What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is like a cap for your tooth. It is placed over your tooth and cemented in place, to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.
The dental crown, when cemented into place, fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
Why would I get a dental crown?
There are lots of reasons you might need a crown, including:
- Protecting a weak tooth from breaking
- Holding together parts of a tooth that has cracked
- Restoring a tooth that has been worn down or has already been broken
- Covering and protect a tooth with a large filling, when there isn’t much tooth left
- Holding a dental bridge in place
- Covering poorly shaped or severely discolored teeth
- Covering a dental implant
- Making cosmetic modifications
How long does it take to get a dental crown?
Typically, our team can complete a dental crown in two appointments. During the first appointment, we will reshape the tooth, create a model of the tooth to send to our lab, and place a temporary crown to cover the tooth. During the second appointment, we will remove the temporary crown and place the permanent dental crown on your tooth. After some minor adjustments, you will have a perfectly fitting dental crown.
How much does a dental crown cost?
This depends on the type of material, the location of the tooth, and what other concerns you might have. We recommend you call one of our locations to make an appointment and see us today.
