What are crowns?
Get results you love
A dental crown is a custom tooth cap. It simply fits over the top of a tooth that has suffered from severe decay or damage. Perhaps you have teeth that are misshapen? A tooth crown can give you that even and straight smile that you are looking for.
Crowns offer protection and strength for those damaged teeth. They allow for normal function to be restored.
Today’s high-tech crown solutions offer results that are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
What are the types of crowns available?
There are several types of dental crowns available. When you are getting a crown on a tooth, the type of crown that you get will be based upon the location of the crown and the individual needs of each patient.
It typically takes two appointments for a crown to be placed. It’s important to note that is there is damage to the tooth it should be repaired prior to the placement of the crown. Chipped tooth repair or cracked tooth repair do not typically take very long. Once the teeth have been repaired then an impression of the tooth will be made. These impressions will help to ensure that the crown keeps your bite as comfortable and as natural as is possible.Once the impressions are sent off to the laboratory, the crown will be made.
A temporary crown is often set in place to protect the tooth. They are not meant to be permanent and will not offer the durability of the permanent crown.Once the permanent crown has been made, you’ll return to the dentist chair to have it fitted. Small adjustments might be made in order to ensure a comfortable bite. Once both you and your dentist feel comfortable with the crown placement, it will be bonded in place.
There should be little to no pain during the procedure, but you can ask for a numbing agent if you feel uncomfortable.
Crowns are used as a means of protecting damaged or restored teeth. There are few disadvantages to getting crowns. They offer a way to restore your smile while also protecting your healthy teeth from further decay and damage.
Most patients find that there are only advantages to be had when they get a tooth crown. Not only will the crown ensure protection for the tooth, but it’ll restore a bite that may be been off due to a reluctance to chew on that side of the mouth.
Crowns can last a lifetime with proper care. They can sustain damage just like natural teeth can. If your crown is cracked or loosened, it’s important that you make an appointment with the clinic to get it repaired. This will help to avoid the potential for further damage to your natural tooth.

The loss of teeth can happen for any number of reasons. Whether the result of serious decay or an injury, the tooth that was lost left a gap between teeth that needs to be addressed. While the loss of some teeth may not have an immediate impact on your smile they can have an impact on your bite.
