What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers a damaged or decayed tooth in order to restore its shape, size, and strength, and improve its overall appearance. Crowns are typically used when a tooth has a large filling or a significant amount of damage that cannot be repaired with a filling alone. They are also commonly used as a follow-up to root canal treatment to protect the tooth and restore its function.
Generally, dental crowns are made from materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal, and are custom-designed to match the form and appearance of your surrounding natural teeth.
Reasons For A Dental Crown
There are many reasons why a dental crown may be recommended. These include:
- Repairing a tooth that has been significantly damaged by tooth decay
- Restoring a tooth that has been fractured or broken
- Restoring the shape and strength of a tooth that has been weakened or worn down
- Improving the appearance of a tooth that is permanently stained or oddly shaped/sized
- Restoring a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
- Anchoring a dental bridge in place
- Completing a dental implant to replace a missing tooth
No matter the reason for getting a crown, our team is here to provide personalized care and treatment tailored to your dental needs.
Types Of Crowns
There are different types of dental crowns to choose from when restoring your teeth. Each type has its own benefits and considerations.
- All-resin crowns
- Porcelain crowns
- Porcelain fused to metal crowns
All-resin crowns are the most affordable option, but may not be as durable as other types of crowns. Porcelain crowns are the most natural-looking and can blend in seamlessly with surrounding teeth, making them an excellent choice for front teeth. Porcelain fused to metal crowns offer the strength of metal with the aesthetic benefits of porcelain, but there is a risk of the metal showing through over time. Our team can help you choose the best type of crown for your specific needs and budget.
Placement Of Dental Crowns
At Family Dentistry of Walnut Creek, we believe that every patient is unique and deserves personalized care, especially when it comes to dental crowns. Our team takes the time to consult with you and determine whether a dental crown is the best option to address your specific oral health needs.
We then prepare the tooth by shaping it to ensure a proper fit for the crown. Impressions of the tooth are taken so that the crown can be made from a material of your choice, such as porcelain, to achieve a natural-looking result. While your crown is being crafted in the laboratory, we will place a temporary crown on your tooth to protect it. Once your crown is ready, we will check the fit and then cement it in place, ensuring a comfortable and long-lasting restoration.
