What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a custom-made, tooth-shaped covering that is designed to restore an affected tooth. Traditionally, they are made of gold or metal alloys. However, patients today can choose from tooth-colored alternatives (like porcelain/ceramic) that effectively restore the damaged tooth without calling attention to the treatment.
What Can Dental Crowns Fix?
Placing a dental crown is one of the most common and straight-forward treatments. Not only are they durable and life-like, but they can also be used to:
- Restore a broken tooth.
- Fix weak or worn-down teeth due to teeth grinding.
- Rebuild severely decayed teeth.
- Replace a missing tooth that is supported by a dental implant.
- Make aesthetic improvements to cracked or chipped teeth.
How Are Dental Crowns Placed?
After conducting a dental exam and reaching a diagnosis, your dentist will begin the process of placing the dental crown. First, the affected tooth will be prepped by being cleaned and reshaped. From there, an impression is made of the tooth and a temporary crown is placed while the permanent one is crafted in a lab. Once the custom crown is complete, we will use a special bonding agent to ensure that it stays in place for years to come!
How Do You Care for a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns can last for over two decades with proper care and maintenance. Priority number one is to consistently brush and floss your teeth, especially near the base of the crown where plaque can collect. Also, attending your bi-yearly checkups and cleanings are crucial. Not only will this ensure that any small dental concerns are treated right away, but it will also guarantee your dental crown is in tip-top shape!
