What is a Dental Crown?

In situations where a filling, an inlay, or an onlay may not be enough to restore your tooth, a dental crown might be recommended. This is a cap that can completely cover the dental structure. Our office provides gold crowns as well as lifelike porcelain, zirconia, and EMAX crowns. Regardless of the type of crown you get, you can expect it to keep your tooth safe from further damage while also strengthening it so that it can still fulfill its normal functions.

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 to 15 years or even longer.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

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

  • Relieving uncomfortable symptoms, such as your tongue being irritated by the jagged edge of a chipped tooth.
  • Being relatively simple to create and place.
  • Being custom-made to suit the part of your smile in question.
  • Enhancing the appearance of your teeth by masking all kinds of aesthetic flaws.
  • Lasting upwards of 10-15 years if you take proper care of them with excellent oral hygiene and regular dental checkups.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Dental Crown?

A dental crown may be placed for several reasons, such as:

  • 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 received root canal treatment.
  • 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.
