Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns at Linglestown Family Dental, Harrisburg, PA

Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are protective coverings that are placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance.  They are custom-made to fit over the entire tooth, from the gum line to the chewing surface, providing a natural-looking and functional solution for a variety of dental issues.

There are several reasons why a dentist might recommend a dental crown.  A crown is commonly used to repair teeth that have extensive decay or damage.  They are also used to protect weak or cracked teeth.  Additionally, they are used to restore teeth after root canal treatment, as the crown provides protection and strength to the weakened tooth.

The process of getting a crown typically involves multiple steps.  Initially, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decayed or damaged portions and shaping it to accommodate the crown.  An impression or digital scan of the prepared tooth is then taken to ensure an accurate fit.  The impression is sent to a dental laboratory where skilled technicians fabricate the crown to match the color, size, and shape of the patient’s natural teeth.  In the meantime, a temporary crown may be placed to protect the tooth.

During the final appointment, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is carefully fitted and bonded onto the tooth using dental cement.  The dentist will ensure that the crown fits properly and check the patient’s bite to ensure proper alignment.  With proper care and regular dental hygiene, dental crowns can last for many years.

Crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these materials.  The choice of material depends on factors such as the location of the tooth, the patient’s aesthetic preferences, and the functional requirements of the tooth.

Dental crowns are versatile restorations that provide both functional and aesthetic benefits.  They offer a long-lasting solution for damaged or weakened teeth, restoring their appearance, strength, and functionality.  If you have any concerns about the condition of your teeth, it is best to consult with us so we can assess your specific needs and recommend the most appropriate treatment, which may include dental crowns.  Call Linglestown Family Dental in Harrisburg, PA, for an appointment.
