Benefits of Dental Crowns

Restored Oral Function

When a missing or damaged tooth is replaced or repaired with a dental crown, chewing and speaking become easier and much more comfortable.

Smile Restoration

Many of Dr. Krendl's patients come to our Littleton, CO, dental practice to restore smiles compromised by breaks, decay, deep stains, and more. Restoring a flawed tooth with a dental crown can give you a renewed, confident smile.

Strength and Protection

A crown placed on a damaged tooth can strengthen and protect healthy dental tissue, especially if Dr. Krendl performed a root canal procedure to remove infected pulp from the tooth's interior.  A dental crown can seal the tooth and prevent future infections in the root canal.

Replacement of Missing Teeth

Dr. Krendl may recommend a crown supported by a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. Our dentist is trained to perform all implant procedure steps, including surgery and crown attachment. Crowns supported by implants offer unparalleled stability.

Natural Appearance

Dr. Krendl can customize your dental crown by size, shape, and shade so it blends seamlessly with your existing teeth.

Long-Lasting Results

Regular brushing and flossing can help the dental crowns our dentist provides to his Littleton, CO, patients last up to 15 years. Other procedures like fillings or whitening treatments may cost less but do not last as nearly as long.

I have been coming to Colorado Dental Arts for the past 10 years, and could not be happier. I have a real phobia regarding dentistry, and they have treated me with great respect and without judgment. I cannot say enough about how great the staff is, and Dr. Krendl is just awesome.

A Look at the Crown Procedure

The Crown Procedure Timeline

After an initial exam to determine your overall dental health, Dr. Krendl will decide if a crown will be the best option to restore your tooth and discuss which material will best suit your dental needs and budget.

1st Appointment

Dr. Krendl will remove unhealthy tooth tissue, reshaping it to accept a crown in the process. Local anesthetic will keep you comfortable but sedation is always available should you need it.

Impressions

Next, he will take precise digital impressions of your tooth. These are then sent to our trusted outside lab for fabrication. The process takes about two weeks.

Temporary Crown Placement

Dr. Krendl will create and place a temporary crown to wear to protect your tooth. He will give you instructions on how to care for your temporary crown until your permanent one is ready.

2nd Appointment

When you return to our office, Dr. Krendl will inspect the permanent crown to make sure it looks and fits perfectly. He will then remove your temporary crown and cement your new, lifelike dental crown in place.

How to Care for Your New Dental Crown

Both permanent and temporary crowns from Colorado Dental Arts in Littleton are made of high-quality materials, but that does not mean they are indestructible. While restorations made of zirconia and IPS e.max offer a longer lifespan compared to porcelain, all dental crowns eventually need to be replaced. However, there are a few measures you can take to help extend the life of your crown, including:

Be Mindful of What You Eat

What you eat has a significant impact on the longevity of your dental crown. You will want to avoid chewy or sticky foods including caramel, chewing gum, and taffy, even after receiving your permanent crown. Hard foods such as pretzels, seeds, nuts, granola, hard candy, and ice can dislodge a crown and are best avoided. Tough-to-chew foods such as hard bread or steak can also cause issues with a temporary crown, but can still be eaten with the proper care following the placement of your permanent crown.

Maintain Proper Oral Hygiene

To maintain a dental crown, you can follow the same hygiene routine as you would for your natural teeth. To avoid scratching your restoration, we advise using non-abrasive toothpaste. Flossing front to back rather than up and down can help avoid dislodging your crown.

Visit the Dentist Regularly

Visiting the dentist at least twice a year allows Dr. Krendl to regularly monitor the condition of your crown. Should he spot any issue with your restoration, he can address it before it becomes a more serious problem.

Minimize Unnecessary Wear

Wearing a nightguard while you sleep can minimize excessive wear on your teeth and crown. Habits such as opening packages with your teeth, chewing on pens and pencils, and fingernail biting can also prematurely wear your restoration and should be avoided.
