What to Expect When Receiving a Dental Crown

When receiving a dental crown from Dr. Holinbeck or another member of our team, you will first schedule a consultation. It is during this visit that we will examine your oral cavity and determine if the tooth in question needs this type of restorative care. If so, we will begin by administering local anesthesia to numb the tooth and the area around it. Once you are completely comfortable, we will gently clean and remove any decayed or damaged areas of the tooth structure, being mindful to avoid harming any healthy areas of the tooth.

We will then fill the tooth to create a tight seal to prevent future reinfection or damage. Once this solution hardens, we will prep the tooth and take impressions that will be used to create the customized dental crown. In our dental office, we are pleased to provide a quicker option for receiving a dental crown. With the help of CEREC technology, you can receive your desired restoration the same day you arrive for your procedure. This allows for greater convenience and exceptionally happy patients.

It is also possible, should you prefer, to wait and receive your customized crown within a few weeks. This will allow your tooth to heal before having your finalized restoration put into place.

Dental Crown FAQs

Being informed about any kind of dental treatment is important. Although Dr. Holinbeck and our team at Bionica Dental Wellness might recommend a dental crown for treatment, you’ll likely have many questions about the process and how to ensure its longevity after it is put into place. Below, you will find some frequently asked questions about dental crowns that you can easily review. Should you have more, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for assistance.

Are dental crowns permanent?

No, dental crowns are not permanent. These custom restorations are designed to offer stability and strength; however, over time, normal daily wear and tear will require that they be replaced after 10-15 years. Of course, there are things you can do to prolong their lifespan, including practicing good oral hygiene at home and seeing our team every six months for regular checkups and teeth cleanings. Should you notice that your crown feels loose or is damaged in any way, it’s best to seek a replacement sooner rather than later to avoid potential harm to the underlying tooth and your remaining smile.

Do dental crowns get cavities?

One of the benefits of dental crowns is that they cannot decay. You do not need to worry about your custom restoration developing a cavity; however, the tooth underneath can if you do not take care of your smile. Although there is a strong bonding agent that holds the crown in place, poor oral hygiene can lead to bacteria entering the small crevices around the crown and attacking the underlying tooth structure. If decay does form, it is imperative that you receive dental care so that the problem does not worsen and require more complex treatment (i.e., tooth extraction).

Are dental crowns safe for an MRI?

The dental crowns used at Bionica Dental Wellness are unlikely to cause any issues when receiving an MRI. Only when patients have metal fillings or crowns might there be a problem. Many of the materials used today do not pose issues when coming into contact with medical equipment, but those individuals with porcelain fused to metal crowns might see that their crown loosens and/or the images appear blurry when finished with the MRI.

The good news is that Dr. Holinbeck only uses tooth-colored materials to craft custom crowns, so they are safe should you require an MRI or any other imaging service.

What happens if you wait too long to get a dental crown?

Waiting too long to receive a dental crown can mean worsening oral health problems. When decay spreads beyond the enamel and dentine layers, it can reach the pulp, resulting in inflammation and infection. If proper treatment is not administered, the tooth will need to be removed and replaced with a dental bridge, partial denture, or dental implant.

Dental crowns are a less invasive way to repair decayed and damaged teeth, as opposed to root canals or tooth extractions. Not to mention, the maintenance of a dental crown is much cheaper than having an artificial tooth put in place of one that must be extracted.
