Dental Crown FAQs
What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap our El Paso dentist places over a problematic tooth. In general, singular decayed, misshapen, or broken teeth are perfect candidates for dental crowns. The dental crown restores the size, shape, and strength of the problematic tooth. When applied, the crown covers the entire visible portion of the tooth.
What Can I Expect from the Application Process?
During the application process, our dentist will first remove the decayed/damaged portion of the tooth. If necessary, the cavity may be filled. Once that’s complete, our dentist will prepare the remains of the tooth—this will be the space where the crown will go. A temporary crown will be placed over the prepared tooth until the fabrication of the permanent crown is complete. Once the permanent crown is ready, our El Paso dentist will affix it over the natural tooth with dental cement.
Do Dental Crowns Look Realistic?
Permanent crowns are manufactured to look exactly like your other natural teeth, from the shape to the shade of the crown itself. Once it’s placed and it’s fully adhered to, your smile will look good as new.
What Are Dental Crowns Made Of?
While dental crowns are made from several different materials, they are designed to match the appearance of the natural tooth perfectly. Most people won’t notice a difference. Often, crowns are made out of metal, porcelain, ceramic, or resin. If a patient has a cracked, painful tooth, a crown will not only make the tooth look better but will also help resolve the problem.
Will I Have to Change My Eating Habits After My Dental Crown is Placed?
Temporary crowns are not as resilient as their permanent counterparts, so our dentist will guide you on how to avoid damaging the temporary crown. Once your permanent crown is ready, you can rest easy as permanent crowns are highly resilient to damage. They are not as strong as natural teeth, however, so you may have to change your eating habits to avoid damaging the crown. We don’t mean avoiding eating certain foods outright, but it’s recommended you chew away from the dental crown. For example, if you’re planning on eating steak or a pretzel and you have a crown over a tooth that’s on the right side of your mouth, make sure to chew on the left side.
What Are Dental Crowns Used For?
Dentists may recommend crowns as a solution for a wide range of oral health concerns. Often, a crown is used to protect a weak tooth from decay, restore a broken tooth, or cover a tooth with a large filling. A large filling can cause a tooth to be weak or prone to cracking. If a tooth with a large filling shows signs of cracking or fracturing, your dentist may decide to replace it with a crown. We may also apply crowns to hold a dental bridge in place, cover a dental implant, or make a cosmetic modification.

Bridges — A Permanent Solution to Tooth Loss or Extraction
In some cases, you might lose a tooth or need to have a tooth extracted because of significant damage or infection. Dentists often apply a dental bridge to “bridge” a gap between teeth. A bridge consists of a crown for the two adjacent teeth and a false tooth in between.
Bridges serve several purposes. They can be used to keep teeth from drifting out of position or distribute a person’s bite force properly. They also restore the appearance of one’s smile and make it more comfortable to speak and chew.
Losing a tooth doesn’t have to be the end of a perfect smile or your ability to chew. There’s a permanent option if you lose your teeth because of irreversible issues that can restore both beauty and function.
Porcelain Veneers — Improve Your Smile, Boost Your Confidence!
Porcelain veneers are thin coverings that can be added to teeth to improve their appearance. While only cosmetic, veneers are great because they can give you more confidence in your smile, especially if you struggle with yellow or damaged teeth. We work with porcelain veneers, aiming to make them look natural and the same color as your real teeth, so they look as natural as possible. This way, your smile can be more beautiful than ever before.
