What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a personalized, tooth-shaped restoration that fits over a damaged tooth like a cap. Each crown is custom-made using impressions that we take of your mouth. This ensures that your crown will perfectly resemble an improved version of the tooth you were born with. Crowns are most often used to restore the structure of a broken or worn-down tooth, but in some cases, we can use them to cover a cosmetically imperfect tooth. These days, crowns are typically made of dental porcelain because of the material’s resemblance to natural tooth enamel.

The Dental Crown Process

As always, the process begins with a consultation with one of our talented Putnam dentists. After we’ve pinpointed the root of the problem (like a serious crack or chip), we will begin the process of creating your dental crown. After selecting the ideal shade, we will take impressions of the tooth for the dental lab. Since we use digital impressions instead of old-school putty ones, this step will be quick and comfortable. We will provide you with a temporary crown while the lab artisans craft your permanent one. When it’s ready, you’ll return to our office so we can cement your permanent crown securely in place and review how to best take care of it!
