What is a Dental Crown and How to Know if You Need One

When it comes to dentistry and oral health, many terms and treatments get thrown around quite often. One such treatment is a dental crown.

Truth be told, some folks don’t know exactly what a crown is or whether or not they’d benefit from one (or more). Keep reading to learn more.

Dental crowns 101

Simply put, dental crowns are a restoration that cap your tooth or implant. Crowns are often necessary when your tooth becomes decayed or partially broken. The crown, which is made to look like your natural tooth, covers the area of the tooth that is affected, or even the entire tooth, to prevent further damage, increase tooth strength and offer an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Crowns are even helpful in correcting a misaligned bite.

When it comes to a crown, it’s important to understand that everyone’s dental situation is unique and what works for one person may not be the best solution for another. Dr. Milan has been correcting smiles for years using crowns and other methods. He takes a completely customized approach to each patient’s treatment plan.

Considering crowns, Dr. Milan is pleased to offer both traditional porcelain crowns as well as Cerec One-Visit Crowns. Both are effective options.

Porcelain crowns are completed over several appointments, as it requires an impression to be taken and sent out to a lab to be custom made. During this waiting period, you will receive a temporary crown before your permanent crown is applied.

Cerec One-Visit Crowns are an additional option. This treatment is done in one appointment using the CEREC CAD/CAM 3D System. This highly advanced treatment eliminates the need for wearing a temporary crown and taking an impression. Patients are repeatedly pleased with this fact and highly-effective treatment.

Crowns need to be cared for just as natural teeth, with proper brushing and flossing. As always, a visit to Dr. Milan will determine your best course of action.
