Dental crowns are commonly referred to as “caps,” where the dental crown surrounds the visible portion of the entire tooth. They are typically used when natural teeth are damaged by tooth decay or trauma. Because the crown encases the tooth entirely, it protects and strengthens your tooth so that you can function and chew without worry. This method is highly reliable for repairing the most severe of dental problems. At Sloan Creek Dental, we use metal-free crowns that are both durable and natural-looking so you can smile confidently.
Your smile may benefit from a dental crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Dental crowns are less invasive, preserve the natural tooth structure, and require much less recovery time than dental implants because the tooth does not have to be extracted. Most commonly, dental crowns are used to correct the following dental scenarios for a healthy smile:
At Sloan Creek Dental, we use porcelain crowns as they are the most popular crown used nowadays due to the durability of the material compared to other crowns. Some advantages of using porcelain crowns are:
Crown placement is a two-step process that involves two visits to our office. On the first visit, a local anesthetic will be given before this part of the procedure so you won’t feel any discomfort. The dentist will clean and remove any tooth decay and shape the tooth’s surface to fit the crown properly. Once these details are complete, a impression (mold) will be taken of the tooth and the surrounding teeth. This mold will be sent to a dental laboratory where they will fabricate a new crown where the tooth color will be matched to the natural shade of your other teeth.
While the crown is being crafted, this time we’ll fit you a temporary restoration, so the tooth is not exposed. Once your permanent crown is ready, you will come back to the office where we will remove your temporary crown, the tooth will be cleaned before placing the permanent crown onto the tooth, and the dentist will ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.
Your crown should be treated just like your natural tooth. With proper care such as brushing and flossing regularly, going to the dentist for general check-ups and cleanings, your crown will last for a very long time.
Crowns are used to protect and strengthen your tooth due to trauma or decay. Unlike a crown that covers the entire tooth, a dental veneer is bonded only to the front of the tooth. Veneers offer a more conservative option to transform the appearance of your teeth while looking and feeling just like your natural tooth. Veneers can be used to change the tooth’s shape, size, or color of teeth so that you can have a smile you have always dreamed of. Both options provide a natural look for a beautiful smile.
