Do I need a dental crown?
You could be a good candidate for a dental crown if you have broken or chipped teeth, dental damage usually caused by an injury, or have a weakened tooth after a procedure, such as a root canal. A dental crown is possibly the most cost-effective way to rehabilitate a damaged tooth without having to extract it.
If you have a broken or damaged tooth and are considering getting a dental crown, come in for a consultation at one of our Cosmetic Dental Point office in Sydney (Kellyville and Castle Hill). Our experienced dentists can help determine what type of dental crown fits your needs and what you can expect.
Getting a dental crown may take multiple visits to your dentist for a fitting and to place the actual crown. The amount of time it takes also depends on the condition of your teeth and gums. If your tooth is severely damaged, it may also be necessary to have a root canal or other dental procedure before preparing the tooth to fit the crown.
FAQs about dental crown services in Sydney (Kellyville and Castle Hill)
How long do dental crowns last?
A dental crown will typically last for about 15 years before needing to be replaced. However, a well-maintained dental crown can potentially last for decades with the proper care. By practicing good oral hygiene and avoiding potential risks, such as chewing hard foods, you can help to extend the lifespan of your crown.
Is it painful to have a crown put on your tooth?
When it comes to installing a dental crown, the tooth being capped and the surrounding area are completed numbed, so the patient shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. After the local anesthetic wears off, there may be some sensitivity in and around the tooth, but this will subside quickly.
What can you not eat with a dental crown?
Foods you should avoid with a dental crown include anything excessively sticky, chewy, hard, or tough, as they can potentially damage the crown or cause it to become loose. Some examples include nuts, seeds, granola, taffy, pretzels, and ice cubes. You should also take precautions with heavily stained foods or drinks. Although a crown is resistant to discoloration, your other teeth may become stained, resulting in uneven coloring.
