What are the benefits of dental crowns?
Dental crowns can strengthen worn or weakened teeth, restore the shape of teeth, protect injured teeth, and cover stained teeth. Because our crowns are made of porcelain ceramic, they may be color-matched to natural teeth. Tooth crowns are also durable and easily take the chewing forces of other teeth in the mouth.
How long do dental crowns last?
With the right care, dental crowns can last for over 30 years. To maintain your crowns, gently brush and floss your teeth on a regular basis. Schedule routine dental appointments so we can remove bacteria from your dental crowns and natural teeth. Patients can still develop gum disease or tooth decay even if they have dental crowns. It is important to maintain the health of your crowns and natural teeth.
Is the dental crown treatment painful?
No, patients do not feel any pain during the dental crown procedure. We numb the treated teeth and will also provide you with pain medication as you heal.
How long is the dental crown procedure?
Dental crown treatment is not lengthy. It should take 50 to 90 minutes for us to apply the crowns to your teeth. However, it will take several visits. The first visit is a consultation where we plan your treatment. We take dental impressions at the second visit and apply the crowns at the third.
Can I get a dental crown after my root canal?
Yes, sometimes we will recommend dental crowns following the root canal procedure. During a root canal, we remove infected tissue from the inside of the tooth. Then, we seal off the tooth. For patients with weakened or worn teeth, we will recommend a dental crown. Dental crowns add strength to the smile and create a more even bite.
