What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown, often referred to as a cap, is a tooth-shaped covering that encases the upper portion of a tooth above the gumline. These custom-made crowns are designed to fit seamlessly into your smile, with options to match the shade of your natural teeth for aesthetic harmony.

What is the Purpose of a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns serve multiple functions, including strengthening and protecting teeth in cases of:

  • Fractures or breaks
  • Extensive decay
  • Large fillings or fractured fillings
  • Post-root canal treatment

Dr. Krish frequently recommends crowns post-root canal to enhance protection and restore tooth strength.

In addition to their functional role, dental crowns also offer cosmetic benefits. They can improve the appearance of discolored, misshapen, or unsightly teeth, giving you a beautiful and flawless smile.

What Are Dental Crowns Made From?

Dental crowns can be crafted from various materials, including silver amalgam, cast gold, porcelain, and Empress® restorations. Empress crowns, known for their strength and durability, use biocompatible materials that can be color-matched to your natural tooth enamel, providing a lifelike appearance.

The Dental Crown Procedure:

Getting a dental crown typically involves two appointments:

  1. Preparation: During your first appointment, Dr. Boado prepares the tooth by removing some enamel and takes impressions. These impressions are sent to a dental laboratory for crown fabrication.
  2. Placement: In the second appointment, the permanent crown is permanently secured onto your tooth. In the meantime, you'll wear a temporary crown to protect your tooth while awaiting the completion of the permanent restoration, which usually takes approximately two weeks.
