About Dental Crowns

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.


Crown

It is a tooth-shaped "cap", which is put over a tooth, to cover the tooth to restore its strength, shape and size, and enhance its appearance.


Why is a dental crown required?
  • For protecting a weak tooth (for example, from decay) from shattering or to hold jointly areas of a cracked tooth
  • To restore a severely worn down tooth or an already broken tooth or a tooth
  • To support and cover a tooth with a huge filling when there is not plenty of tooth left
  • To hold a dental bridge in position
  • To cover severely discolored or misshapen teeth
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To make a cosmetic modification
  • For kids, a crown might be used on primary (baby) teeth so as to
  • Save a tooth which has been damaged by decay, hence unable to support a filling.
  • Protect the teeth of a child at high risk for tooth decay, particularly when a child has trouble maintaining day-to-day oral hygiene.
  • Reduce the frequency of general anesthesia for kids unable due to medical history, age, behavior, to totally cooperate with the requirements of the right dental care.

In this kind of cases, a pediatric dentist will probably recommend a stainless steel crown.


What kinds of crowns are available?
  • Metals
  • Temporary versus permanent
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal
  • Stainless steel
  • All-resin
  • All-porcelain or all-ceramic
  • Milled or zirconia crown

What steps are part of preparing a tooth for a crown?
  • Preparing a tooth for a crown often needs two visits to the dentist; the initial step entails assessing and preparing the tooth, the second visit entails placement of the permanent crown.

How must I look after my temporary dental crown?

  • Avoid chewy, sticky foods, (for instance, caramel, chewing gum)
  • Reduce use of the side of your mouth with the temporary crown. Change the bulk of the chewing to the other side without crown.
  • Avoid chewing hard
  • Slide flossing material out rather instead of lifting out when cleaning your teeth.

What issues could grow with a dental crown?
  • Chipped crown.
  • Discomfort Sensitivity or discomfort.
  • Loose crown.
  • Dark line on crowned tooth close to the gum line.
  • Crown falls off.

How long do dental crowns last?

Typically, dental crowns last between 5 and fifteen years. The life span of a crown is determined by the level of "wear and tear" the crown is subjected to, how well you adhere to good oral hygiene habits, and your personal mouth-related practices (you must avoid such habits as using your teeth to open packaging, chewing ice, clenching or grinding teeth, and biting fingernails.).


Does a crowned tooth need special care?

While a crowned tooth doesn't need any special care, keep in mind that just because a tooth is crowned doesn't imply the tooth is protected from gum diseases or decay. It is advisable to good oral hygiene habits, which include brushing your teeth at least twice daily, flossing, particularly around the crown area where the gum meets the tooth, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash at least once daily.
