their original shape, strength, and functionality. Common reasons for crown placement include replacing a broken or damaged tooth, covering a discolored tooth, or protecting a tooth following a root canal. In cases where a deep cavity cannot be filled with a standard filling, a crown may also be necessary.

What types of dental crowns are available?

The type of crown used depends on the material utilized. Options include:

  • Metal alloys: composed of highly corrosion-resistant metals
  • Gold alloys: strong crowns made from gold and other crack-resistant metals
  • Ceramic: closely resembling natural teeth, often used for front teeth
  • Porcelain fused to metal: combining porcelain and metal for durability and aesthetics

Our team collaborates with patients to determine the most suitable crown type. Many individuals prefer ceramic or porcelain crowns for their natural appearance and durability.

How are dental crowns placed?

The process of crown placement typically involves multiple visits to our office. Following an initial consultation to assess candidacy for a crown, the tooth is prepared by filing to the appropriate size. In cases where the tooth lacks sufficient structure, a post may be inserted to support the crown.

A mold of the prepared tooth is then taken to create the permanent crown, with a temporary crown applied for interim protection. During the subsequent visit, the temporary crown is replaced with the permanent one using dental adhesive.

What is the aftercare for dental crowns?

While it may take some time to adjust to the new crown and bite, discomfort should be minimal after placement. Maintaining proper oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly is crucial for the longevity of the crown. Additionally, attending scheduled follow-up appointments allows our team to monitor the crown’s condition and overall oral health.
