Can Dental Crowns Solve Your Tooth Problems?

Dental Crowns

A dental crown, also called a dental cap, is a type of dental restoration that returns a tooth to its normal size and shape. It covers the entire visible portion of the tooth to strengthen it and improve its appearance. When teeth are broken down, and fillings won’t restore them, dental crowns provide a permanent solution. A dental crown can restore a tooth when there isn’t adequate structure remaining to support a filling. They can also attach a dental bridge, restore a fractured tooth, protect weak teeth from damage, or cover misshapen or discolored teeth. Various types of dental crowns are available for treating specific problems.

How Does the Dentist Prepare My Tooth for a Crown? 



Your dentist in Woodbridge will reduce the size of your tooth to accommodate the crown, and take impressions of your teeth and gums to send to the lab so they can customize a permanent crown. You will probably wear a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.

How Are Crowns Different from Veneers? 



Dental 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 Long Will My Crown Last? 



Crowns are generally expected to last five to eight years, but with proper care, most crowns last 10 years or longer.

How Do I Take Care of a Crown? 



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