Dental Crowns – Restoring Strength and Aesthetics to Your Teeth

Dental Crowns

What Are Dental Crowns and Why Might You Need One?

Dental crowns are custom-made restorations that fit over the entire surface of a tooth. They are used to restore a tooth's shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are typically recommended for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay. They are also used to complete other procedures like dental implants or root canals.

What Does the Crown Placement Process Involve?

Getting a dental crown at Paya Dental involves:

  • Tooth Preparation: The tooth is reshaped to ensure a proper fit for the crown.
  • Impressions: We take accurate impressions of your tooth to create a custom crown.
  • Temporary Crown: A temporary crown is placed while your permanent crown is being made.
  • Permanent Crown Placement: Once ready, the permanent crown is adjusted for fit and then cemented into place.

What Types of Crown Materials Are Available?

At Paya Dental, we offer various materials for crowns, including:

  • Porcelain or Ceramic: Popular for their natural appearance, perfect for front teeth.
  • Gold and Metal Alloys: Known for their strength, ideal for back teeth.
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal: Offers both strength and a pleasing aesthetic.

How Do You Care for Your Dental Crown?

Caring for a dental crown involves:

  • Regular brushing and flossing to prevent decay and gum disease.
  • Avoiding hard foods that might damage the crown.
  • Regular dental check-ups for professional cleaning and inspection.
