What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is designed to fit over the entire portion of a tooth that is visible above the gumline. Crowns can be made out of various materials, including porcelain fused to metal (PFM), porcelain, and ceramic.

A crown’s function is to protect and fortify damaged dentition and allow a tooth to continue functioning for a longer period of time and enhance your smile. It can repair and protect a cracked tooth, reshape a worn-down tooth, or shield a tooth that was treated with root canal therapy. Crowns can even be used alongside prosthetic teeth to fill in gaps in your smile.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

The process of getting a dental crown is usually like this:

While preparing for the crown, Dr. Makadia takes your bite and alignment of your teeth into consideration with the goal of optimizing your oral function. We also make sure that the crown matches the color of your natural teeth.

A dental crown can provide many benefits.

Dental crowns designed and done correctly by dentists like Dr. Makadia are durable. Their lifespan can vary from case to case, but many patients find that their crowns last for 15 years or even longer if they receive proper care.
