DENTAL CROWNS

WHAT IS A DENTAL CROWN?

 

  • Dental crown is a 'cap' that is put over a tooth to restore the tooth to normal function,size, and look.

 

  • Crown can be made out of several different materials:
  1. Metal alloy 
  2. Porcelain
  3. Ceramic
  4. Zarconia
  5. Porcelain or ceramic fused to the metal alloy
  6. Porcelain fused to the zarconia

 

  • Most crown prosthesis made by Dr. Young are non-metal crowns, and come with a 5-year warranty that the materials are free of defects.

 

 

WHEN DOES A TOOTH NEED TO BE CROWNED?

  • A tooth that has just received root canal therapy

  •  A tooth that has a significant crack to cause persistent sensitivity 

  • A tooth that had lost most of its tooth structures to decay so that it cannot be restored with a routine filling successfully

  • A tooth that is severely discolored

 

 

PROCESS OF MAKING YOUR CROWN

  • All the enamel and part of the dentin will be removed all around the tooth that is to receive a dental prosthetic crown.

  • An impression of the tooth will be made either using the mold or digital scan.

  • An interim (temporary) crown or bridge will be placed on the tooth to protect the tooth while the permanent crown is being fabricated by a professional dental laboratory. This can take up to two weeks.

  • When the final crown is ready, your dentist will place it on the tooth, make necessary adjustments, and cement with a dental cement.
