Do You Need A Crown?

At Nabeta Dentistry, we are dedicated to providing our patients with high-quality dental care, including the application of dental crowns. A dental crown is a custom-fitted cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, strength, size, and appearance. Crowns are a versatile treatment option for various dental issues.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth. It covers the tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and improve its appearance. Crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of these materials.

When is a Crown Needed?

Crowns are used in several scenarios, including:

  • Restoring a broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down.
  • Covering and supporting a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left.
  • Protecting a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth.
  • Holding a dental bridge in place.
  • Covering misshapen or severely discolored teeth.
  • Covering a dental implant.
  • Cosmetic modification.

Consultation and Planning: During your initial visit, we conduct a thorough examination, which may include X-rays, to determine if a crown is suitable for your dental needs.

Tooth Preparation: The tooth is reshaped to make room for the crown. If additional tooth structure is needed to support the crown, a filling material may be used to build up the tooth.

Digital Scan and Crown Fabrication: A digital scan of the tooth is taken to create a custom crown. We ensure the crown matches the shape, color, and bite of your natural teeth.

Temporary Crown: While your permanent crown is being made, a temporary crown is placed to protect the prepared tooth.

Crown Fitting: Once your crown is ready, we schedule a fitting. The temporary crown is removed, and the new crown is adjusted as needed for a perfect fit and bite.

Cementing the Crown: When the fit is verified, the crown is cemented onto your tooth, fully encasing the visible portion of the tooth above the gum line.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Crowns require the same level of care as your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are vital to maintaining your crown and overall oral health.
