About Dental Crowns

Crowns are very strong, durable covers that fit snugly over the entire tooth to hide cosmetic issues like broken teeth, deep discoloration or large, dark fillings while also providing strength to the tooth structure. They're often used on teeth that have had root canals to cover up the discoloration that usually follows a root canal and to help provide additional strength to the tooth, which may have been weakened by the removal of the interior pulp. They're also used in bridge procedures to provide strength and protection to the teeth used to support a bridge. During the consultation, general and cosmetic dentists at Martin Dentistry will discuss the patient’s crown options and develop a treatment plan based on their needs. As part of Martin Dentistry's commitment to patient safety, our Indianapolis practice is metal and mercury-free.

What to Expect

A dental crown usually takes 2 appointments to complete. During the first appointment, one of our Dentists at Martin Dentistry will prepare the tooth for the crown, take impressions of the tooth for the permanent crown, and place a temporary crown over the tooth to protect it. The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory where a customized crown(s) will be created for the patient. Once the crowns arrive back at our practice, the patient can schedule an appointment to have their permanent crown(s) fitted. 

Treatment Aftercare

Patients do not usually have any pain after a crown is placed, but some patients experience discomfort or tooth sensitivity. Depending on the material, crowns can last from 7 – 40 years. Patients can extend the life of their crown by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting Martin Dentistry for regular exams and cleanings. If oral health is neglected, the tooth under the crown may develop a cavity or infection that will require more extensive treatment, like a root canal.
