About Dental Crowns

Crowns (also known as caps) cover the entire tooth surface and restore it to its original shape and size. Crowns are especially helpful for teeth that you can't restore through fillings or other restoration methods. Reasons to get a dental crown include:

Crowns come in several different types of materials, but porcelain is the most popular. Porcelain crowns mimic the appearance of a n atural tooth while providing you with both strength and endurance. However, like most dental restorations, the crowns don't last forever , and you might have to replace them eventually.

About the Dental Crown Installation Process

Crown installation requires two appointments. During your first appointment, the dentist will take impressions of your tooth. The crown manufacturer will use these impressions to create a customized crown to fit your tooth.

The dentist will prepare your tooth for the crown by cleaning it, shaping it, and removing any decay. Until the manufacturer finishes the permanent crown, he or she will place a temporary crown on your tooth, which will stay on your tooth for about two weeks.

Once your dentist receives the finished crown, you can visit for your second appointment. At this appointment, the dentist will remove your temporary crown, clean your tooth, and secure your new crown. Your dentist will provide you with proper care instructions and encourage you to schedule regular dental appointments to check your teeth and crown.
