What Are Dental Crowns?

3 min read

A confident smile can make a significant impact on our overall appearance and self-esteem. However, dental issues such as damaged, discoloured, or misshapen teeth can hinder our ability to showcase our best smiles. Fortunately, modern dentistry offers a range of solutions to restore and enhance the beauty of our teeth. One such solution is dental crowns. 


Understanding Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as tooth caps or dental caps, are custom-made restorations designed to encase damaged or weakened teeth. They are shaped and coloured to match the natural appearance of your teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result. Dental crowns offer both cosmetic enhancement and functional support to improve the appearance and strength of your teeth.


What Are Dental Crowns?


When are Dental Crowns Needed

Dental crowns are recommended for various dental conditions, including:

Cracked or Fractured Teeth: When a tooth is severely cracked or fractured, a dental crown can protect and strengthen it, preventing further damage.

Severe Tooth Decay: Dental crowns can restore teeth with extensive decay that cannot be repaired with traditional fillings.

Root Canal Treatment: Following a root canal procedure, a dental crown is often placed to protect the treated tooth and restore its functionality.

Misshapen or Discolored Teeth: Dental crowns can improve the appearance of teeth that are misshapen, severely discoloured, or have cosmetic imperfections.

Dental Bridge Support: Dental crowns are used as anchors for dental bridges, which replace missing teeth by bridging the gap between adjacent healthy teeth.


The Dental Crown Procedure

The process of getting a dental crown typically involves multiple steps:

Evaluation and Treatment Planning: Your dentist at Admire Dentistry will assess your dental condition and discuss the treatment plan with you, taking into consideration your specific needs and goals.

Tooth Preparation: The affected tooth is prepared by removing a small amount of enamel to make room for the dental crown.

Impressions: Precise impressions of your prepared tooth are taken to create a custom crown that fits perfectly with your bite and aligns with the surrounding teeth.

Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown is placed to protect the prepared tooth.

Crown Placement: Once your custom crown is ready, it is bonded to the prepared tooth using dental cement, ensuring a secure and long-lasting restoration.
