Dental Crowns

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom-made caps placed over damaged or decayed teeth to restore their shape, size, strength and appearance. They cover the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gum line and can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal or a combination of these materials.

When Are Dental Crowns Necessary?

Dental crowns are necessary in several situations, such as:

Protecting a Weak Tooth

Dental crowns are often used to protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold parts of a cracked tooth together. This is especially common when the tooth has been weakened by decay or a large filling.

Restoring a Badly Decayed Tooth

When a tooth has severe decay, a dental crown may be necessary to restore its shape, appearance and functionality.

After a Root Canal

Root canal-treated teeth can become brittle and weak because the nerve no longer provides nourishment. A crown is often necessary to protect the integrity of the tooth.

Cracked or Broken Teeth

A dental crown is usually required if a tooth is cracked or broken. Unlike a broken bone, the fracture in a cracked tooth will not heal, and it could lead to nerve damage or tooth loss if left untreated.

Large Worn-Out or Damaged Filling

Crowns become inevitable when a filling makes up 50% of a tooth or more. Fillings of this size can leave the tooth weakened and susceptible to further damage.

Aesthetic Purposes

Apart from restorative purposes, crowns are also used for cosmetic reasons. They can cover discolored or misshapen teeth to improve a person's smile.

Types of Dental Crowns

There are various types of crowns we can use, depending on your needs and preferences, including:

Dental Crowns

Zirconia

Zirconia crowns are smooth, natural looking, and biocompatible, making them an ideal choice for those looking for metal-free crowns or holistic dental crowns.

Dental Crowns

Metal

Metal crowns are incredibly durable and can withstand the forces of biting and chewing. They are usually made from gold, palladium or base metal alloys and are often used for molars that are not visible when smiling.

Dental Crowns

Porcelain

Porcelain crowns are the most aesthetically pleasing option, as they can be color-matched to your natural teeth. They are also strong and durable, making them suitable for both front and back teeth.

Dental Crowns

Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal (PFM)

PFM crowns combine the strength of metal with the natural-looking appearance of porcelain. They are often used for front teeth as they can be color-matched to blend seamlessly with natural teeth.

The Dental Crown Procedure

Getting a dental crown typically requires two visits to our office. 

1.

Initial Consultation

Dental crowns are often used to protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold parts of a cracked tooth together. This is especially common when the tooth has been weakened by decay or a large filling.

2.

Scan or Impression

Once the tooth is prepared, we will take a digital scan or impression of your teeth to create a custom-made crown that fits perfectly in your mouth.

3.

Temporary Crown

While your permanent crown is being made, we will provide a temporary crown to protect the prepared tooth.

4.

Final Fitting

During your second visit, the temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent crown will be placed and adjusted for proper fit and bite. If everything looks good, we will then cement it in place.
