Crowns Q & A

What are dental crowns?

A dental crown is a type of cap that protects and fortifies a damaged or weakened tooth. Dental crowns also anchor dental bridges to fill in gaps in your smile. Dental bridges are a set of prosthetic teeth. The bridge is anchored to a crown affixed to a natural tooth or teeth surrounding the gap in your smile.  

Dental crowns are most often made from sturdy porcelain that reflects the natural coloration and sheen of your teeth. Dental crowns can also be manufactured from metal or ceramics. 

The team at Fortune Dental places dental crowns on the back and front teeth. The crowns are sturdy and beautiful, blending right into your smile.

Dental crowns don’t need extra care. You clean them just like your natural teeth with regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings. 

Who benefits from a dental crown?

A dental crown protects and beautifies existing teeth. You may need a crown to:

  • Cover permanently discolored or misshapen teeth
  • Guard teeth that are cracked or that are in danger of breaking
  • Strengthen teeth that have substantially large fillings
  • Protect cracked teeth or teeth in danger of breaking
  • Serve as an anchor for a dental bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Fortify a tooth that’s undergone a root canal

Dental crowns contribute to a functional, beautiful smile. 

What should I expect when getting a dental crown?

Getting a dental crown takes more than one appointment. At the first appointment, your provider prepares the tooth to receive the crown. Preparation may involve shaving off a small amount of the natural enamel to allow the crown to fit well.  

At this appointment, your provider also takes impressions of your teeth. The impressions are then sent to a lab where your crown is created. In the interim, your provider will place a temporary crown to protect the tooth. 

You'll return to the office when the crown comes in from the lab. There, the provider seals it into place. They’ll refine your bite and make sure that the crown feels natural.
