Ceramic Crown

November 11, 2022
A tooth crown is a custom-made dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth or to protect a weak or fractured tooth. It is typically made of metal, ceramic, or plastic, and is bonded to the tooth by a dental technician.

It usually takes one office visit. However, if your tooth is extremely decayed or if there isn’t enough tooth remaining to support the restoration, your dentist or dental specialist may place a “post” in the root of the tooth to provide support for the crown. This procedure requires two visits.

No. Take care of your ceramic crown as you would your natural teeth. Brush twice daily, floss once daily, and see your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.

With proper home care and regular dental visits, your ceramic crown can last a lifetime.

Ceramic crowns are more expensive than other types of crowns, but they offer the best esthetics and are the best match to the color of your natural teeth.
