What are crowns?

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that protect damaged teeth and restore their shape, size, and color. If you have a severely decayed or fractured tooth, your dentist may recommend placing a crown.

These protective covers come in various materials, including porcelain, metal, gold, zirconia, and porcelain-fused-to-metal. After a comprehensive dental exam, including digital X-rays, your dentist can recommend the best material for your crown.

Why would I need crowns?

Crowns allow your dentist to protect and restore your teeth. Your dentist may recommend a dental crown to:

  • Restore and protect a fractured tooth
  • Protect a weakened tooth after root canal therapy
  • Secure a bridge in place
  • Connect to a dental implant
  • Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
  • Cover a tooth with a large filling

At Dently, your dentist can place a single crown or multiple restorations in one visit to restore the function and appearance of your teeth.

What is the process like for getting crowns?

Planning your individualized treatment and placing crowns typically requires two visits. During your first appointment, your dentist performs a comprehensive dental exam and dental cleaning. Then, they take digital X-rays to ensure you’re a good candidate for crowns.

To prepare your teeth for crowns, your dentist files, reshapes, and reduces the size of your teeth. This step prevents your crowns from appearing bulky or unnatural and ensures they blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. After preparing your teeth, your dentist takes digital impressions with the iTero® digital scanner.

Temporary crowns protect your teeth while you wait for your permanent restorations. After two to three weeks, you return to Dently so your dentist can place your permanent crowns. They make any necessary adjustments before cementing the crown in place.

How long do crowns last?

The lifespan of a crown depends on the material used and how well you care for it. To protect your crowns, your dentist may recommend:

  • Avoiding chewy, sticky, or tough foods
  • Wearing a night guard if you have bruxism
  • Brushing and flossing twice a day
  • Visiting your dentist for routine dental cleanings
  • Contacting your dentist if your crown cracks or loosens

To find out if you’re a good candidate for crowns, call the Dently office or schedule an appointment online today.
