crowns4 (Medium)A dental crown (cap) is a covering that encases a tooth’s entire surface and will restore the size, shape, and strength of the tooth.  After it is permanently bonded in place, only a dentist or dental specialist can remove it.

With good oral hygiene and proper care of the crown, it would be expected to last from 5 to 15 years, but like most dental restorations, they will eventually need to be replaced.

There are several types of crowns.  Porcelain (tooth colored) crowns tend to be the most popular.  Other types of crowns consist of full metal or a combination of porcelain and metal.

There are many instances where a crown can be recommended:

  • A fractured or broken tooth
  • A weak tooth from a large cavity
  • A severely worn down tooth
  • An endodontically (root-canal) treated tooth
  • Cosmetics
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To cover teeth on either side of a missing space to create a dental bridge

Patient Experience

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments.crowns3 (Medium)

  1. The dentist prepares the tooth by removing the decay and shaping the tooth for the crown.
  2. An impression (mold) is then made of the tooth.  Your crown will then be fabricated precisely to fit your prepared tooth.
  3. A temporary crown will be fitted to protect the tooth and gums until the crown is fabricated.
  4. During the second office visit, your dentist will permanently affix the crown to your tooth or dental implant.
