What You Need to Know About Dental Crowns

You may be wondering why Dr. Z has suggested that you get a dental crown. If so, the following are some of the more common reasons that a dental crown might be recommended:

  • Dental crowns are used to protect a tooth that has been weakened by decay or breakage.
  • A dental crown is used to prevent future damage to the tooth.
  • Dental crowns strengthen and reinforce teeth that are excessively worn.
  • When a filling is too big or will not provide enough support to a decayed tooth, a crown is used to reinforce the tooth.
  • Crowns are required to support a dental bridge
  • Crowns are used to cover a tooth that’s discolored or misshaped
  • Crowns also cover dental implants.

The Dental Crown Procedure

The procedure to place a dental crown typically occurs over two appointments at SS Dental and the appointments are usually just two weeks apart.

During your first visit to our office, Dr. Z will prepare your tooth to receive the crown at your following appointment. This preparation includes the removal of any damage or decay to the affected tooth, as well as the removal of some of the tooth’s enamel. Next, impressions of your mouth will be taken and used as a model to form the crown. A temporary crown will then be placed until your permanent crown is ready.

On your next appointment, your permanent dental crown will be placed and adjusted to assure a perfect fit. From there, you can return back to work or resume your normal activities since there is little pain associated with this final procedure.
