How Do Dental Crowns Work?
Dental crowns are designed to rebuild the natural shape, size, durability, and aesthetic appearance of teeth that are imperfect in some way. They cover the entire visible structure (effectively “capping” it), which also protects what remains of the original tooth. Dr. Tran will help you decide which material is best for your customized dental crown based on your personal preferences and the location of the tooth. Possible options include dental porcelain, stainless steel, composite resin, and gold.
The Dental Crown Process
Since our team offers same-day dental crowns, restoring your smile is quicker and more convenient than ever before! After using digital X-rays to inspect the tooth’s natural roots, any surrounding bone, and other important details, our skilled dentist in Covina will determine the next best steps. Whether you simply need a dental crown or you need a root canal first, Dr. Tran will numb the tooth and the gum tissue around it before making adjustments to its natural shape. Our goal is to file away enough enamel to accommodate the eventual placement of the crown.
Then, it will be time to create a detailed impression of the patient’s tooth. From there, our in-house milling machine will meticulously create your custom dental crown. Although the results are extremely precise, it doesn’t take long to complete, ensuring the entire treatment can be completed in a single visit. Once it’s ready, our team will permanently cement the crown in place. You will leave that day with a smile that is stronger, healthier, and more attractive!
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Crowns?
If you are experiencing any of the following dental problems or concerns, be sure to let Dr. Tran know. It’s likely that a dental crown will correct the issue.
- A tooth that is broken, badly chipped, or significantly worn-down
- A tooth that is severely stained or misshapen
- A tooth that doesn’t have much natural structure left, most of it being replaced by filling material
- A tooth that is heavily weakened and has a high risk for additional fracturing/tooth decay
- A dental implant that’s in need of a custom-made dental crown
- A tooth that is in need of serious cosmetic modification
What Are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns have been, and continue to be, one of the most sought-after restorative dentistry treatments. In addition to being reliable, safe, and effective, here are a few additional benefits:
- Enhanced chewing ability
- Protect weakened teeth from further damage
- 15+ year lifespan (with proper maintenance)
- Available in a variety of lifelike shades
- Complete personalization ensures a comfortable fit
How Do I Care for My Dental Crown at Home?
Once you have a permanent dental crown securely in place, it can be treated like a normal tooth for the most part. Brush twice a day, floss once a day, and rinse regularly with an antibacterial mouthwash. As long as the patient practices regular oral hygiene and doesn’t suffer from habitual teeth grinding/clenching, their new restoration should last for 5-15 years or even longer.
