What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is customized to fit over your damaged tooth and match your natural ones. It is often made of durable, high-quality tooth-colored materials that can last up to 15 years with the right care, making it an excellent long-term solution. Dental crowns are typically used to:

  • Cover an extensively decayed tooth that needs additional support.
  • Fortify a fractured tooth that has lost stability.
  • Restore function and protect a tooth that had a root canal.
  • Cap a surgically placed dental implant.
  • Anchor implant dentures into place.

The Dental Crown Process

There are two types of dental crowns and the process of being fitted for them will vary slightly.

First, Dr. Tomaszewski will examine your condition and get to know your personal oral goals, needs, medical history, etc. If he determines a dental crown is necessary, he’ll walk you through the treatment options and prepare your tooth. This involves removing some of the enamel so that the restoration lays flush against your gums and even with the surrounding teeth when it’s placed.

Then, he’ll make an impression of your teeth using state-of-the-art digital imaging for the most accurate results. If you’re being fitted for a same-day crown, it will be created and cemented into place during the same visit. Otherwise, he’ll send your information to a lab for it to be built for you.

Once the lab has created and delivered your dental crown, we’ll schedule you for another visit to have it placed.
