If you have just undergone a root canal or need to repair one or more missing teeth, a dental crown may be suggested to restore your smile. When a dental filling is insufficient, dental crowns composed of durable, tooth-colored porcelain fit over the tooth’s surface to act as a protective barrier. Moreover, they can be utilized to secure a dental implant, a denture, or a bridge. Dr. Allie Jones encourage new and returning patients to learn about their treatment options if their oral health has altered, regardless of their dental needs. Make an appointment with your family dentist in Big Bend by calling (262) 662-1111 and ask about our restorative dental services.

What is a crown and how does it function?

A dental crown, sometimes known as a “cap,” is a tooth replacement that covers the entire visible surface of a damaged tooth or affixes to a dental bridge or implant. Dental crowns, which are typically used to repair a tooth after root canal therapy, provide strength to a damaged tooth while maintaining its natural appearance. In conjunction with a dental implant or bridge, they effectively replace one or more missing teeth for a smile that looks and feels natural.

Benefits of Dental Crown

In contrast to dental fillings, dental crowns encompass the entire damaged tooth and can be used to replace missing teeth with implants or bridges. Those with significant evidence of tooth decay, damage, or a dental injury can benefit from a dental crown in the following ways:

  • Seals and improves the appearance of a discolored or poorly shaped tooth when a large dental filling is insufficient.
  • May be used to restore a tooth after root canal therapy.
  • Fixes a broken, shattered, or chipped tooth.
  • Can be used to cover a dental implant or attach a bridge.

Your Consultation for a Dental Crown

At your appointment, an imprint of your teeth will be taken to serve as a template for the crown that will best suit your needs. The optimal shape, color, and size of the new crown can be debated based on this mold, which can be customized to suit your preferences. If you have had a root canal or have dental decay or injury, you may utilize a temporary crown while the new crown is being created. After cleaning and correcting the permanent dental crown, it is carefully placed in the mouth so that it appears and feels like healthy, natural teeth.
