What Is A Dental Crown?

A dental crown is an artificial tooth cap that’s permanently fitted on top of an existing root structure, like a dental implant or a natural tooth root.

Unlike a veneer, which only covers the front surface of your tooth, a crown covers the entirety of your tooth above the gumline, where it can restore, reinforce, or replace a tooth that’s damaged, decayed, unsightly, or missing.

What Are Dental Crowns Made out Of?

Some of the dental crown materials available at Diamond Dental include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Porcelain with zirconia
  • Porcelain fused to metal
  • Cast gold

Each material has different pros and cons, and your dentist helps you to select a material that best suits your needs, preferences, and budgets.

What Do Dental Crowns Do?

The team at Diamond Dental use crowns for a wide variety of purposes, such as to:

  • Strengthen a damaged tooth
  • Reinforce a decayed tooth
  • Replace an unsightly tooth
  • Restore function in a badly worn tooth
  • Improve your ability to speak or chew
  • Attach a bridge

Your dentist also typically fits you with a crown after you’ve had a root canal in order to restore and reinforce its structural integrity.

What Is the Process of Getting a Crown?

The team at Diamond Dental can cap your tooth in 2-3 office visits. First, your dentist numbs your tooth and the surrounding tissue with a local anesthetic, then uses a drill to shave off some enamel to make room for the crown.

Next, your dentist takes an impression of your tooth with either a digital scanner or dental putty. The impression is sent off to a lab, where your crown is designed to fit in seamlessly with your smile and comfortably with your bite.

Your dentist fits you with a temporary crown while you wait for your permanent restoration to come back from the lab.

Once your permanent crown is back from the lab, you come in for another visit. Your dentist places the crown, checks that the fit is good, and finally seals it with a resin that hardens upon exposure to a special light.

How Do I Care for My Crown?

Your crown can be cared for just like the rest of your natural teeth. Just make sure to brush and floss daily and maintain regular cleaning appointments and exams with the team at Diamond Dental.

Don’t wait any longer to restore your smile. Schedule your dental crown consultation today by calling the office at (203) 794-7668 or booking online.

Diamond Dental review 1
Dr. V and Dr. Wang are both the most considerate, gentle, and caring dentists I have ever met. They both care so deeply for their patients. Very understanding and would do anything for anyone. Both assistants are wonderful as well. Always smiling, cheerful, and brilliant. Before coming to Diamond Dental I was petrified of any dentist I went to. Being here with them erases the fear. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

Dr. V and Jorge are so incredibly nice! The practice is very clean and the front office staff are friendly and efficient. They gave me a topical numbing ointment on my gums before starting the cleaning which was really thoughtful. They also recommended a bunch of restaurants in the area to try. I'm looking forward to my next appointment!
