Get Your Damaged Tooth Restored with a Dental Crown

If you have a tooth that is cracked, decayed, or otherwise damaged, getting a dental crown can help restore its structure and function. Learn what crowns are and whether they may be right for you.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. The custom-fabricated crown fully encases the tooth's visible part down to the gum line once cemented in place. Typical situations where crowns are needed include:

  • Severely decayed or fractured teeth
  • Following a root canal procedure
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To cover a dental implant

Crowns reinforce and protect damaged teeth that cannot be adequately restored with fillings alone.

Types of Crowns:

Crowns can be made of:

  • Metal alloys like gold or base metal alloys
  • Porcelain fused to metal
  • All-ceramic materials like porcelain or zirconia

What is the treatment process like?

Getting a crown involves:

Tooth Impression

  • Exam to assess the damaged tooth and the need for a crown
  • Filing the tooth down to accommodate the crown
  • Taking impressions to make the custom crown. This would take up to ten days.

Cementing

  • Cementing the fabricated crown onto the prepared tooth
  • Checkups to ensure a good fit. This takes upto two days to complete

If getting Dental Crowns abroad, the treatment usually takes 2 round trips or one extended round trip of 12 days for both phases.

Who is a candidate?

Ideal candidates for Dental crowns are those who have a damaged tooth:

  • Is in danger of fracturing or falling apart
  • Needs reinforcement after a root canal
  • Will need a crown to support a bridge
  • Will need a crown to hold an implant in place
