Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are one of the latest treatments used by doctors to replace broken teeth and improve their appearance. Dental crowns are called by several names such as veneers, caps, or crowns. They are just names, but their installation and effect are the same. In the following paragraphs, we will elaborate more on dental crowns, how they are installed, and the reasons for installing them.

Information about Crowns

Dental Crowns: Or what some call caps or crowns, are a cover or veneer that the doctor places over the tooth to improve its appearance or support it. It is a long-term treatment that lasts for a long time as long as the patient takes care of their teeth.

We are proud of our excellence as one of the best cosmetic and therapeutic dental clinics in Cairo, with a specialized medical team and modern techniques to achieve a radiant smile and healthy, beautiful teeth.

When do we resort to dental veneers?

The doctor uses veneers or crowns in some cases where no other procedure can be used, including:

  • If the patient has severe tooth decay and does not treat it, which increases its spread to reach the roots of the teeth, making it difficult for the filling to fill the gap, so the doctor uses the crown to support it.
  • In case the teeth are exposed to a collision that causes them to break and crack.
  • If the patient needs to install fixed or removable bridges, the crown or veneer will be used to support it.
  • If the patient undergoes a dental implant procedure, they will need to install a veneer to support the artificial tooth and cover the implants.
  • In case of discoloration and stains on the teeth, it can be used to conceal them.
  • In case of minor misalignment or asymmetry of the teeth.
  • It can be used in case of a tooth or old tooth residue.

Steps of Dental Crowns

There are several steps that the doctor follows to install the crown, but its installation is the last step after the procedures that precede it, such as installing bridges or dental implants. During this paragraph, we will discuss the steps of the crown:

  • After completing the procedure preceding the installation of the crown, the doctor prepares to prepare your teeth by taking measurements of the tooth to be installed to match its size and shape, and sending it to the lab.
  • In case there is tooth decay or root residue, the patient must remove it before installation.
  • The doctor uses a temporary crown or restoration to cover and protect the tooth from bacteria until the permanent one is prepared.
  • After it is prepared in the lab, the tooth is thoroughly cleaned after removing the temporary one and replacing it with the permanent crown after ensuring that it fits the tooth.

Types of Dental Crowns

There are several types of crowns that differ according to the type of material used in them, and during this paragraph we will present them in detail:

  • Metal Crowns: It consists of a group of rust-resistant metals such as gold, nickel, chromium, titanium, and silver, which are characterized by hardness, durability, resistance to corrosion, and withstanding the pressure resulting from chewing or grinding. It is also characterized by lasting for a long time, but despite its advantages, it is not preferred by everyone because it causes an unappealing appearance for the teeth.
  • Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal Crowns: It is made of a mixture of porcelain material, which resembles the color of natural teeth, and various metals such as silver and chromium. However, many doctors do not prefer it because it corrodes over time and a black line appears under the porcelain, and it may cause allergic reactions due to the mixed metals.
  • Resin Crowns: It is made of resin material that is easy to shape, has a color similar to natural teeth, is resistant to corrosion, and does not cause any allergic reactions as it is a non-metallic material, in addition to its suitable cost for many people.
  • Ceramic Crowns: It is made of ceramic or porcelain material without adding any other material. It is preferred for use on the front teeth because it resembles natural teeth, and in addition, the pressure will be less because it is easy to break.

What type of dental crown should I choose?

There are many different types of crowns that vary in the type of material, so when choosing a specific type, several factors must be considered, including:

  • The material used in the manufacture of the crown, and its impact on the patient’s body (i.e., avoiding materials that cause allergic reactions).
  • Paying attention to the colors of the crowns.
  • The durability and strength of the crown.
  • The cost of the crown, whether it is suitable or not.
  • The crown’s susceptibility to discoloration or corrosion.

The doctor may suggest to you the latest type of crown, which is E-MAX; as it is made of a glass-based lithium disilicate material, which adds an aesthetic look to the teeth as it resembles natural teeth. With the modern E-MAX technique, we ensure you a pain-free and complication-free experience at The Dental Center

What should I consider when getting dental crowns?

As we mentioned earlier, there are many different types that can be chosen according to certain criteria. Therefore, when installing the crown, you should not choose a doctor with lower costs without knowing the suitable options for you. You can consult more than one doctor to find out the best crown and make sure that the results are what you want, because choosing the cheapest option may result in poor quality results, wasting a lot of money.

Advantages of Getting Dental Crowns

Crowns have many advantages that make them the optimal choice in treating many dental problems, so we will present the most important advantages of crowns:

  • It improves the shape and appearance of the teeth, as there are some types that have a color similar to natural teeth.
  • It is a good option when used on the front teeth.
  • It conceals all stains and discoloration on the surface of the teeth.
  • It supports and stabilizes artificial teeth in the dental implant procedure.
  • It helps fill gaps between teeth.
  • It helps realign and straighten crooked teeth.
  • It protects teeth and treats problems such as cracks and fractures.
  • It protects fillings from dislodging or slipping by securing them.

Complications of Getting Dental Crowns

Despite the many advantages of crowns, like any procedure, there may be some complications that we will address in the following points:

  • After installing the crown, the teeth may experience sensitivity, especially when consuming cold or hot foods.
  • It may cause some allergic reactions as a result of the body’s rejection of the metals used in the manufacture of some types of crowns.
  • It may cause some gum diseases such as gingivitis, which can cause some discomfort and pain.
  • A black line may appear in some types of crowns, causing an unappealing appearance for the teeth, especially if they are in the front.
  • The crown may be of an unsuitable size for the tooth, causing severe pain if it is elevated.

What can break the crown?

There are many situations and causes that can lead to a broken crown, including the following:

  • Consuming foods that are characterized by hardness and toughness, such as nuts or ice.
  • Damage to the crown may occur due to the patient’s neglect of care.
  • Consuming drinks that help corrode it, as well as smoking.
  • Sustaining a severe blow while practicing sports.
  • Using teeth as a tool to open things like bottle caps and bags.
  • Sustaining severe blows to the face, such as falling on it.
  • Cost of Dental Crowns

Can a dental crown be removed?

Yes; although it is difficult, with the proper choice of doctor and caution when removing it, it may not cause any harm to the tooth. It will be easy if the crown is temporary, but if it is permanent, it will be strongly attached, so it will require some sterile medical tools to cut it.

Reason for tooth blackening under the veneer

Some doctors believe that there are two reasons for the blackening under the veneer:

  • It is due to venous congestion in the gum as a result of the long edges of the artificial crown, which causes severe pressure on it. To solve this problem, the doctor must be visited to treat the gum and install the veneer better.
  • There is a case where the veneer installed was made of porcelain materials and metals such as nickel and chromium, which cause blackening over time.
