What is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns, as you might have guessed based on the name, are dental restorations that sit over the top of a damaged tooth – like a crown. Crowns are crafted to perform two roles in dental restoration. First, they repair and replace the lost tooth structure to recreate your bite’s proper function and alignment. Second, dental crowns protect your remaining tooth structures from additional damage or decay, preserving the remaining healthy parts of the tooth.

The Dental Crown Process

Most dental crowns are placed in two visits to our dental office. At your first appointment, we’ll prepare your tooth or teeth by removing any damaged structures and shaping the tooth to accommodate the space taken up by a dental crown. Once your teeth are prepared, we’ll take impressions that’ll be used by our dental lab to craft your dental cap. Before you leave, we’ll place a temporary crown to protect your prepared tooth until your high-quality final restoration is complete.

When the dental crown is returned from the lab, you’ll come back to see us for your second appointment. This shorter visit is simple. We’ll remove your temporary one and replace it with the custom restoration. Our team will double-check that it fits perfectly, your bite is correct, and you’re satisfied with the results. If so, you’ll be free to leave the dental office to enjoy your beautiful smile.
