What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, or tooth crowns, act as functional tooth-shaped caps for damaged or decayed teeth. Our crowns cover your damaged tooth, fortifying and restoring function while enhancing your smile's aesthetic appeal. We frequently place crowns made with advanced porcelain materials that provide a beautiful luster and a natural look. Porcelain crowns are highly versatile and can be fitted anywhere in your mouth, from front teeth to molars. However, we can place gold crowns if you desire.

What is the Process for Getting a Tooth Crown?

Getting a dental crown at Friedl Dentistry is a straightforward process. Our team will discuss your goals and give you the information you need to feel confident about your restorative procedure. By the end of the process, you'll have a beautiful dental crown that completes your smile. We generally break it down into three phases:

  • Oral Exam: We conduct a comprehensive oral exam at your initial consultation, including a close look at the problematic tooth or teeth and the adjacent structures. Advanced diagnostic tools, like digital x-rays, are often employed to provide a detailed picture, enabling us to decide if a crown is your best option.
  • Cleaning, Repair & Temporary Crown: Should your tooth be suitable for repair with a dental crown, it is cleaned and prepped. We then create precise impressions to send to a trusted lab, where they'll begin crafting your permanent tooth crown.
  • Permanent Dental Crown Placement: Our dental laboratory typically has a turnaround of 10 business days. You'll return for a placement appointment once we receive your crown at our practice. We carefully remove your temporary crown and use advanced dental cement to attach the permanent crown to your damaged tooth, creating a strong and lasting bond.

Compassionate Emergency Crowns

It can be stressful when you find yourself in a situation requiring a crown. Whether you need root canal therapy or have experienced dental trauma, we're here to assist with emergency dental services. We strive to provide same-day appointments in cases of cracked or broken teeth and tooth infections requiring root canal treatment. Our dentist will discuss whether a filling or crown is the right choice for strengthening your tooth.

We'll work to get you out of pain, and, depending on the extent of the injury or infection we treat, we'll place various temporary restorations to protect your tooth until your permanent restoration is created. Our caring team works hard so you can get back to living life normally.

Caring for Your New Crown

Post-procedure care is very important for extending the longevity of your new crown. We're always available to answer questions after placing your crown, and we'll provide detailed information about post-placement care. Here are some tips for maintaining your new restoration:

  • Good Oral Hygiene: Brushing and flossing are vital for caring for your crown. Even though your tooth crown isn't a natural tooth, brushing around it will keep gums healthy and free from food particles that can lead to bacterial growth.
  • Wearing a Mouthguard: When participating in sports, a mouthguard can protect your crown and natural teeth.
  • Avoid Certain Foods: Avoid hard, crunchy, or sticky foods that can compromise the integrity of your crown.

Dental Crown FAQs

Choosing a dental practice for a tooth crown is a significant decision. We want you to feel assured and informed about your care and always remain available to answer your questions and address your concerns. Some common questions we receive are:

Does getting a dental crown hurt?

No. Our dentist will take the appropriate measures to keep your tooth numb and maximize your comfort during the process. You may feel sore after the numbing agent wears off, but this discomfort should go away within a couple of days.

Dental crowns are durable and stand up to daily use well. However, over time, they will become worn down and need replacing. With proper care and routine visits to our practice, you can expect a dental crown to last from 5-15 years.

Coverage for dental crowns varies depending on the specific program and your case. We would be happy to assist you in understanding what is covered under your specific program and can guide you through the process to ensure you get the most out of your benefits.
