Dental Crowns

When it comes to a dental fix, many of us head to our search browser to type in “dental near me Naperville” to find one close to us. We want to end this by letting you know that Naperville Commons Dental can be your one-stop dental shop. From professional dental cleanings to restorative and cosmetic dentistry, we have it all. If you are looking to improve your overall teeth appearance, consider dental crowns.

What Is A Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that’s placed over individual teeth in order to help improve the size and strength of a tooth. Weak teeth that suffer from decay can benefit from dental crowns. Our crowns can be made from stainless steel, all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic. Make sure you listen to your dentist’s recommendation on which crown to pick.

Do You Need One?

If you’re considering getting this type of restorative dentistry, consider the type of tooth situation you have and if a crown would be the best solution. You may consider getting a dental crown if:

  • You have a weak tooth that needs to be protected
  • You need to restore an already broken tooth that has been worn down
  • You need to cover and support a tooth that already has a filling but there is not a lot of tooth left
  • You’re looking to cover a misshapen or severely discolored tooth

The Advantages

When considering dental crowns for yourself, make sure you read about the advantages that they have to offer. Some benefits of a dental crown may include:

  • Extra Support: A crown can support a tooth that has been significantly damaged by decay.
  • Protection: If you have a tooth that has worn away from being damaged or if you’ve recently received a root canal procedure, a crown can protect the tooth that had work done.
  • Appearance Improvement: A crown changes the shape and color of a tooth to match the rest of your smile, ultimately improving the appearance of your look. 
  • The Procedure: Crowns are less invasive than traditional dentures because they don’t require having your entire tooth extracted from your mouth. There’s also a shorter recovery period, allowing you to get back to your normal routine quicker.

The Process

If you and your dentist have discussed that a crown is the best option, you are now ready to prepare the tooth. At your first visit, X-rays will be taken to check the roots of the tooth. This shows your dentist if there is any extensive decay or if there’s a risk of infection or injury to the tooth’s pulp. If there is an infection, a root canal procedure may be recommended before the crown is placed. 

If there is no infection, your dentist will numb the area, and file down the chewing surface of the tooth receiving the crown. This helps make room for the crown, allowing it to fit nicely into your mouth. Now that the tooth is reshaped, we will use paste or putty to make an impression of the tooth, which is then sent to the dental lab. The crown comes back in three weeks’ time and you’ll be able to take out the temporary crown for the permanent one.
