Having your teeth crowned is something a lot of people choose to do in order to maintain the structure of a tooth or correct the appearance of it, and something a dentist will usually recommend after a treatment for a large filling and/or root canal.

What Is a Crown?
A crown is a fixed cover or tooth-shaped cap that structurally supports teeth, and restores a tooth’s shape, strength, size, and maximize its appearance.

What Is a Crown Made Of?
A crown can be made from stainless steel, all metal – such as gold or another metal alloy, porcelain fused to metal, all resin, or all ceramic to maintain a natural appearance.

How Is a Crown Put Onto a Tooth?
Crowns are tightly bonded to the tooth and that process begins by trimming the tooth, then taking an impression (mold) of the top and bottom teeth, then a crown is fabricated to fit over the trimmed tooth. Lastly, the crown is cemented or bonded to complete the restoration of the tooth .

Why Is a Crown Needed?
Crowns are used to…
– repair teeth that have been badly broken
– support the structure of the tooth that has undergone a root canal
– correct a malformed or discolored tooth
– fix a bite in order to maintain the sound structure of your jaw
– cover a dental implant
– hold a dental bridge in place

How Long Does a Crown Last?
A crown can last 10 to 15 years, especially if you pay close attention to the things you chew, avoiding a lot of hard candy and ice for example.
