What is a Dental Crown?

A crown refers to a dental cap, a type of restorative dentistry technique that entirely caps or encases a tooth or denture implant.

Dental concrete is used to adhere a crown to the dentition. They are made out of various substances typically designed and manufactured through indirect methods like tooth impressions.

Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns come in various materials and are chosen based on the location and damage of the tooth.

Stainless steel crowns are commonly used for baby teeth. They don't necessitate multiple dental appointments. Precast stainless steel crowns are preferably used on adult teeth mainly as a temporary course.

For kids, a stainless steel crown is popularly used to encase a primary tooth and has been ready to custom fit it.

Metal alloys with a high gold or platinum content and base-metal composites are used in metal crowns. Metal crowns are the most resistant to biting and chewing forces, and they are also the most durable in terms of wear.

Metal crowns also have a low chance of breaking or chipping. The main setback is the metallic color and the high cost of gold.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are the most natural-looking alternative to all-ceramic crowns. Dental crowns made of porcelain fused with metal can be color-matched to your other teeth.

However, in comparison to metal or resin crowns, this crown type causes more wear to the opposing teeth. The porcelain portion of the crown is also susceptible to chipping and breaking.

All-ceramic and all-porcelain crowns have a better natural color fit to natural teeth than other crown types and may be preferable for people who are allergic to metals.

Both front and back teeth can benefit from all ceramic and all-porcelain crowns.

Dental Crown FAQ

Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?

Your teeth can become damaged over time.

This can occur for several reasons, including dental caries, trauma, or regular use. Your tooth shape and size can deteriorate. You would need a root canal to protect a frail and decayed tooth from breaking.

Dental crowns help restore a tooth that has been cracked or gravely damaged to cover and support a tooth with little left using a large filling.

Crowns are also used on a dental bridge to keep it in place and cover teeth that are disfigured or severely stained.

How Do Crowns Work Together with Dental Implants?

Dental implants and teeth that have undergone root canal treatments also require crowns to coat or cap them. They are also used to make aesthetic adjustments to teeth.

How Long Does it Take to Get a Crown?

Crown placement usually takes a day to complete.

After a tooth is prepared, either by an implant or root canal, a temporary crown is placed to await the modeling of a permanent one. After the height is reached, a patient will be sedated and the quick material removed. The tooth is prepped, and the crown is installed.

To retain the crown in place, special dental concrete is used.
