Dental crowns are a common restorative treatment and are most frequently recommended to restore damaged or decayed teeth. Also known as dental caps, they are specially designed to fit your teeth perfectly, covering the entire visible portion of each tooth to restore their shape, size, strength and appearance. Crowns also protect the teeth from sustaining any additional damage.
Crowns may be provided for a number of reasons, including:
- The tooth is severely damaged or decayed.
- A large filling has weakened the tooth.
- The crown will anchor a dental bridge.
- The crown will cover a dental implant.
- The tooth has received a root canal.
In most cases, a dental crown will require two appointments to complete. At the first appointment, our dentist will prepare your tooth, take an impression and place a temporary crown. After the final crown has been fabricated, you will return for the second appointment, and our dentist will check that the crown fits properly before bonding it into place. Crowns may be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal or a combination of these materials.
When properly cared for, a dental crown will last many years. Caring for your crown includes regular brushing and flossing at home as well as visiting our dentist for routine preventive care, such as cleanings and exams.
