Dental Crowns

Strengthening A Decayed Tooth

Cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth can be "capped" with a dental crown. A dental crown will restore your natural, functional, healthy-looking smile. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its overall appearance.

What is a Dental Crown?

To restore cracked, broken, or worn teeth, Titensor Dental may recommend that we "cap" your teeth with dental crowns. A dental crown covers your tooth completely. It fits snugly at the gum-line and protects what remains of your natural tooth.

When is a Dental Crown Recommended?

Dr. Titensor recommends dental crowns when

  • a crown is needed to cover and support a tooth with a large filling when an insufficient amount of natural tooth remains
  • a crown is needed to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that is already broken
  • a crown is needed to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped
  • a crown is needed to cover a dental implant
  • a crown is needed to prevent further cracking or breaking of a tooth that has undergone a root canal

Dr. Titensor's primary concern, like yours, is helping you keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright.

How is a Dental Crown Made?

Depending on your personal preference and circumstance, Dr. Titensor can recommend several durable materials, such as gold, ceramic, and porcelain for your crown. Most patients choose porcelain crowns because matching the natural color of your surrounding teeth is easier with the porcelain composite, creating a natural look, and in two easy steps, Titensor Dental can design and fit your crown: preparation and application.

Preparation for a Dental Crown

First, Dr. Titensor numbs your mouth and prepares your tooth by removing its outer portion. Then, after thorough examination, he carefully and expertly removes the decay from the tooth and creates a shape and size area in your tooth that will accommodate your dental crown. The next step is for Dr. Titensor to make an impression of your teeth and send it to a dental laboratory where they produce your dental crown – a custom-made fit. The process requires one to two weeks. We protect your teeth and gums with a temporary, acrylic resin crown during the production process.

Application of a Dental Crown

Our office will call you when your dental crown is ready. During this visit, Dr. Titensor removes the temporary crown. He fits and adjusts the permanent dental crown into place. At this point, he checks the dental crown for appearance, color match, bite discrepancies, and fit. When he is satisfied with the attributes of the crown, he cements the crown to your tooth.

Maintaining a Dental Crown

When you practice good dental care, you take the first step in maintaining your dental crown; however, to protect your new crown, you want to conscientiously brush and floss it at the base to maintain minimal bacterial growth that leads to gum disease. In addition, by scheduling your regular dental checkups with Titensor Dental, you receive our professional dental care whereby we can check your crown for any signs of abnormalities.
