Process of Getting a Dental Crown

During your first dental crown appointment, your dentist in Wethersfield will carefully reshape the tooth so that the crown will be able to cover it. We’ll then capture impressions of both the tooth in need of treatment and the surrounding teeth in order to ensure comfortable, precise results. As a last step, our team will provide you with a temporary crown so that the tooth is well-protected while you wait for the permanent restoration.

After the dental laboratory has sent us your new crown, return to the office so that we can remove the temporary version and finally cement your permanent restoration in place. As long as you care for it properly with brushing and flossing and attend regular checkups, your new restoration should serve your smile well for 10-15 years or even longer.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Crowns can benefit your smile in many ways, such as:

  • They can relieve uncomfortable symptoms, such as your tongue being irritated by the jagged edge of a chipped tooth.
  • Creating and placing a crown requires a relatively simple procedure.
  • Each crown is custom-made to suit that part of your smile.
  • Crowns can enhance the appearance of your teeth by masking all kinds of aesthetic flaws.
  • If you take proper care of them with excellent oral hygiene and regular dental checkups, your crown can last upwards of 10-15 years.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Dental Crown?

A dental crown may be placed for several reasons, like:

  • To restore a broken, cracked, or fractured tooth
  • To repair a decayed tooth when a filling isn’t enough
  • To protect a tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy
  • To improve the appearance of a cosmetically displeasing tooth
  • To pair with a dental implant to replace a missing tooth

Understanding the Cost of Dental Crowns

It’s impossible to give you an estimate of how much you’ll end up paying for your crown without one of our dentists first giving your mouth a thorough evaluation. The total cost of your crown will depend on a few factors, like the location of the tooth, the material of the crown, and the size of the tooth. For this reason, it’s best that you come in for a consultation where we can discuss in more detail the cost of your crown.
