Restoring Strength and Beauty to Your Smile

Dental crowns are a cornerstone of restorative dentistry and at CRE8 Smile Studio, we’re dedicated to restoring your teeth’s natural strength and beauty with high-quality crowns that blend seamlessly with your smile.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom-fitted restorations that cover the entire surface of a tooth. They are designed to protect, cover, and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve the problem. Crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and gold.

Why Might You Need a Dental Crown?

  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To cover misshapened or severely discolored teeth
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To make a cosmetic modification

The Dental Crown Procedure

  1. Consultation: Our dental team will evaluate your tooth and discuss the best material and approach for your crown.
  2. Preparation: The tooth will be reshaped to ensure a proper fit. An impression will be made of your tooth and sent to a lab where your crown will be custom-made.
  3. Fitting Your Permanent Crown: Once ready we will place your new crown, making any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.

Aftercare for Dental Crowns

With proper care, dental crowns can last many years. They require the same level of care as your natural teeth, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.

Are Dental Crowns Right for You?

Dental crowns are a versatile solution suitable for many people. If you have a damaged or decayed tooth, a crown can help to preserve your dental health and the aesthetics of your smile.

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, zirconia, metal (such as gold or metal alloys), and composite resin. The choice of material depends on the location of the tooth, the color of the surrounding teeth, the amount of natural tooth remaining, and the functional needs of the crown.

On average, dental crowns last between 5 to 15 years. The lifespan can vary based on the material used, the placement of the crown, and your oral hygiene practices. With proper care, some crowns can last even longer.

Dental crowns don’t require any special care beyond good oral hygiene practices. This includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.

Modern crowns are designed to match your natural teeth in shape and color. Porcelain and ceramic crowns can be particularly cosmetic, making them virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

The procedure to place a dental crown typically involves numbing the tooth and surrounding gums, so you shouldn’t feel any pain during the process. After the procedure, there may be some mild soreness or sensitivity, which usually subsides quickly.

Yes, the underlying tooth beneath a crown can still get cavities. Therefore, it’s important to continue practicing good oral hygiene and have regular dental check-ups.

If your crown comes off or is damaged, contact CRE8 Smile Studio immediately. It’s important to address this quickly to protect the underlying tooth and ensure the correct fit of a new or repaired crown.

Dental crowns cover the entire tooth, whereas veneers only cover the front surface of the tooth. Veneers are primarily used for cosmetic purposes, while crowns restore function and strength to a damaged tooth.
