Dental crowns explained
There are several situations that may arise in which a patient may need to restore a tooth with a dental crown. Crowns are ceramic restorations that are made as a “cap” to cover the exposed portion of a tooth. Situations that may require the placement of a dental crown include:
- Large fillings that affect the strength of the tooth’s structure
- Following root canals that may cause the teeth to become weak or brittle
- Covering a dental implant to function as a tooth replacement
- Fusing to false teeth called pontics to fabricate a dental bridge
These are common situations in which a patient may need a dental crown
The process for a dental crown is streamlined with the help of a dental laboratory. The tooth that requires the dental crown will be prepared with the removal of enamel. This eliminates excess bulk when the crown is placed. Impressions are taken and sent to a laboratory where a ceramist fabricates the crown. Once bonded into place, the dental crown is known to last a decade or longer with proper care.
