Dental crowns and caps are prosthetic devices that cover a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. They are custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth.

Dental crowns or caps are typically recommended to protect weak or damaged teeth, restore teeth with large fillings, support dental bridges, cover dental implants, or improve the appearance of misshapen or discolored teeth.

The lifespan of a dental crown or cap depends on various factors, including oral hygiene practices, tooth grinding habits, and the material used. On average, they can last between 10 and 15 years, but with proper care, they can last even longer.

The placement of a dental crown or cap is typically a painless procedure. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area, ensuring that you feel little to no discomfort during the process.

The process usually requires two dental visits. During the first visit, your tooth is prepared, and impressions are taken. A temporary crown or cap is placed. In the second visit, the temporary restoration is replaced with the permanent crown or cap, which is carefully fitted and bonded.

Yes, dental crowns or caps can be customized to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend with your smile.

Dental crowns or caps require regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing twice a day, flossing, and visiting your dentist for routine check-ups. Avoid biting down on hard objects or using your teeth to open packages to prevent damage.

Yes, dental crowns or caps can be replaced if necessary. If your crown becomes loose, damaged, or falls off, it’s important to contact your dentist to evaluate the situation and determine the best course of action.
