What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-crafted “cap” that is made to precisely fit over the chewing surface of a damaged or weakened tooth above the gumline. The restoration can be made from a variety of different materials. Dental crowns are generally recommended for patients with the following issues:

  • Broken tooth that requires additional support
  • Tooth that’s undergone root canal therapy
  • Severe decay that’s being repaired with a large filling
  • Dental bridge needing support from adjacent teeth
  • Severely misshapen or discolored tooth
  • Missing tooth being replaced with a dental implant

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

Having a dental crown placed is a relatively straightforward process. It can usually be completed in just two visits to the dental office. The first step involves examining your smile to ensure that a crown is the best solution for you. Once this is confirmed by your dentist, a thin layer of the enamel needs to be removed. This creates room for the crown to fit comfortably in the mouth and appear natural. An impression is then taken and sent to the dental laboratory where your crown will be crafted.

In the meantime, you will be provided with a temporary crown. This will protect your tooth and help you become accustomed to how your new dental crown will feel. As soon as your final restoration is complete, you can return to the practice where it will be adhered using a special dental cement.
