What Is a Dental Crown?
Your natural teeth are made up of two distinct parts: the crown that you see above the gumline, and the roots hidden beneath it. Since teeth can’t repair themselves, leaving an injured or decayed crown untreated will only allow the problem to get worse. Thankfully, with a custom-made dental crown, we can protect the tooth. This restoration is a tooth-shaped cap that encapsulates the entire visible surface of a tooth, which strengthens the compromised structure, enhances its appearance, and prevents further damage. Dental crowns are often needed when:
- A tooth is cracked or broken
- A tooth is weakened by extensive decay or large filling
- A tooth is small, misshapen, or otherwise cosmetically imperfect
- A tooth has just been repaired with root canal therapy
- A tooth is being replaced with a dental implant
The Process of Getting a Dental Crown
Getting a dental crown typically takes about two appointments. First, we’ll make room for the new crown by removing a thin layer of enamel. We’ll roughen the surface of your tooth and take impressions, then we’ll fit you with a temporary crown. You’ll wear this temporary restoration for about two weeks while your permanent crown is being fabricated. Then, you’ll return to our office to have your temporary removed and your new, custom-made crown cemented into place. We’ll make sure that you’re satisfied with your results and that your bite is comfortable, and then you’ll be ready to go out and enjoy your newly repaired smile!
