Dental Crowns

Protect and Save Badly Decayed or Fractured Teeth

Dental crowns are the best solution for people with badly damaged teeth. If the tooth is significantly decayed or has wide or deep cavities, fractures, chip, or root canals, we may need to restore it with a dental crown. On the other hand, in the case of the entire tooth or parts of the tooth being lost, you would need a different procedure such as a composite filling.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a covering for a damaged or decayed tooth. It is a hollow, artificial tooth that helps to restore the affected tooth and keep it from more damage or decay. Dental crowns are also great for misshapen and discolored teeth.

A dental crown is an indirect restoration procedure. We make crowns fitting for your dentition in our dental lab and cover the affected tooth with it, ensuring that it reaches the gum line. When the crown is inserted, the feel and look of the tooth remain the same. It also works like your natural tooth, so there should be no reason for you to worry. Due to their nature, dental crowns are also called caps.

Do you need a dental crown?

Most people who need a dental crown will experience a toothache. The ache is caused by cavities, fractures, or other severe tooth conditions.
Crowns are often the best option for people with heavily restored teeth, cracks, fractures, permanent stains, bridges, and significant decay. Heavily restored teeth with multiple surface fillings often require full coverage with a crown to protect against future fracture of the remaining vulnerable enamel. When cavities and infection go untreated, they can eventually cause enough damage to the structure of a tooth that a regular filling isn’t enough to repair the damage. Teeth that have been fractured as a result of an injury or accident also need to be covered and protected, usually with a crown.

Once we have determined that you need a dental crown, we will take impressions of your tooth. Our lab professional will use these impressions to create a fitting crown for your dentition.

What are the kinds of crowns?

When you are in consultation with us, you’ll be able to choose from four kinds of crowns which include metal crowns, composite crowns, porcelain crowns, and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.

Metal Crowns

These are made of gold and don’t break or chip. They are durable and do not burden your natural tooth.

Composite crowns

These are natural looking as they are made from tooth-colored material. They don’t chip easily when compared to porcelain crowns but may need a change faster from frequent chewing. They might also get stained after a while as the top surface wears away from brushing.

Porcelain crowns

These are more natural looking but they may chip. If you’re using a porcelain crown, we’ll usually place them on front teeth alone as they may wear around molars and premolars.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns

These are stronger than composite and porcelain crowns and have a great natural look. They are also hard to chip or break. We design these with our usual care patterns to ensure that the metals aren’t visible underneath your gums.

Dental crowns can last up to ten years making them a very viable option for many tooth conditions. How long they last usually depends on how you take care of them. You should pay attention to them just like you would your natural tooth, ensuring that you brush and floss regularly.
