Dental Crowns FAQ

Thinking about getting a dental crown? We’ve answered some of our patients’ most frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions, contact our office and one of our experienced team members would be happy to answer them for you.

What are dental crowns used for?

Dental crowns can be used for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. Crowns can:

  • Cover discolored or misshapen teeth.
  • Preserve a cracked or chipped tooth.
  • Protect a weak tooth from decay.
  • Support a tooth with a large filling.

What steps are involved in getting a dental crown?

The dental crown process is usually completed in two visits. At your first appointment, we’ll reshape your tooth in order for your crown to fit properly. Then, we’ll take impressions of your tooth and send them to our lab. While the lab creates your crown, we’ll place a temporary one in the meantime. Once we receive your custom-made crown, you’ll come in for your second appointment, and we’ll bond the crown to your tooth and make sure it fits.

What material are dental crowns made of?

Dental crowns come in a wide range of materials. During your consultation, Dr. Jones will recommend which material fits your unique needs and your budget. Permanent dental crowns can be made of:

  • Metal
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal
  • Resin
  • Porcelain
  • Ceramic

How long do dental crowns last?

The lifespan of a dental crown depends on the average wear and tear of the crown, your dental habits, and more. However, with proper care, your crown can last for years. If you currently need a dental crown replacement, our team can create and place a new crown for you. Contact our office to schedule your appointment.
