A dental crown or cap is a prosthetic shaped and colored like your tooth to improve its function and appearance. A crown is made to fit on top of the remaining decayed or damaged tooth. A dental crown should be hard to distinguish from the other teeth if well-designed and placed.
A dental crown may be small, but it has many uses. Besides strengthening damaged teeth, your dentist may recommend a dental crown to:
Dental crowns are typically placed in 2-3 dental appointments. The initial step is a consultation to determine whether a crown is the best treatment for your dental situation. If it is, we carefully numb your gums with local anesthesia and then remove a precise amount of enamel around your tooth. Next, we take imprints of your teeth to help our dental lab to create a restoration that fits snugly in your mouth.
Fabricating your crown requires 2-3 weeks. During this time, we’ll place a provisional crown to protect your prepped tooth. Once your crown is ready, you’ll book an appointment with Drs. Yerger or Stewart for placement. We’ll remove the temporary restoration and clean your tooth before trying your new crown. If your crown looks natural and fits perfectly, we’ll use dental cement to permanently bond it to your tooth.
If you have a dental crown, you’ll want to know how to care for it to maintain your beautiful smile. While a dental crown can last 15-plus years, you should take good care of it to ensure your investment remains strong and functional as long as possible.
Follow the steps below to keep your dental crown looking its best.
Your dentist can repair minor chips on your crown, but pronounced damage means a complete replacement, which is costly. So, the best way to get fantastic value for your crown is to maintain it diligently.
