What are Dental Crowns?

Before you make a decision regarding dental crowns, its best to have an understanding of the process. Before you begin with your crowns, you will have a consultation with your dentist. Here, you will speak with your dentist to determine if this is the best for your oral care.

The process begins with your dentist using a color chart to determine which color will best match the rest of your teeth. This helps create a more natural appearance once we place the crown. Then, they shape the tooth to create space for the new dental crowns. If cavities are present, we remove them. If a space is left from a root canal, we use a permanent material to fill the space. To make an impression of the teeth, you will bite down on a substance similar to clay.

A lab will use the mold to create dental crowns that fit your teeth perfectly. A temporary crown allows you to function before the permanent crowns are complete. A cement allows the dentist to attach the crown. After placement, they will check your bite and jaw movement.

Types of Dental Crowns

  • Porcelain Crowns: Manufactured of ceramic materials, porcelain crowns are made to match the shade of your natural teeth. They are a well-liked solution for front tooth restoration.

  • Ceramic Crowns: Ceramic crowns are similar to porcelain crowns and are also designed to match the color of your natural teeth.

  • Metal Crowns: Strong and long-lasting options for reconstructing back teeth, metal crowns are constructed of materials like gold or other metals.


Aftercare for Dental Crowns

  • For the first few days following the procedure, stay away from meals that are hard, crunchy, or sticky.

  • To maintain healthy gums and neighboring teeth, practice good dental hygiene, which includes routine brushing and flossing.

  • Arrange routine dental exams to keep track of the condition of your crown and make sure it is working properly.

Do not let a broken or rotting tooth affect your confidence or dental health. Consult your dentist right away to learn more about dental crowns and how they can help you strengthen and improve the look of your smile. A dental crown can help you preserve a healthy, attractive smile for many years with proper maintenance.
