What are Dental Crowns used for?

While dental crowns are most often used for restorative purposes, dentists also use them for cosmetic reasons. They are a versatile treatment for various dental issues, and contribute to the structural integrity and cosmetic enhancement of teeth. A tooth crown will protect, strengthen and improve the appearance of a tooth. Some common uses of dental crowns include:

  • Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Strengthen abutment teeth for dental bridge
  • Restore a missing tooth with the use of a dental implant
  • Strengthen and repair a damaged, chipped or cracked tooth
  • Support a large filling when there is little tooth structure left
  • Cover stained or discolored tooth
  • Correct misshapen or crooked teeth
  • Close the gaps between teeth

Dental Crowns: What to Expect

The process for placing a traditional dental crown requires 2-3 office visits. At the first appointment, your dentist will evaluate your needs, take digital diagnostics as needed, and review your treatment plan with you. Our helpful staff will answer all your questions, and file your dental insurance claim.

At your next visit, your dentist will prepare the tooth receiving a dental crown. We will numb the area around the tooth for your comfort. Then your dentist shape the tooth by removing enough structure for stable placement. Your dentist will place a temporary crown on the tooth so you can function normally until the final crown is ready.

At the next visit, we will place your custom dental crown. After making last-minute adjustments for fit and comfort, we will polish the surface for a natural look and feel. Your new crown will feel and function like your natural teeth. Good daily oral hygiene and routine dental care will support a lasting result.

The process is similar to getting a traditional crown but faster. You will still require a consultation and diagnostics. At your appointment, you will leave with your permanent dental crown instead of a temporary one.

The first step is to the numb the area around the tooth. Your dentist will prepare your tooth by removing a good amount of the tooth structure. Once your tooth is ready, they will take digital impressions of the tooth using a special scanning wand. This will produce digital images we can use to design and fabricate a custom ceramic dental crown while you wait. This advanced software, CAD/CAM design, allows to create a precise crown that will fit seamlessly in your mouth.

Once we are happy with the design, we will begin the milling process. The final design is sent to the milling machine which will carve out your dental crown from a block of high-quality ceramic materials. Our dental care team will place the new crown once complete and make adjustments where needed to fit comfortably and allow for a natural bite.
