Dental Crowns

Tooth crowns serve as dental caps, covering dental implants, tooth wear, and large regions of dental damage. Crowns are composed of long-lasting porcelain ceramic that blends in with the rest of the grin. In comparison to metal-based crowns, our porcelain ceramic crowns appear and feel more like real teeth. Dental crowns can be provided by our professional dental team at Bell Dental Care. Dental crowns aid patients who have worn or weakened teeth, as well as tooth discoloration or injury.

What Are Dental Crowns Made of?

Dental crowns are made from a variety of materials, including porcelain fused to metal, metal alloys, ceramics, composite resin, and porcelain. Crowns are typically tinted to match the color of your natural teeth.

When Do You Need a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is used to repair a tooth in the following situations:

  • To improve your smile by concealing a badly shaped or stained tooth.
  • To keep a weak tooth from decaying, breaking, or cracking
  • If you underwent a root canal procedure, you should wear a mouth guard to safeguard the recovered tooth.
  • To repair a cracked tooth
  • To treat a cavity that is too large to be filled with a filler
  • To secure a dental bridge in place To create a cosmetic change

The Procedure for Placing a Crown

Our dentist prepares the tooth for the crown by removing the outer portion of the tooth, including any decay. If a more dental structure is required to support the crown, your dentist may build up the tooth's core.

An impression is taken of your teeth to make an exact model of it. A mold can be used to generate an impression, or the teeth can be digitally scanned to create an impression.

While the permanent crown is being made, a temporary crown is placed to safeguard your tooth. In most cases, the permanent crown is completed in less than two weeks. Your tooth may be sensitive to hot and cold conditions while wearing a temporary crown. If your dentist has the necessary equipment, you may be able to have your permanent crown the same day.

When the permanent crown is finished, our dentist will place it in your mouth and make any necessary adjustments. Once you and our dentist are satisfied with how it looks and feels, the crown is placed.
