Dental Crowns - Durable Solutions for Damaged Teeth

At Warrington Dental PC, we provide dental crowns as a highly effective solution for restoring and protecting teeth that are damaged, decayed, or weakened. Crowns improve not only the function but also the appearance of your teeth.

What are Dental Crowns and Why are They Used?

Dental crowns are custom-made caps placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. They are used to protect a weakened tooth, restore a broken tooth, cover a dental implant, or enhance the aesthetics of a discolored or poorly shaped tooth.

What Types of Materials are Used for Dental Crowns?

Crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, and composite resin. Porcelain and ceramic crowns are popular for their natural appearance, while metal crowns are known for their strength and durability.

What is the Process of Getting a Dental Crown?

The process typically involves two visits. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared, reshaped, and an impression is taken. A temporary crown may be placed while the custom crown is being made. On the second visit, the custom crown is fitted and cemented into place.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

With proper care, dental crowns can last many years. Their longevity depends on the material used, your oral hygiene practices, and wear and tear from biting and chewing.

How Do I Care for My Dental Crown?

Care for a dental crown involves maintaining good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing and flossing. It’s also important to avoid habits like grinding your teeth, chewing ice, or opening packaging with your teeth.
