What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, often called caps, are custom-made restorations that encase a damaged or weakened tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crafted from high-quality materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these, dental crowns provide a robust, long-lasting solution for teeth that have undergone significant decay, fractures, root canal therapy, or cosmetic imperfections.

When Are Dental Crowns Needed?

There are several scenarios where dental crowns are the ideal solution:

  • When a tooth is extensively decayed, a dental crown protects the remaining structure, preventing further damage.

Teeth with fractures or cracks that compromise their integrity can be reinforced and preserved with dental crowns.

After a root canal procedure, we place the dental crown to strengthen the treated tooth, ensuring its longevity.

Dental crowns cover discolored, misshapen, or poorly aligned teeth, enhancing their appearance and creating a harmonious smile.

Dental crowns serve as anchor points for dental bridges, replacing missing teeth and restoring bite functionality.

Types of Dental Crowns

Porcelain crowns are popular for their natural appearance and can be color-matched to adjacent teeth, ensuring a seamless blend within the smile.

Metal crowns, typically made from alloys containing gold, nickel, or chromium, are exceptionally durable and ideal for molars, where strength is paramount.

PFM crowns combine the strength of metal with the aesthetic appeal of porcelain, making them suitable for both front and back teeth.

All-ceramic crowns are renowned for their lifelike appearance and are a preferred choice for highly visible teeth due to their excellent esthetics.

The Dental Crown Process at Southwest Dental

The journey to a restored smile with dental crowns begins with a comprehensive examination at Southwest Dental. Dr. Curtis S. Condie or Dr. Lucas J. Rudelich assesses the condition of your teeth and discusses your goals, determining the most suitable crown material for your specific case.

The procedure generally requires two visits. During the first visit, we prepare the tooth by removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate the crown. We send the impressions to a dental laboratory, where skilled technicians craft your custom crown. While the lab crafts your permanent crown, we place a temporary crown to protect the prepared tooth.

Upon your second visit, we remove the temporary crown, and the custom-made crown is carefully fitted and bonded in place. Our team ensures the crown’s fit, comfort, and appearance, making any necessary adjustments to achieve a natural-looking, functional result.

Caring for Your Dental Crowns

Dental crowns require the same care as natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential to maintain the crowned tooth’s and surrounding teeth’ health. Avoiding habits like chewing on hard objects and grinding your teeth can prolong the lifespan of your dental crowns.
