Are Crowns a Good Solution for You?

A variety of patients have benefitted from dental crowns. This includes adults and children.

Crowns come with many benefits. At Prosper & Smile dental Care, we often recommend this type of dental treatment for our patients who may have:

  • Cracked or decayed teeth
  • Broken or worn down teeth
  • Teeth that have large fillings
  • Misshapen or discolored teeth

In any of these situations, the crown can serve both a functional and a cosmetic purpose. In addition, we may suggest that you look into getting a crown if you have a dental implant or a dental bridge. If you have an implant, the crown would cover it and give your smile a more natural appearance. If you need a bridge put in, a crown could act as a strong anchor for the bridge.

How We Put in Dental Crowns

The process is fairly straightforward. First, Dr. Sisombath will perform a thorough inspection of the tooth that requires the crown. She may look at X-rays to see how your roots are doing. If everything looks good, she'll numb your tooth and the surrounding gum tissue. Then, she'll shape your tooth so that it can better bond to the crown. This may involve removing some of the tooth, or it could involve building it up with filling material. An impression will be taken of the tooth so that the crown can be manufactured. At this point, you may receive a temporary acrylic crown to use for a few weeks. Once the permanent crown is ready, it will be checked for proper fit, and then it will be permanently cemented in place.

Note that there are many types of crowns. We typically recommend all-zirconia or all-porcelain dental crowns because they look natural and are strong and durable. Some other choices are porcelain-fused-to-metal, silver, and gold.
