What are crowns?

You might be wondering exactly what a crown is and what it does. It’s actually pretty simple. Crowns are covers that your dentist at Huntington Family Dental will place onto your tooth.

Do I need a crown?

  • You might have a tooth that is cracked, weakened, or worn down.
  • You recently were treated for a root canal.

How are they placed?

It usually takes two visits to Huntington Family Dental to complete the procedure for putting a crown in place.

First, the dentist will prep your tooth by taking off the outer portion. This is so the crown will fit. At the same time, the dentist will remove decay. He might add to the core of the tooth if he decides additional support is needed. Then he’ll make a mold so that way an exact model can be created.

Generally, you’ll receive a temporary crown for the time you’re waiting for the crown to be ready. The dentist or lab tech will use your tooth model to craft your custom crown.

Once the crown is ready for use, the dentist will put it in your mouth and adjust it as necessary. When he is happy with its positioning, he will cement it in place.
