Crown Q & A

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that’s placed over your tooth to restore it. If your tooth is broken, chipped, or cracked, dental crowns can restore its shape, size, and strength, as well as improve its overall appearance.

This procedure involves removing a layer of the outer surface of the tooth and preparing it to fit the ideal shape for the crown. When your dental crown is fully cemented into place, it’ll cover the visible portion of your tooth above the gum line.

At Wellness Dental, we’ll also match the color of the crown to your teeth, so it looks as natural as possible. Modern technology allows for quicker, safer, and more comfortable procedures to fit a dental crown.

Why would I need a dental crown?

At your dental visit, we’ll assess your needs and advise you accordingly. A dental crown might be recommended:

  • To cover a dental implant
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To protect and restore a weak, broken, or chipped tooth
  • If you have a large filling without enough tooth left to hold the filling in place
  • To cover up and improve the appearance of a badly shaped or discolored tooth

What can I expect after I get a dental crown?

It’s important to keep the crown clean and treat it as you would your normal teeth, with regular cleanings and preventive care.

While the crown can’t decay, decay can begin at the edge of the crown where it joins your tooth, and this can escalate into a more involved dental health complication that requires medical attention.

To keep your teeth as clean as possible, brush twice a day and floss regularly. How long your crown lasts depends on how well you look after it.

Our Wellness dentists can provide you with all the necessary information and prepare you for getting your dental crown. Crowns can drastically improve the cosmetic look of your teeth.
