What is a dental crown?

A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a type of dental restoration that completely covers a damaged or decayed tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. A dental crown is custom-made to fit over an existing tooth and can be made from a variety of materials. Dental crowns are typically used to protect and strengthen a tooth that has been damaged by decay, injury, or a large filling. They are also used to support a dental bridge, cover a dental implant, or improve the appearance of a discolored or misshapen tooth.

Proper care is essential to ensure dental crowns last as long as possible. Here are a few tips on how to care for your dental crowns after getting one at our Brookhaven dentist offices:

  • Brush and floss regularly: It is important to maintain a good oral hygiene routine, including brushing your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, and flossing once a day. This will help remove plaque and food particles that can accumulate around the crown and increase the risk of decay or gum disease.
  • Avoid grinding your teeth: Grinding your teeth, also known as bruxism, can cause damage to the dental crown and to the tooth underneath, leading to a need for replacement. If you have a habit of grinding your teeth, talk to your dentist about getting a night guard made custom in our office in Brookhaven.
  • Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption: Nicotine and alcohol can discolor dental crowns, affecting the natural appearance of your smile.
