7 Questions Patients Ask About Crowns

No matter how disciplined you are regarding your daily brushing habit, your teeth can be subjected to an internal weakness for several reasons. In some cases, the tooth may even reach the verge of breaking completely. If this sounds like you, a dental restorative treatment called dental crowns might be perfect for you.

A dental crown is a sturdy, tooth-like cap used to restore a nearly broken, weak, or discolored tooth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance. As a person, you might have various questions about the dental crowns treatment before even considering this option, and it is completely normal. Our dentists have listed the top seven questions with answers about dental crowns that our patients ask the most for your convenience.

Below is the List of Common Questions About Dental Crowns

1. Are Dental Crowns Painful?

The most asked question is if dental crowns are painful. The answer is NO! Though the dentists for dental crowns do their best to make the patients feel comfortable, some people may experience slight discomfort. But this feeling of discomfort will also be temporary.

2. How Long Will My Dental Crowns Last?

Well-placed dental crowns can last a lifetime if proper care and after-treatment maintenance tips are followed. However, we have seen cases wherein patients returned with broken caps for various reasons. If you brush twice a day, do regular flossing, avoid chewing too hard food items, and grind your capped teeth, you can expect your crowns to last long.

3. How Many Sessions are Needed for Dental Crowns?

Generally, two sessions are needed. In one session, the dentist evaluates your mouth condition and takes the measurement for the cap, and the second session is for secure placement of the tailor-made cap.

4. What are Dental Crowns Made of?

Dental crowns are made using different materials. Porcelain, ceramic, and gold alloys are some of the materials. The dentist inspects the patient’s mouth condition to choose the ideal material for their crowns. It ensures that the patients face no problems with dental crowns.

5. Is Dental Crowns Treatment Necessary for Me?

If the dental crowns treatment is the only dental restoration option available to prevent tooth extraction, then this treatment is a must.

6. Can Crown Teeth Get Cavity in the Future?

If the patient does not exercise the prescribed care, a cavity can occur underneath the crown. Though ceramic crowns are great at protecting your teeth from further decay, the chances of the crowned teeth getting cavity cannot be entirely overruled.

7. Are There are Any Risks Associated with Dental Crowns Treatment?

No, there are no dental risks associated with this treatment. In fact, dental crowns in India are the least invasive dental restoration options.
