Types of Crowns

The different types of crowns include ceramic, porcelain, resin and stainless steel. Cosmetic crowns are typically made of porcelain or ceramic; however, the American Dental Association talks about how there are pros and cons for each kind and that it is important to consult with your dentist so they can help you find the best fit for you and your tooth.

The Procedure

The crown procedure takes two separate trips to the dentist. During your first appointment, your dentist will examine the tooth in question to make sure that i can support a crown. Next, they will start to file it down to prepare to set the crown in. However, if the tooth is severely damaged, broken or cracked, your dentist might need to fill the tooth in to ensure that it is big enough to receive the crown as opposed to rejecting it or making the tooth worse because it cannot handle it. Then the dentist will take an impression of your tooth once it is filed or filled properly, as well as your surrounding teeth, and the impression will be used to make the permanent crown. At the end of the first visit your tooth will have a temporary crown that protects it until the real crown is ready to be placed.

Your second visit occurs when your permanent crown is ready. First, the temporary crown is removed and then your dentist will position and fasten the new crown to your tooth with a special adhesive that brings everything together.
