What Are Dental Crowns & Bridges?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped dental prostheses that are typically made out of porcelain. They are designed to fit over your natural teeth after the damaged material has been removed, essentially replacing your entire tooth. By doing so, a crown can restore both the appearance and function of a broken or decayed tooth, protecting it from further damage.

Dental bridges are a related treatment. They use two dental crowns that are placed on healthy “abutment teeth” to suspend a false tooth (pontic) in the gap where a missing tooth used to be. Bridges can be used to restore a single missing tooth or multiple adjacent missing teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns cover up and protect your teeth from further damage and decay. This is why they’re usually chosen to restore large cavities, because they protect your teeth more effectively than alternatives like dental fillings.

Porcelain dental crowns also look and feel completely natural, and last for 15+ years with proper care. After treatment, all you have to do to care for your crowns is to brush and floss regularly and see Dr. Pham every six months for a cleaning and oral exam.

What Can I Expect from the Crown Placement Process?

The process of placing a dental crown usually takes two appointments. At your first appointment, your tooth will be prepared for your crown. Dr. Pham will begin by cleaning and numbing the area. Then, he will remove damaged and decayed enamel, and reshape your tooth to accommodate the crown. Once your tooth has been trimmed, he will take impressions of your mouth.

These impressions will be sent to a dental lab where your custom crown will be built. When your permanent crown arrives at our office, you’ll come in for your second appointment. Dr. Pham will check the crown to make sure the fit is just right, then he will bond it into place permanently with dental cement.

Am I a Good Candidate for Crowns?

If you have a tooth that has been damaged by an oral injury or extensive tooth decay, a crown is likely the best way to treat it and protect it from further damage. To find out if a crown is the best option for restoring your smile, schedule a consultation at SmileSpot today.
