What is a Dental Crown?Sometimes referred to as a cap, a dental crown fits over your natural tooth structure, fully encasing it. There are many advantages to a dental crown including:
|•||Crowns provide strength to a tooth that has been weakened following root canal therapy.|
|•||Crowns restore teeth that have cracked or fractured.|
|•||Crowns restore teeth that have been damaged due to bruxism, including worn or flattened.|
|•||Crowns can enhance the beauty of teeth that are uneven, gapped, or discolored.|
Crowns are designed to function as your natural tooth would, they fit snugly on a tooth and cemented in place. Crowns protect the tooth from any further damage and will preserve your jaw's correct natural alignment.
What are Crowns made of?When choosing your dental crown, there are several options. The most common materials include: gold, porcelain fused to metal, or all-porcelain crowns. Increasingly, we are seeing ceramic crowns increase in popularity. Zirconia ceramic crowns has become a highly popular choice. To maintain a beautiful, and fully white smile, we recommend ceramic crowns for your front, more visible, teeth. With our precise color matching, Dr. Hablutzel can find the right shade to blend with your natural tooth color. Depending on the restoration work that needs to be done, we can design, fit, and place your crowns in just two office visits.
Other Uses for Dental CrownsBesides the repair of a single tooth, there are other restorations that can be made using a dental crown. We can:
|•||Design a fixed bridge. A fixed bridge uses two dental crowns to serve as anchors for a false tooth between. This option is for the replacement of a missing tooth.|
|•||Place over a dental implant. When a tooth is missing, we can replace the root with a dental implant. Implants are a titanium device that looks similar to a screw which is then placed directly into the jawbone. Once healed, we place a dental crown over the implant, for a permanent replacement of a missing tooth.|
What are the costs of a dental crown?The costs of dental crowns can vary. It will depend on several factors including the material you choose, the prep work that needs to be done, and what your insurance is willing to cover. Our front office staff is happy to review the costs with you based on those factors. We are also have to discuss other options as needed.
