What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a cap that is cemented on top of a troubled tooth to recreate its original size, shape, and appearance. It is often used to repair damaged teeth when traditional fillings aren’t enough. While they are often used to restore teeth after injury, decay, or dental treatments like root canals, crowns are also used to protect damaged teeth from further injury or infection, to anchor appliances like dental bridges in place, and to reshape teeth that are small or misshapen. Dental crowns come in a variety of materials, and we offer them in dental porcelain, zirconia, and more traditional materials like metal.

The Dental Crown Process

It usually takes two appointments to receive a dental crown, and we will do everything we can to keep you comfortable during the process.

The first appointment begins with a consultation, during which our dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your goals for the treatment with you. This usually involves taking X-rays to gain information about the tooth and the surrounding bone. Once they’ve determined that a dental crown is the appropriate treatment, they will carefully reshape the tooth being treated to eliminate decayed matter and make room. If your tooth needs a lot of structure removed, it may have to be partially rebuilt with filling material. Local anesthetics render this whole process completely painless.

Our dentist will then take an impression of the treated tooth and place a temporary crown upon it. The impressions will be sent to a lab where the permanent crown will be manufactured, and you will be sent on your way. When we receive the permanent one, you will return to the office so we can remove the temporary one and cement the new crown in place.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown

Dental crowns from Smile Castle Rock offer many significant benefits for your appearance and your oral health. A few of these include:

  • Protecting teeth: Dental crowns can protect weakened teeth from injury and infection, which can potentially save them from more invasive procedures like root canals or extractions.
  • A prettier smile: Tooth-colored dental crowns are indistinguishable from natural tooth structure, allowing them to seamlessly improve your smile’s appearance.
  • Restored chewing power: By restoring the strength of a damaged tooth, a dental crown allows the patient to chew comfortably and normally.
  • Results that last: With proper maintenance and excellent oral hygiene, a crown can last for fifteen years or more.

Don’t let a damaged tooth diminish your self-image and quality of life. By getting dental crowns at Smile Castle Rock, you can achieve a beautiful smile that can chew with the best of them.
