What’s a Dental Crown Used For? 

Dental crowns are a versatile treatment that are used for a variety of reasons. Some patients who have a weakened tooth may get a dental crown to strengthen it. Others may opt for a dental crown as a cosmetic treatment to enhance their appearance. Dental crowns are also used as the tooth-replacement in dental implant procedures due to their strength and attractiveness. 

Conditions That Can Be Fixed With a Dental Crown

These are some of the most common reasons why patients may need a dental crown: 

  • Cosmetic modification to improve the appearance of a tooth
  • Providing support for a dental bridge
  • To cover a tooth that had a large filling
  • Masking a severely discolored tooth
  • As a last resort for saving a tooth after a root canal treatment

The Dental Crown Procedure

Having a dental crown customized and attached to your tooth typically takes two visits. We start by preparing your tooth to receive the temporary crown before we send an impression off to a lab. You’ll wear the temporary version until your custom crown arrives, and on your next visit, we’ll attach the customized crown to your tooth. Although it might take a little getting used to, patients report that it feels completely normal after just a few days.
