Our teeth, much like any other part of our bodies, can suffer from decay, fractures, discoloration, and cracks over time. Dental crowns, often referred to as "caps," are used to restore the health and aesthetics of damaged teeth. At Clinic EGO, our skilled and experienced dentists design crowns to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.

A variety of materials can be used, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, and resin. The choice of material often depends on the location of the tooth and the patient’s individual needs and preferences.

The process typically requires two visits. During the first visit, your teeth will be examined, prepared, and impressions taken to create a model for the crown. At the second visit, the fabricated crown is cemented onto the prepared tooth, and any necessary adjustments are made to ensure a proper fit and bite.

The procedure is generally comfortable as local anesthesia is administered to numb the area. Some patients may experience mild sensitivity or discomfort after the anesthesia wears off, but this usually subsides within a few days.

Once the anesthesia has worn off and you can feel your mouth normally, you can eat. However, it is advised to avoid eating hard or sticky foods that could dislodge the crown, especially before the cement has fully set.

Yes, dental crowns should be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth to maintain their longevity and the health of the surrounding gums.

Dental crowns can last for many years, often 15 or more. The lifespan of a crown can be influenced by the material used, the patient’s oral hygiene habits, and the wear and tear it is subjected to.

Regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups, are recommended to ensure the longevity of the crown. Avoiding hard or sticky foods can also help prevent damage.

While rare, some individuals may experience an allergic reaction to the metals used in certain types of crowns. Symptoms can include swelling, redness, itching, or numbness. If you experience these symptoms, contact your dentist promptly.

Some potential risks can include tooth sensitivity, crown fracture, gum problems, or in rare cases, damage to the underlying tooth. At Clinic EGO, our use of modern technology and skilled professionals ensures these risks are minimized.

Coverage for dental crowns varies depending on individual dental insurance plans and policies. For accurate information on coverage, it’s best to contact your insurance provider.
