Dental Crowns

Important Appointments for Healthy Smiles

A dental crown or cap is a tooth-shaped cover placed over a tooth to protect it and restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. It can be used to strengthen and protect a weak or damaged tooth when fillings cannot or to cover a tooth that is severely discolored and cannot be whitened with whitening treatments. 

At Blue Sage Dental, we can design dental crowns made from gold, metal alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Porcelain crowns best mimic the natural tooth color because they contain no metal, which allows them to reflect light similarly to natural teeth. Metal crowns are recommended for use in the back of the mouth, where the teeth must withstand more pressure.

The Procedure for Dental Crowns

A crown is a custom-made type of restoration that fits over your existing tooth structure like a cap. A crown restores the strength and appearance of a tooth that has been damaged by tooth decay or trauma and is at risk of breaking. It also improves the appearance of teeth that are broken, worn down, or discolored. 

The dentist will prepare your tooth for the dental crown by removing some of the enamel to accommodate the crown. Once your tooth is prepared, an impression will be made and sent to a lab where your crown will be created. During your next visit, we will fit and place your permanent crown. Your new crown will restore full function to your tooth and protect it from further damage.  

After your crown is in place, you can care for it the same way you care for your natural teeth with regular brushing, flossing, and visiting our dentist for routine visits twice a year.

The Advantages of Dental Crowns

If a tooth has been severely damaged or decayed to the point where it cannot be restored with another type of dental restoration, our dentist may recommend getting a dental crown. A crown can cover the tooth and restore its shape and function.  

Crowns are natural-looking restorations and provide strength and stability to a damaged or broken tooth. In addition to restoring the look of a damaged tooth, a crown can also improve a patient’s bite. The crown fits securely over the affected tooth to protect it from further damage and restores your smile’s integrity.
