Consider Crowns When

The Benefits

  • Extends the life of your tooth.

  • Restores your tooth’s strength and function.
  • Minimum lifespan of 5 years.

A message from Mirage Dental Clinic.

Dental crowns offer a solution for restoring teeth that are worn, damaged, or decayed, utilizing materials that cater to diverse needs and preferences. The ideal crown for you aligns with your budget, aesthetic desires, and oral health objectives. While crowns are built to last, they aren't invulnerable and will require replacement eventually. To maximize the lifespan of your crown, maintain diligent oral hygiene and adhere to regular dental check-ups.

Steps and care

Every phase detailed, ensuring your crown’s lasting brilliance and health.

Before having a crown
Maintain oral hygiene and share any concerns or allergies with us.
Between sessions
With temporary crowns, eat gently and practice diligent oral care to safeguard your tooth and the restoration.
After having a crown
Post-placement, resume daily activities instantly. Brief sensitivity and gum tenderness are normal, should subside quickly. For comfort, consider over-the-counter pain relief.
Crown care
Maintain your crown by brushing twice daily, flossing, and using antibacterial mouthwash. Consider a mouthguard if you grind your teeth, and keep up with regular dental visits and professional cleaning.
Things to Avoid
With both temporary and permanent crowns, it's best to avoid certain foods to prevent damage or displacement. Skip ice cubes, hard nuts, popcorn kernels, and sticky treats like taffy and caramels.

Frequently asked.

Dental crowns offer multiple advantages, including:

  • Restoring Integrity: Revive worn, broken, or decayed teeth to their former strength.
  • Protection: Guard against erosion and further wear.
  • Functionality: Improve chewing, making eating more comfortable.
  • Aesthetics: Enhance the appearance of your smile for a confidence boost.
  • Durability: With proper care, crowns can last between five to fifteen years, providing a long-term solution for dental health.

While beneficial, dental crowns come with some considerations:

  • Enamel Removal: The procedure involves removing some natural tooth enamel.
  • Sensitivity: Teeth may be sensitive post-placement, typically subsiding after a few weeks.
  • Durability: Crowns can break or fracture with time.
  • Fit and Decay: Improperly fitted crowns can harbor bacteria, risking decay.
  • Allergic Reactions: Though rare, some individuals might react to crown materials.
  • Cost: The investment in crowns can be significant, depending on the material and procedure.

Dental crowns typically last between five to fifteen years. Signs of wear, damage, or deterioration indicate the need for a crown replacement.

Dental crowns themselves shouldn’t cause pain. Post-placement sensitivity is normal but should not result in significant discomfort. If you experience pain during the procedure, informing your dentist allows for additional anesthesia to ensure comfort.

Choosing between a dental crown and a veneer depends on your unique dental needs. A crown envelops the entire tooth, while a veneer is a slim porcelain layer that adheres to the tooth's front side.

  • Veneers: Ideal for cosmetic improvements, they address visual imperfections like chips, cracks, and discoloration.
  • Crowns: Serve a restorative purpose, focusing on tooth health but also offer aesthetic enhancement.

Your decision hinges on whether your priority is cosmetic enhancement or the restoration and health of your teeth.

No, there's no distinction between a dental cap and a crown; they're the same restoration. "Cap" is simply another term used for crowns, referring to how they cover the tooth.
