Dental Crowns Newport Dental Group CA 92627A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that lays over a damaged or broken tooth. It functions and appears like the original tooth.

The life of the tooth is extended due to the protection and strength the crown provides. A crown is a common painless dental procedure that lasts for many years. There are numerous dental problems a crown can help fix.

Some Dental Problems for a Crown

•  Broken or fractured teeth
•  Seriously decayed teeth
•  Broken fillings
•  Cosmetic defects
•  Protected of a tooth following a root canal
•  Dental implant encasement
•  Dental bridge anchor

Types of Dental Crowns

The dentist will help you determine what type of crown is best for your mouth. These include:

•  All Porcelain: This type of crown is the most visually appealing option. However, it is typically recommended for use only for the front teeth. The risks of fracture are increased when placed on the rear teeth.
•  Gold: This type of crown has the most durability and best used on the rear teeth. For those who grind or clench their teeth, gold crowns are ideal. Tissue adapts quickly with this restoration.
•  Porcelain Fused to Metal: This type of crown features porcelain attached to the outside of the metal base, allowing it to be more visually appealing than the full metal option. This is the ideal option for those who wish to have a durable, natural look. If damage does occur, it typically is only one the outer porcelain area.

The Procedure

The procedure for a dental crown takes place over two appointments. On the first appointment, the area is prepared to allow the cap to fit and impressions are taken. On the follow-up appointment, the crown is placed and proper spacing and biting are ensured.

Regular follow-up appointments are recommended to ensure the crown remains in ideal shape.
