Dental crowns: what they are and when they are needed

Crowns are like a cap for your natural tooth that can be used in a variety of circumstances to restore your tooth’s appearance and function. Dental crowns are made of porcelain, a material that is naturally compatible with your body and that strengthens the tooth and supports its natural function.

Dental crowns are custom designed to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth so that the end result looks natural and complements your smile. They are bonded to your tooth and typically last about 10-20 years depending on your oral health and how well you care for them. Dental crowns can be a good treatment option for the following types of dental issues:

  • Too much wear on teeth: Certain conditions such as tooth grinding, clenching, or acid reflux can cause the hard coating of enamel on your teeth to wear down over time. When this happens, a crown can be used to cover the eroded teeth to protect them and restore their natural hardness, so you are able to eat and drink normally.
  • Cusps that have broken off: Cusps are the pointy part of the tooth that is used to chew, tear, and grind food. These can become damaged or break off due to trauma, decay, or other reasons. When this happens, a crown can be used to cover the tooth and restore its natural chewing surface.
  • After dental procedures such as root canals or large fillings: When you have a dental procedure such as a root canal or a large filling, a crown is typically needed to cover the remaining tooth to prevent it from cracking or further decay.
  • Cracked or chipped teeth: If trauma or chronic conditions cause your tooth to become chipped or cracked, a crown can be used to give the tooth a natural appearance and strengthen it to prevent additional fracturing and eliminate pain.
  • Imperfections on visible teeth: If your teeth are discolored, have gaps or spaces between them, or are misshapen, a crown can be used to minimize these imperfections for a natural, healthy-looking smile.

Your dentist can consult with you about your individual dental needs and oral health to determine if a crown or other tooth restoration option is the best choice for you.

What to expect during your visit

Beautiful smile, white strong teeth.The creation and placement of a crown typically takes two visits. In the first visit, the dentist will file down your existing tooth to prepare it for the crown. This is necessary so that the tooth with the crown doesn’t take up extra space in your mouth. Then, the doctor will take a mold of your tooth so that the crown can be custom-fitted to your individual mouth. The crown is fabricated in a laboratory using the latest advances in technology. A temporary crown will be placed on the prepared tooth until the permanent crown is placed.

When the permanent crown is ready to be placed, the dentist will take off the temporary crown and then bond the new crown into place with an adhesive. The new crown may feel unusual in your mouth at first, but over time, you will adjust to the way it looks and feels.
