What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns or caps are permanent tooth-shaped restorations for fractured and severely decayed teeth. They’re made from silver, gold, stainless steel, or porcelain and cover weak and damaged teeth, protecting them from further damage and bacterial infection. Crowns also strengthen the damaged teeth, restoring their functionality to allow proper biting and chewing.

Lab-made Crowns

Our lab-made crowns are made from top-grade silver, gold, and stainless steel, offering unmatched strength and durability. You can also settle for porcelain and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns that resemble your natural teeth. The treatment requires two sessions, with the second session after three weeks for receiving and fitting your crowns.

What to Expect When Getting Dental Crowns

Treatment Plan and Tooth Preparation

After telling your dentist your intentions to get dental crowns, they’ll examine your teeth and take X-rays to determine the suitability of dental crowns for your case. If they find you suitable for the procedure, they’ll create a personalized treatment plan outlining the steps to install the dental crown. They’ll then prepare your teeth by injecting a local anesthetic in your gums and drilling portions of your teeth to accommodate your enamel.

Taking Impressions and Laboratory Fabrication

In the second step, the dentist will take impressions of the teeth surrounding the crowns and the affected tooth. They’ll use a putty-like substance to create molds or an intraoral scanner to get 3D scans. The models and scans are forwarded to a lab that will manufacture your crowns in about three weeks before sending them to the dentist.

Crown Placement and Adjustments

After three weeks, the dentist will create time to fit your crowns. During this session, they’ll place the crown over your teeth, checking the fit and color. If the color and fit are okay, the dentist will cement the crown permanently and make minor adjustments to ensure comfort and a perfect fit.

Final Check and Post-Treatment Care

With the crown in place, the dentist will check the correctness of the fit and ask you to bite on a thin sheet to register your bite. If everything checks out, the dentist will provide instructions for caring for your crowns and maintaining proper dental health before releasing you home.

The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Enhanced Protection

Dental crowns provide an extra layer of protection for your weak or damaged teeth. They can prevent further damage and decay by covering the entire tooth surface and acting as a protective barrier.

Improved Aesthetics

If you have stained, discolored, or misshapen teeth, dental crowns can significantly enhance your smile's appearance. Our skilled dentists will carefully match the color and shape of your natural teeth, ensuring that your crowns blend seamlessly with your smile.

Restored Functionality

With dental crowns, you can regain the ability to bite, chew, and speak comfortably. By restoring the shape and size of your damaged tooth, crowns allow for proper alignment and function, ensuring that you can enjoy your favorite foods and activities without any discomfort.

How Long Is the Recovery Period for Dental Crowns?

The dental crown cosmetic treatment doesn’t have any “downtime.” This means you can resume your usual activities and diet immediately after treatment. However, it takes a few days for the body to recover from the inflammation and irritation in the affected tooth. Meanwhile, avoid eating hard and crunchy foods to avoid breaking the crowns and disrupting recovery.
