What is a Dental Crown?

At Comfort Family Dental, we offer various services, including dental crowns. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are an effective way to improve the aesthetics of a tooth and protect it from further damage.

Various materials are used to make dental crowns, including porcelain, gold, and metal alloys. We use only the highest quality materials and the most advanced technology to ensure the best results. Our team will work with you to determine the best material for your specific needs.


What are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?

The benefits of a dental crown are numerous and can help to improve the overall health and appearance of a person’s smile.


  • Improve the overall appearance of a tooth. A dental crown covers the entire visible surface of a tooth, which can help to improve its shape, color, and overall appearance.
  • Strengthen a weak or damaged tooth. We can use dental crowns to help protect a tooth from further damage due to decay, wear, or trauma. We can also use them to support a large filling with insufficient tooth structure.
  • Improve the function of a tooth. We can use a dental crown to help restore the proper bite and function of a tooth, which can help improve chewing and speaking abilities.
  • Prevent further dental problems. A dental crown can help protect a tooth from further decay or damage. We can also use crowns to help prevent cracks or fractures in a tooth, which can lead to more serious dental problems if left untreated.
  • Lengthen the life of a tooth. Dental crowns can help extend a tooth’s life by protecting it from further damage. This can help to keep a tooth strong and healthy for longer.


What to Expect When Getting a Dental Crown

At Comfort Family Dental, we understand that having a dental crown can be a stressful experience. That’s why we are committed to providing our patients with a comfortable, stress-free experience. We take the time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have.


The process of getting a dental crown begins with an initial consultation. During this appointment, we will discuss your goals, assess your overall oral health, and decide if a dental crown is right for you. We will then take X-rays and impressions of your teeth to create the crown.


Once the crown is ready, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to have the crown placed. During this appointment, we will ensure the crown fits correctly and make any necessary adjustments. We will also provide you with instructions on how to care for your new crown.


How to Care for Your Dental Crown

The first step to caring for your dental crown is to brush and floss regularly. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to gently brush all areas of your crown and your natural teeth. Brushing helps to prevent plaque buildup around the crown, which can lead to decay and damage. Flossing is also essential to remove food particles and plaque buildup between your teeth and around the crown.


It is essential to attend your routine dental appointments, as your dentist will be able to check the health of your crown and identify any potential problems. Additionally, they will be able to provide preventive treatments such as sealants and fluoride treatments which can help to protect your crown and prolong its life. 


Finally, avoiding hard or chewy foods that may damage your crown is important. Additionally, you should avoid using your teeth for anything other than eating, such as opening bottles or biting into hard objects. With the proper care, your dental crown can last for many years.
