    In a nutshell, a dental crown is basically a cap that gets placed over an existing tooth that has been damaged somehow.
    This cap can be made of:
    • porcelain
    • ceramic
    • some type of metal
    • composite material
    Dental crowns can be placed over front teeth as well as rear teeth, with rear teeth generally being molars that are seldom visible. When the front teeth are operated on, the material used will be color-matched to your existing teeth, so the dental crowns won’t be visible.

    The specific type of dental crown you choose will generally depend on the kind of durability you’re looking for, the strength of the material, and the cost of the material.

    People who consider having dental crowns installed will generally have one of several conditions which need to be addressed.
    • One good example is when you have a large cavity that is so big that a filling would be ineffective.
    • You might also want to have a dental crown installed over a tooth that has become severely worn down.
    • In some cases, cracked teeth are crowned to add strength and protect against further damage.
    • Teeth that have become weakened in place will also benefit by having dental crowns installed.
    It happens fairly often that crowns are installed over teeth after a root canal has been performed. This is because, following a root canal procedure, a tooth is much more fragile and generally in need of greater protection.
    Other situations indicating dental crowns are when you might be missing a tooth, or if your dentist is installing a tooth implant or dental bridge.


    When you come to visit Dr. Maitri Patel at her Ocoee, FL dental clinic, we will:
    • examine your teeth to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for dental crowns
    • discuss with you what your objectives are with having a dental crown installed
    If you are eligible and desirous of proceeding with the dental crown process, we can develop a plan for your treatment.
    If any of your teeth need to be strengthened or protected, dental crowns may be the best way to deliver that assistance. Installing dental crowns is not a difficult process, so you won’t have to endure any kind of discomfort, or any long, drawn-out procedures.
    In a short period of time, we can have your dental crowns in place, and you will enjoy better oral health with your teeth protected against further damage.


    If you think you might want a dental crown installed, you should contact us at Dr. Maitri Patel’s Ocoee, FL dental clinic  so we can discuss your situation.
    After we’ve examined your teeth, we’ll discuss your eligibility for dental crowns, and if you decide to go ahead with the procedure, we’ll develop a treatment plan with you.
    Crowns can be a great way to restore the original look and functionality of your teeth before they became cracked, chipped, or discolored.
    Installing a crown will bring back that original great smile you had, and make you feel much better about yourself.


    Q: What is a dental crown?

    A: A dental crown is a kind of cap which is placed over an existing tooth, so as to improve its appearance or to add strength and functionality.

    Q: When would a dental crown be needed?

    A: Dental crowns are usually needed in situations where a weak tooth needs protection against breaking, a tooth filling needs to be protected, to cover a dental implant, to cover a misshapen tooth, or to restore a tooth that has been severely worn down.

    Q: What kinds of dental crowns are there?

    A: There are a great many types of dental crowns, and the one you choose will depend on the situation, your personal preference, and the cost of the crown. There are crowns made of metal, resin, porcelain, or ceramic.

    Q: What kind of care is necessary for a dental crown?

    A: You should avoid eating sticky or really chewy foods, and you should also avoid very hard foods. Other than that, normal brushing or flossing will help to keep your dental crown in good shape.

    Q: How long do dental crowns last?

    A: This will depend on how good you are about maintaining oral hygiene. In general, however, you can count on having your dental crown last between 5 and 15 years.

    Q: Are there any problems that can develop with my dental crown?

    A: There are several potential problems that might come up. Your crown could become loose or it could become chipped, and you’d have to see Dr. Maitri Patel about that. Some people experience sensitivity with crowns, or they become allergic to the material, in which case you would again have to consult with Dr. Patel.
