How do you know if you need a dental crown?

Dental crowns are oftentimes referred to as “caps.” These caps are made to cover the entire visible part of a tooth. This may be done for one of several reasons.

  • Dental crowns may be used to create a dental bridge as a tooth replacement option.
  • Dental crowns may be used over dental implants to act as replacement teeth.
  • Dental crowns may be placed over teeth that have undergone root canal therapy.
  • Dental crowns may be placed onto a tooth that is weak from large dental fillings, which affect the strength and integrity of the natural tooth.
  • A dental crown may be placed over a tooth that has experienced trauma or is permanently stained and impacting the appearance of the smile.

If patients are dealing with any of the above situations, they may benefit from having dental crowns put in place over the natural teeth.

What should I expect when it comes to obtaining a dental crown?

First, Dr. Kalantari will evaluate the patient’s smile to determine if a crown would be beneficial. Then, preparations begin. This includes removing a portion of the enamel from the tooth. Impressions are made and sent with specific instructions to a ceramist in a laboratory. The restoration is then made to the patient’s needs, including the final shape, color, and size. A temporary crown is bonded in place until the final crown is finished and sent to the dental office. This is typically within a week or two. Patients then come back to the office to remove the temporary and cement the final restoration in place. Patients are given specific instructions on the care of dental crowns to extend their longevity.

How to care for dental crowns

Crowns should be cared for in the same ways as any other teeth. Patients should brush and floss after every meal. They should also visit the dental practice on a routine basis. The American Dental Association recommends that patients schedule a cleaning and examination every six months. Additionally, patients should make an appointment with their dentist the minute they suspect something is wrong with their smile. Dental crowns cover the natural tooth, but this doesn’t keep it from developing periodontal disease or tooth decay. During an evaluation, x-rays can be used to check the health of the teeth under dental crowns.

What alternatives are available?

The type of alternative available for patients will vary, depending on the dental concern they need to resolve.  A patient who wants to address the aesthetics of the natural tooth can ask their dentist about the possibility of a porcelain veneer. Composite resin bonding may also be a solution, depending on where the problem occurs. For patients who need to replace missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used instead of a dental bridge. It is best that patients consult with their dentist to determine the type of restoration needed for the smile. Dr. Kalantari works closely with patients to ensure they obtain the dental care they need and can be evaluated for the best options.
