Crowns Q & A

What is a crown?

A crown is a prosthetic tooth that’s placed over an existing root structure, such as a dental implant or your natural tooth root. By replacing a missing tooth or restoring a damaged one, a crown reinforces the strength of your bite, augments your overall oral health, and enhances the appearance of your smile.

What are crowns made of?

Crowns are made from a variety of materials, such as:

  • Ceramic
  • Zirconium
  • Porcelain
  • Resin

Dr. Cohan will recommend a particular material based on the size and location of the tooth to be replaced.

Porcelain, ceramic, and zirconium crowns can be made to match the color of your teeth, making them an excellent choice for your visible teeth.

Why do I need a crown?

By literally filling in the holes in your smile or replacing an unsightly tooth, a crown is an excellent way to aesthetically enhance the appearance of your smile. But there are also a number of non-cosmetic reasons that you might want a crown, including:

  • To protect a weakened tooth from further damage
  • To restore function to a tooth that’s been badly worn or broken
  • To replace a tooth that’s lost significant substance due to decay or a large filling

A crown can also fix a lot of problems that are caused by missing teeth, such as difficulty in eating or speaking. And by reinforcing the structure of your smile, a crown can prevent the rest of your natural teeth from shifting or rotating into the space left by a missing tooth.

How do I get a crown?

Dr. Cohan places the crown, ensures that the margins are perfect, and then bonds it your root structure with a dental sealant. You’ll be able to properly chew, speak, and smile with confidence as soon as you leave the office!
