How a crown is done:

1- Your dentist gives you a local anesthetic.

2- To make room for the crown, your dentist files down the tooth that needs to be restored.

3- An impression of the filed-down tooth and nearby teeth is taken. This impression is used to custom make your final crown. The crown is built using restorative material (material used for fillings) based on the impression. The final crown will be the right shape for your mouth.

4- Until your final crown is ready, your dentist places a temporary crown over the tooth that needs to be restored. The temporary crown is made from an impression of your tooth before it was filed down. It protects your tooth until the final crown is ready. A temporary crown may not have the same shape and colour as a final crown.

5- On your next visit, your dentist takes off the temporary crown and puts on the final one. Your dentist checks to make sure the crown is the right fit, shape, colour and bite. If it is, your dentist cements the crown into place.

These are the steps dentists most often follow in making a crown, but your tooth may need special care. You may need orthodontic treatment, gum treatment or root canal treatment.

It may take 2 or 3 visits to your dentist, over a 1 week period (min 4 days)

 

Different types of crowns: Crowns are made from various types of materials. Depending on which tooth needs a crown, your dentist will suggest a material, or combination of materials, that is right for you.

  • Gold crowns. They generally last a long time and won’t chip or break. They tend not to wear down your opposing natural teeth. However, the gold colour does not look natural, particularly on front teeth.They are also expensive
  • Porcelain-fused-to-titanium crowns look natural and are stronger than porcelain or composite crowns. They won’t chip as easily as porcelain or ceramic crowns. However, depending on their design, the metal may show if your gums are thin or shrink.
  • Full Porcelain crowns look the most natural. However, they are more brittle than metal or composite and may chip more easily. Because of this, they are not usually placed on back teeth but are the preferred type for appearance

What else should I know? Crowns are strong and last a long time if you take good care of them. Brush and floss your crown, just like you clean your natural teeth.

Like your natural teeth, remember not to bite down on hard objects or use your teeth to open or cut things.
