What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is, essentially, a false tooth that is designed to cover and protect all of your remaining enamel. They are typically used to treat issues like large cavities, cracked and damaged teeth, or to restore teeth that have been treated with root canal therapy.
Most dental crowns are made of porcelain ceramic materials, which are very durable and help protect the remaining tooth structure. Porcelain also looks just like your natural tooth structure and has a similar hardness.
Your dental crown will look and feel just like a natural tooth. To prepare for crown placement, the remaining tooth structure will be trimmed and prepared for the crown. Then, the crown will be bonded to your tooth, covering your natural tooth all the way down to the gumline and protecting it from further damage.
Understanding the Crown Placement Process
Dr. Alexandra Cristescu will begin by numbing your mouth and cleaning the treatment area. You can also be sedated if you wish. Then, she will use a dental drill to remove any damaged or decayed enamel from your tooth. She will shape it into a strong, stable platform to which your crown can be attached.
Once your tooth has been prepared, Dr. Cristescu will take impressions and images of your teeth, and send them to a dental lab where your crown will be built. This takes several weeks, so she will place a temporary crown on your newly-trimmed tooth, and you will be sent home.
After your permanent crown arrives at our office, you will come in for your final appointment. Dr. Cristescu will check the crown to make sure the fit is perfect, then she will bond it into place permanently, completing the procedure.
