Questions We Are Frequently Asked About Same Day Crowns

What is the difference between a Crown and a Cap?

In dentistry, the terms “crown” and “cap” essentially refer to the same type of dental restoration, despite the different terminology. Both are used to cover and protect a damaged tooth, serving to restore its strength, shape, and appearance.

Whether it’s called a crown or a cap, this restoration is employed for various reasons, such as reinforcing a weakened tooth, repairing a broken tooth, covering a tooth with a large filling, or enhancing the cosmetic appearance of a tooth.

The materials used for crowns and caps are identical, including options like porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these.

How Long Will My Crown Last?

The lifespan of a dental crown varies, but with proper care, they can last between 5 to 15 years, and sometimes even longer. The longevity depends on the material used, the location of the crown in your mouth, and your oral hygiene practices. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene, and avoiding habits like teeth grinding can extend the life of your crown.

Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are recommended for various reasons: to protect a weak tooth from breaking, restore a broken or worn-down tooth, cover and support a tooth with a large filling, hold a dental bridge in place, cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth, or cover a dental implant. They are also used for cosmetic enhancements.

Are Same Day Crowns Painful?

Getting a dental crown is generally not painful. The procedure involves numbing the tooth and surrounding area with local anesthesia. You might feel some pressure or mild discomfort, but no sharp pain. After the procedure, some sensitivity or discomfort is normal but is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers.

What Happens During the First Crown Appointment?

The first appointment for a dental crown involves preparing the tooth, which may include reshaping the tooth surface to fit the crown. An impression of your tooth is taken to create a custom crown that fits perfectly. In some cases, a temporary crown is placed while your permanent crown is being made.

How Long Does the Crown Procedure Take?

The procedure to place a crown typically takes about one to two hours. This includes preparing the tooth, taking impressions, and placing a temporary crown if needed. The second visit, to place the permanent crown, usually takes less time.

What Types of Crowns Are Available?

There are several types of crowns, including porcelain or ceramic, which are popular for their natural appearance; gold and metal alloys, known for their strength and durability; and porcelain fused to metal, which offers both strength and a natural look. The choice depends on the location of the tooth, aesthetic considerations, and function.

How Do I Care for My Dental Crown?

Care for a dental crown as you would your natural teeth. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and regular dental check-ups. Avoid chewing hard foods or ice to prevent damage to the crown. If you grind your teeth, consider wearing a night guard to protect the crown.

Can a Crowned Tooth Get a Cavity?

Yes, a tooth with a crown can still get a cavity. The edge where the crown meets the tooth is susceptible to decay. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits are important to prevent cavities in crowned teeth.

Can Crowns Be Whitened?

No, dental crowns cannot be whitened. They are made from materials that do not respond to whitening agents. It’s important to consider the color of your natural teeth when selecting the shade of your crown, as it will remain the same color over time.

What If My Crown Comes Off?

If your crown comes off, it’s important to contact your dentist immediately. In the meantime, keep the crown safe so it can be reattached. Avoid using the tooth to prevent further damage. Your dentist will either reattach the existing crown or create a new one if necessary.

How Does a Same Day Crown Compare to a Veneer?

A dental crown covers the entire tooth, providing strength and protection, while a veneer is a thin shell that only covers the front surface of the tooth, mainly for cosmetic purposes. Crowns are used for more extensive restoration, while veneers are suitable for aesthetic improvements like correcting the color, shape, or alignment of teeth.
