Can Your Teeth Benefit from Dental Crowns or Caps?

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, or caps, are tooth-shaped covers that fit over the entire visible surface of a damaged tooth to provide stability and restore proper function. A dental crown can correct cosmetic flaws and protect weakened teeth from fracture. Dental crowns are helpful when a tooth has a large cavity, and there isn’t enough of the tooth left to support a filling. They can also help support dental bridges, and restore misshapen or discolored teeth to a normal appearance. Different types of dental crowns are used for different teeth and specific dental issues.

Following are some of the most commonly asked questions about dental crowns:

How Are Dental Crowns Different from Veneers? 



Crowns cover more of your tooth than a veneer, and they require more modification of the tooth surface. They are typically applied to teeth with significant damage or weakened structure. Veneers are customarily used for cosmetic restoration only.

Will a Crown look Natural? 



With the exception of all-metal crowns, dental crowns are customized to match the appearance of a natural tooth in shape, size and color.

How Does the Dentist Prepare My Tooth for a Crown? 



First, your dentist will modify your natural tooth to make room for the crown. Impressions of your teeth and gums are then created to help the lab produce your new crown. You will probably wear a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.

How Long Will My Crown Last? 



Five to eight years is a general estimate of crown longevity, but most crowns can last up to 10 years or even longer with proper care.

How Do I Take Care of a Dental Crown?

Avoid chewing hard foods and ice. 
Regular dental visits, management of tooth-grinding problems, and diligent oral hygiene are important.
