Dental Crown FAQs in Worcester, MA

Are you interested in learning more about dental crowns? Read answers to common questions about tooth crowns here:

What are the benefits of dental crown treatment?

We use dental crowns made of porcelain ceramic, just like natural teeth. Unlike metal crowns, ceramic crowns also do not contain traces of mercury. We also color-match dental crowns because they are made of porcelain ceramic materials. In addition, porcelain crowns offer the same strength and durability to the smile as metal crowns.

Can I get a dental crown after a root canal?

Yes, we will sometimes recommend crowns to patients after their root canal treatment. Root canals remove a dental infection from within the tooth. We seal the tooth with a filling after the procedure. Patients especially worn or weakened teeth benefit from a dental crown. Crowns add strength and stability to create a more even smile.

How do I care for my dental crowns?

Right after your dental crown treatment, we will recommend that you stay away from hard, sticky, or crunchy foods. Sticking to a soft diet prevents damage to your crowns. For long-lasting results, remember to continue your at-home oral hygiene routine. Brush using a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Additionally, you can schedule biannual dental appointments in our office.

What are dental crowns made of?

Tooth crowns may be gold, porcelain ceramic, or a blend of porcelain and metal. We use porcelain ceramic for our dental crowns because they easily blend in with the smile. They also provide strength and durability to worn and weakened teeth.

Can I whiten my dental crowns?

No, tooth crowns do not react to whitening treatments. This is due to their material. Like other composite or porcelain treatments, our porcelain ceramic crowns are not affected by the whitening gel. However, if you have an old or discolored crown, we can provide you with a replacement crown that brightens the appearance of your smile.
