What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are materials used to cover or cap damaged or weakened teeth. They are designed to restore the tooth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance, as well as improve its overall function. Dental crowns are commonly recommended in various situations.

What Are The Types Of Dental Crowns And Differences Between Them?

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of materials. The choice of material depends on factors such as the location of the tooth, the functional requirements, and aesthetic considerations.
Your dentist will evaluate your specific dental needs and recommend the most suitable type of crown for your situation.
The process typically involves preparing the tooth, taking impressions, and placing a temporary crown while the permanent crown is fabricated in a dental laboratory. Once ready, the permanent crown is cemented or bonded onto the prepared tooth.

How Do Dental Crowns Work?

Dental crowns work by covering and encapsulating a damaged or weakened tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Here is a step-by-step overview of how dental crowns work.

  • Evaluation and Diagnosis: Before recommending a dental crown, the dentist conducts a thorough examination of the affected tooth. X-rays may be taken to assess the extent of damage or decay.
  • Tooth Preparation: To accommodate the crown, the dentist prepares the tooth by removing a portion of its outer structure. This involves shaping the tooth and, in some cases, removing decayed or damaged areas.
  • Impressions: Once the tooth is prepared, the dentist takes impressions of the tooth and the surrounding teeth. These impressions serve as a mold for the fabrication of the dental crown.
  • Temporary Crown Placement: While the permanent crown is being custom-made in a dental laboratory, a temporary crown may be placed on the prepared tooth to protect it and maintain functionality.
  • Laboratory Fabrication: The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory where skilled technicians use them to create a customized crown. The crown can be made from various materials, such as porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-metal, all-ceramic, or zirconia.
  • Crown Fitting: Once the permanent crown is ready, the patient returns to the dentist for its placement. The dentist checks the fit, color, and appearance to ensure that the crown matches the surrounding teeth and aligns properly with the patient’s bite.
  • Cementation or Bonding: If the fit is satisfactory, the dentist permanently attaches the crown to the prepared tooth using dental cement or bonding materials. The crown is carefully positioned to cover the entire visible portion of the tooth.
  • Final Adjustments: The dentist makes any necessary final adjustments to ensure that the bite is comfortable and natural. This step is crucial for proper function and to prevent issues such as uneven wear on opposing teeth.

Once the dental crown is in place, it serves as a protective and functional covering for the treated tooth. The crown helps distribute the forces of biting and chewing, preventing further damage to the weakened tooth.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Veneers?

Differences Between Dental Crown and Dental Veneer?

How long do dental crowns last?

The lifespan of dental crowns can vary based on several factors, including the type of crown, the materials used, oral hygiene practices, and the individual’s habits.
On average, dental crowns can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years or more.
Here are some factors that influence the longevity of dental crowns:

  • Type of Crown: Different types of crowns have varying durability. For example, all-metal crowns, such as those made of gold or metal alloys, are known for their longevity and may last longer than some other types.
  • Material Used: The material of the crown plays a significant role. Porcelain and ceramic crowns are aesthetically pleasing but may be more prone to chipping or fracture compared to metal or zirconia crowns.
  • Location in the Mouth: Crowns in high-stress areas, such as molars used for chewing, may experience more wear and tear and may need replacement sooner than crowns on less-utilized teeth.
  • Oral Hygiene Practices: Regular and proper oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups, can contribute to the longevity of dental crowns. Good oral care helps prevent decay and gum disease, which could impact the integrity of the crown.
  • Bruxism (Teeth Grinding): Individuals who grind or clench their teeth (bruxism) may experience more wear on their crowns. In such cases, a night guard may be recommended to protect the crowns during sleep.
  • Diet and Habits: Chewing on hard objects, using teeth as tools, or having a diet high in acidic foods can affect the durability of crowns. Avoiding habits that put excessive stress on the crowns can help extend their lifespan.
  • Dental Maintenance: Regular dental check-ups allow the dentist to assess the condition of the crowns and detect any issues early. Timely repairs or replacements may be recommended to maintain oral health.
  • Age of the Crown: As crowns age, they may show signs of wear, and the risk of problems may increase. Dentists may recommend replacing older crowns for preventive reasons.

It’s essential for individuals with dental crowns to follow their dentist’s advice, attend regular check-ups, and report any concerns or changes in the crown’s condition promptly.

  • Avoid Staining Substances such as coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco, as these can potentially stain the crowns over time.
  • Avoid biting on hard objects, such as ice, pens, or fingernails, as this could chip or damage the crowns.
  • Scheduling and attending regular dental check-ups.
  • If patient participates in contact sports or grind the teeth at night, wearing a mouthguard can help protect the crowns from potential damage.
  • Patients with the habit of grinding the teeth, should inform this to the dentist. The dentist may recommend a nightguard to protect the veneers from the effects of bruxism.

Mouthguard / Nightguard

Can I Have Crowns If I Have Existing Dental Issues?

The suitability of veneers for individuals with existing dental issues depends on the nature and severity of those issues. Veneers are primarily a cosmetic dental procedure designed to enhance the appearance of teeth, and they may not be the best solution for certain dental problems. However, in some cases, veneers can be part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

Here are common dental issues and considerations:

  • Tooth Decay: Veneers are not a solution for active tooth decay. Before considering veneers, any decayed teeth should be treated and restored, typically with fillings or other restorative procedures.
  • Gum Disease: Active gum disease may affect the suitability of veneers. It’s essential to address and manage gum disease before considering cosmetic procedures like veneers.
  • Bruxism (Teeth Grinding): Individuals with bruxism may experience excessive wear on their teeth. Addressing the underlying cause of bruxism and managing it with a nightguard or other interventions may be necessary before considering veneers.
  • Misalignment or Bite Issues: Veneers are not a substitute for orthodontic treatment. If you have significant misalignment or bite issues, orthodontic solutions may be recommended before or in conjunction with veneers.
  • Insufficient Tooth Structure: Veneers require a certain amount of healthy tooth structure for successful placement. If a tooth has insufficient structure, other restorative options like crowns may be considered.
  • Existing Dental Work: If you have existing dental work, such as large fillings or crowns, this may impact the placement of veneers. Your dentist will assess the condition of existing dental work and determine the most appropriate approach.
  • Overall Oral Health: The overall health of your teeth and gums is crucial. A thorough dental examination will help determine if veneers are a suitable option based on your oral health.

It’s important to have a consultation with a qualified dentist to assess your specific dental situation. During the consultation, the dentist will evaluate your oral health, discuss your goals, and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan.
