Dental crowns allow your i-Implant Dentistry dentist to protect your teeth that have suffered extensive damage. Our goal is to protect and preserve the structure of your natural existing teeth as much as possible. Dental crowns allow us to do this by strengthening a weakened or broken tooth while also restoring your smile and ability to eat and chew. 

What Is the Dental Crown Process?

At i-Implant Dentistry in Roseville, we begin the process by making impressions of your smile and choosing the perfect tooth shade that matches your existing teeth. The goal is to create a prosthetic tooth that retains function and blends in with your smile. No one will be able to tell that you have a dental crown because it looks so natural. 

Your dentist will collaborate with you to design a beautiful and realistic dental crown that exceeds your expectations. 

The Dental Crown Life Span

With proper care and maintenance, your dental crown can last for many years. Depending on the wear and tear the dental crown absorbs, your crown can last between five and 15 years—making them a long-term dental investment that restores beauty and function to your smile.

Sartell patients can prolong their investment by practicing good oral hygiene like daily brushing and flossing, maintaining regular dental cleanings, avoiding grinding or clench teeth, chewing ice, chewing fingernails, and using teeth as a tool to open packages.

Dental Crowns are Reliable! 

Dental crowns in Sartell are reliable and durable dental prosthetics that your dentist uses to restore and protect a weakened tooth. There are many reasons why patients may need a dental crown, but the advantages are the same. Some of the most common benefits of dental crowns include:

  • Support a decayed tooth
  • Protect against further enamel erosion
  • Stabilize a tooth after a root canal
  • Protect a chipped, fractured, or cracked tooth from further damage
  • The visible portion of a dental implant
  • Improves the appearance of a severely stained tooth
  • Improves the shape, size, and alignment of teeth
  • Cover a cavity that is too large for a filling
  • Attach a dental bridge

Dental Crowns Are a Great Investment in 56377

Dental crowns are a popular long-term dental procedure because they can last 10-15 years with proper care and maintenance. For patients who are interested in investing in their future oral healthcare. Once your dentist has fabricated your dental crown, they can ensure that it blends in with your existing smile. The process for dental crowns is pain-free and straightforward; during your initial consultation, your dentist will make an impression of your mouth to create a precise mold of the tooth. This impression will be used to custom fabricate a dental crown to enhance your smile and improve the function of your bite.

When Do You Need a Dental Crown?

While there may be some cases where the condition of the tooth after a root canal does not require a dental crown, more often than not, we recommend one to protect and stabilize your tooth.

A dental crown is a tooth cap that protects your tooth from further damage and infection. We recommend a root canal when severe decay or infection has penetrated your tooth to the inner portion. When the dental pulp and root become inflamed, it is necessary to remove the infected portion to eliminate pain and reduce the risk of tooth loss. Because root canals require removing some of your tooth, they become weakened and susceptible to repeat infection. 

If the tooth has sustained a lot of damage, then a dental crown is perfect for preserving the remaining portion of your tooth. 

Killing Tooth Infections

At i-Implant Dentistry in Sartell, we work hard to retain your natural tooth as much as we can. Root canals preserve your tooth and kill any decay or infection. By capping your tooth with a dental crown, we seal the tooth from outside bacteria, and even the pressure of chewing and grinding that can crack a weak tooth. Our goal is to preserve your teeth as much as possible before tooth extractions are necessary. 

Please contact our Roseville dental office if you have any questions or would like more information about root canals and dental crowns.
