What are Dental Crowns?

Shaped like a tooth, a dental crown is essentially a “cap” for your smile. It is designed to be permanently attached to a tooth, covering it completely. Crowns can be made from many different materials, including gold and metal alloys. However, all-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns have become very popular in recent years since they can be customized in such a way that they match your natural teeth perfectly so that most people don’t even realize that you’ve had dental work done.

How Do I Know If I Need a Crown?

A dental crown can be placed if:

  • You have broken your tooth in an accident.
  • Your tooth is severely worn down due to use over the years.
  • Your tooth has suffered from extensive decay and is much weaker than it was before.
  • You have a misshapen tooth, a severe enamel stain that doesn’t respond to whitening, or another cosmetic flaw.
  • You need to replace a single tooth with a dental implant or a bridge.
  • You have just had root canal therapy and need to reinforce the tooth.

As you can see, crowns are extremely versatile and can be used in many different situations. Of course, before we can decide that a crown or any other type of restoration is necessary, we’ll need to diagnose your oral health issues and take X-rays of your mouth in order to gain a full understanding of your unique situation. Get in touch with us as soon as you notice visible damage on your tooth or have reason to believe your tooth is decayed or infected.

Benefits of Getting a Crown

Teeth do not heal by themselves; once they have been injured, a crown is necessary for you to continue using it safely. It can also protect the exposed tooth from infection or further injury. Other benefits include:

  • A Natural Appearance: With the right material, you won’t have to worry about a crown standing out whenever you smile.
  • Durability: Crowns tend to be very tough and can last around 10 to 15 years before they need to be replaced.
  • Easy Maintenance: Aside from paying close attention to the underside of the crown while brushing, your new restoration won’t require much in the way of special maintenance.
