  • What is a dental crown?

    A dental crown is a custom-made cap that fits over a damaged, decayed, or cosmetically unappealing tooth. It’s designed to restore the tooth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are typically made from porcelain, ceramic, or metal and bonded to the existing tooth structure. Crowns are used for various reasons, such as protecting a weak tooth from breaking, covering a dental implant, or improving the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth.

  • What is a dental bridge?

    A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth by bridging the gap left by a missing tooth or teeth. A bridge is made up of crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap—these are called abutment teeth—and a false tooth or teeth in between. These false teeth, called pontics, can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials and are supported by natural teeth or implants. Bridges help restore the ability to chew and speak properly and maintain the shape of your face.

  • How much does a dental crown cost?

    We understand the importance of affordable dental treatments for our patients and strive to offer cost-effective options. The cost of a dental crown can vary depending on the material used and the complexity of the procedure.

     Typically, porcelain crowns cost between $518.50 and $1,435. The final out-of-pocket cost will depend on your dental insurance coverage, with many PPO plans covering up to 80% of the procedure.

    It’s essential to consult with your dental provider and insurance company to obtain an accurate estimate.

  • What is the process for getting a dental crown?

    The dental crown process typically involves two visits. During the first visit, the dentist prepares the tooth by removing any decay and shaping it to fit the crown. An impression of the tooth and surrounding teeth is taken and sent to a dental lab to create the custom crown. A temporary crown is placed on the tooth to protect it until the permanent crown is ready. The dentist will install the temporary crown during this visit.

     On the second visit, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is fitted, adjusted, and cemented in place. The recovery time after getting a dental crown can vary from person to person. Generally, most people can return to normal activities right after getting a dental crown. However, it’s common to feel some sensitivity or discomfort in the treated area for a few days.

    Follow any post-procedural instructions provided by your dentist, which may include avoiding hard or sticky foods for a brief period. Overall, recovery time is quick, and discomfort usually disappears within a few days. If you experience prolonged or severe pain, it’s best to consult with your dentist.

  • When do I need a dental crown?

    You might need a dental crown for several reasons, including:

    • Saving a cracked or weakened tooth: a crown can protect teeth and keep them from breaking and hold together the parts of a cracked tooth
    • Restoring a tooth: a crown can restore an already broken or severely worn tooth
    • Covering and supporting a tooth: a crown can cover a tooth with a large filling and support the tooth when there isn’t much left
    • Holding a dental bridge in place
    • Covering misshapen or severely discolored teeth
    • Covering a dental implant
    • Covering a tooth treated with a root canal
