Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?

 
  • Dental crowns can be used to treat a range of concerns, including:
  • Supporting a tooth after a root canal
  • Repairing a decayed or damaged tooth
  • A final restoration for a dental implant
  • Changing the appearance of a tooth for a smile makeover

How Do Dental Crowns Work?

Crowns strengthen and support even the most worn down or broken teeth so well because they encase the entire visible part of a tooth, firmly attached to your own tooth beneath. This means the tooth’s own roots anchor the crown, and the beautiful porcelain crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface.

The application of a crown is usually completed in two easy visits. At the first visit, we prepare your tooth, remove any decay, and get your tooth ready to receive the crown. We will take impressions and place a temporary crown to protect your tooth until the permanent crown is completed. At your second visit, your beautiful crown will be bonded in place.

You’ll leave with a tooth that feels so natural and looks much like your own; you may even forget which tooth has been repaired! 

Types of Dental Crowns

There are four common types of dental crowns:

Ceramic

This type of crown is often used for teeth that are visible when smiling, and they are made from a porcelain-based material that retains the look of your natural teeth.

Porcelain Fused to Metal

These crowns are known for their strength and durability, which also allow for a natural-looking restoration.

Gold Alloys

These may be used when more strength is needed, particularly for patients who grind their teeth at night.

Base Metal Alloys

These are strong and corrosion-resistant and are often used when less existing tooth structures are available to support the crown restoration.
