A crown is like a hard, protective jacket for your tooth. Crowns are typically used to help provide strength to an existing tooth, such as a tooth that has a very large filling. Sometimes, they're used cosmetically to improve the size and shape of a tooth or to cover dark fillings or teeth that have become discolored or stained. They can also be used in restorations to “rebuild” a broken tooth, to protect a tooth following a root canal or to serve as anchors for a dental bridge. And finally, they're used to cover the post of a dental implant. Crowns can be made of gold or porcelain tinted to look like our natural teeth.
It typically takes two visits to place a crown. First, your tooth will be carefully shaped to make room for the thickness of the crown. Dr. Matevosyan will also make an impression of your mouth so the crown can be shaped to fit the tooth and match your surrounding teeth. Finally, you'll be fitted with a temporary crown to protect your tooth until your permanent crown is ready to be put in place during the second visit. Once the crown is cemented in place, it can be gently shaped to achieve a custom an comfortable fit.
No, you care for a crown the same way you care for your other teeth, with regular brushing, flossing and checkups to keep your gums and teeth as healthy as possible. Crowns are designed to be strong enough to withstand the pressures of regular chewing, and they're also designed to resist staining. However, to ensure they stay in the best shape possible, you may want to avoid chewing on hard candy or ice.
