Get Your Beautiful Smile Back with Dental Crowns

If your tooth is weakened due to decay or damage, you may be concerned about the potential risks. A damaged tooth could lead to further damage that might require root canal therapy or even tooth extraction. Getting a dental crown can help strengthen your teeth and improve their appearance.

A dental crown is like a cap made of either porcelain or composite resin. It covers the visible area of the tooth, protecting its remaining structure and restoring its original shape, size, and colour. A dental crown will bring back your beautiful smile while safeguarding the remaining natural tooth structure from further harm.

At Joondanna Family Dental, our team of dentists genuinely cares about our patients’ dental health and overall well-being. So, if you have a decayed or damaged tooth that may be at risk, contact us today and let us help you get back on track with healthy, beautiful teeth that can withstand any challenge thrown their way!

Advantages

Advantages of Dental Crowns

Provides Protection to Prevent Further Tooth Damage: A crown helps protect a weak tooth from fracture. A filling is needed first to repair the damage or decay and then a crown is used to strengthen a weak tooth.

Whether you have tooth decay or recently had a root canal, a dental crown from Joondanna Family Dental can provide the extra protection your tooth needs to stay healthy and strong.

FAQs

FAQs about Dental Crowns

These are some signs that you may need dental crowns:

  1. Decayed teeth
  2. Large cavities
  3. Chipped, cracked, or fractured tooth
  4. Root canal-treated tooth
  5. Severely worn down teeth
  6. Misshapen or uneven teeth
  7. Discoloured teeth
  8. Fractured fillings

Dental crowns and veneers are both restorative dentistry procedures intended to restore your teeth’s function and appearance. The primary difference between the two treatment options is that dental crowns cover your entire tooth, whereas dental veneers cover only the front surface of your tooth.

While dental crowns can also be used for cosmetic enhancements, their primary purpose is to protect a damaged or decayed tooth. Crowns are mostly used to restore teeth that are severely decayed or have undergone root canal therapy. On the other hand, the main purpose of dental veneers is to provide an improved aesthetic look for teeth that are broken, discoloured, or misshapen. Dental veneers improve the aesthetics of healthy teeth.

The dental procedure for a crown typically requires two appointments. Your dentist will inspect and prepare your tooth during your first visit. Tooth preparation involves the removal of a thin layer of your natural tooth enamel. Then, they will take an impression of your prepared tooth. Your impression will be sent to a dental laboratory, where a dental technician will use it to make your crown. Your crown may be completed a few weeks later, and your dentist may fit you with a temporary crown.

When your permanent dental crown has been completed, you will return for a second visit to have your dental crown cemented onto your tooth.

The following are some potential risks and side effects associated with dental crowns:

  1. Sensitive teeth:
    Crowned teeth are more susceptible to sensitivity. But if you feel pain when you bite or chew with your crowned tooth, it is possible that the crown is not properly fitted. Consult your dental professional if this occurs.
  2. Allergic reaction:
    Metals used in some crowns may cause allergic reactions in some people. However, it is rare.
  3. Gum disease:
    Over time, receding gums can make your teeth more sensitive, particularly in the areas not covered by a crown. If you notice that your gums around your crown are uncomfortable or irritated, or if the area starts to bleed, you may have gingivitis.
  4. Dark line:
    If you have a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, you might see a dark line near the gumline. Dark lines can occur next to the gum line of your crowned teeth, which may be cosmetically unattractive. Alternatively, you can choose an all-ceramic crown or an all-porcelain crown.
  5. Chipped crown:
    Some crowns chip more easily than others, such as porcelain crowns. Your dentist may be able to restore minor chips.
  6. Loose crown:
    Your crown may become loose or even fall out if there is not enough cement holding it in place or if the tooth is decayed. Consult your dentist if your crown feels wobbly or loose.
The durability of dental crowns is dependent on how you take care of them. They usually last around five to fifteen years, but some last longer. A dental crown’s life expectancy is affected by your oral hygiene and the amount of stress to which it is exposed.
There is no special maintenance required for dental crowns. However, your gums must still be kept healthy to prevent tooth decay. It is a necessity to practice good oral hygiene. Maintain good oral health and take care of your crown by brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and flossing every day. If you have porcelain crowns, avoid biting into hard foods to prevent them from breaking. It is also recommended to schedule regular maintenance visits with your dentist for routine dental check-ups and professional cleanings.

If your dental crown chips, you should contact your dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist will tell you if it can wait for a regular appointment or if it is an emergency. It is generally safe to wait a couple of days unless the damage is jagged and causing you pain.

On the other hand, if your crown falls off, retrieve it and store it safely. Then, contact your dentist immediately. If you have a crown, chances are you have a damaged, decayed, or weak tooth. A crownless tooth will deteriorate quickly if the crown is not replaced promptly. By not getting a dental crown back on a tooth, the tooth may become loose, crumble into pieces, or fall out.

There may be several reasons why you are experiencing pain in your crowned tooth. A crowned tooth that hurts when you bite could be infected. A tooth that did not undergo root canal therapy before a crown was placed still contains nerves. An infection can occur when a crown places pressure on a traumatised nerve. A filling underneath the crown that leaks bacteria can also lead to a nerve infection. Another reason why you experience pain when biting could be an ill-fitting crown. The crown could be too thick on the tooth.

Treatment may vary depending on the cause and severity of dental crown pain. If you’re unable to visit your dentist, you can take over-the-counter pain medications or gargle with a saltwater rinse. However, this may not be enough. It is still best to consult with your dentist. Severe and persistent may necessitate removal of the tooth, replacement of the crown, performing a root canal, or maybe just a few reductions in the thickness of the crown.
