What is a Dental Crown?

close up of porcelain dental crownsA crown is a prosthetic cap that fits over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its strength, shape, and function. After minimal reshaping of the enamel, the crown is affixed to the tooth. Another purpose of the prosthetic is to protect the tooth from further damage and decay.

We partner with trusted labs to have your crown made from the highest-quality materials. You can also help choose the shade of your prosthetic to match your surrounding teeth. Our goal is to use our knowledge and experience to give you a smile you can be proud of.

Why Would I Require a Dental Crown?

Dental Crowns are a versatile option for many dental health issues and treatments. They offer a safe and durable solution with long-lasting benefits and allow you to keep your natural teeth. Whether you need a crown to repair damage or for a cosmetic issue, you can trust Dr. Bracker's gentle and expert treatments. Some of the reasons you may need a dental crown include:

  • Returning strength to a severely decayed tooth
  • Restoring a damaged tooth
  • Restoring a missing tooth as part of a single dental implant
  • Supporting a dental bridge
  • Enhancing the aesthetics of your smile
  • Protecting a tooth after a root canal therapy

What Should I Expect When Receiving a Dental Crown?

If it is determined that you require a dental crown, we will first numb the affected area with a local anesthetic. Next, to ensure the crown will fit properly and securely, we will reshape the enamel of your tooth. Our Rochester dental crown experts will then take impressions of your tooth and send them to a trusted lab, where they will use the mold to craft your custom dental crown.

Once your new crown is delivered, which usually takes two to three weeks, we will place your prosthetic using dental cement. Our team will also make any alterations needed to ensure a secure and comfortable fit.

Restoring the Health of Your Tooth with Root Canal Therapy

One of the most common uses for a dental crown is to restore the strength and health of a tooth after root canal therapy. Should bacteria enter the root chamber of your tooth, it can cause inflammation and infection in the pulp. Using a special tool, we make a small hole in the tooth and remove all diseased tissue. We then clean and disinfect the root chamber and place a temporary dental crown to prevent the infection from spreading to the rest of your body. When your final crown is crafted, you will come back in to have it placed.

Ensuring the Longevity of Your Dental Crown in Rochester

Crowns are much like your natural teeth and require diligent care. The tooth underneath the crown is still susceptible to decay if the crown is damaged or dislodged. You can help maintain the strength and maximize the longevity of your crown by following some of these simple tips:

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene – Brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day, along with using mouthwash, can prevent tartar from forming in the gums around your tooth.

Proper Eating Habits – It is important that you avoid eating hard and sticky foods with your new dental crown. As time progresses, these foods can break or loosen a crown.

Schedule Regular Dental Visits – By seeing you regularly, our dentist can ensure the gums surrounding your prosthetic are healthy and that your crown remains secure. We are also able to catch potential problems before they become serious.
