Dental crowns are used to restore function and beauty of teeth that have been discolored, cracked, chipped, or damaged. When a significant cavity threatens the health and structure of a tooth, a crown can be installed to prevent any further damage, and protect the underlying tooth. Each crown is custom made for each patient. They are durable and esthetically pleasing while enabling you to bite down, chew, and speak naturally.

Essentially, a dental crown is a cap which gets placed over an entire tooth, so as to serve in a protective role or as a cosmetic enhancement. Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials, including metal, porcelain, and even gold.

Why would I need a dental crown or dental bridge?

Dental crowns are used to protect the entire tooth if the tooth has been significantly weakened by decay or if cracking or chipping has occurred. If you notice severe pain when biting down on foods, you may have a cracked tooth, and this would require a crown in order to stave off additional cracking or other damage. 

Dental crowns can also be used to esthetically enhance your smile. Crowns can be used to reshape teeth, hide discolored teeth, and even out your smile. 

After having a tooth pulled, you would be left with a missing tooth. Missing teeth can make it difficult to chew your favorite foods or smile without embarrassment. If missing teeth are not promptly treated, the remaining teeth may begin to shift and become crooked. There are several options to replace a missing tooth/teeth including implants, a dental bridge, or dentures.

These are special caps which do not fully cover a tooth like a traditional dental crown would. These are often used when your tooth structure is largely intact, and a full crown is not really necessary.

If there is any decay present in your tooth, that will be removed by your dentist.

Then, your tooth will be reshaped and resized to give enough space to fabricate a custom made beautiful, well-fitting, and durable crown.

We will match the color of your new crown to your existing teeth so it will blend in flawlessly with your natural teeth.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

Depending on how well a crown is cared for, it can last anywhere from 10 years to 30 years, and in some cases, even a lifetime. In other situations, a crown may be cracked by biting down on some kind of hard food or ice, and this will call for a replacement at any stage of installation.

Does a Crowned Tooth Require Special Care?

No, there is no special care required for a dental crown. However, the underlying tooth will still need to be properly cared for, so you should continue with your normal dental visits as well as daily brushing and flossing practices to keep the rest of your mouth healthy.

Pros and Cons of Dental Crowns

In order to make the crown fit perfectly, it will be necessary to grind down the tooth somewhat - and that makes this an irreversible procedure. On the plus side, dental crowns look and function just like your natural teeth. Dental crowns take about two appointments to complete.
