The dentist just told you you need a dental crown. Getting crowns may seem unnecessary to you. Why not just have it extracted and possibly save some money since many insurances can cover an extraction?

Your future health is at stake. Premature tooth extractions, or extractions at any time, whether for reasons of decay or injury, can have lasting consequences for the surrounding teeth, gums and bone.

Crowns can help prevent the need of extractions!

The teeth may shift causing major issues. Overcrowding and misalignment of teeth can result from this shift, and it’s likely that future orthodontic care will be required. It may also pave the way for a wide variety of other dental procedures.

To avoid further dental work and expense, most dentists would advise replacing teeth with a crown rather than extracting it.

Crowning a Tooth:

A 5 Step Process

There are typically five key phases once you decide to proceed with the crown.

  1. Inquire About Available Crowns
    Crowns for teeth can vary greatly in design. There are a variety of resources to choose from depending on your  requirements and interests. Depending on the shape of your teeth and aesthetic preferences, a different crown material may be recommended. Every substance has its advantages and disadvantages.
  2. Tooth Preparation
    The tooth is initially prepared so that a crown can be placed over it. The injured tooth is reshaped during this procedure, creating a flat surface on which to securely attach the crown.
  3. Impressions
    The next thing to do is have dental impressions made. The use of dental putty or a digital scanner to create an impression. The crown is fabricated in a laboratory after an impression is taken of the tooth. If a porcelain crown is the best option, your dentist will need to choose a tint that closely matches your child’s teeth.
  4. Temporary Crown
    A temporary crown will be placed over the newly shaped tooth while the permanent crown is being made.
  5. Putting on the Lasting Crown
    The appointment to have the permanent crown fitted will be scheduled once it is ready. The dentist will first use local anesthesia to numb the tooth and the gums around it. Your child will be completely pain-free and relaxed thanks to this anesthetic.

After my dental crown placed, what can I expect?

Restrain from eating right after the treatment until the numbness has worn off entirely. 

After the surgery, most you might feel uncomfortable for at least 24 hours. It hurts because the pulp in your tooth and the gums around your tooth are being irritated. Pain can be relieved with over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the discomfort persists for more than 24 hours, you should make an appointment with your dentist immediately.
