What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a restoration that is custom-made to fit over a weak tooth. Most often, they are recommended:

  • When a severely decayed tooth needs support
  • To anchor a dental bridge in place
  • When a tooth needs protection following root canal treatment
  • On top of a dental implant to restore the visible structure of a tooth

As always, we will review the findings of your oral exam with you at your appointment as well as why we recommend a dental crown. That way, you are an active participant in deciding what’s best for your oral health.

The Dental Crown Process

The dental crown treatment process is typically broken up into two appointments. At the first one, Dr. Brice will remove the decayed or damaged tissue before “prepping” the tooth for the restoration. Then, he will take meticulous impressions for the dental lab, which is where the lab artisans will create your final dental crown. Since that usually takes a few weeks, we’ll secure a temporary one in place in the meantime and provide you with specific instructions on how to care for it so it doesn’t come off too soon.

Your second appointment is usually a bit quicker. After carefully removing your temporary dental crown and ensuring that the final one fits perfectly, we will bond it securely in place. Then, we will share what to expect as you heal and how to keep your restoration in pristine condition for years to come.
