What are Dental Crowns?
Patients who experience severe decay, chips, cracks, or breaks in teeth that cannot be repaired with more conservative fillings, inlays, or onlays, may need a dental crown. A crown fits over the remaining dental structure offering support and protection for teeth and restoring function to bite. Patients may also need a dental crown if they undergo root canal therapy or as part of a single tooth implant procedure.

About One Visit Crowns
A crown is used to cover a damaged tooth in order to protect it from further damage. Crowns can last up to 10 years if taken care of properly. This process exhausts the need for temporary crowns, thus making your visits less frequent and more enjoyable. Kodish-Perez Dental Group has performed many successful one visit crown procedures.

What To Expect With Dental Crowns
Once a fabricated crown is made and is placed upon the tooth, the fit and color are checked to ensure your needs are fully covered, as well as your overall happiness.
What happens when a dental crown falls out?
Dentists know that when a crown falls out, it can be very frustrating. Make sure you protect your tooth with temporary dental wax when this occurs. You are at risk of exposing the more sensitive parts of your tooth if it isn't covered. Next, contact Kodish-Perez Dental Group as soon as you can for an emergency dental appointment in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We can provide a new and improved permanent crown to replace the old one.

Dental Crowns FAQ
What kinds of problems does a dental crown fix?
Dental crowns can restore teeth that are decayed, worn down, cracked, weakened, chipped, discolored, or misshapen. A crown helps preserve the integrity of the tooth, protects it from any further damage, covers discoloration, and allows you to keep the tooth. A dental crown is also often used to anchor a partial bridge in the mouth.
Will a dental crown look natural or fake?
Dr. Kodish and Dr. Perez carefully choose the shade of your crown to match the color of your natural teeth so that it blends invisibly into your smile, with nobody but you knowing that you have a crown.
Is having a dental crown placed painful?
No, most people don't experience any more discomfort than an ordinary dental procedure like a filling. During your procedure, Dr. Perez or Dr. Kodish will numb the treatment area with a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. After the permanent crown is placed, some patients may experience mild tooth sensitivity, but this usually goes away within a few days as the tooth adjusts to the crown.
How long can I expect my dental crown to last?
Typically, most crowns can last between 10 – 15 years or longer with regular checkups and good oral hygiene practices.
