The crowns are a tooth-shaped cover that is placed over the tooth surface and suits the tooth perfectly. They are typically used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth. The Crowns are often referred to as Caps. Crowns are necessary because they extend the life of a tooth and protect it from further damage.

Why a Dental Crown needed?

  • To render a discolored tooth appear whiter
  • A damaged, worn-out, or fractured tooth's shape and function are restored.
  • After a root canal injection, the crown part of the tooth is strengthened.
  • When a missing tooth or teeth need to be replaced, dental bridges are used.
  • In addition to a dental implant, this is used to repair a missing tooth.
  • If there is a large cavity in a tooth and the filling is too large.

Dental crowns are used not only by adults, but also by children in the following situations:

  • To maintain teeth those are particularly vulnerable to tooth decay as a result of poor oral hygiene.
  • In order to save a tooth that has been badly decayed.
  • When a child requires numerous and frequent oral therapies but cannot be given general anesthesia on a regular basis

What Are the Steps to Prepare a Tooth for a Crown?

1. Treatment Planning and Evaluation

  • We will examine your teeth, surrounding bone, and gum tissue during your first visit.
  • Will take an x-ray of the affected tooth or teeth
  • Prescribe a root canal procedure followed by the insertion of a dental crown if any tooth is badly decayed, broken, or has a large filling.
  • When a root canal has already been performed on a tooth, the crown should be positioned immediately after the consistency of the root canal procedure has been assessed.

2.Preparation of teeth and placement of temporary crown

  • The tooth in question has been molded and prepared on all sides.
  • An impression is taken with a putty material or a digital scanner and sent to the lab, along with a bite record of your upper and lower teeth, for the fabrication of your dental crown.
  • A new impression of your formed tooth/teeth is taken, which will be used to fabricate a temporary crown in the clinic.
  • This temporary crown is done, polished, and cemented into place on your prepared tooth.

3. Permanent Dental Crown Fitting

  • Your second visit is usually a few days to a week after your first visit.
  • The dentist will remove your temporary crown and clean the surface of your teeth during this appointment.
  • Examining the final crown that has arrived from the oral lab for fit, bite, margins, and aesthetics on the prepared tooth.
  • Adjustments may be made.
  • The dental crown is returned to the lab for finishing touches if any adjustments are needed.
  • If no adjustments are required, your dentist can use a permanent oral adhesive material to secure the dental crown to the tooth.

Things to follow after Dental Crown?

Your dental crown becomes a part of your dentition until it is fixed. It needs the same level of attention as natural teeth, if not more. Clean your dental crown like you would your teeth, and floss around it as well. In reality, since your dental crown is artificial, it can attract more deposits and thus necessitates extra attention. Avoid consuming sticky, chewy foods with your crown or biting into really hard foods or items with your crown because it may get dislodged or split. Dental crowns, when properly cared for, will last for several years and remain in excellent condition.
