About Dental Crowns
To heal and protect chipped teeth, discolored enamel, considerable decay, and different issues, dental crowns sit over the visible portion of the tooth. At DentalWorks - Stow in Stow, OH, crowns (also known as caps) are tough, lasting covers that fit closely over the the tooth above the gumline to cover where a dental cavity is too sizeable to be fixed with a regular filling or if a tooth is damaged and must have protection. Crowns can also be helpful to conceal a different color tooth or adding stability to a dental bridge. Crowns by our dentists at DentalWorks - Stow can be ceramic, metal, or porcelain, according to the location of the crown. The molar and premolar teeth typically are helped by the increased strength of metal, but the front teeth look more natural with porcelain or ceramic crowns, which are dyed to be the same as the patient's natural teeth.

What to Expect with Dental Crowns
To make a personalized crown, our dentists first ready the tooth by filing off a slender layer of enamel, and then taking digital X-rays and molds of the tooth, which will be taken to the nearest dental lab. A temporary crown may be used to cover the tooth while the customized crown is being crafted. As soon as the customized crown is returned to DentalWorks - Stow in Stow, OH, our dentists will carefully bond and fit the crown on top of the tooth. Our dentists will alter the crown for the best fit.
Dental Crowns Treatment Aftercare
Some patients will feel brief tenderness or sensitivity to hot and cold, although the majority of patients will not feel any soreness after the crown is set. With ideal home care and routine dental examinations and cleanings, a dental cap will stay in place for anywhere from 10 - 40 years, depending on the material and position of the crown. Some patients may have a cavity or bacterial infection will build below the crown, which will need a root canal treatment or a different procedure.
