Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a versatile and effective way to restore teeth that have been damaged or weakened. They are custom-made to fit over the existing tooth, providing a strong and durable covering that can last for many years. There are several types of dental crowns available, each with its own unique advantages. Porcelain crowns are a popular choice as they match the natural color of the tooth and are very durable. They are also very resistant to staining and discoloration. Metal crowns are another option, which are typically made of gold or other alloys. These crowns are very strong and can last for many years, but they may not match the color of the natural teeth. For those who want a more natural-looking crown, composite resin crowns are a great option. These crowns are made of a plastic material that can be matched to the color of the natural teeth. They are also less expensive than porcelain or metal crowns, making them a great choice for those on a budget.

At Thompson Family Dental at Nora, we understand the importance of having healthy, strong teeth. That’s why we offer dental crowns, a simple and effective way to restore the strength and appearance of your teeth. Dental crowns are a great way to repair damaged teeth, protect weak teeth, and improve the overall look of your smile. Dental crowns can be used to cover a tooth that has been damaged or decayed, to strengthen a tooth that is weak or fractured, or to improve the appearance of a tooth. They can also be used to help hold a dental bridge in place, or to cover a dental implant. Dental crowns are made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, gold, and metal alloys, and they provide a long-lasting solution for restoring your teeth. At Thompson Family Dental at Nora, we provide high-quality dental crowns that are designed to fit comfortably and look natural.

Cost of Dental Crowns

The cost of dental crowns varies depending on the type of material used and the complexity of the procedure. Generally, porcelain crowns cost more than metal crowns, and complex procedures may involve additional fees. Porcelain crowns can cost anywhere from $800 to $3,000 per crown, while metal crowns are typically less expensive, ranging from $500 to $1,500 per crown. The cost of a dental crown also depends on the type of insurance coverage you have. Most dental insurance plans will cover at least a portion of the cost of a crown, but the exact amount depends on the plan. Additionally, some dentists may offer financing options to help make the cost of dental crowns more affordable. It is important to speak with your dentist to get a better idea of the cost of your dental crown and what payment options are available.

Preparation for Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a type of restoration that is used to repair a tooth that is decayed, cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged. In order to prepare for a dental crown, your dentist will need to take an impression of your tooth and surrounding teeth. This impression will be used to create a custom-made crown that fits your mouth perfectly. Your dentist will also need to remove any decay or damaged areas of your tooth before the crown can be placed. Once the preparation is complete, your dentist will place a temporary crown over your tooth while your permanent crown is being made. This temporary crown will protect your tooth and help maintain the shape of your mouth until the permanent crown is ready. Once the permanent crown is ready, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and bond the permanent crown in place. With proper care, your dental crown can last for many years.

Aftercare for Dental Crowns

At our dental practice, we specialize in providing high-quality dental crowns to help restore the health and beauty of your smile. To ensure your crowns remain in the best condition possible, it is important to practice good oral hygiene and follow the aftercare instructions given to you by your dentist. Good oral hygiene is essential for maintaining the longevity of your crowns. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouthwash. Regular dental visits are also important for monitoring the condition of your crowns and for professional cleanings. It is important to avoid biting down on hard objects such as ice, popcorn kernels, and hard candy, as this can cause the crown to chip or break. Additionally, it is important to avoid overly sticky or hard foods, as these can also damage the crown. If you have any questions or concerns about your crowns, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
