What you Need to Know About Dental Crowns

After a root canal there are several options for restoring the appearance of the affected tooth. In cosmetic and restorative dentistry, dental crowns are the preferred restoration technique as they not only restore but can also improve the outward appearance of a tooth. Most often this procedure bolsters damaged teeth but is also employed to disguise dental flaws such as teeth that are misshapen. Custom porcelain crowns are quite common today and are made to completely blend in with surrounding teeth. As with every dental procedure, there are benefits and what some patients might consider drawbacks.

Benefits of Dental Crowns:

Crowns improve the appearance of teeth. When used for this application they can:
  • Conceal a dental implant
  • Change the shape of a tooth to match those that surround it
  • Correct discoloration caused by illness or medication
As a restorative solution, dental crowns may be used to:
  • Restore teeth after undergoing a root canal
  • Protect worn teeth from further erosion
  • Support teeth decayed through neglect
  • Anchor a dental bridge to surrounding healthy teeth
Caveats to Consider Regarding Dental Crowns:
  • Temporary or permanent sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages
  • Discomfort when chewing
  • Gum tenderness
  • Allergic Reaction:
  • some patients may experience an allergic reaction to the materials used in this process
  • dental crowns usually last for up to 15 years before requiring replacement
