Do you have cracked or chipped teeth? Maybe you want to replace a dental filling. Dental crowns are a versatile treatment option that protect teeth and provide stability to teeth and gums. They can also restore damaged teeth, complete a dental implant, and stabilize a tooth after a root canal. Dr. Frank Henrich offers treatment with dental crowns to patients in his Tulsa, OK office.
Dental Crowns FAQs
Learn the answers to your frequently asked questions about dental crowns below:
Is it painful to have a dental crown put on your tooth?
When placing dental crowns, Dr. Henrich will use a local anesthetic to numb the area, ensuring that you do not feel pain during the procedure. You may feel tooth sensitivity following the procedure, but this will fade over time.
What are dental crowns made of?
Dental crowns can be made of metals or porcelain. Temporary crowns are often made of stainless steel. Metal dental crowns require less tooth structure to be removed and porcelain dental crowns can be color-matched to natural teeth.
How long do dental crowns last?
On average, dental crowns last patients 15 years. However, with the right dental care, dental crowns can last up to 30 years.
