Dental Crowns at Cayon Dental

Broken or decay teeth can cause pain, trouble to bite and talking, and self-consciousness. A dental crown can be set over the tooth to re-establish structure and function, enabling you to bite, talk, and smile with confidence. A dental crown is a “cap” put over a tooth. When crown established into the area, crowns completely encase the whole visible part of a tooth that lies at or over the gum line. It re-establishes the tooth’s shape and size, quality, and appearance.

How does the dental crown help?

  • Repair and Protect Your Tooth – A dental crown is put over the influenced tooth after treatment for injury or decay, shielding it from further harm and regularly preventing the requirement for extraction.
  • A Trusted, Durable Solution – Dental crowns are made of solid materials that are intended to withstand typical chewing powers. With appropriate care, they can last as long as 10 years or more.
  • Natural-Looking Results – Dental crowns are produced using superior- quality materials that can be matched to the shade of your neighbouring teeth. They additionally show the light-reflecting properties of enamel.

A dental crown may also be expected to:

  • Protect a fragile tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together pieces of a broken tooth.
  • Reestablish a cracked tooth or a seriously destroyed tooth.
  • Spread and support a tooth with a huge filling and very little tooth left.
  • Hold a dental bridge set up.
  • Spread deformed or seriously stained teeth.
  • Cover a dental implant.
  • Cover a tooth treated with a root canal.


Normally a dental crown needs two visits. At the first visit, the tooth to get the crown is inspected and prepared. X-rays are taken of the tooth and bone around it. In the case of decay, there is a danger of contamination or damage to the tooth’s pulp; a root canal treatment may be done first. To prepare room for the crown, the tooth to get it is scraped down over the top and sides. The amount of tooth detail relies upon the sort of crown chosen. Every single metal crown is thinner and doesn’t require as much tooth structure removed contrasted and all-porcelain or porcelain-melded to-metal crowns. In case of an excessive amount of tooth is absent, because of harm or decay, a filling material is utilized to “develop” enough tooth structure for the crown to cover.

Subsequent to reshaping the tooth, a glue or putty is utilized to make a duplicate (likewise called impression) of the tooth that will get the crown. Impressions of the teeth above and underneath the tooth to get the dental crown are also made. This is done to ensure that the crown won’t influence your bite.

The impressions are sent to a dental lab.The laboratory makes the crowns and more often than returns them to the dental clinic in 2 to 3 weeks. During this first office visit, your dentist will make a transitory crown to cover and secure the prepared tooth while the long-lasting crown is being made.

At the second visit, the lasting crown is put. To begin with, the temporary crown is removed and the fit and shade of the permanent crown are analyzed. In the case of all is well, a local anesthetic is used to numb the tooth and the new crown is forever sealed set up.
