What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration that completely covers all of the visible surfaces of your natural tooth. Crowns are a versatile treatment that can address a number of needs. 

Often called “caps,” dental crowns fit over your prepared tooth, helping to protect it from damage. Crowns are created to align perfectly with your natural teeth, maintaining a healthy and balanced bite. Because crowns leave the root portion of your tooth intact, they also preserve bone health. 

At Bayside Dental Arts, only the highest quality porcelain is used to create dental crowns. The restorations have the same tiny imperfections as natural teeth and can be shaded to match the color of your teeth to create an incredibly natural-looking final product that blends seamlessly with your smile. 

What kinds of issues can a dental crown correct?

Some of the dental problems that a custom crown can address include:

  • Chipped or cracked tooth
  • Discoloration that teeth whitening cannot correct
  • Irregularities in the size of teeth
  • Misshapen tooth
  • Worn-down tooth
  • Tooth weakened by multiple dental treatments

Dental crowns are also used to anchor dental bridges and as the final step in root canal treatment. A type of crown that does not attach to a natural tooth is used in implant dentistry. 

What are the steps involved in getting dental crowns?

Advanced digital imaging helps determine if a dental crown is the right fit for your needs. On the day of your procedure, an injection of numbing medication ensures you remain comfortable from start to finish. 

Your dentist reduces your natural tooth tissue to make room for the crown. A set of digital impressions provides the lab with all the information needed to create your custom crown. A temporary crown protects your prepared tooth until the new crown is ready. 

At that point, you return so Dr. Ilyabayev can check the restoration for appearance and fit before he cements it into place. This completes the restoration, and you’ll walk out with your new smile, ready to share with the world.
