What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crowns is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain, that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A dental crown can be the right choice to recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
The crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down the the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile. Our Lake Forest dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant, providing a stable chewing surface
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a weakened tooth from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover misshapen or discolored teeth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth that has been treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a dental crown is placed, most patients are able to enjoy chewing without pain, and are able to smile with confidence.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years. It depends on the wear and tear the dental crown is exposed to and if a patient takes care of the crown with regular brushing and flossing. A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular air powder cleanings and thorough check-ups with Dr. Narkhede are important!
