Dental Crowns FAQ
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown can be described as a cap resembling a tooth in shape. Dentists employ these crowns to repair teeth that are fragile, fractured, or affected by decay.
The crown is designed to encase the entire tooth like a well-fitting hat. To guarantee an accurate fit, the dentist will securely remove a minor portion of enamel before affixing the new crown.
Dental professionals create these crowns using materials such as resin, metal, and porcelain.
Typically, how long does a dental crown last?
On average, dental crowns tend to last between five to fifteen years. Observing signs of wear, deterioration, or harm indicates the need for replacing the dental crown.
When will you need a dental crown?
Crowns fulfil various roles. A dental crown might be necessary when:
- Reinforcing a compromised tooth's strength.
- Safeguarding and providing support to a fractured tooth.
- Renewing a tooth that has been worn down or fractured.
- Securing a dental bridge firmly in position.
- Concealing a tooth with intense staining a discolouration.
- Enveloping a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment.
- Encasing a dental implant.
