What is a Dental Crown and How Does It Work?
A crown is a permanent dental structure or cap that covers the whole surface of a tooth, making it look, feel and function like natural teeth. A crown can strengthen the original tooth, restore its size and shape, preserve the remaining tooth, improve its looks and last longer than other restorative dental methods such as fillings or composite bonding. People may need a crown to:
- Repair a broken, worn or cracked tooth
- Cover defective teeth or a dental implant
- Cap a tooth with a substantial filling
- Secure a dental bridge
- Complete a cosmetic dental procedure
Dental crowns are constructed from various materials, including gold, stainless steel, ceramics, porcelain and metal and resins. Installation of a crown generally takes two separate office visits. During the first visit, your tooth will be prepared to accept a crown by either filed down or filling. Impressions will be taken to construct the permanent crown in a lab. Meanwhile, a temporary crown will be placed on the tooth until the second visit, when the permanent crown is set and adjusted.
