What Are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns offer instant relief from pain and discomfort associated with broken or severely decayed teeth. The dental crown covers the sensitive portion of the teeth, preventing further damage and providing prompt pain relief.

These restorations also improve the structural integrity of your teeth, so you can enjoy an unrestricted diet. They also restore the appearance of damaged teeth, enhancing your smile and boosting your confidence. It's worth noting that dental crowns are extremely durable and can last fifteen years or more if you care for them properly.

What Dental Issues Can Crowns Resolve?

Dental Decay

Dental crowns are especially useful for addressing severe dental decay with large extensive cavities. The dentist will remove the decayed portions of the teeth and disinfect them before installing the dental crown. The crown restores the damaged portions and protects the tooth from further dental decay.


Dentists may also recommend dental crowns for teeth with large fractures. The crowns restore the fractured portion of your teeth, giving it strength and the ability to chew and bite into different foods. They’re useful when dental bonding and fillings aren’t viable solutions for the fracture.

Worn-Out Teeth

Additionally, you can get dental crowns to address issues of worn-out teeth. The crowns will cover the worn-out teeth, providing protection and allowing you to bite and chew your food effortlessly. They’re also stronger than natural teeth and prevent further wear to the affected tooth.

The Crown Treatment Process

Consultation and Treatment Plan

Our Round Rock dentist must first examine your teeth before you can get dental crowns. This dental examination occurs during the initial consultation, which involves discussions about your dental history, physical examinations, and taking X-rays. Next, the dentist will create a treatment plan for your dental crowns if deemed suitable for the procedure.

Taking Impressions and Crown Fabrication

With the treatment plan in place, the dentist will inject a local anesthetic in the area below the tooth and then use a drill to remove the decayed portions of the tooth. Next, they’ll use dental putty to take impressions of the tooth and send the model to a lab responsible for manufacturing your custom dental crowns.

Crown Placement and Aftercare

The crowns should arrive from the lab two weeks after the consultation, after which the dentist will schedule an appointment to place the crown on your teeth. This Involves checking whether it fits on the tooth and whether the color matches it. If so, the dentist will bond the crown to your tooth with dental cement and, after installation, give instructions for caring for your dental crowns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

The longevity of dental crowns depends on the type and how well you care for them. Metal, ceramic, and porcelain crowns last ten to fifteen years. Acrylic crowns only last a few weeks since they’re temporary crowns. Still, it’s worth noting that eating hard foods and neglecting your oral hygiene could significantly compromise your crown’s lifespan.

Does Insurance Cover Dental Crowns?

Yes, most insurance companies cover the cost of installing and repairing dental crowns. However, some insurers may be reluctant to cover dental crowns that you get for purely cosmetic reasons. Check with your provider to learn their coverage policy on dental crowns.

Can I Just Get a Crown Without a Root Canal?

Yes, root canals aren’t mandatory for getting dental crowns. However, dentists might recommend crowns after root canals to replace the decayed portions that they removed during treatment. Still, you don’t have to get a root canal to get dental crowns, and neither do you have to get a dental crown after a root canal.
