Tooth Crowns in Dalton

If you’re embarrassed about your smile because you have cavities or broken teeth, then a tooth crown might be the solution you seek.

Why Might I Need a Tooth Crown?

A dental crown completely covers a tooth, which can be ideal for broken, chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth. Crowns are made from material that is similar in color and texture to that of your natural teeth, so no one will know you have any. Crowns can also be used when a filling is cracked or when a tooth is too badly damaged to support a filling. Sometimes, a crown is used to anchor a bridge.

Where Can I Go for Crown Installation?

Crown installation is considered to be a routine dental procedure and all of our knowledgeable dentists can install one or more dental crowns for teeth. Call us or visit us and we can schedule your crown installation.

What Are the Differences Between the Types of Crowns?

Tooth crowns are available in two types: permanent and temporary. A temporary crown is prefabricated and will be used between the time your tooth is being prepared and your permanent crown is ready to be installed. A permanent crown is custom made for you and is made of longer-lasting material.

Is a Ceramic Crown a Good Option?

Ceramic crowns are made from ceramic that has a porcelain base. Ceramic is more brittle than porcelain, but it’s also closer in appearance to your natural teeth, so ceramic is the material of choice for a front tooth crown.

Is a Porcelain Crown a Better Choice?

A porcelain crown is fused to a metal base, which makes it more durable than a ceramic one. Porcelain crowns are usually used for the side. Their metal construction makes them more durable and provides a better seal at installation, which helps prevent leakage and recurrent decay.

The Crown Installation Process

You should plan for at least two office visits for the dental crown procedure. If you require additional work, such as a root canal, then you’ll probably need additional visits to get your tooth crown in.

On your first visit, your dentist will examine your tooth and your overall oral health. If both are satisfactory, then he or she will file down the tooth that needs to be capped and then take an impression of it. The impression will be sent to the lab where it will be used to fabricate your permanent cap and you’ll be supplied with a temporary tooth cap to use in the interim. When your permanent cap is ready, your dentist will install it and adjust it so that it is comfortable and works well.

What Are the Associated Costs for Crowns?

Your dental crown costs will depend on your unique circumstances. The condition of your oral health, the type of crown you select (gold crown tooth, porcelain, or ceramic), and your dental insurance benefits will all affect the total cost of your dental caps. Our office can provide you with more detailed information that is specific to your dental crown cost, so call us today.

Oral Hygiene and Crowns

Your dental crowns can last for decades if you exercise good oral hygiene practices, including regular cleanings and checkups. Call our office today and we’ll schedule an appointment for you.
