Dental crowns are a restorative dental treatment option that utilizes a tooth shaped “cap” to restore the appearance, function, health and even strength of an affected tooth. Dental crowns can be made using various materials, however, tooth-colored dental crowns are the most popular option as they can easily blend with the patient’s smile. Dental crowns are bonded directly over the affected tooth, improving the appearance of the tooth while also protecting it from any future complications.
Dental crowns may be recommended in the event a patient isn’t a candidate for a more traditional restoration. Reasons this may occur include severe damage and severe decay which require a bit more structural support when trying to restore. Dental crowns are also often used as a restoration for dental implants, following a root canal treatment and to secure a dental bridge.
Prior to receiving dental crowns, your dentist will first have to prepare the tooth, removing enamel and tiny portions of the tooth structure. Next, impressions will be taken to fabricate your dental crown. Once completed, your dental crown will be bonded directly over the top of your affected tooth.
