How do I know my dental crown is damaged?
Dental crowns can become damaged or fall out due to injury, excessive grinding, or even develop cavities around its margins. A loose, painful or lost crown leaves your tooth unprotected and at risk of further damage. It can also cause changes with the way you bite which cause surrounding teeth to move, shift and affect the way you bite. That’s why emergency crown repair or replacement is crucial for restoring the tooth and your smile.

Emergency crowns are meant to be temporary. They last about 2 weeks to a few months. A permanent custom crown is still required after an emergency crown.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Crowns are needed when a tooth is cracked, worn down, or requires extensive repair.
Getting a crown installed is usually done over two visits totaling 2-3 hours. The first appointment prepares the tooth and takes impressions for the crown. The second cements the custom crown in place.
Your dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the area being worked on. With numbing, you should feel no pain during the procedure, just some pressure.
If you chip or crack a tooth badly and it requires immediate restoration, an emergency crown provides a temporary fix until a permanent crown can be made.
