When do you need a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is placed when a tooth breaks or has suffered a crack. A crown also helps restore a tooth when a cavity or existing defective filling is too large to have the tooth refilled, leaving the tooth vulnerable to fracture. At our office, we will help communicate the condition of your tooth and explain why a tooth will need a crown. The following photos are actual case photos for educational purposes:

This shows a molar that should have had a crown. As you can see, the surrounding enamel is unsupported due to the large size of the filling. A buildup and porcelain crown was a treatment plan for this molar. The patient reported that the filling was only 3 years old.

Note the decay and the crack discovered after the amalgam filling was removed. Decay was removed and a composite core buildup was bonded into place. A temporary crown was made to prevent the tooth from splitting into two halves. We allowed time to see if the symptoms would go away. The tooth eventually needed a root canal when the symptoms did not go away while the tooth had a temporary crown. A permanent crown was later made after the root canal was completed. The tooth was saved and the patient is able to chew on the tooth again.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Dental Crowns in Scottsdale?

Dental crowns are excellent for protecting damaged teeth. This restorative procedure can aid in the preservation of your teeth’s health. Porcelain crowns can be fully customized to fit your smile and provide long-term results. During your consultation in our Scottsdale office, Dr. Kaocharoen can determine if you are a candidate for dental crowns.

What Should I Expect During my Porcelain Crown Treatment?

Traditionally, dental crown placement required two separate visits. During the first visit, impressions of your tooth were taken for an off-site dental lab that fabricated the crown. Your new crown required a second visit to be fitted. With technological advancements, we can digitally fabricate the crown in the office on the same day using the CEREC® CAD/CAM 3D system without compromising its strength, appearance, quality of work, or material integrity. Dr. Kaocharoen will carefully fit and place your porcelain crown in the same visit after it has been created.

What Should I Expect After my Dental Crown Treatment?

You may experience some sensitivity and discomfort following the placement of dental crowns. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help with this. Dentist Scottsdale, Dr. Tony Kaocharoen can perform the entire dental crown procedure while numbing the area with a local anesthetic. Dental crowns restore proper oral health and function, allowing you to chew and speak freely. When you smile, your crown will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.
