What is a Tooth Crown?

Dental crowns, also referred to as dental caps, are placed over patient’s existing tooth and it covers the whole outer surface. Dental crowns are restorations which are used to protect cracked, damaged or broken down teeth. Dental crowns strengthen the existing tooth so that functionality of the tooth can be preserved.

After the patient has a consultation with dentist and discusses the treatment options, the dentist prepares the tooth for crowning. The first stage is to clean the tooth, remove decays and reshape the tooth by using special dental drill.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. Once the tooth is prepared, an impression of teeth will be taken using special “dental putty”. The impression is then sent to a dental laboratory, new crown is fabricated. During lab stage, dentist fits patient with a temporary crown to cover and protect prepared tooth.

On second visit, dentist removes the temporary crown and roughens the outer surface of prepared tooth with a special etching acid to give the dental cement a good surface to bond to. Dentist then sits the crown over tooth to see if it fits with patient’s smile correctly and is the right colour and shape. Once patient is happy with the restoration and how it looks, dentist cements the crown firmly into place.
