Dental Crowns


Do you have a dental problem that could be solved by a crown? You might be surprised at the answer. Dr. Gursimran Sidhu or Dr. Ansh Desai, may suggest an appointment for a dental crown in North Quincy, Massachusetts, to improve or protect a tooth, or even help in placing a bridge. For more information, and to schedule your visit with our dentists, call Spring Dental at 617-328-0790.

A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom-made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our dentists will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.

Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:

  • To protect a tooth following root canal treatment
  • To anchor and attach a dental bridge
  • To cover and complete a dental implant
  • To enhance the beauty of your smile
  • To improve a misshapen tooth
  • To strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak
  • To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains

To find out whether a dental crown is right for you, we welcome you to contact us today!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental same-day crowns a painful process?

The tooth and its environs are numbed by local anesthesia. During same-day crowns, they were creating a pain-free experience. Some patients may have discomfort or relief after surgery. Surgical discomfort can be controlled with over-the-counter pain medication.

How should I care for my silver crown tooth?

Looking at a silver crown tooth is like looking at your natural teeth. Using a toothbrush twice daily, flossing daily, and going to the dentist for a checkup and cleaning are essential. Avoid biting objects, and be mindful of any grinding or squeezing tendencies that could put pressure on the crown.

Can temporary dental crowns be whitened if they are stained?

Temporary dental crowns are stain-resistant and made from materials that do not normally erode color. If the natural teeth around the crown are stained, professional teeth whitening can be done to achieve an even shade throughout your smile.

What types of temporary dental crowns are there?

There are many types of temporary dental crowns, including porcelain, all-ceramic, gold, and zirconia crowns, and the choice of crown materials depends on factors such as tooth location, esthetic preference, and budget.

Can silver crown tooth become loose or fall out?

In rare cases, the silver crown tooth may become loose or dislodged. If this happens, contacting your dentist as soon as possible is important. The situation will be assessed, and the appropriate course of action will be determined, including re-cementing the crown or making a new one if necessary.
