At Every Smile Dentistry, we offer a variety of dental fillings for our dental crowns, including ceramic, porcelain, and metal. Each filling type has its own benefits and drawbacks, and the choice of filling material depends on several factors, such as the location of the tooth, the patient’s preferences, and the overall condition of the tooth. 

For example, ceramic and porcelain fillings are popular choices for their natural-looking appearance and durability, while metal fillings may be recommended for their strength and longevity. Our dental team will work with you to determine the best type of filling for your needs and preferences.

Who Needs Crowns

Dental crowns are recommended for a variety of dental conditions, such as severely decayed or damaged teeth, discolored teeth, or teeth that have undergone root canal treatment. 

Crowns can help to restore the shape, size, and function of the tooth, as well as protect it from further damage. If you are experiencing any of these dental problems, dental crowns may be the solution you’ve been looking for.


Preparation for dental crowns involves several steps:

  1. Consultation with the dentist: Schedule a consultation with your dentist to discuss the details of the procedure, the type of crown that will be used, and any concerns you may have.
  2. Address any existing dental issues: Before the crown procedure, it’s important to address any existing dental issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, or a root canal. Your dentist will advise you on the necessary steps to address these issues.
  3. Oral hygiene: Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial for the success of the procedure. Make sure to brush and floss regularly, and use an antibacterial mouthwash.
  4. Diet modifications: Avoid eating hard, crunchy, or sticky foods that could damage or dislodge the temporary crown before the permanent one is placed. Stick to a soft diet until the procedure is complete.


Dental crowns are a common dental restoration that can be used to improve the function and appearance of damaged or decayed teeth. Here are the general steps involved in getting dental crowns:

  1. Impression of the prepared tooth: The dentist will take an impression of the prepared tooth and the surrounding teeth using a putty-like material. This impression will be used to create a mold of your tooth that will be sent to a dental laboratory where the crown will be fabricated.
  2. Temporary crown placement: To protect the prepared tooth while the permanent crown is being fabricated, the dentist will place a temporary crown. This temporary crown will be made of acrylic and will be held in place with temporary cement.
  3. Fabrication of the permanent crown: The dental laboratory will fabricate the permanent crown using the impression that was taken of your tooth. The crown will be custom-made to fit your tooth precisely and to match the color of your natural teeth.
  4. Placement of the permanent crown: Once the permanent crown is ready, you will return to the dentist for its placement. The dentist will remove the temporary crown and clean the prepared tooth. The permanent crown will be checked for fit and color match before it is permanently cemented in place.
  5. Post-operative care: After the crown is placed, you may experience some sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. You should avoid hard, sticky, or chewy foods for a few days while the crown settles in. You should also maintain good oral hygiene practices, including brushing twice a day and flossing daily, to ensure the longevity of the crown.

The process of getting dental crowns typically takes two to three visits to the dentist. The exact timeline will depend on the specific circumstances of your case.


Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. There are several benefits of dental crowns, including:

  1. Protection: Dental crowns can provide protection to a weakened or damaged tooth by covering it entirely, preventing further damage or decay.
  2. Aesthetics: Dental crowns can be made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile.
  3. Durability: Dental crowns are made of materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys that are highly durable and can last for many years with proper care.
  4. Comfort: Dental crowns can improve your bite and overall dental function, allowing you to chew and speak more comfortably.
  5. Easy maintenance: Dental crowns require minimal maintenance and can be cared for like your natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups.
  6. Versatility: Dental crowns can be used to address a variety of dental issues, such as cracked or broken teeth, teeth that are misshapen or discolored, and to cover dental implants or bridges.

Overall, dental crowns are a highly effective and versatile solution for restoring damaged or decayed teeth, improving dental function, and enhancing the aesthetics of your smile.


After getting dental crowns, it’s important to take good care of your teeth and gums to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the crown. This includes proper brushing and flossing techniques, as well as avoiding hard or sticky foods that may damage the crown. 

Our dental team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your dental crown and what to expect after the procedure. Regular check-ups with a dentist are also important to monitor the health of the crown and ensure that any issues are addressed promptly.

Frequently Asked Questions

After getting a dental crown, there are a few rules you should follow to ensure the crown sets and heals properly. These include:

  • Avoiding hard, sticky, or chewy foods for the first few days after the procedure.
  • Taking over-the-counter pain relievers as recommended by your dentist to manage any discomfort.
  • Keeping the area around the crown clean by brushing and flossing regularly.
  • Avoiding alcohol and tobacco products, as they can slow down the healing process.

It typically takes a dental crown a few days to a few weeks to settle down completely. During this time, you may experience sensitivity or discomfort around the tooth, particularly when biting or chewing. If you experience severe pain or discomfort that lasts longer than a few days, you should contact your dentist.

After getting a dental crown, you should avoid certain foods and activities to prevent damaging the crown or slowing down the healing process. These include:

  • Hard, chewy, or sticky foods that could dislodge or damage the crown.
  • Chewing on hard objects like ice or pens.
  • Using tobacco products, as they can slow down healing and increase the risk of infection.
  • Drinking alcohol, as it can interfere with pain medication and slow down healing.

You should wait at least an hour after a crown is cemented before eating to allow the cement to set properly. After that, you can start with soft foods and gradually introduce harder or chewier foods as the crown settles and you become more comfortable with it.

Yes, if a dental crown gets damaged, it can often be repaired by a dentist. The type of repair needed will depend on the extent of the damage, but options may include replacing the crown, using dental bonding to repair chips or cracks, or using a dental filling to repair small areas of damage.

Dental crowns can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. On average, dental crowns can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years, but some can last even longer. The lifespan of a dental crown can depend on factors such as the material it’s made of, the amount of wear and tear it’s exposed to, and how well it’s cared for.

Dental crowns cannot be whitened using traditional teeth whitening methods, as the materials used to make crowns do not respond to the bleaching agents in these treatments. However, if you have a discolored dental crown, your dentist may be able to replace it with a new crown that matches the color of your natural teeth more closely.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that’s placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, strength, and function. A dental bridge, on the other hand, is a dental restoration that’s used to replace one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) that are supported by crowns that are placed over the teeth adjacent to the gap.

The staff is sooo friendly. I have a big fear when it comes to dentists, but my dentist calmed me down so well and talked me through what she was going to do and what she was doing while busy. I had an infected tooth that she extracted. I felt no pain and it was over within seconds. I will definitely go back.
