Dental Crown

Dental crowns are caps that are put on top of injured, decayed, or damaged teeth. They are mainly for restoring the shape, size, and strength of a tooth after filling fails to solve the problem. Crowns also help to enhance your appearance and smile. Dental crowns don't need any special care other than practicing good oral hygiene. They are made of resin, porcelain, metals, and ceramics. If you have a cracked or injured tooth, visit RJ Dental for your placing dental crowns.

Why is a Dental Crown Necessary?

A dental crown is essential as it prevents a weak tooth from breaking or holding in place parts of a cracked tooth. It also helps to restore a broken tooth or a severely worn-out tooth. Besides, crowns play a vital role in supporting and covering a tooth with a big filling, where only a small part of the tooth is left. In addition, the crown holds the dental bridge in place and covers the dental implant. It is also used to create a cosmetic modification and protects a seriously discolored tooth. Crowns are ideal for protecting children's teeth that are at a high risk of decay.

Types of Dental Crowns Available

Dental crowns are available in different types, including metal crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFTM), all-resin, and all-ceramic crowns. Metal crowns are made of metals such as gold, nickel, platinum, stainless steel, copper, and chromium. These crowns are long-lasting as they fit perfectly on your tooth without fracturing. They also withstand chewing and biting forces.

Porcelain-fused-to-metals are dental crowns that match your tooth color, increasing functionality and aesthetics. They look more natural than other types of crowns, but the metal below the crown's porcelain shows through as a dark line. However, these crowns wear more compared to other crowns; they can break or chip off easily. They can be used for front or back teeth.

All resin crowns are less expensive and less durable. They are more prone to fractures than other types of crowns. On the other hand, all-ceramic dental crowns are ideal for people with metal allergies. They offer an excellent natural color blend compared to the other types of crowns.

Dental Crown Placement Procedure

You will need to visit our dentist twice to prepare your tooth for crown placement. The first visit involves preparing and examining the tooth, while the second visit is the permanent placement of the crown. During tooth preparation, the dentist will remove any decay from your tooth via a root canal. The dentist will then polish your tooth's outer portion to ensure the crown fits properly. The dentist will then take the impressions of your tooth to the dental lab to ensure you get the exact crown model. The dentist will put a temporary crown on your tooth and you will go home.

You will come for the second visit after two to three weeks. Your tooth may be sensitive to cold and hot food and drinks during this waiting period. Ensure you avoid eating or biting hard foods. When visiting for the second time, the dentist will permanently place the crown on your tooth.
