How crowns work

A dental crown protects and wraps a damaged tooth like a snuggly cap (some people call it caps but crown sounds fancy, right?) A well applied crown will permanently protect a damaged tooth and give you an almost natural smile.

The process of applying crowns

  • Crowns are everlasting. It's like building a house on a damaged foundation to place a crown on a damaged tooth. Until we can consider putting a crown on, we have to make sure that the tooth will sustain it. We use X-Rays to determine decay. When the tooth shows signs of an infection, we will have you working for assessment with one of our specialists.
  • Your new crown will be the same size as the tooth it protects, meaning we'll need to remove some of your current tooth to match the crown. For a permanent crown, the dentist must numb the region around the tooth and then form the tooth to the correct size. If you want a bridge, either side of your missing tooth we'll prepare the teeth.
  • Your dentist would get an idea of your upper and lower teeth and the crown should blend in with your smile.
  • Your teeth, particularly their color and how they handle the light, are unique to you. It's necessary to build a crown that suits the natural look of your teeth.
  • The dentist will place a temporary, resin crown over the tooth while creating your permanent crown.
  • When your permanent crown is ready it will be tested by your dentist for fit and look. The dentist will test the bite once it's in place and make final changes.

How long can a crown last?

A crown's average lifespan is around 10 years, but crowns will last a lifetime well-cared for. When you get a crown, then plan for years to come to smile on.
