What is a dental crown?
A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that is placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, strength and appearance. Crowns are custom-made to fit your teeth and smile perfectly and protect the treated teeth from sustaining any additional damage in the future.
When are crowns recommended?
Crowns are recommended to:
- Restore teeth which are severely decayed, cracked or fractured and cannot be effectively restored with a filling.
- Protect a weakened tooth after a root canal treatment.
- Anchor and support a dental bridge.
- Cap and complete a dental implant.
- Enhance the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth.
How long does it take to complete a dental crown treatment?
Dental crown treatment typically takes two visits with our dentist to complete. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared, and impressions are taken to create a custom crown. A temporary crown is placed over the tooth to protect it between appointments. The second visit involves the removal of the temporary crown and the placement of the permanent crown, which usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour.
