What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a porcelain “cap” for your damaged tooth. Once correctly fitted, it’ll protect and beautify your pearly white. This crown will keep bacteria from reaching the tooth’s pulp even as it hides the prior decay or damage.


Due to their effects, good dental crown candidates have one (or more) of the following:


  • An old silver filling that damaged a tooth
  • Cavities that can’t be fixed with fillings
  • A cracked or broken tooth
  • Teeth that are worn down by bruxism
  • A tooth that just had root canal therapy


All that said, consult our dentists before you commit to anything. They’ll perform an oral exam to assess your tooth (or teeth). From there, they’ll know whether the dental crown(s) suits you.

The Dental Crown Process

A typical crown treatment involves two dental visits. The first of these appointments “preps” your tooth for restoration. In contrast, the second visit will deliver and place your final crown.


During the first visit, our dental team will prepare your tooth for its crown. This “prep” generally means shaving off bits of the enamel layer. (That way, the crown will fit well.) We’ll then make an impression of the prepped tooth. Later, a dental lab will use the resulting model to craft your crown. You’ll wear a temporary restoration while that crafting is being done.


The second appointment takes place when your crown is ready. When you arrive for it, Dr. Miller will carefully place your cap on the tooth. This process is painless and won’t involve sedation. After placement, we’ll just make last-minute changes to ensure a good fit. We’ll then polish the crown once it’s fully in place. Afterward, you’ll be ready to enjoy your repaired grin!

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown

A decayed or damaged tooth causes various issues when left unchecked. However, a dental crown will prevent such problems. It’ll ensure you enjoy benefits like:


  • A Gorgeous Grin – Our dental crowns are made of porcelain, so they’re tooth-colored and lifelike. They’ll blend well with your adjacent teeth.
  • Versatile Effects  Dental crowns can fix several oral issues, as they cover the whole surfaces of teeth. They can address cavities, tooth chips, fractures, and more!
  • Stronger Teeth – A porcelain crown is pretty darn durable. As such, it’ll protect the tooth it covers from bacteria. You’ll then be safe from needing a root canal or tooth extraction.
  • Lasting Results – When well-maintained, a dental crown can last over 15 years. That being said, remember to brush, floss, and see your dentist often!
