Dental CrownsAn Overview

Are you in pain from an old tooth crown? Is your current dental crown discolored, stand out too much, or make your smile look unnatural?

Dental crowns are a versatile dental restoration used to address both cosmetic and restorative dental concerns. Your dentist at Sudbury Dental Arts replaces old crowns and places new, modern tooth crowns. The dental crown is like a cap that fits snugly over all sides of the tooth or can be secured using a dental implant.

Dental Crowns What to Expect

All dental crowns are custom designed and fabricated to meet your specific cosmetic goals. Each crown is crafted to fit comfortably and to enhance the overall aesthetic of your smile. The reason you choose to receive a dental crown will dictate your treatment procedure. Dr. Gauthier will explain your treatment plan in detail with you so that you fully understand your process.

  • To Address Cosmetic Concerns
    When used to address cosmetic concerns, the dental crown will be designed to sit on the damaged or discolored tooth. The affected tooth will be prepared to create room for the dental crown. A mold of your tooth will be taken and used to create the dental crown for a precise fit. Once the dental crown is fabricated, it will be approved by the patient and permanently bonded in place.
  • To Stabilize a Root Canal
    A root canal treatment removes the infected or diseased pulp from inside a tooth, leaving the tooth structure compromised. Most patients will receive a dental crown to stabilize the tooth and to prevent future damage. A dental crown will be custom designed and placed over the treated tooth. The dental crown is bonded in place.
  • To Replace a Missing Tooth
    Dental crowns are commonly combined with a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth.

Dental Crowns FAQs

Do you repair or replace damaged dental crowns?

Yes, we will evaluate the condition of your dental crown and will work with you to fix or replace your broken crown to restore your smile.

Are dental crowns covered by dental insurance?

In many cases, your dental insurance benefits may cover at least part of your dental crown. We will work with you to determine your portion of the treatment cost. We also accept a range of payment options and work with third party vendors for dental care financing.

Are temporary crowns necessary?

Yes, a temporary dental crown is important to protect your oral health while you wait for your permanent crown to be made. A temporary will protect the gums, prevent teeth from shifting and make chewing food easier. However, they are more fragile and will require special care. They should be kept clean and you should avoid chewing hard and sticky foods.

What is the dental crown process like?

The dental crown process will require two visits. At the first visit, the tooth will be prepared. Old fillings, crowns and decayed portions of the tooth will be removed. The tooth will be reduced and several impressions will be taken. A temporary crown will be placed to protect the tooth until the permanent one is ready. At the second visit, the crown will be fitted and cemented into place.
