Crowns Q & A

What is a dental crown?

Dr. Khosrovani places a dental crown on top of a damaged tooth to act like a cover or cap. He might suggest a dental crown to: 

  • Cover a dental implant
  • Protect and fix a chipped, discolored, badly shaped, broken, or damaged tooth
  • Securely hold a dental bridge in place

Dr. Khosrovani carefully attaches your dental crown on top of your original tooth, so it covers the visible portion of your tooth above the gumline.

Are there different kinds of crowns?

Most crowns are derived from a sturdy ceramic material. A Briter Smile offers different types of crowns, including EMAX.

EMAX crowns

EMAX is a highly effective brand of dental crowns derived from lithium disilicate ceramic — a strong and aesthetically beautiful material. The EMAX system is most suitable for crowns on your front teeth.

What is the procedure for dental crowns?

Traditional crowns usually require a few office visits. Your impressions are sent to a lab where your crowns are created. This typically takes about a week or two. You return to the office when your crowns are ready, and Dr. Khosrovani cements your crowns to your teeth. 

Dr. Khosrovani might stain your crown to better match your teeth, before glazing or polishing your crown in a special furnace and cementing the crown to your teeth.
