A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a 'cap'. Crowns are an ideal way to repair teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. A crown can help strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there aren't enough teeth remaining to hold the filling. Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that's already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It's also used to cover a dental implant. You will need to have at least two visits to the dentist. At the first visit, your dental team will prepare the tooth, take the impressions, make a note of the shade of your tooth, and fit the temporary crown. At the second visit, your dentist will fit the permanent crown. There will usually be about 1 to 2 weeks between appointments. Dental Crowns cause pain for a number of reasons. If your crown was fitted without having a root canal procedure to remove the tooth pulp, it could be putting pressure on a traumatized nerve. And unless the bite, also known as occlusion, is perfectly aligned, a patient who grinds his or her teeth during sleep could experience pain from pressing down on any high spots or areas where the tooth is higher than it should be. Another cause of pain comes from previous fillings, particularly those made from silver, may have had leakages resulting in bacteria infecting the nerve root.
