Gold Crown

 

As you age, your teeth age too. Decay, fillings, trauma or even just normal chewing habits can make your teeth break down over time. A Gold dental crown or a cap is a cover that is placed over a tooth to protect a weakened tooth from further fracturing or deteriorating. A gold crown could also be used to protect a tooth that has had a root canal. Lastly, a new gold crown is necessary to simply replace an old worn down or defective crown.

 

As a rule; the more precious metal or gold content in the metal the better the fit and better for the health of the gums around the crown. Keep in mind that fit is an important factor in sealing out the bacteria that tries to get between the crown and the tooth, possibly causing decay and premature failure of the crown.

 

The Gold Crown Treatment
It normally takes two visits for your dentist to complete your crown. On your first visit your dentist will shape and prepare the tooth so the crown can properly fit over it. Next, an impression of the tooth is taken and a temporary crown is inserted to protect the prepared tooth. This impression is then sent to a dental laboratory where a custom-fit permanent crown is made.

On your second visit the permanent crown is placed. If the fit and shape of the crown are satisfactory your dentist will proceed with permanently cementing it into place.

Gold Crown Post Treatment Expectations
After the successful completion of the crown it is not uncommon to feel some discomfort, mild pain when you chew, or sensitivity to temperature changes for a few days. Also, if your newly cemented porcelain crown feels too tall or your bite doesn’t feel right, you should contact your dentist.

Cleaning Your Crown
Please keep in mind that the longevity of your crown depends in large part on the materials in the crown, as well as your oral hygiene, diet and the health of the supporting tooth and gums. It is important to maintain all of your teeth with proper brushing and flossing.
