As you plan your cosmetic dental services, you might find that dental crowns will need to be used in your procedures. Crowns are often used to cover teeth that have been chipped or cracked or that have been eroded over time by decay or improper bite. The crown serves to protect the remains of the tooth and to restore the tooth to a pleasing aesthetic appearance.
In the past, crowns were made out of metal because the material was long-lasting and strong. However, these crowns were not aesthetically pleasing. Today’s crowns are made from either resin or porcelain materials that not only hold up well but also have the appearance of natural teeth.
The first step in placing a dental crown is reshaping the original tooth. Then, any decay on the tooth is removed as well as any parts of the healthy tooth that need to be eliminated in order to properly place the dental crown. The amount of tooth removed will depend on the tooth’s condition and the type of crown being placed. Next, the tooth is scanned so that the crown will be fabricated to fit the tooth precisely. Then, a temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth until the patient’s next visit when he or she will receive their permanent dental crown.
Cost of your crowns may usually be covered by your dental insurance or extended dental coverage. However if you don’t have insurance or If you are looking for more information about the cost of a specific service, please contact one of our expert Treatment Coordinators for help.
