What Is a Dental Crown?
This restoration is also referred to as a “dental cap,” which is designed to completely cover the top side of a compromised tooth to both improve its look and strengthen its structure. Our office typically makes these caps with high-quality porcelain as this material can easily match the rest of your natural pearly whites. The best part: you likely won’t even be able to notice the difference between the crown and your other teeth. This treatment is mostly reserved for patients who have:
- A broken tooth
- Severely decayed teeth
- A misshapen or heavily stained teeth
- A bridge that needs to be supported
- A tooth that’s just undergone root canal therapy
The Dental Crown Process
We’ll always begin your dental crown process by performing an initial consultation where we’ll assess your tooth and determine if this treatment is right for you. If so, we can start the procedure by preparing your compromised tooth, which typically involves shaving down a small portion of your enamel to make room for the porcelain cap. Our team will then take impressions of the area to be used for fabricating the restoration.
This process will take a few weeks, so we’ll also provide you with a temporary crown to protect your natural tooth. Once your final crown is completed, you’ll return to our office to switch the provisional one out with the permanent one. We’ll make any minor adjustments if necessary to ensure your bite is correct and that you’re satisfied with the results. You’ll be given instructions on how to care for your crown and then sent on your way to enjoy your healthy smile!
