What is a dental crown?
Dental crown procedure is a process when an artificial tooth shaped replacement installed over a tooth. It covers the tooth restoring its strength, shape and size. It also makes the tooth look better. When installed in place, the crown completely covers the tooth starting from the gum line.
When dental crown may be needed?
Crowns can be used in the following cases:
- Preventing a weak tooth from breaking
- Holding parts of a broken tooth together
- Replacing a broken or a worn down tooth
- Supporting and covering a tooth with a significant Filling
- Holding a Dental Bridge in place
- Hiding misshaped or discolored teeth
- Replacing a lost tooth when placed on a Dental Implant
As for the duration, the first stage of the treatment will take 2-3 days. During that time we will get your teeth prepared and will take impressions for the crowns. If the teeth extraction is needed, it will also be done at the first stage of the treatment, and a temporary crown can be placed instead of the extracted tooth. After that, the dental laboratory needs around 5 working days to perform their work. The permanent crowns can be installed after that, and the installation itself requires an additional day.
What are the crowns made of?
Permanent crowns can be made of various materials, starting from all metal ones, through porcelain fused to metal and ending at all porcelain or all resin.
All metal crowns
Crowns can be made of different types of metal such as gold or palladium, or base metal alloys such as nickel or chromium. Using metal crowns, less tooth structure needs to be removed compared to other types of crowns, and in the same time the tooth wear to opposite teeth is minimized.
Metal crowns are also known for lasting the longest as they can stand the chewing and the biting forces very well and are very difficult to break or chip. The only drawback from using the metal crowns is their metallic colour. Therefore they can be a good solution for molars that aren’t visible.
Porcelain fused to metal crowns
Porcelain fused to metal crowns can match the natural teeth color. Something that was not possible using the metal crowns. Nevertheless, the risk of wear down caused by the opposing teeth is much higher with porcelain fused to metal crowns. In addition, the porcelain part is more subject to the risk of breaking or chipping. Porcelain fused to metal crowns can be a good solution for both front and back teeth as they resemble the natural teeth just like the
All Ceramic crowns. The only difference is that using the porcelain fused to metal crowns a dark line can appear at the gum level indicating the underlying metal part.
How do I have to care for my temporary dental crown?
The temporary dental crowns are a temporary solution installed for the time needed for the permanent crown to be prepared. Our dentists recommend to take precautions for the time when the temporary crown is in use. You should avoid sticky and chewy food such as chewing gum or caramel as it could pull the crown off. You should also try to use the other side of the mouth in order not to put the temporary crown at risk. Most of the chewing should be done by the other side of the mouth, where the crown is not fitted. Any hard food such as raw vegetables can also harm your temporary crown, therefore you should try to avoid it as they can misplace or even break the crown.
Is any special care required in regards to a crowned tooth?
You don’t need to worry about any special care for your crowned tooth. Simply remember to observe a proper oral hygiene, and brush your teeth twice a day at minimum in order to prevent decay or gum disease.
