Crowns Q & A

What are dental crowns?

A dental crown is a restorative treatment that helps repair and protect the visible surface of your tooth. Doral Sedation & Family Dentistry creates beautiful, natural-looking crowns that blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. 

Crowns are made of durable material and help stimulate your underlying bone tissue to keep it healthy. You need daily stimulation to preserve bone health. 

Your dentist can use porcelain or ceramic crowns to give your teeth the most natural-looking finish, or you may be interested in gold crowns, which are very strong and less likely to chip. Gold crowns are similar to metal crowns and they’re recommended for people who grind their teeth.

Doral Sedation & Family Dentistry customizes your crowns to match the color and shade of your original teeth for the perfect fit. 

What kinds of issues can crowns address?

Crowns can correct several denial issues while protecting and restoring your tooth and oral health. In addition, dental crowns may enhance the aesthetic appearance of your smile. 

Some of the most common issues that a dental crown can treat include:

  • Teeth weakened by multiple dental treatments
  • Discoloration that can’t be corrected with teeth whitening
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Cracked or fractured teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Irregularities in the size of teeth

After a root canal, crowns and dental implants are used to complete the restoration process. 

What does getting a crown involve?

When you come into Doral Sedation & Family Dentistry for a crown consultation, your dentist gathers information about the shape, size, and alignment of your teeth. 

On the day of your procedure, your dentist administers numbing medication to eliminate any sensation or discomfort in the treatment area. They then remove a small portion of your enamel to ensure there’s room for your dental crown. 

Your dentist takes impressions of your teeth and sends them to a dental lab to create your custom crown. While you wait for your permanent crown to arrive from the lab, your dentist covers your tooth with a temporary crown. 

You return to the office to have your crown cemented into place, and your dentist smooths the surface of the crown to ensure a comfortable fit and natural appearance.
