Dental Crowns 101
Dental crowns are ceramic or porcelain caps that completely cover an existing tooth. They are an extremely versatile procedure that can be used for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. You may need a dental crown if you:
- Have a severely discolored tooth
- Need to cover a misshapen, non-uniform tooth
- Have a cracked or chipped tooth that needs protection
- Need a tooth restoration to go on top of your dental implant
- Have a root canal
Dental Crown FAQs
How are Crowns Made?
Crowns are made out of ceramic or porcelain material in an off-site milling unit. The unit takes measurements submitted and the virtual 3D model that we make with our smile preview software to create a precise, custom-fitted dental crown.
Are Dental Crowns Expensive?
The price of your crown (or crowns) depends on your unique smile needs. During your exam and consultation, we will assess your needs and oral health, check your insurance coverage (if applicable), and provide you with an accurate out-of-pocket cost breakdown for your treatment. We’ll also go over our financial options and work with you to help you restore your smile without breaking the bank!
Will Dental Crowns Need to be Replaced?
Possibly. However, with proper care, crowns can last a long time. It’s important to brush and floss regularly because the tooth underneath your crown can still be susceptible to decay. We also recommend that you come into our office every six months for a check up and exam. If your dental crown gets damaged, we perform repairs in-house.
