Crowns Q & A


What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are coverings that enclose the entire surface of your tooth to restore it. Crowns protect teeth from decay and damage and improve the appearance of your smile. Smile Dental offers top-of-the-line, all-porcelain (Zirconia and e.max®) crowns that perfectly blend with your surrounding natural teeth.

What are the benefits of crowns?

Your Smile Dental provider could recommend a crown if you have decayed or damaged teeth. Crowns improve the appearance of teeth that are:

  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Decaying
  • Discolored
  • Too small
  • Misshapen

Crowns look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth. They can support dental bridges or attach to dental implants to replace missing permanent teeth and give you the beautiful smile you long for.

Are dental crowns right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for dental crowns, your Smile Dental specialist reviews your oral health history, reviews the results of your dental X-rays, and examines your teeth and gums. They discuss your desired outcome to find a cosmetic dental solution that best matches your needs.

What happens during crown placement?

When you arrive at Smile Dental for crown placement, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. Your provider will numb the treatment area as needed to eliminate the risk of pain and discomfort. They remove tooth decay and might reshape or sand down part of your natural tooth to make room for the crown.

Your dentist digitally scans your tooth and sends the information to a dental lab. After your custom-made crown is ready, you return to Smile Dental. Your specialist ensures that it fits correctly and permanently bonds it to your natural tooth.

What should I expect after getting a crown?

There’s no downtime after crown placement, so you can resume your daily routine immediately. Care for your new crown by brushing your teeth after meals, flossing every day, and not chewing on hard objects, including ice. See the Smile Dental team every six months for routine cleanings and dental exams.
