2. Removal of Old Crown

If remnants of the old crown are present, they are carefully removed.

3. Preparation of Tooth

The tooth is prepared for a new crown, which may involve reshaping and cleaning.

4. Impression Taking

Impressions of the tooth are made to create a custom-fit new crown.

Risks

When a dental crown is lost or broken, it exposes the underlying tooth to several potential risks that can affect both oral health and overall well-being. Addressing these issues promptly is crucial to avoid complications. Here are some of the primary risks associated with lost or broken crowns:

  • Tooth Decay and Damage: With the protective covering of a crown compromised, the exposed tooth is more susceptible to decay and further damage. The absence of a crown can lead to cavities developing at a faster rate on the exposed parts of the tooth.
  • Infection: An unprotected tooth is more vulnerable to bacteria, leading to infections that can affect the tooth’s pulp and even spread to surrounding teeth and gum tissue. In severe cases, this can result in the need for a root canal or even tooth extraction.
  • Increased Sensitivity: Without the protective barrier of the crown, the tooth may become more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, sweet foods, or even air. This can cause discomfort or pain during daily activities like eating and drinking.
  • Misalignment of Surrounding Teeth: A lost or broken crown can lead to shifting of the surrounding teeth as they move to fill the gap. This can affect your bite and lead to issues with jaw alignment and the need for orthodontic treatment.
  • Chewing and Bite Problems: The loss of a crown can impact your ability to chew properly, leading to uneven wear on other teeth and potential problems with your bite. Over time, this can cause jaw pain and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
  • Aesthetic Concerns: Especially for crowns located in the front of the mouth, a lost or broken crown can significantly affect the appearance of your smile and consequently, your self-confidence.
  • Further Restorative Work: Delaying the treatment of a lost or broken crown can lead to more extensive and costly dental procedures in the future, as the tooth may require additional work to restore its function and appearance.

Frequently asked questions
and their answers

If a crown breaks or falls out, contact your dentist right away. Save the crown if possible and limit the use of the tooth until it can be repaired or replaced to prevent damage.

Minor chip fractures may be repairable, but usually, a broken crown needs to be completely replaced for proper strength and function. Your dentist will examine it.

Replacing a crown takes 2-3 dental visits: one to take impressions, and one for crown placement. A temporary crown protects the tooth between appointments.

Having a crown replaced involves removing the old crown which may require some numbing. The placement process itself is painless due to anesthesia. Some sensitivity can occur afterward.

Avoid chewing hard foods, grinding teeth, opening items with teeth, and other behaviors that put undue force on crowns. See your dentist regularly to ensure a proper fit.

Common crown materials include porcelain fused to metal, zirconia, ceramic, gold alloys, or other composite resins. Your dentist will recommend the best material option.
