Crowns Q & A
What are crowns?
A dental crown is an artificial structure that covers your tooth. This structure closely matches your natural tooth. At Cal Select Dental Group, you can receive custom-made, natural-looking crowns.
Your practitioner chooses materials that match your tooth. They also shape the tooth using cutting-edge techniques. Once your crown is ready, your practitioner cements it in place. A custom-made crown restores the appearance of your teeth. Crowns conceal stains, cracks, and chips. They also protect weak teeth from further damage.
What dental problems do crowns correct?
Crowns can help:
- Protect a decayed tooth
- Cover up stains and chips
- Seal a cracked tooth together
- Restore a worn-down tooth
- Hold a dental bridge in place
Crowns serve a cosmetic purpose and provide a more uniform smile. But they also offer added protection for weak or damaged teeth. Your crown can help you avoid costly dental problems in the future.
How are crowns placed?
If you opt for a crown, you can expect to visit Cal Select Dental Group at least twice. First, your practitioner prepares your tooth. They may remove decay or previous fillings to provide a clean slate. Your practitioner may also file down the tooth so your crown fits snugly in place.
Next, your practitioner helps you select the crown material. You can choose a shade that matches your natural teeth. Your practitioner also makes plans for shaping the crown. Once your crown is ready, your practitioner makes some final adjustments. They check to make sure you're happy with how the crown looks and feels. Finally, they cement your crown in place.
What kind of follow-up care do I need?
Just like natural teeth, crowns need regular care. Brushing and flossing twice a day helps protect your new crown. Cal Select Dental Group can help you choose the best oral hygiene products.
Avoid chewing hard foods or objects, and use a mouthguard when playing sports. Crowns can break if struck with hard objects. If you damage your crown, don't wait until your next dental cleaning. Schedule a dental visit right away.
