What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown gets its name from the fact that it literally sits on top of a natural tooth. This enables it to do two important things at the same time. One, it protects any weakened or fragile enamel, and two, it’s able to restore a tooth’s original shape and appearance. Crowns help us save damaged teeth rather than remove them, which is a much more conservative approach that is also better for a patient’s long-term oral health.

How We Use Crowns

With a dental crown, we can accomplish all sorts of things, including:

Crowns can be made from a variety of materials ranging from all-metal to all-porcelain. The material we choose will be based on where a tooth is located in the mouth as well as a patient’s specific situation. Generally, a back tooth needs to be as strong as possible, so we’ll use a metal crown, while a front tooth needs to be strong and pleasing to look at, in which case we’ll provide an all-porcelain crown.

What is the Procedure Like?

What to Expect with a Crown

Right after the procedure, your tooth might feel a little more sensitive for a few days, but this should subside naturally. To take care of your crown, all you need to do is treat it like a natural tooth, meaning you should brush, floss, and attend regular checkups. With this approach, you can look forward to your crown lasting for about 15-20 years.
