Crown restorations are one of the most common types of procedures we perform here at Swedish Dental. Thousands of people every day have crowns to fix an array of dental issues. Despite how common dental crowns are, most do not understand how they work. Read on to learn more about the dental crown procedure.

What are Dental Crowns

A dental crown is an entire cap that is placed over a tooth. In a dental crown procedure, the crown is cemented into place and fully covers the entire tooth. A dental crown is custom-fitted; therefore, part of the dental crown procedure is ensuring the crown is the same size and shape of the real tooth that exists.

Why do you need a Dental Crown?

There are many reasons why someone may need to have a dental crown procedure. Some of them are:

  • Protect a weak tooth from further decay, cracks or from breaking
  • Restore a very worn-down tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has more filling than an actual tooth.
  • Keep a dental bridge in place
  • Cover extremely discolored or misshapen teeth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a root canal

What to expect when getting a dental crown procedure?

Our dental crown procedure entails the following steps:

  1. The dentist removes any decay from the existing tooth and adds any structure/filling needed to support the tooth
  2. A mold of the tooth will be made to be used to create a matching crown. This is done digitally.
  3. If needed, the dentist will provide a temporary crown to protect the tooth until the real crown is ready
  4. Once the crown is ready it will be cemented to the tooth by the dentist
