Tooth Crowns in Burke

Do you want to mask a misshapen tooth or preserve a decay-damaged tooth? Dental crowns may be a good option for you.

What Is a Tooth Crown and What Is Its Purpose?

Crowns for teeth are tooth-shaped caps that fit over an existing tooth all the way to the gum line. Crowns, or dental caps, are useful for many dental issues. They restore and provide strength to a broken or damaged tooth, support a tooth with a large filling, protect a root canal tooth and shore up teeth that support a dental bridge. When you have a dental implant, a tooth crown replaces your missing tooth.

What Type of Dentist Handles Crowns?

Crown placements are routine procedures, and your general dentist is eminently qualified to handle the entire process.

What Does a Dental Crown Procedure Include?

Our dentists can complete your crown in two short visits. At the first visit, your tooth is filed down to allow space for a crown. An impression of your tooth is made, and a ready-made temporary crown is placed over your tooth to protect it. You’ll return to our office a few weeks later, at which time we’ll cement your permanent crown to your tooth. We’ll check your bite and crown comfort and make any necessary adjustments at our office while you wait.

What Type of Care and Treatment Is Appropriate for a Crown?

Crowns are easy to care for; simply brush and floss twice daily as usual and return to our office for your regular dental cleanings and checkups. Your permanent crown should last 5 to 15 years. Some crowns can last as long as 20 or 25 years.

What Type of Dental Crowns Are Available for Patients?

There are several types of permanent crowns you and our dentist may discuss. Some of the most popular choices are:

Porcelain or Ceramic Crowns

Our dentists take great care to match your porcelain or ceramic crown to your surrounding tooth color. This ability to blend into your smile makes porcelain crowns a great option for a front tooth crown.

Metal Crowns

You may have a choice of several different metal alloys with your metal crown. Some people enjoy the appearance of a gold crown tooth as an alternative. Metal crowns are known for their long-lasting strength.

Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns

This crown is a blend of the two best types of crowns. Its metal understructure makes a strong, durable, well-bonded crown. Its porcelain top layer is very natural-looking.

What Do Dental Crowns Cost?

As with most dental procedures, tooth cap costs vary depending on your treatment plan and type of selected crown. Most discount dental plans and dental insurance programs provide partial coverage for the dental crown cost.

Our dentists are always pleased to assess your individual tooth health and make recommendations for a plan of treatment. If that plan involves a crown, our dentists will work with you to find a crown that fits your needs and your budget best.
