Dental crowns are false teeth which are designed to cover up and protect a damaged or misshapen tooth. They are made of porcelain, and are applied to your tooth after it has been trimmed, covering up the remaining enamel all the way down to the gumline.
With a dental crown, both the natural appearance of your smile and the natural function of your bite can be restored after one or more of your teeth have been damaged by an oral injury or tooth decay. Primarily, dental crowns are used as a restorative treatment. They are often recommended instead of a filling to treat large cavities, or to replace an old filling that is failing or weak. After root canal therapy, a dental crown will be placed to protect and cover the treated tooth. More rarely, crowns may be used purely for cosmetic purposes to cover up a very small or misshapen tooth, or to cover up a deep tooth stain.
This depends on the location of your dental crown, and the extent of preparation required before the crown can be placed.To get an accurate cost estimate, we recommend contacting the team at Lakeshore Dental Studio for a consultation with Dr. Kella.
In most cases, anyone with a damaged or decayed tooth is a good candidate for a dental crown. Depending on the extent of the damage to your tooth, you may need to undergo root canal therapy before you can have a crown placed. To explore your options, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kella right away.
In most cases, dental crowns can last 15 years or more with proper care. If you brush and floss properly and see Dr. Kella for regular, six-month teeth cleanings, you will be able to keep your mouth healthy, prolonging the lifespan of your crown and preventing the need for a potential future treatments.
