What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are cap-shaped structures that are customized to fit over the biting surface of the tooth above the gumline. They are made from a variety of different materials, like gold, ceramic, porcelain, and several others depending on the budget and needs of the patient. Crowns can be used for numerous different things, and they are recommended for teeth that are:
- Severely decayed
- Broken or cracked
- Repaired with root canal therapy
- Missing and replaced with a dental implant
- Replaced by a dental bridge
- Misshapen or severely discolored
When you come into the office, we’ll discuss all of your treatment options to ensure that you have all of the necessary information to make the best decision for your oral health.
The Process of Getting a Dental Crown
Getting a dental crown typically takes places over a few appointments. When you first come to the office, Dr. Plasha will examine your smile to ensure that a dental crown is the best way to treat your tooth. A thin layer of enamel will be removed to allow room for the crown to fit comfortably between your teeth. An impression is then taken of your tooth and the gumline which will be sent off to the dental laboratory that creates your restoration. Once your permanent crown is ready, you will be called back into the office, but in the meantime, we will provide you with a temporary crown. Our team will show you how to properly care for your crown so you can enjoy the benefits for many years down the road.

- Improved comfort
