Posted by BROADMOOR DENTAL on Jul 28 2021, 09:46 AM

If you have a damaged tooth and want to treat it, a dental crown can be the correct choice for you. 

Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that can help cover discolored, cracked, and worn-down teeth. They are also the final part of a dental implant procedure and essential in root canal procedures. 

At Broadmoor Dental in Colorado Springs, Colorado, our dentists specialize in restorative dentistry and know all about dental crowns. Read on to learn the 5 things you should know before planning to get the procedure done. 

What You Should Know About Dental Crowns

While you may have heard about dental crowns before, here are a few things about them you may not know: 

  • Crowns Are Customizable 

Dental crowns are custom-made for each patient according to the size, shape, and color of their existing teeth. At Broadmoor Dental, our dentists will also make sure the crowns have a perfect fit and are unnoticeable. 

Crowns don’t only restore your smile aesthetically, they also help restore the strength of damaged teeth. 

  • Crowns Are Made of Different Materials and Can Be Ready in a Day 

Crowns are made of various materials, including porcelain fused to metal, resin, metal, and zirconia. With the help of modern technology, customized dental crowns can be made in a day and temporary crowns can be fixed in a single dental visit. 

  • Getting Crowns Is Painless

The procedure of getting dental crowns is not painful. A local anesthetic helps numb the area of the treatment to ensure it does not cause discomfort. After the procedure, an adequately fit dental crown won't cause any pain either. 

  • Crowns Require Aftercare to Last

Dental crowns require proper aftercare to last. Our dentists recommend patients brush and floss every day and also avoid smoking and the intake of acidic and sugary drinks or actions that may cause the crown to break or chip like biting down on hard foods.  

  • Crowns Are Not Permanent 

Crowns are a durable solution but they do not last forever. If properly cared for, crowns can last for 10-30 years. 

Crowns provide durable protection for damaged teeth and also help enhance a patient’s appearance and boost their confidence. Our dentists at Broadmoor Dental provide expert dental services and can help you choose the right solution for your dental issues.
