Crowns Q & A

What are dental crowns?

Over time, many people experience damage to their teeth, either through normal wear and tear, injury, or disease. This damage can negatively affect the health, functionality, and appearance of your teeth. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged tooth in order to restore function and appearance, helping you feel confident flashing your smile and making it easier to do simple tasks like eating or speaking.

Do dental crowns look like real teeth?

Most dentistry looks like dentistry. The goal of the team at Pūr Dentistry is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. They install new crowns and replace existing dental crowns with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. The team uses high-quality porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” to make your smile appear just like new, making it so that others won’t even be able to tell the difference between an original tooth and the new crown.

How long do dental crowns last?

If you are having dental work done, you want it to last a long time. The team at Pūr Dentistry take great care to only provide high-quality crown installations and replacements, giving you peace of mind that the work will last you long into the future. It is not uncommon for crowns installed by Pūr Dentistry to last for 20-30 years, which is about as close to permanent as you can get for dental work.

What can I expect from the procedure?

Initially, you meet with Dr. Azar and your situation is reviewed thoroughly before a plan of care is carefully developed. Then, the team at Pūr Dentistry removes any decay from the tooth, shapes the tooth, and then fits it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal. On a subsequent visit, the team removes the temporary crown and then fits and adjusts the final crown. Finally, Dr. Azar cements the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth. Throughout the process, Dr. Azar is available to address any questions or concerns that you may have.
