Calm Spring Dental is proud to offer dental crowns, skillfully, and artistically created to restore weak, damaged, or missing teeth. We are committed to utilizing cutting-edge technology and trusted techniques to deliver durable, precise restorations for long-term healthy smiles.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A crown, or cap, is a dental restoration that fully encases the visible portion of a tooth to repair its shape or size, increase its strength, or enhance its performance. We offer dental crowns in a variety of materials to suit your unique dental and aesthetic needs. We can customize your new restorations to blend in with your surrounding teeth, with incredibly natural-looking results.

When Do I Need A Dental Crown?

There are a variety of reasons you would require a crown, but these are the most common scenarios:

  • Damaged or Weakened Teeth: Crowns protect teeth with large cavities that cannot be repaired with traditional fillings. They can also restore teeth that are weak, broken, or worn.
  • Cosmetic Reasons: Dental crowns can mask cosmetic imperfections, including stained, discolored, misshapen, or misaligned teeth, with incredibly natural-looking results.
  • After Root Canal Therapy: Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy are weakened and prone to fracturing. Dental crowns are routinely used to protect teeth after treatment to preserve them and restore their strength, form, and function.
  • Covering Dental Implants: Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a secure foundation to hold dental crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures in place, restoring beautiful and functional smiles.
  • Pain Relief: Patients with cracked tooth syndrome, a condition involving a fracture inside a tooth, report significant pain relief using dental crowns.

What Is the Dental Crown Procedure?

The procedure to design and place your dental crown will depend, in part, on the material you choose for your restoration. However, most crowns require two separate office visits. The first appointment typically involves numbing your mouth and removing any damaged or decayed parts of the tooth before reshaping it to accommodate your restoration. Next, we will take impressions of the area which our dental laboratory will use to fabricate your crown. We will use a temporary crown to protect your prepared tooth.

When your restoration is ready, you’ll come in for your follow up crown-placement appointment. We will check for a perfect fit and will permanently cement your restoration in place.

How Should You Care for Dental Crowns?

We recommend brushing and flossing regularly to maintain a clean and healthy smile. Refrain from biting down on hard objects which can chip or damage your crown. Moreover, if you habitually grind or clench your teeth, a condition known as bruxism, wearing a custom mouthguard at night will help protect your natural teeth and your restorations from damage. With proper care, your new crowns will keep you smiling with confidence for many years to come.
