What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a cap that protects and restores a damaged tooth. We provide several types of dental crowns, including porcelain, resin, zirconia, ceramic, gold, and chromium. We may recommend a dental crown if you’re experiencing one or more of the following:
- Decayed teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Teeth with oversized fillings
The crown sits snugly on the top (the “crown”) of the natural tooth to protect it from further damage.
The Dental Crown Process
When you come in for your appointment, we place your crown in two steps:
- Preparing for the crown: During your first appointment, we will prepare your tooth for the crown. This involves taking a dental impression of your tooth and providing a temporary crown that you will wear until your next appointment.
- Creating the permanent crown: We send your dental impression to a lab to create a custom-fit crown that will attach to your tooth.
- Placing the permanent crown: Once your custom crown is done, we will permanently attach it with dental cement, check the fit, and make sure it feels comfortable.
Our team creates custom dental crowns that look and function like natural teeth. We’ll ensure they’re the right color, shape, and translucency to give you a smile you’ll be proud of.
The Benefits of Dental Crowns
There is a wide range of benefits to getting a dental crown. First, getting a crown is quick and easy. This non-invasive procedure usually takes only two appointments.
Your crown will prevent tooth decay from spreading and protect your natural tooth from damage. With proper care and routine dental checkups, permanent crowns can last between 5 and 15 years.
Our experienced team at Engel Dental Center is dedicated to exceptional treatment and patient care every step of the way. When you come in for your dental crown appointment, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable and answer all your questions.
