Fix That Damaged Tooth Today!
What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns, also called caps, cover or cap a damaged tooth. Crowns can also be used to replace lost teeth or to repair broken teeth. Unlike an overlay or partial crown, a dental crown encases the entire tooth, restoring its strength and function.
Dental crowns are custom-made to fit perfectly over or in place of your tooth and will blend in beautifully with your surrounding teeth so no one will be able to tell the difference. Crowns are often used to repair damaged or cracked teeth, replace missing teeth, and cover a tooth with a root canal treatment. Dr. Sheth can also install dental crowns for cosmetic purposes to restore the appearance of a tooth that has become discolored or greyed out due to oral trauma.
Dental crowns are made from various materials, including gold, metal alloy, porcelain, and zirconia. Porcelain and zirconia crowns are the most popular option for front-facing teeth as they look the most natural. Zirconia crowns have the strongest construction of the two. Our dentist can help determine which material is best for your dental crown treatment.
What Should I Expect During My Dental Crown Procedure?
Installing a crown typically requires at least two appointments. The first appointment will make sure that the crown will fit and that the teeth and gums are healthy enough to support it.
Our staff will take X-rays to determine if your gums are healthy enough to hold the new dental crown. The dentist will file down the affected tooth so that it can receive a crown covering. Finally, we will also take impressions of the area for the manufacture of your crown. Dr. Sheth will fit you with a temporary crown in the meantime until your permanent crown is ready to be applied. Because we have an in-house dental lab, we can get your final crown placed very quickly.
How Do I Care For My Crown?
One of the best things about crowns and bridges is that they don’t require any changes to your daily oral hygiene. You should continue to brush twice a day, floss, and have dental check-ups every six months to maintain the function and beauty of your dental crown. Dental crowns can last for up to 15 years if well maintained and cared for.
