Do I Need a Dental Crown?
You could be a good candidate for a dental crown if you have broken or chipped teeth, dental damage usually caused by an injury, or have a weakened tooth after a procedure, such as a root canal. A dental crown is possibly the most cost-effective way to rehabilitate a damaged tooth without having to extract it.
If you have a broken or damaged tooth and are considering getting a dental crown, come in for a consultation at one of our Absolute Dental offices in Las Vegas. Our experienced dentists can help determine what type of dental crown fits your needs and what you can expect.
How Long is the Dental Crown Process?
Getting a dental crown may take multiple visits to your dentist for a fitting and to place the actual crown. The amount of time it takes also depends on the condition of your teeth and gums. If your tooth is severely damaged, it may also be necessary to have a root canal or other dental procedure before preparing the tooth to fit the crown.

FAQs About Our Dental Crown Services in Las Vegas
A dental crown will typically last for about 15 years before needing to be replaced. However, a well-maintained dental crown can potentially last for decades with the proper care. By practicing good oral hygiene and avoiding potential risks, such as chewing hard foods, you can help to extend the lifespan of your crown.
When it comes to installing a dental crown, the tooth being capped and the surrounding area are completed numbed, so the patient shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. After the local anesthetic wears off, there may be some sensitivity in and around the tooth, but this will subside quickly.
Foods you should avoid with a dental crown include anything excessively sticky, chewy, hard, or tough, as they can potentially damage the crown or cause it to become loose. Some examples include nuts, seeds, granola, taffy, pretzels, and ice cubes. You should also take precautions with heavily stained foods or drinks. Although a crown is resistant to discoloration, your other teeth may become stained, resulting in uneven coloring.

What is the Dental Crown Process?
- Once any infections have been cleared and all preliminary dental work is complete, our Absolute Dental cosmetic dentist will file down or build up the broken tooth, depending on the type of damage.
- Next, they will make an impression of your tooth so that the dental crown can be designed specifically to fit snugly and perfectly over the tooth. We will fit you with a temporary dental crown to protect the broken tooth until your permanent dental crown is ready.
- It is very important that you avoid eating chewy and sticky foods at this point in the procedure. Chewing with the opposite side of the mouth and avoiding hard foods like apples and carrots, will help relieve any pressure to the chipped tooth with the temporary crown.
- The last step is to have the permanent crown placed over the damaged tooth. Your dentist will take x-rays to determine the crown is fits perfectly in your mouth.
The Benefits of a Dental Crown
Some of the benefits of a dental crown include:
- A natural appearance that blends perfectly with your smile
- Saving your original and natural tooth structure
- More cost-effective than more expensive treatments like dental bridgework or dental implants.
Additionally, new bonding materials, as well as the ceramic or porcelain blends used to make the crowns, are constantly being improved to make sure that dental crowns are secure and will potentially last a lifetime.
Letting your broken, chipped, or decaying tooth remain untreated puts you at risk for medical problems and expensive treatments in the future. If you suspect these types of problems, it is strongly advised to schedule a consultation as soon as possible.
