Crowns

Crowns

Crowns or Caps are a way to make weak teeth strong again.  If there is not enough quality tooth remaining to hold a filling, then a crown is needed.  A crown is like a helmet on a head.  It goes over the prepared tooth and protects the natural tooth.

 

Today's crowns look and feel like natural teeth.  They can be made from different materials, but usually we choose a non-metal, all porcelain material that is very strong and looks good.  Crowns can be made in a two appointment procedure. In the two appointment procedure, an impression of your tooth is taken and sent to a dental ceramist.  A temporary crown is made and a return appointment is made for about ten days. There are different reasons to choose one type over the other, and it will be explained at your dental appointment.  Crowns can last as long as natural teeth, but you still have to take care of them.  Decay can still get under the crown if not properly cared for.
