Dental Crowns

Do you have a damaged tooth that needs a Dental Crown?

When your tooth breaks or requires a large filling that puts the tooth in danger of breaking, a dental crown is the best solution for dental care.

A filling that replaces the decayed part of a tooth does little to nothing to help strengthen the tooth. In particular, amalgam fillings weaken the tooth and make it more susceptible to breaking; composite fillings, since they bond to the tooth, will strengthen a tooth.

However, even with a composite filling, when there is a lot of tooth structure missing, a filling will not strengthen the tooth enough to protect it.

At Hylan Dental Care, we have found that in those cases, a dental crown is the best solution- a crown covers the entire tooth and is the best way to prevent fracture.

If you are looking for a solution to salvage your broken or damaged tooth, then it is time to give the gentle dentists at Hylan Dental Care a call!

FAQs about Dental Crowns

Why do I need a dental crown?

Your dentist may suggest a dental crown if you have a damage tooth that can be salvaged.

You may need a dental crown if you have:

  • A cavity that is too big for a simple filling
  • A tooth is broken, cracked, or worn down
  • A root canal treatment (a dental crown will help protect the hollow tooth)
  • A discolored or odd-shaped tooth

Whatever the reason may be for you needing one, the benefits of getting a dental crown and how it helps your oral health are great reasons to get one!

How does a dental crown help my oral health?

A dental crown helps to restore a damaged tooth's appearance, functionality, shape, and strength.

When you get your permanent crown fixed, you will be able to comfortable chew foods and show your smile! 

A crown helps to protect the rest of the natural tooth underneath of it from further damage.

Furthermore, a dental crown helps to restore your mouth's structure by filling in the gap left from a broken or damaged tooth, which helps to decrease your risk of facial collapse.

What is the process of getting a dental crown?

Getting a dental crown is typically a two-appointment process.

The tooth is prepared on the first appointment, where an impression is taken of the prepared tooth, and a temporary crown is placed.

The impression is sent to a dental laboratory where the crown is precision fabricated to fit your tooth exactly and to fit into your bite. 

In the second, follow-up appointment, your permanent dental crown is ready to be fixed to your tooth and permanently cemented.

Will a dental crown match my natural teeth?

At Hylan Dental, we understand that having a crown that doesn't match the rest of your teeth may hinder your confidence and ability to flash your smile; that's why we provide dental crowns that perfectly match the coloring of your natural teeth.

With a custom-shaded dental crown repairing your damaged tooth, there isn't anything stopping your from sharing your smile with the world!

How do I take care of my dental crown?

It is vitally important to take excellent care of your dental crown because it can break, and the tooth underneath of the crown can still get infected (like with a cavity).

To help prevent damage or infection to your dental crown, follow these steps:

  • Practice good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day
  • Be sure to use oral care products that are approved by the American Dental Association
  • Try to avoid chewing on tough foods or bite on hard products (like the cap of a pen)
  • Schedule your regular routine teeth cleanings at your dentist to maintain great oral hygiene
