What’s A Dental Crown?
Dental Crowns are protective covers dentists place over a tooth. They’re best used on decayed, cracked, or broken teeth. Since they provide ample protection and strength to a damaged tooth. Crowns are also prescribed after root canal treatments.
Do I Need A Crown?
There are two main reasons patients may need or want crowns. The first reason deals with the cosmetic. Patients with crooked or stained teeth will want crowns to hide the imperfections. The second reason is functional. Dental crowns provide strength and stability to weakened teeth. So if you have a cracked tooth, dental fillings, implants, or root canal, a crown adds stability.
How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
The lifespan of a dental crown is about 5 to 15 years. This is dependent on your personal dental hygiene habits. In addition to the amount of wear and tear your crown undergoes. At My Dentist Upland, we recommend patients avoid bad oral habits. Such as teeth grinding and clenching, ice chewing, and fingernail biting.
Is It Painful To Get A Dental Crown?
Getting a dental crown is a painless procedure. This is due to the fact that there will be numbing of the problem tooth. Once the anesthetic wears off, it’s common to feel some sensitivity and soreness. This sensitivity and soreness is temporary and will go away on its own.

Upland Dental Crowns by Dr. Zaveri
Crowns are prescribed by Upland dentist Dr. Zaveri for the repair of decayed, damaged and broken teeth. The tooth needs to be prepared and its surface structure is eliminated. After fabrication in the dental lab, the crown is then cemented to the tooth.
