Crowns Q & A

Why do I need a crown? 

A dental crown, or cap, brings your tooth back to its optimal state. Your dentist may recommend a dental crown if you have a lot of dental decay and a filling just won’t be a good fit. Dentists also provide crowns to:

  • Cover a tooth that was treated with a root canal
  • Attach a bridge to areas that are missing teeth
  • Protect a tooth that’s at risk of fracturing
  • Correct a tooth that has cracks or chips
  • Treat a discolored or misshapen tooth 

Dental crowns are also necessary to cover implants and fully replace a missing tooth.

What are the benefits of a crown?

Greene Street Dental specializes in new metal-free crowns that entirely eliminate the old unsightly black line you may have noticed next to your gum line in older crowns. 

A metal-free framework beneath the porcelain leaves you with excellent aesthetic qualities to make the final restoration entirely natural-looking. No one will even know which tooth has a crown. 

Crowns are also beneficial because they:

  • Prevent teeth shifting
  • Help you maintain your natural bite
  • Help you have more confidence when you smile

Modern crowns from Greene Street Dental are entirely long-lasting, too. While it’s common for crowns to last up to a decade, with good oral hygiene and regular cleanings, your crown can certainly last a lifetime. 

How long does it take to get a crown?

Greene Street Dental uses highly advanced digital imaging to create digital molds of your bite. Your dentist uses this technology to create a computer-generated image of what your new crown should look like. 

After sending your images to the dental lab for crown fabrication, it generally takes about a couple of weeks to get your crown back. Don’t worry, your dentist fabricates a temporary crown to wear while you wait.

Once your permanent crown is ready, the team schedules you for a follow-up visit. This appointment, which takes just a few minutes, allows your dentist to bond your new crown in place and make any necessary adjustments on the spot.
