Tooth Crown
Tucker, GA

Rendering of jaw with tooth crown at Reich Dental Center - Tucker in GAYou may be wondering "...exactly what is a dental crown?"

A dental crown, also called a tooth crown, is a covering, or cap, fitted to a broken, cracked, or decaying tooth.

Our dentists use a crown to restore the tooth's size, form, and strength after a filling cannot fix the issue. Crowns make your teeth more aesthetically pleasing and enhance your smile.

The main benefit of these coverings is that they don't require extra care. Your crowns will remain healthy by brushing twice a day and flossing once daily.

Crowns are typically made from metals, resin, ceramic, and porcelain.

What Are the Benefits of a Tooth Crown?

There are many benefits associated with dental crown procedures.

•  they prevent brittle teeth from breaking and hold fragments of broken teeth in place.

•  They also aid in restoring teeth that have been severely injured or worn out.

•  They aid in protecting and supporting a tooth with a large filling when only a little portion of the original tooth structure is remaining.

•  Normal tooth crowns are also used to shield an implant and support a bridge.

•  Crowns change the tooth's appearance in a positive way.

•  Children's teeth, which are susceptible to decay, can be protected with crowns.

What Are Tooth Crowns Made Of?

Crowns come in a variety of materials, including metal, all-ceramic, all-resin, and porcelain-fused-to-metal.

•  Some of the metals used to manufacture crowns include copper, platinum, nickel, gold, chromium, and stainless steel. Metal crowns can withstand chewing and biting forces since they are durable, strong, and resistant to breakage.

•  All-ceramic crowns are the best choice for people allergic to metal. They have a stunning, natural color that perfectly complements your teeth.

•  On the other hand, all-resin crowns are inexpensive and don't last for an extended period like metal crowns. Also, they are more prone to breakages than other types of crowns.

•  Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns replicate your tooth color, improving aesthetics and functionality. Even though they lose their potency more rapidly, they look more authentic than traditional normal crowns. In addition, there is a black line running along the porcelain behind the crown. These crowns are appropriate for the rear or front teeth and are vulnerable to cracking or chipping.

What Happens During the Crown Placement Procedure?

Getting a tooth crown might involve one or more additional procedures, such as a root canal, and one or more appointments, depending on the type of corwn that's best for you and your treatment plan.

Our team can help you choose the best options and answer any questions you many have.

One of our dentists will clean and assess the teeth that will get crowns at the initial visit.

If you are undergoing a root canal procedure, this will be need to be done first to remove all tooth decay.

In order to ensure that the tooth crown fits perfectly, the dentist will then polish the tooth's enamel.

The dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to the dental lab for crown manufacturing. If you are opting for a CEREC crown, your procedure can be completed in one appointment!

If you are opting for a traditional or normal dental crown, then before permanently placing a dental crown on your tooth, the dentist will first attach a temporary crown to it.

Remember that your teeth might be sensitive to hot and cold beverages during this period. You should not chew or eat hard foods, ice, or hard candy.

In two to three weeks, you'll return for a follow-up visit. The dentist will place your permanent crown on the affected tooth during this appointment.
