Crowns Q & A

Why do I need a dental crown?

A dental crown is designed to cover and protect your tooth and the root, so you won’t have to risk losing your natural tooth. Your dentist may recommend getting a dental crown if you have any of the following issues:

  • Severe tooth discoloration
  • Cracks, fractures, or breaks
  • An old filling that’s too big to replace 
  • Large pockets of decay that require a root canal

Dental crowns are also commonly used to cover implants. The implant replaces the tooth’s root below your gumline, while the artificial crown replaces the upper part of your tooth. 

What is the process of getting a crown?

After Dr. Boehm prepares your treated tooth and removes any decay, or performs a root canal (if needed), he takes digital scans or impressions of your tooth. This image is then used to fabricate your crown from a restorative material — like ceramic — right in the office.

Once your crown is ready -- often in less than an hour -- Dr. Boehm can bond your new crown in place. The entire process of getting a crown at the office of Dana R. Boehm DDS can be completed in a single office visit. No need to schedule multiple visits or worry about missing work. 

How long do crowns last?

Dental crowns don’t decay and can certainly last a lifetime. The issue is that your natural tooth beneath the crown can decay, which can cause your crown to fall out. This is why good oral hygiene is so important: You want your crown to last as long as possible!

Not only does Dr. Boehm spend time teaching you about proper oral hygiene habits, but he also has professional-grade home products available for purchase, including the Philips Sonicare® toothbrush. 

To further help your crown last for years to come, it’s important to continue scheduling routine dental exams and cleanings at the office of Dana R. Boehm DDS every six months.
