What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a cap that Dr. Doueck attaches to the top of a tooth. This will protect the tooth, restore it to full function, and make it look like new. Your dental crown is custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth so it blends in perfectly with your smile.
When would a patient require a dental crown?
Dental crowns can be used to strengthen or enhance the appearance of a tooth. For example, a crown can restore a tooth that’s been damaged by decay or physical trauma. Crowns can also secure a dental bridge, which is a treatment designed to repair missing teeth.
A crown can be utilized for cosmetic purposes, enhancing the look of a small or poorly-shaped tooth. It’s also an effective remedy for a severely stained tooth that’s resistant to whitening.
How does the dental crown process work?
At your initial appointment, our dentist will prepare your tooth to receive the crown. Using anesthesia, we’ll reshape the tooth to fit the crown. Then we’ll take an impression of the tooth and share this information with our dental lab, so they can start making your new crown right away.
You’ll be provided with a temporary crown to protect the tooth until your new crown is ready.
As soon as we receive your crown, you can return to our office to have it placed. Our dentist will attach your crown using special dental adhesive, making sure it looks just right.
How do I care for a crown?
Crowns can last 10 to 15 years or even longer when given the proper care. You can take care of your crown with daily brushing and flossing and regular checkups at Doueck Dental. This will also allow us to monitor your crown and make sure everything is going fine.
