About Dental Crowns
To heal and protect broken teeth, deep discoloration, significant decay, and other problems, dental crowns cover the entire tooth. At DentalWorks - Grove City in Grove City, OH, crowns (sometimes called caps) are strong, durable covers that fit snugly over the the tooth above the gumline in cases where a cavity is too large to be filled with a tooth-colored filling or if the tooth is broken and needs protection. Crowns can also be used to mask a discolored tooth or to add to the stability to a dental bridge. Crowns by our dentists at DentalWorks - Grove City can be ceramic, metal, or porcelain, depending on the location of the crown. The molar and premolar teeth usually benefit from the extra strength of metal, while the visible teeth look better with porcelain or ceramic crowns, which are colored to match the patient's natural teeth.

What to Expect with Dental Crowns
To create a custom crown, our dentists first prepare the tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel, then taking digital X-rays and impressions of the tooth, which will be sent to the dental laboratory. A temporary crown can be placed on the tooth while the customized crown is being crafted. When the customized crown is returned to DentalWorks - Grove City in Grove City, OH, our dentists will carefully bond and fit the crown on the tooth. Our dentists may adjust the crown for the best fit.
Dental Crowns Treatment Aftercare
Some patients may experience temporary discomfort or tooth sensitivity, but the majority of patients do not have any pain after a crown is set. With proper home care and regular dental examinations and cleanings, a crown may last for 10 - 40 years, depending on the material and position of the crown. In some cases, a cavity or bacterial infection may build under the crown, which may require a root canal or other procedure.
