What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a damaged tooth, essentially completely covering the tooth and restoring it to its original shape and size. Dental crowns are able to protect and strengthen a tooth that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Reasons for a Dental Crown include:

  • Broken, fractured, or chipped teeth
  • Cosmetic enhancement
  • Decayed teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • A broken or fractured filling
  • Large fillings
  • Tooth sensitivity

What Does Getting a Crown Involve?

First, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic. Your dentist then files down the tooth that needs to be restored. An impression of the filed-down tooth and nearby teeth is taken, which is used to custom make your final crown. Until the final crown is ready, your dentist places a temporary crown over the tooth to protect your tooth until the final crown is ready. A temporary crown may not have the same shape and colour as a final crown. At your final visit, your dentist will take off the temporary crown and place the final one on, making sure it’s the right fit, shape, colour, and bite. If it is, your dentist cements the crown into place.
