Dental Crown

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is like a cap that will cover the part of your tooth visible in the oral cavity. It plays a role in protecting the remaining structure of your tooth while restoring its original shape, size and colour.

What are the types of Dental crown?

There are a variety of options available at GoBest Dentist for you to choose from. This includes:

Metal Crown

Ceramic crown

Porcelain crown

Composite resin crown

Gold crown

Combination of all materials.

The choice of material for your crown depends on many factors.

The location of the tooth which requires a crown plays a key role in material selection. A crown located in the front should be more aesthetically pleasing while the crown located more posteriorly should be superior in strength.

All the above materials require different thickness in order to provide adequate strength to bear the chewing forces. This will determine the amount of cutting required for a particular crown. Metal crown requires minimum thickness and therefore preserves maximum natural tooth. Thus, remaining tooth structure plays a crucial role in deciding the material for the crown.

It is necessary to place the margin of your crown over healthy, sound tooth structure. Thus, the position of your gum line will help us decide which crown should will be best for you.

What are the problems that I can expect with a dental crown?

Dental crowns are usually as comfortable as your natural tooth. But there are some minor issues that you might face over time.

1. Sensitivity of the concerned tooth
If your tooth is not root canal treated, it is likely that you will feel sensitivity in the prepared tooth once the anaesthesia wards off. This is temporary and will go once the crown is cemented to your tooth. Sometimes you may feel sensitivity for some days after the cementation of crown. Brushing with an anti-sensitivity tooth paste will help.

2. Pain on biting
If you feel pain while you bite normally on your crown, it usually means that the crown is high on your tooth. Don’t worry, the problem can be very easily solved once you inform us.

3. Chipping off
It is common for an all porcelain crown to get chipped. A small chip can be repaired in the mouth itself with the crown intact. A bigger chip or multiple chips may require removal of crown and re-fabrication.

4. Loosening or removal of crown
Sometimes the cement used to stick the crown to the tooth might wash off or the underlying tooth might catch decay. Both the cases will lead to loosening or removal of your crown. Contact us immediately for proper guidance under such situation.

5. Dark line on your crown near gum line
It is nothing but the metal showing off in your porcelain fused to metal crown. If it is aesthetically unpleasant, you need to get it replaced by an all ceramic crown.
