What is a dental crown ?
A dental crown is a custom-made, tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth, either to protect it or to enhance it.
Dental crowns are used to restore the shape, size and strength of a tooth, as well as to improve its overall appearance.
What are the types of dental crowns ?
There are many different types of dental crowns, which can be adapted to everyone’s needs and budget.
Permanent dental crowns can be made from materials such as:
Metal crowns are the most durable there is, they rarely chip or break and cause minimal wear to other teeth.
However, due to their distinctive metallic color, these crowns are best suited for molars.
Metal-fused porcelain crowns are a more popular choice because they can match the color of your natural tooth.
There is a risk of the porcelain chipping or breaking, and they also cause more wear on the opposing teeth than all-metal crowns.
Resin crowns are a more affordable option than other types of crowns, but they wear out over time and are more likely to fracture than crowns made of other materials.
Ceramic or porcelain crowns are not as strong as metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, but they offer the best natural color match.
They are, therefore, the ideal choice for front teeth.
How to prepare for dental crowns installation in Tunisia ?
Prior to installing your dental crown, you will first need to visit your doctor for a preoperative meeting, during which you will be able to discuss the operation with them and be able to explain your goals from the procedure.
Your dentist will also examine your teeth; this examination is necessary to ensure that your teeth can support a crown.
You will need to quit smoking as it can severely affect your teeth and mouth.
How to install dental crowns in place ?
In many cases, the doctor can start filing them to prepare the crowns during your first appointment.
Alternatively, if the affected tooth is badly damaged or broken, your dentist may need to fill it in to make it large enough to properly accommodate the crown.
After filing the tooth into the proper shape, your dentist can take an impression of the tooth, as well as those around it.
The impression is normally sent to a dental laboratory, so that the permanent crown can be made.
At the end of the this first procedure, your tooth may have a temporary crown that protects it until the final crown is ready to be placed permanently on the treated tooth.
When the permanent crown is ready, you can have your second visit, during which, your dentist will be able to remove the temporary crown and position and fix the new permanent crown on the treated tooth using a special adhesive.
Your dental crown may take some time to get used to, but over time a permanent dental crown should look, function and feel like a normal tooth.
What problems and side effects can arise with a dental crown ?
There is always the chance of potential risks and complications with every cosmetic or medical procedure and dental crowns are no different.
Your doctor will explain how rare these risks are and how to best avoid them.
There are several issues you may experience with your crown over time, including:
Discomfort or sensitivity.
A newly crowned tooth may be sensitive immediately after the procedure, when the anesthesia begins to wear off.
All-porcelain crowns can sometimes chip.
Small chips can be repaired, and the crown can stay in your mouth.
The dental crown may need to be replaced if the chipping is severe or if there are multiple chips.
Sometimes the cement holding the crown together can come loose from under the crown. This not only allows the crown to become loose, but also allows bacteria to infiltrate and cause cavities on the remaining tooth.
The crown falls out.
A dental crown can actually fall out, when this happens, it’s usually due to a poor fit or a lack of cement.
If this happens to you, contact your dentist’s office immediately.
The metals used to make dental crowns are often a mixture of several metals.
You may have an allergic reaction to the metal or porcelain used in the dental crown, however, this is extremely rare.
Dark line on the crown tooth next to the gum line.
You may see a dark line next to the gum line of your crown tooth.
This is normal, especially if you have a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown.
This dark line is simply the crown metal showing through.
