What Are Dental Crowns?
Crowns are ceramic, tooth-shaped caps that completely cover an existing tooth. We utilize advanced tools and technology to ensure that your crown looks similar to your natural teeth so that it blends in seamlessly. Before placing your crown, we’ll reshape the tooth so that the crown fits in snugly in the space. Then, we’ll take impressions of your tooth and send it to our off-site lab where they’ll fabricate your custom-fitted crown. Once we receive your crown back from our lab, we’ll use a strong dental cement to secure your crown in place.
After you receive your crown, you can get back to enjoying a fully functioning, healthy smile. Crowns don’t require any additional maintenance, but make sure to keep up with a proper at-home oral hygiene regimen and schedule your biannual dental visits to make sure that your oral health and your crown are in tip-top shape!
Purpose of Crowns
Crowns can be used to treat a myriad of dental problems. They:
- Replace a Missing Tooth when Paired with a Dental Implant
- Restore a Misshapen or Severely Discolored Tooth
- Strengthen a Cracked, Chipped, or Broken Teeth
- Support a Tooth with a Large Filling or After Root Canal Therapy
The Cost of Crowns
The cost of dental crowns varies on a case-by-case basis. We’ll have to conduct a thorough, in-person examination and provide you with an accurate cost breakdown based on your specific needs. We’ll never surprise you with hidden fees, so we’ll make sure that you are well-informed regarding your out-of-pocket costs and insurance coverage (if applicable). After we go over the cost, we’ll walk you through your payment options to help you fit this tooth-preserving treatment into your budget!
