What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a damaged or misshapen tooth. Dental crowns can be used to:
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking
- Restore a broken tooth
- Cover a dental implant
- Improve the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Hold together parts of a cracked tooth
If you have a dental crown, it's important to practice good oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. With proper care, dental crowns can last for many years.
Reasons for Dental Crowns
There are many reasons why you may need a dental crown. Some of the most common reasons include:
- Cracked tooth
- Tooth that is broken or severely worn down.
- Dental implant
- Misshapen tooth
- Tooth that is discolored or has severe stains that cannot be corrected with teeth whitening
Dental Crown Treatment
Once you've decided to get dental crowns, the treatment process will begin with an exam. During your exam, Dr. Vo will view your mouth and teeth to determine if dental crowns are the right solution for you.
If dental crowns are right for you, Dr. Vo will take impressions of your teeth so that the dental crowns can be custom made to fit your mouth. In some cases, temporary dental crowns may be placed at this time. Once your crowns have been made, you will return to our office to have them placed. The temporary dental crowns will be removed and the new dental crowns will be checked for fit. Once Dr. Vo is sure the dental crowns fit properly, they will be cemented into place.
You may experience some sensitivity after your crown procedure, but this should go away within a few days. It's important to practice good oral hygiene and visit Green Lake Cosmetic Dentistry regularly for checkups and cleanings to ensure that your dental crowns last for many years.
