What is a dental crown? A dental crown is a hollow false tooth, which is built to fit over your existing tooth after it has been trimmed and shaped. The crown covers up and “caps” the entire tooth, covering it all the way down to the gum line and restoring the shape, color, and function of your tooth.
Zirconium dental crowns Zirconia crowns are made from zirconium dioxide, a very durable type of metal that’s related to titanium. Zirconium generally is a relatively new material that combines the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain crowns.
How does the dentist place the crown on? Our professional dentist will file down and remove part of the outer layer of the tooth. An impression will be made of your trimmed tooth and the surrounding teeth. The dentist will put a temporary crown over your tooth to protect it. They send the impression to a lab that makes the crown.
Why would I need a dental crown? Dental crowns are needed to repair teeth that are too decayed to treat with a filling, and are also used to treat infected teeth after root canals, or to repair a tooth that’s been broken or cracked due to oral trauma. The best way to find out if a dental crown is right for you is to contact our clinic for a free consultation.
Does dental crown hurt? No. During the crown placement process, we will numb your mouth to ensure you don’t feel any discomfort when your tooth is trimmed to make room for your crown.
How should I take care of my dental crown? To make your dental crown last as long as possible, you must brush and floss on a regular basis. When brushing, pay extra attention to your crown and the teeth around it. If you’re an athlete, wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth to lower your risk of damage.
