Dental Crown FAQs
What are dental crowns used for?
Dental crowns can fix a cracked or broken tooth, cover a misshapen or discolored tooth. Crowns can also serve as the final restoration for dental implants, or stabilize teeth that have gone through a root canal.
What are dental crowns made of?
Dental crowns are made specifically to blend in with your natural smile, while also being durable. They are made of porcelain dental ceramic that can be color-matched to the rest of your smile. Porcelain reflects light for a natural-looking end-result.
What is the dental crown process?
Our dentists will do a full examination of your teeth before treatment to make sure that a dental crown is a proper treatment for your issue. Then, the tooth has to be cleaned and shaped. A small amount of material has to be removed from the outside of the tooth so that there’s ample room for the crown. We will fit you with a temporary crown while a custom one is made for you. Dental impressions are taken of teeth so that the crown fits with the rest of your smile and blends in well with natural teeth.
How do I take care of dental crowns?
If you take care of dental crowns, they can last for 30 years. Brush and floss regularly, and be sure to make with routine visits to Vassey Dental Partners.
