A beautiful confident smile goes a long way! We can help you look your best with a dental crown

People can damage their teeth from chewing on hard foods or neglecting their oral health. Old age, tooth decay, and accidental injuries can also cause teeth to suffer damage too. Sometimes dental fillings can help restore damaged teeth, but not always. Significantly damaged teeth will require caps, also known as dental crowns.

What is a Dental Crown? 

A dental crown is a cap that covers a damaged or misshaped tooth. The crown size and shape are meant to resemble an ordinary tooth. So not only does the crown appear like a natural tooth, but it also functions like a natural tooth as well. 

Your dentist may recommend you for one or more dental crowns if you have weak teeth, broken teeth, a dental bridge, severely discolored teeth, misshaped teeth, or a dental implant.

The benefits you can enjoy from receiving a dental crown:

1) Restore Your Chewing Power 

You can eat normally! Dental crowns restore the chewing power of the previously damage tooth. 

2) Restore Your Beautiful White Smile 

Chipped or jagged teeth can cause you to have an embarrassingly unbalanced smile.  Dental crowns  will restore the appearance of your beautiful white smile by covering the existing visual imperfections of your damaged teeth.  

3) Permanent and Long Lasting 

After your dental crown procedure, you will have permeant caps covering your damaged teeth. You can enjoy all your favorite foods!

Dental crowns are long-lasting if you practice standard oral care. Many patients end up keeping their crowns for between 5 and 15 years. 

4) Relieves Discomfort 

If you have a sensitive tooth causing you pain or discomfort, an effective way to get relief is to cover the tooth with a dental crown. Then your tooth won’t be as sensitive when coming in contact with cold or hot foods or drinks.   

5) Customized for Your Mouth 

The dentist will custom-design your crown to match the same color, shape, and size of the tooth it will cover.  First, the dentist makes an exact impression of your tooth and uses it to create your crown. Next, the dentist removes the outer portion of your tooth to make the crown fit properly with your smile and bite.

Dental Crown FAQs 

Most dental crowns have a lifespan of up to 15 years, depending on how well you practice good oral hygiene. 

Remember that crowns can still deteriorate like natural teeth, so you cannot neglect your oral health. In addition, stay away from terrible biting habits like chewing on ice or biting your fingernails.

The dental crowns available are metal crowns, porcelain crowns, resin crowns, and ceramic crowns. The primary distinctions between them pertain to their durability and price. 

Metal crowns last the longest because they use chromium, palladium, or nickel material that is difficult to break or chip. They also offer strong chewing power against tough solid foods. The only downside is their more obvious metallic color. 

If you want the crowns to match the appearance of your other teeth, then you’ll want to choose porcelain or ceramic crowns. They are not as durable as metal, but they look much better.

The dental crown cost is affordable for the average patient. Most insurances will cover the cost of the dental crown. The exact cost is dependent on your exact oral health. Contact us today to schedule a dental appointment and get an exact price.
