What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown, sometimes called a cap, is an artificial covering that protects and strengthens a damaged tooth. It’s designed to encase the entire surface of the damaged tooth and replicate the tooth’s original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including:

  • Metal
  • Porcelain
  • Ceramic
  • Composite resin
  • Zirconia
  • A hybrid of multiple materials

Your Adirondack Dental Group dentist chooses which material is best for you depending on factors such as:

  • Color of your teeth
  • Location of your damaged tooth
  • Amount of damage to the tooth
  • Function of the damaged tooth

Crowns are created to match the size, shape, and color of your teeth. Porcelain crowns are the most popular because the coloring of the material typically resembles your natural teeth.

What are Some Reasons for Dental Crowns?

What Can I Expect in a Dental Crown Procedure?

The first step in receiving a crown involves taking several detailed molds of your teeth. Dr. Milward then removes any decay and reshapes your tooth’s surface to accurately fit your temporary crown with cement. The temporary crown keeps your tooth healthy while the dental lab produces your customized dental crown. Once the new dental crown is ready, the team removes the temporary crown, cleans your teeth, checks your bite, and ensures that your teeth spacing is accurate. Your new dental crown is then placed.

Regular checkups and maintenance are required to keep a healthy dental crown. Dental crowns are extremely durable and are expected to last for many years. However, like most dental restorations, they may need to be replaced eventually. To learn more about dental crowns and to schedule an initial consultation at Adirondack Dental Group, call today.
