What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown (or cap) is a custom-fit restoration designed to restore and protect a tooth that has been damaged by trauma or eroded by decay. Our state-of-the-art facility provides dental crowns to Elk Grove, CA patients to strengthen and protect the aesthetic area of a damaged tooth while also regenerating its function and cosmetic appearance. Dental crowns are custom-designed to blend seamlessly with your other teeth and are frequently used to fix fractured teeth, dental caries, teeth that are oddly shaped, or other types of structural damage. These restorations can also be fused into an appliance to form a bridge or connected to implants to treat teeth that have been lost. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Raju Dhariwal at Camden Dental Care to see if a customized dental crown is the best solution for restoring the quality of your smile.
What Do Dental Crown Treatments Involve?
Your dental crown treatment will likely require two appointments at our Elk Grove, CA office. During your initial visit, one of our highly trained dental experts will administer local anesthesia to your tooth and might incorporate sedation dentistry to elevate your comfort level if you so choose. Once the damaged area has been taken care of, an impression of the treated tooth will be completed and sent to a professional dental lab to make your custom restoration. We may place a temporary crown at this time to protect your tooth and allow you to comfortably talk and chew while your personalized crown is being made. When you return to Camden Dental Care for your follow-up (generally 1 – 2 weeks later), we will remove the provisional crown and fit your new restoration by either bonding it to the tooth or screwing it into an implant. Porcelain is typically selected as the material for the crown due to its subtle appearance, but your provider will discuss other options to help you decide which one is ideal for you.

Dental Crowns FAQs
How long do dental crowns last?
With the proper care and habits, porcelain and composite crowns may last up to 15 years. In fact, a well-cared-for dental crown may last even longer. If your crown becomes damaged, or if the tooth underneath begins to show signs of decay or infection, a replacement crown may be needed. During your future visits to Camden Dental Care, Dr. Dhariwal will check on the health of your dental crown to determine if further action might be necessary.
Do dental crowns require special care to maintain?
Without the proper care, a dental crown may become cracked or broken. Further, the tooth underneath could become diseased if plaque and tartar are allowed to build up. To preserve your crown and safeguard your dental health, you should brush twice a day and floss daily to remove food particles and prevent decay. You should also avoid sticky or hard foods, which could damage the crown or cause it to detach. Once your crown is placed, our team will discuss aftercare guidelines so you can enjoy better oral health for years to come.
What should I do if my dental crown becomes loose or falls off?
If your dental crown loosens or detaches, you should contact our Elk Grove, CA dental office as soon as you can to schedule an urgent treatment. While a crown can be replaced, the underlying tooth will be vulnerable to further damage and decay if the issue isn't addressed immediately. In the meantime, try to avoid chewing with the affected tooth, and take special care when brushing or flossing around that area.
