Frequently Asked Questions
The process typically involves two appointments. During the first appointment, your dentist will prepare the tooth, take impressions, and place a temporary crown. The impressions are sent to a dental lab, where the permanent crown is custom-made. The second appointment involves removing the temporary crown and cementing the permanent crown in place. The entire process usually takes a couple of weeks.
Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including metal (such as gold or silver), porcelain, or a combination of metal and porcelain. Porcelain crowns are popular for their natural appearance, especially for front teeth, as they closely resemble natural tooth enamel.
Dental crowns do not require any unique care. You should maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly and attending regular dental check-ups. Avoid biting down on hard objects or using your teeth to open packages, as this can potentially damage the crown.
Dental crowns are durable and long-lasting, but they may need replacement over time due to normal wear and tear. With proper care and maintenance, a well-fitted dental crown can last many years, providing a reliable and functional solution for your tooth restoration needs.
