Dental crowns

Ceramic crowns help to replace the missing part of the tooth or to strengthen the tooth with treated canals. Dental crowns are distinguished by their material – metal-ceramic crowns, full ceramic crowns (zircon or Emax). These two types of dental crowns differ in their aesthetic properties and strength.

In the case of tooth decay, trauma or some endodontic procedures (root canal treatment), when a great part of the hard tooth tissue is lost, the crown is a suitable and possible solution. Treatment takes place in several stages. A temporary crown has to be attached to the tooth during the production of a metal-ceramic or full-ceramic crown.

When is the crown placed?

A dental crown - covers the tooth, protects it, strengthens it and improves its appearance. When the time is right, the dentist may recommend a dental crown for the patient:

Caries over 50-60% of the tooth
Defects and changes in the appearance of the tooth - loss of color, loss of shape. Crowns correct this problem and make the smile more attractive and whiter.
Destruction of enamel. Every tooth has a period when the enamel is almost completely worn away, and fillings give only a short-term effect.
If the nerves are removed from the tooth, a so-called "dead tooth" is formed, which is prone to rapid decay; a crown can save the situation.
Some diseases of the teeth and gums.
The doctor will examine the damaged tooth in detail, including its root system, and give a prognosis for the future. After checking the entire tooth, he or she will determine the appropriate treatment procedure. In the dental office, we will work with the patient to match the color of the ceramic to the neighboring teeth or your wishes. Under local anesthesia we will grind the tooth to the desired shape and make impressions or pictures of both jaws. We always make a temporary crown (or veneer, inlay, onlay) on site, so that the patient does not leave with a shaved tooth.
Dental crowns and partial crowns are used when a tooth can no longer be restored by filling alone. Also as part of a fixed bridge to replace a missing tooth. In the case of an endodontically treated tooth, they reduce the risk of destruction of the entire tooth or its crown and modify the tooth from a functional and aesthetic point of view.

How to take care of crowns

Hygiene procedures for artificial teeth are exactly the same as for your own teeth. First of all, brushing in the morning and evening, which can be supplemented with a special tooth rinse.

Another tool for dental hygiene is a dental irrigator.
Plaque and tartar are regularly removed at the dental clinic.
Dentures are checked by the dentist at the dental clinic at least twice a year to prevent damage to them.

Proper oral hygiene is especially important after the procedure. It is very necessary to ensure this to prevent tooth decay or gum inflammation. The better you care for your teeth, the longer they will serve you.

It depends on the complexity of work. Usually it takes from 1 to 7 days.

Minor damage to the tooth crown can only be polished and temporarily repaired. Cracked and seriously damaged dental crowns have to be removed and new crowns shall be made.

You may get a total of 2 years of dental warranty for dental crowns. However, we know for sure that even after 10–15 years, most of the crowns remain in good condition. If your oral hygiene is good, than there will be no problems. Regular check-ups play an important role.

Is this procedure painful? What if the body doesn’t take a dental crown?

This procedure is painless, as the other procedures in our clinic, because we use high-quality anesthesia.
