What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown looks somewhat like a hollowed-out tooth. It is designed to fit snugly over the entire visible portion of a tooth, encapsulating it completely. The crown holds the tooth structure together to strengthen it and restore its function while simultaneously protecting it from future complications. Crowns that are placed towards the front of the mouth can be crafted out of dental ceramic, which will look just like natural tooth enamel for seamless results. Crowns for the molars are often made of stainless steel for added strength, since they’ll be exposed to more pressure from chewing than teeth in the front of the mouth.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

Once we’ve determined that a dental crown is right for your little one, we’ll set about preparing the tooth. We’ll remove any damaged tissues and shave away a thin layer of enamel to make room for the crown. Although this is a minimally invasive procedure, your child’s mouth will be fully numbed to make sure they are as comfortable as possible. Then, we’ll take impressions of the area and place a temporary crown over the tooth.

The impressions will be sent to a local dental lab, where they’ll be used to craft the final restoration. This will usually take a few weeks, and during this time your child will be wearing their temporary dental crown. Make sure they don’t eat anything to hard or crunchy to keep it in place! Then, we’ll call you back to our office to have it removed and bond the permanent dental crown in place. If the crown is placed on a baby tooth, it will fall out along with the tooth when the time comes.
