What is it?
A dental crown is a small cap that is placed over a tooth, is a non-invasive procedure and may be needed for a variety of reasons.
A dental crown is both a cosmetic and restorative treatment. In addition to covering signs of tooth decay or tooth damage, you can protect your teeth. When the structure of the tooth begins to weaken from decay, it requires protection. The tooth weakens, increasing the risk of infection and the spread of gum disease.
Crowns are also recommended following a root canal on a tooth, because the tooth is more fragile and needs protection. You may be a candidate for a crown if you’re missing a tooth, and the dentist needs to put in a dental bridge or a tooth implant.
If you are concerned with the condition of your smile, dental crowns may provide the perfect solution.
The dental crown is made to resemble the existing teeth. They will match the color, shape, and texture of the surrounding teeth. The result is that your dental crown will look completely natural. It will go unnoticed without careful inspection. They are always custom-made to not only match the look of your existing teeth but to fit your mouth perfectly.

How long would it last?
Generally, the crown should be good for about 15 years. It also depends on how you treat your dental crowns. For example, if you grind your teeth while you sleep, we recommended that you use a splint to protect the crown. (With us, this is included when doing a smile design treatment).
