When Do I Need a Dental Crown?

A crown covers the entirety of a tooth's surface, restoring strength and adjusting the appearance. Crowns can repair damage from tooth decay or injury, as well as enhance the aesthetic of the tooth.

Dental crowns might be a suitable solution for teeth that are:

  • Worn

  • Cracked

  • Broken

  • Extremely stained

  • Oddly shaped

Crowns are also often used to support other restorations. If a tooth has been filled and little natural structure remains, a crown can help provide stability. A crown is bonded on each end of a dental bridge to anchor the restoration to surrounding natural teeth, and crowns are commonly the finishing touch for patients who have replaced a missing tooth using dental implants.

Benefits of a Dental Crown

Our Greece dentists know that patients who restore the health of a tooth also want the tooth to look like new, too. For this reason, our dental team is pleased to provide all-porcelain crowns for the vast majority of cases involving tooth repair.

Porcelain dental restorations have a number of advantages over old-fashioned metal designs, including:

  • Lifelike look

  • Functional strength

  • Comfortable design

  • Durability – porcelain crowns can last 10 years or more

  • Natural results – the color of the porcelain is matched to the natural shade of your smile

  • Easy maintenance – good oral hygiene should keep the crown intact

Each crown is customized to fit the size, shape, and structure of the underlying tooth. Our dentists will take an impression of your teeth so the lab can fabricate a crown that meets your individual needs. When the crown returns from the lab, Dr. Sussman and Dr. Pogal will see how it fits and adjust the porcelain as needed so your tooth is properly covered and the restoration doesn't interfere with surrounding teeth.
