Crowns Q & A

What is a crown?

A crown is an artificial tooth cap that your dentist permanently bonds to your smile. They’re made from an impression of your smile, so they feel and function just like your natural tooth, giving you a comfortable restoration that improves your overall oral health.

When you get a crown at Daren W. Evans DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, the team pays close attention to the tiniest of details in order to make your crown uniquely yours.

They also use the best local lab for the fabrication of your crowns and veneers, ensuring your restored smile is of the highest quality.

How is a crown different from a veneer?

Your dentist uses crowns and veneers to give patients new smiles that are as beautiful as they are healthy. The difference between crowns and veneers is that a crown covers up all of your tooth above the gumline while veneers only cover up the front-facing portion of your tooth.

While veneers can sometimes serve medical purposes, they’re typically more of a cosmetic procedure, whereas crowns serve a wide range of both medical and cosmetic functions.

Why would I need a crown?

Your dentist might suggest you get a crown in order to:

  • Restore a tooth that’s suffered from severe decay
  • Protect a damaged tooth from further damage
  • Replace a misshapen, discolored, or unsightly tooth

Crowns are also typically a part of a root canal treatment. Your dentist fits you with a crown after your root canal in order to restore the strength, structure, and functionality of your tooth after your procedure.

When used in conjunction with a dental implant, a crown can also work to replace a tooth that’s entirely missing from your smile.

What are crowns made from?

Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, like gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal. Daren W. Evans DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry also offers zirconium crowns for its patients.

Zirconium crowns are incredibly strong, durable, and able to withstand a great deal of biting force, but they’re also very visually similar to your natural tooth enamel, giving you a restorative solution that’s as good for the appearance of your smile as it is for your oral health.
