What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a protective covering placed over a tooth that has significant decay or damage. A crown is shaped like a natural tooth and made to match the color of your neighboring teeth for a natural appearance. When a tooth is fitted with a dental crown, the natural root of the tooth remains intact. Crowns may be used for teeth that are chipped, cracked, or severely decayed.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns offer many benefits:

  • Saves the natural root. Dental crowns allow the natural root of your tooth to remain in place in your mouth. This preserves the natural support structures for your teeth to prevent resorption.
  • Looks natural. Porcelain crowns look natural because they resemble tooth enamel. The crown can be made to match the shape, size, and color of your existing teeth.
  • Improves the appearance of your teeth. If you have a tooth that is chipped or worn down, a dental crown can restore the natural shape to improve your smile.
  • Prevents the need for replacement. A crown can often restore a tooth so that it doesn’t need to be extracted and replaced.
  • Improves tooth function. A crown can correct your bite alignment and improve your chewing capabilities.

Are You a Good Candidate for Crowns?

There are a few criteria that would make you a good candidate for a dental crown. If you have a tooth that is cracked, a crown can repair the tooth. You may also be a good candidate for a crown if you have a chipped or broken tooth that still has an intact root canal. Crowns can also improve the appearance of teeth that are uneven or stained. As long as there is enough tooth structure available to attach it, a crown is likely a possibility for you. In some cases a root canal is needed before the placement of a dental crown.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my tooth needs a crown?
Sometimes a crack in a tooth is small and difficult to see. You may experience tooth pain that comes and goes, making it hard to diagnose the problem. We can detect small cracks in teeth that may need crowns.
What does crown placement entail?
Before a crown can be placed the existing enamel must be reduced to make room for a crown to be attached. Impressions are made to create a crown that is the correct size and shape. Once the crown is complete it can be fitted and bonded to the remaining tooth material.
Does a dental crown require special care?
You can brush and floss as if the crown is just another one of your natural teeth. Good oral hygiene is important to maintain the health of the natural root beneath the crown.
Will I need a root canal before getting a crown?
In some cases a root canal is necessary and in other cases it may be recommended. It will depend on the patient’s individual needs.
