Dental Crown

Crown usually means something is wrong with your teeth and there is a need to cap the tooth in order to prevent further issues. All Star Dental & Implant Center knows a lot about crowns, and our dentists will not just tell you why you need them, but also what to expect when they go in.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a lot like a cap that is put over your tooth. The crown can bring your tooth back to its normal function and is typically only used for damaged teeth. A crown can be made from several different types of materials, including metal alloys, porcelain, or composite resin. Once it is shaped to your tooth, it slides over the damage and protects your teeth from any more struggle.

Why do you need a crown

Dental crowns are often needed whenever things have gone really bad with your teeth. If you have a very large cavity that cannot be filled and cleaned normally, have a cracked or damaged tooth, or have just had a root canal, you will need a crown.

Crowns cover up the damage to make your tooth look natural again and can support dental bridges and cover-up implants. Any time you make a major change to one of your teeth, you will need a crown to cover it.

How do crowns work?

Whenever you come into our office to have a crown installed, we will get started by fixing up the underlying tooth as best as we can. We get rid of any decay or excess tooth to ensure that the crown fits, and then we make an impression of what is left of the tooth. Once the impression is made, we might have to give you a temporary crown.

After about two weeks, your new crown is ready. We will have you come back into the office and remove the temporary crown, before placing the new crown in your mouth. If you are happy with how the new crown looks and feels in your mouth, then we will cement it into place. After that, one of your teeth has been crowned, but the process is not over yet.

Caring for your crowned tooth

Just because your tooth has a crown, does not mean that it is indestructible or immune to all damage. Crowns can break and the remainder of your tooth can still get cavities and be susceptible to tooth decay. You should still care for your crowned tooth as if it was a normal tooth with brushing and flossing twice a day, while also continuing a routine appointment to see us at least twice a year.

Crowns are easy to install if you need one, and we do our best to make every step of the process easy for our patients. If you need crowns installed on your teeth, please call All Star Dental & Implant Center at (808) 808-1606 today. We will be happy to work with you and make sure that your crowns are installed correctly.
