Dental crowns are restorations on the teeth which reinforce severely damaged teeth. Crowns are used to repair teeth that have cracked/broken or offer protection and strengthen a tooth that has suffered extensive damages. After a root canal therapy, a tooth crown is used to reinforce the tooths strength. They are important since they restore your teeth functions fully, safeguard your teeth from further damage and improve your smile.

The dentist determines the crown placement procedure based on the time set for the process. The procedure for a tooth crown can be either a multi-day or same-day procedure. A multiday procedure requires two visits to the dentists office. On the first visit, the dentist examines the tooth and prepares it for crowning. An impression of the tooth and surrounding teeth is made and sent to the lab for the crown to be made. A temporary crown is put over the tooth for protection. On the second visit, the dentist cements the lab-made crown to the patients tooth.

On the other hand, asame-day procedurerequires just one visit to the dentist. A digital picture of your teeth is taken and used to create a crown as you wait. The new crown is cemented to the affected tooth.

A crown can last between five and fifteen years, depending on the crowns type and the care given to the crown. Pure porcelain and pure ceramic crowns are more natural-looking but are not as strong as metal or porcelain fused to metal crowns. Pure resin crowns are not long-lasting, but gold crowns last the longest. After getting a crown, dentists advise patients on caring for the tooth so that the crown lasts long.

Teeth crowns vary in price based on the materials used in making the crown and the size of the tooth requiring a crown. Gold crowns are the most expensive, followed by porcelain crowns. Crowns made of a metal alloy are cheaper. Extensive prep work like a dental implant or root canal done by the dentist before putting in a crown may cause the treatment cost to rise. At Gulf Coast Dental ,our dentist will discuss the types of crowns available for your dental needs and their cost.
