What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is essentially a cap to cover your tooth (or teeth) in order to protect it from being damaged or to improve the appearance of your smile.

Crowns for teeth are usually recommended for patients who are missing natural tooth structure, have large restorations, root canal treated teeth, or for those who have weak teeth that need to be protected.

Types of Dental Crowns for Teeth

There are several different types of crowns for teeth. Depending on your needs, a dentist may recommend porcelain dental crowns, ceramics, gold alloy, porcelain bonded to metal, zirconia, or metal alloys.

Here at The Chicago Dental Studio, we use CEREC technology, which is a state-of-the-art method of reconstructing tooth restorations. CEREC uses computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to offer single-day restorations to our patients.

Our CEREC crowns are made from e.max crown material (lithium disilicate) which is incredibly durable and completely metal-free, creating a better aesthetic appearance.

What the Dental Crown Procedure Is Like

The dental crown procedure varies depending on whether or not you get a same-day crown or a multi-day crown. Multi-day crowns usually require you to go in to see your dentist twice while single day crowns require only one visit to your dentist.

Same-Day Dental Crowns Procedure

Here’s a breakdown of the dental crowns procedure according to a same-day and multiple-day procedure:

  • Your dentist will take a digital scan of your mouth and design your crown on the CEREC computer, allowing for a completely customized dental crown with a precise fit.
  • Once your crown is designed, it is milled out in the CEREC milling machine. It is then fitted in your mouth to ensure a perfect fit and finally, heated in the CEREC speedfire furnace to finalize your crown.
  • Your dentist will then cement the crown into place — a quick and easy process that completes the crown procedure in a single visit.

The multi-day dental crown procedure is similar to the same-day procedure but with additional steps that require more time and a 3rd party dental lab to manufacture the restoration.

Dental Crown FAQs

A tooth crown’s lifespan varies depending on oral care, nutrition, and lifestyle choices. With the right upkeep, crowns can last up to 15 years on average. For the crown to last a long time and to be monitored for damage, routine dental examinations and care are essential.

Because a local anesthetic is used to numb the tooth during the operation, getting a crown usually causes little to no discomfort. Some patients may feel pressure or minor sensitivity, although most people can manage it well. Over-the-counter painkillers can typically be used to treat any discomfort that may arise following the treatment.

Over time, crowns may come loose for various reasons, including normal wear and tear, recurring decay, or modifications to the tooth’s underlying anatomy. Trauma, teeth grinding, and poor dental hygiene can all lead to loose crowns. Having routine dental exams makes it easier to spot loose crown problems early on and take immediate action.

Dental crowns may have some dangers or side effects, including transient sensitivity or soreness following implantation, though these normally disappear. In rare cases, crown materials may cause allergic responses. Crowns can also lead to gum disease and decay if they are not fitted or maintained properly. Regular dental care reduces these risks.

No, not necessarily. Following a root canal, a crown is frequently advised to preserve and restore the strength and functionality of the tooth. Root canal therapy is not necessary for all crowned teeth, though. Avoiding the need for a root canal by placing crowns on teeth with significant decay, fractures, or aesthetic flaws is possible.
