What is a Crown?

A crown is a dental prosthetic that can restore the shape, size, and function of a tooth. If your tooth suffers from severe damage, a crown is a widely used treatment to preserve and repair your smile.. It covers the entire tooth, protecting the vulnerable parts from bacterial infection. We provide natural-looking crowns that protect your smile.

Why You May Need a Crown

Crowns are highly versatile and address a wide variety of dental issues. We may recommend one for:

  • Restoring a tooth with severe decay
  • Repairing cracked or broken tooth
  • Replacing a worn out or misshapen tooth
  • Completing a single dental implant
  • Enhancing a tooth’s appearance
  • Finishing a root canal therapy to save an infected tooth

The Crown Process

At the first visit our dentist examines your mouth and determines your dental needs. If you qualify for a crown, we use special tools to shape your tooth and then take impressions. We send these impressions to the dental lab where they will craft your personalized crown. The lab takes 10-14 days to have your restoration ready. During this time, you’ll wear a temporary crown.

At your second visit, we will affix your custom crown in place with dental cement and make any needed adjustments to ensure an ideal fit.

Care Instructions for Dental Crowns

Crowns need to be cared for, just like your natural teeth. It is essential to realize that the tooth underneath the crown is still vulnerable to decay.

Below are care instructions to help you protect your crown and tooth from damage:

  • Brush and floss twice a day
  • Avoid chewing hard and sticky foods
  • Visit us for professional exams and cleanings twice a year

Can Crowns Fall Out?

Yes, it is possible. Even though crowns are sturdy restorations that can last for decades, accidents happen. If your crown comes off due to grinding or accident, our team at Shadow Ridge Dental will help.

What If My Crown is Damaged?

If this happens, the first thing you need to do is reach out to our office and schedule an appointment. During this appointment, we will determine if we can fix your crown or if it needs to be replaced. Either way, we will ensure full functionality and aesthetics are restored. We will recommend the most conservative treatment and never pressure you into unnecessary procedures.

Until you can see our dentist, here is what you can do:

  • Avoid eating any hard or chewy foods until your crown is fixed or replaced
  • If you have the crown, place it in a towel or wet gauze and bring it with you
  • If the area is sensitive, apply a dental adhesive, available in local pharmacies, to protect the exposed area

Crowns for Implant Restorations

Crowns can replace a missing tooth with a single dental implant. They can also be combined with a bridge to fill gaps left by missing teeth and give you back your complete smile.

Can I Whiten a Crown?

Porcelain is a stain-resistant material. If you want a brighter smile, we can offer you teeth whitening before placing your crown. Once you have the color you desire, you can choose a crown that matches your new brighter teeth.
