Get the royal treatment with the highest-quality dental crowns to restore the beauty and health of your smile

Crowns are one of the most versatile dental services. They really “do it all,” from strengthening a broken or weakened tooth to preserving a badly damaged tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted. They even enhance the appearance of a very misshapen or otherwise cosmetically “imperfect” tooth. In doing so, crowns can restore your smile’s balanced, uniform, and aesthetically pleasing appearance while also ensuring your long-term health, comfort, and function.

When in the hands of Dr. Tejumade St. Matthew-Daniel of All About Beautiful Smiles in Orlando, Florida, the crown procedure also results in the most natural-looking and strongest restored tooth. Dr. St. Matthew-Daniel has distinguished herself from other dentists, near and far, with an array of advanced certifications and training in areas such as aesthetic, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. 

What to expect 

You may be a good candidate for a crown if your tooth has a large cavity. These teeth cannot be properly restored with a simple filling. They need a little more structural support in the form of a crown. Additionally, if you have a damaged or old filling, Dr. St. Matthew-Daniel may recommend replacing the filling with a crown to prevent future threats to the tooth. Crowns are also ideal for holding together pieces of a broken tooth and strengthening teeth that are fragile due to wear and tear, disease, and other forms of trauma. 

When prepared and blended to match the color and appearance of the surrounding teeth, crowns also cover up a poorly sized or irregularly shaped tooth. They are vital to “saving” a tooth with severe decay. The crown restores a tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy. Lastly, crowns also play a vital role in replacing teeth; they are used to support dental bridges and to restore dental implants. 

Of course, our dentist will need to confirm that crowns are an appropriate treatment for your troublesome tooth. If she recommends moving forward with this type of restoration, any damaged parts of the tooth will be removed. The tooth is also reshaped. So the crown will fit on top of the tooth properly. 

Information about the tooth is collected. We use that info to make the crown. Crowns may be fabricated from a variety of different materials. Dr. St. Matthew-Daniel can advise on the best material for your situation. Generally, though, ceramics such as porcelain are lauded for their natural appearance (they look like natural enamel), as well as their stain resistance and strength. Here again, factors such as the location and function of the tooth influence the specific recommendations we make to rebuild your tooth.

Once the crown is made, it is secured to the “prepared” tooth structure. Simply care for the restored tooth like you would its “unaltered” neighbors.

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are a way to protect a tooth. It’s like wearing a cap on a bad hair day. Dental crowns protect a tooth that is vulnerable or likely to get damaged.

What are the alternatives to dental crowns?

The alternatives to dental crowns might be in situations where you’re deciding if an anterior tooth should get a crown or a partial crown, which is also known as a veneer. However, it’s case by case, and I encourage you to come into the office so we can decide together.

What different materials are used in dental crowns? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

The different materials used in dental crowns vary from full gold to stainless steel, and then ultimately to a tooth-colored porcelain crown. Each has its strengths and weaknesses. Gold is the strongest material and can be used in posterior areas. Stainless steel crowns are for kids who still have their baby teeth. More natural aesthetic crowns look just like the color of your teeth, and they are the porcelain crowns. We have different kinds of porcelain. When we need strength, we use zirconia.

Is a dental crown necessary after a root canal?

Yes, a dental crown is necessary after a root canal to strengthen the tooth and prevent it from breaking.

Could you explain the dental crown procedure?

The dental crown procedure starts with numbing the tooth, then preparing the tooth so there’s enough room for the porcelain or gold material. You leave that day with a temporary crown, and in a couple of weeks, I bring you back, and I deliver the final crown, which is cemented on and doesn’t come off.

Does a dental crown placement hurt?

No, a dental crown placement doesn’t hurt. You might get numbed for comfort, but it’s a very comfortable procedure.

Do crowns look like normal teeth?

Absolutely, crowns look like normal teeth. The goal is to ensure that it’s not just functional, but it’s highly aesthetic.

Can you get cavities on crown teeth?

Yes, you can get cavities on crown teeth. It’s essential to floss and brush your teeth after every meal.

How long can I expect a dental crown to last?

A dental crown can last a lifetime. However, its longevity depends on your oral hygiene and maintenance.
