Dental crowns are a type of restoration in which the damaged tooth is completely encapsulated by a porcelain fabrication. The crown is bonded to the tooth for a secure fit in order to allow for normal activity in the mouth.
The Beavers Dentistry team can help you if you are in need of a dental crown. We are experienced in providing dental crowns and have been helping our Cary clients with this service for years.
What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are a method of restoring a tooth to its former glory by putting a cap over the original tooth or an implant. We start the process by forming a dental impression of your teeth to make sure that there is a tight bond between the crown and the outside of the tooth. We then cast the crown that fits on top of your tooth. In the next step we prepare the tooth and bond the crown to the tooth.

Reasons To Get A Dental Crown
Dental crowns are used when a tooth is broken or needs added protection for normal activities. Without a porcelain crown it will be incredibly difficult to eat and live a normal life because of the constant pain and discomfort caused by the damaged tooth. Along with the pain it can lead to further tooth decay and spread of bacteria if a dental crown isn’t utilized. Dental crowns can be used in a multitude of different occasions such as:
- To fix a broken or fractured tooth.
- To protect a tooth from further decay.
- To repair broken or damaged fillings.
- Add a level of protection to tooth fillings.
- To cosmetically improve the appearance of a tooth.
What Are Dental Crowns Made Of?
The dental crowns that we make at Beavers Dentistry are made from porcelain. This material is durable, long-lasting, and can match the shade of the rest of the teeth in your mouth. Porcelain crowns are an effective way to provide the strength of a tooth, combined with the look and feel of a tooth. It is possible to receive dental crowns that are made out of a variety of different materials such as porcelain, ceramic, silver, gold, or other materials. Typically our dental professionals with recommend either porcelain or ceramic depending on the patient as these have been known to provide the best possible result.
How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
Dental crowns should last a minimum of 15 years. Crowns are made to be durable and long-lasting but will require proper treatment like the rest of your teeth. Well maintained crowns can last 25 or more years. The timespan of dental crowns can vary from patient to patient based on how well they are applied, the quality of the dental routine of the patient, and other factors. The dental professionals at Beavers Dentistry will be able to provide you with a clear analysis of your crowns and any signs of deterioration.
