What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-crafted “cap” that’s made to fit over the biting surface of your damaged or weakened tooth above the gumline. This restoration can be made from many different materials, including gold, ceramic, and porcelain. Dental crowns are generally recommended if you have one of the following dental issues:

  • Broken tooth in need of additional support
  • Missing tooth being replaced with a dental implant
  • Tooth that is severely misshapen or discolored
  • Dental bridge that needs support from adjacent teeth
  • Tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
  • Severe decay repaired with a large dental filling

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

The process of getting a dental crown is relatively straightforward. It generally takes place over a few appointments. During the first one, we will take a look at your smile to ensure that a dental crown is the best option to protect your tooth. Next, a thin layer of you enamel is removed to make room for the crown to fit comfortably. The goal is for your crown to feel just like your natural tooth. That’s why an impression is then taken of your tooth and surrounding gumline. This will be sent to a dental laboratory where your crown is custom-crafted just for you.

As soon as your crown is ready, we will let you know so you can come back to the practice. In the meantime, you will be given a temporary crown to keep your tooth safe and help you get used to how your new restoration will feel.
