Understanding Dental Crowns
Dental crowns, often referred to as “caps,” are custom-fitted restorations that cover the entire surface of a tooth. They are designed to restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of a tooth that has been damaged, decayed, or compromised in some way.
When Are Dental Crowns Needed?
- To protect a weakened tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth.
- Restoring a broken or severely worn down tooth.
- Covering and supporting a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t much tooth left.
- Holding a dental bridge in place.
- Covering misshapen or severely discolored teeth.
- Covering a dental implant.
- Cosmetic modification for enhanced smile appearance.
Types of Dental Crowns
- Porcelain or Ceramic: Popular for their natural color match and suitability for people with metal allergies.
- Gold and Metal Alloys: Known for their strength and durability, especially for back teeth.
- Porcelain Fused to Metal: Offers both strength (due to the metal structure) and a natural appearance (due to the porcelain coat).
The Dental Crown Procedure at Ideal Smiles Dental Care
Initial Consultation and Evaluation
Your crown procedure begins with a comprehensive evaluation, where we assess the affected tooth and discuss your specific needs and preferences.
The tooth receiving the crown is reshaped to ensure a proper fit. This process might involve removing decay or a portion of the tooth.
Impression and Crown Fabrication
We take an impression of the tooth, which is sent to a dental lab where your crown is custom-made. In some cases, same-day crowns may be available.
A temporary crown is fitted while your permanent crown is being made. This temporary cover helps protect the tooth and maintain its functionality.
Fitting Your Permanent Crown
Once your custom crown is ready, we schedule a follow-up appointment to fit and securely bond the crown onto your tooth, making any necessary adjustments for comfort and bite alignment.
