What Is a Dental Crown?

A crown is a dental restoration that covers a compromised or misshaped tooth to protect your tooth and overall oral health. If you have a broken or worn tooth, a tooth with a large cavity, or one that has received root canal therapy, a dental crown is a reliable way to protect it from further damage. Crowns also rejuvenate your bite by recreating the natural surface area and height of the compromised tooth.

An implant-supported crown is used to replace a missing or decayed tooth. This restoration consists of an implant post, an abutment, and a prosthetic tooth. We can craft a traditional or implant-supported crown to restore any tooth, from molars to incisors. Our team will carefully match your custom crown to the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth to create a beautifully blended smile.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns have multiple benefits and boost your oral health and your smile. When you have a weak tooth, a crown protects it from the forces exerted when you chew food, which helps to prevent the tooth from breaking or being cracked. A dental crown can also create the optimal size, height, and surface area of a tooth that is too small or worn. This is vital to protect your neighboring teeth from uneven wear that would expose them to damage or infection.

An implant-supported dental crown restores your bite pattern and the function of a tooth root. The implant post stimulates your jaw just like your natural tooth root, which prevents bone loss and preserves your facial structure.

Our Custom Dental Crown Process

Quality dental care requires personalized treatments. That is why we make you a priority from the moment you walk into our office until you're ready to show off your new smile. We begin your custom crown service with a gentle and detailed exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums. Our team will take precise measurements and impressions to ensure your crown fits properly. We'll discuss the results of the exam as well as any necessary pretreatments with you before finalizing your treatment plan.

Our compassionate team will send the details for your crown to a trusted lab, who craft the crown to fit comfortably in your smile. Once we have received your crown, we will have you return to our office for the final fitting. We gently shape your natural tooth, so your crown fits securely and then cement your crown in place. Our friendly dentist will provide tips and instructions to care for your dental crown, and you can leave our practice ready to show off your new smile.

Dental Crown FAQs

It's natural to have questions when you're choosing the dental restoration that's right for you. That is why we encourage you to voice your concerns and questions. Our team is happy to provide the resources and information you need to feel confident in your personalized treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental crowns.

How long does a dental crown last?
Dental crowns are durable and strong and can last for 10-15 years when properly cared for. It's important that you do not use your traditional or implant-supported crown like a tool to open bottles or cans or to chew on ice or pens, because these will damage your crown.

Do dental crowns hurt?
No. Our custom dental crowns are designed to fit comfortably. Many people forget they have a dental crown because they feel and look natural.

How do I care for my dental crown?
Dental crowns are easy to care for because you simply brush and floss them twice a day just like your natural teeth. It's important that you maintain your biannual dental appointments so our dentist can check the integrity of your restoration.
