Crowns Q & A

Dobson Warner Dentistry

What is a crown?

A crown is a cap or covering for a damaged tooth that restores your tooth’s form, function, and strength. Crowns are also placed on top of dental implants. A crown is typically made of porcelain, but other materials such as ceramic, resin, or metal may also be used.

Dobson Warner Dentistry excels in innovative restorative dentistry. Once in place, no one will even know you have a dental crown. It beautifully blends with your natural teeth.

Why do I need a dental crown?

Crowns are useful for:

  • Protecting a tooth compromised from decay
  • Covering a dental implant
  • Restoring a broken tooth
  • Sheltering a tooth after a root canal
  • Disguising a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Preventing a tooth from fracturing

At your consultation, Dr. Trang carefully inspects your tooth to ensure that a dental crown is your best option. He tells you about each step in the process so you know exactly what to expect.

How do I know if I need a dental crown?

There are some indicators that may mean you need a dental crown, such as:

  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • A hole in your tooth
  • A recent root canal
  • A bridge is needed
  • Your tooth is breaking or feels fragile

To save your tooth, it’s important to see your dentist for an evaluation. Dr. Trang uses the latest materials and technologies to place the highest quality dental crowns.

What can I expect during a crown installation?

After a comprehensive exam to make sure your oral health is in good standing and you have proper bone structure, Dr. Trang administers a local anesthetic to help you relax and numb the area. He removes decay and preps the tooth for the crown.

The team mixes a flavored paste and makes an impression of the tooth for the lab. Dr. Trang fits you with a temporary crown to protect your tooth and gums until your final crown is ready. At your second appointment, he pops off the temporary crown and permanently adheres the final crown.
