    What Are Dental Crowns

    Dental crowns are protective coverings that fit over the visible portion of damaged or weakened teeth. We customize those using durable materials, including metal and porcelain, to restore the appearance and functions of your teeth.

    Crowns are a versatile treatment option as they not only protect the tooth but also conceal various cosmetic flaws. Our St. John’s, NL, prosthodontist may recommend dental crowns for different reasons, which may include:

    • To restore a fractured, decayed, or broken tooth
    • To increase the structural integrity of a weak tooth
    • To cover a stained or discolored tooth
    • To modify the shape of an irregular-sized tooth
    • To support a tooth with a large dental filling
    • To provide a temporary covering for decayed baby teeth
    • To cover and support a root-canal-treated tooth
    • To cover a dental implant

    Process of Dental Crowns in St. John’s, NL

    Getting a new dental crown at our facility is a simple process that usually takes two dental appointments. On the first visit, we will examine the extent of tooth damage to determine the best type of crown for your oral and aesthetic requirements. We will start by injecting a local anesthetic to numb your teeth and gums.

    In the next step, our prosthodontist will shave off a thin enamel layer to ensure comfortable crown placement. If a tooth does not have adequate tissue to support a crown, we will use a post and core technique to enhance its stability.

    We will then record impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab with shade specifications. This step may take 10 to 14 days, so during this period, we will protect your prepared tooth with a temporary covering.

    Once the crown is ready, we will fix it over your teeth in the second appointment. Our specialist will ensure that it aligns with your natural bite and does not cause discomfort. Within just two visits, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in your smile and oral functions!

    How Long Do Crowns Last

    Our dental crowns in St. John’s, NL, are made from high-quality dental materials, offering long-lasting support and protection. However, the durability of crowns depends on several factors, such as the type of crown, placement technique, and oral hygiene maintenance.

    On average, dental crowns typically last for 10 to 15 years. However, if you have habits like teeth grinding, jaw clenching, or biting on harsh objects, they may wear out earlier than normal. You can consult our specialist for preventive measures to protect your teeth and dental work.

    From the moment that I first met Dr. Chedella at his dentist chair, I knew I was in good hands. I had implants started in another country but not finished due to the pandemic. Dr. Chedella did a perfect job in completing the procedure. After waiting 20 months in limbo, I can't thank you enough Dr. Chedella.

    Nice friendly staff. The doctor gave practical, easy advice on every day changes I could make to help my TMJ problem - and it worked! One of the few specialists I’ve seen in years who I didn’t feel was trying to push an expensive device or unnecessary procedure on me - it was refreshing.
