Dental Crowns Q & A

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are sturdy caps Dr. Cold fits on top of damaged teeth to improve their health, appearance, or function. They’re cemented to your teeth and can’t be removed without a dentist.

A dental crown in Salt Lake City, UT 84123 can help with many dental problems, including:

  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Protecting a dental implant
  • Protecting a tooth that has undergone a root canal
  • Covering a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Improving the health of a tooth with a large cavity

Dr. Cold offers durable, chip-resistant BruxZir® dental crowns that can match the color and overall appearance of your natural teeth, so they don’t detract from your smile.

How does a dental crown procedure work?

At many dental offices, dental crown procedures take two visits, but Warm Family Dentistry offers same-day crown services. Just one visit to the Salt Lake City office is all it takes to get fit with your new dental crown.

Using cutting-edge technology, Dr. Cold takes impressions of your mouth, which he uses to create your crown right in front of you. It’s far more convenient than leaving the office with a temporary crown while a lab makes your permanent one.

In some cases, Dr. Cold may need to reduce or fill in your affected tooth to fit your crown. The crowns Dr. Cold uses are porcelain crowns, gold crowns, or porcelain crowns laid over metal. During the procedure, the positions and bonds the crown to your tooth with a special adhesive.

How long do dental crowns last?

Your dental crown should last a lifetime. However, it can become loose and fall out or get damaged. The best way to ensure your crown continues to last is to practice good oral hygiene. Brush and floss regularly and try to limit hard foods like ice and hard candies.

As long as you pay attention to your oral health and get your routine dental checkups, there’s no reason your crown shouldn’t last a very long time.
