Your Guide To Dental Crowns
If you have a chipped, broken, severely discolored or decayed tooth, a dental crown may be the best option for restoring your smile. While some teeth just need a simple filling to restore them to health, other teeth need a crown placed over the entire surface, starting at the gum line.
What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns protect and preserve a cracked or broken tooth. Your dentist at Avon Dental may recommend using a dental crown in the following situations:
- To attach a bridge
- When a filling is too large for the tooth to support
- To protect a cracked or broken tooth
- To cover a tooth with a root canal
- For cosmetic enhancement
Porcelain vs Metal Crowns
If we determine a dental crown is the best restoration option, we’ll help you choose the material that best fits your needs.
Porcelain crowns appear natural in color and shape and can last many years. Unlike other types of crowns, porcelain crowns leave no black marks on your gum line.
Metal crowns made of gold, silver or porcelain over metal, the standard for crowns for many years, are still occasionally used. Known to create a black line at the gum line, these are not a popular choice in more visible areas.
How a dental crown is made
Dental crowns are custom-fitted to your tooth. The doctor will take a digital scan of your tooth and send it to our dental laboratory to create the crown. While we’re waiting for your new crown, a temporary crown will protect the remaining tooth and give the tooth time to heal properly before crown placement. When your permanent crown is ready, we’ll place it and make adjustments to ensure a perfect fit. With good dental care habits, your crown can last many years. We warranty our 3 years with routine, preventative dental visits every 6 months.
