Perfect Tooth Restoration

Placed over teeth that have been broken, treated with a root canal, stained, decayed, or are misshapen, a dental crown functions as a protective “cap.” These custom-crafted crowns are meticulously designed to match the color and contour of your natural teeth, and they have the potential to endure for more than 15 years. Furthermore, dental crowns can have dual purposes such as supporting a dental bridge or capping a dental implant, aside from their application in cosmetic adjustments or aesthetic enhancements.

What's The Process Of Getting A Crown?

An average crown visit usually takes 2 visits to complete.

Examining The Tooth To Start

Just like any other dental treatment, the initial step involves a dental examination. During this evaluation, the dentist will carefully assess and clean your teeth to ensure their optimal condition for a smooth placement. Should the tooth be fractured or extensively affected by decay, the damaged portions will be extracted. This paves the way for the dental crown to effectively safeguard the tooth from further decay.

How The Crown Is Molded And Shaped

Afterward, using dental putty, we’ll take an impression of your teeth, which will be used to fabricate full porcelain crowns. As part of the process, a temporary dental crown will be placed on your teeth until your subsequent visit. In cases where a tooth is absent and you’re considering a dental implant, we’ll create an impression of the implant and the neighboring teeth. This impression will guide our lab in crafting your unique custom crown.

Placing The Final Crown

At your second scheduled appointment, we’ll remove the temporary crown and replace it with a permanent version. This permanent crown will be securely attached using resilient dental cement or a discreet screw. To conclude, we’ll refine the crown’s surface and make any required adaptations to ensure your utmost comfort and assurance.

The Cost Of a Crown In Sparta

The cost of a dental crown can vary significantly among patients, depending on various factors. Typically covered by insurance, a single crown is usually priced around $200 to $600 or even higher. For those without insurance, a reasonable estimate for a crown could range from $800 to $1200 and more. Despite the ease with which most people choose a dental crown to restore their mouth’s appearance and function, the associated cost might still give you some pause.

What factors influence the cost of a dental crown?
  • The type of crown and the materials employed.
  • The complexity and location of the procedure.
  • The potential need for multiple crowns.
  • Incorporating the crown with other dental devices such as bridges.
  • The specific supplies and equipment required for your treatment.

Keep in mind that no dental practice can provide an accurate quote via phone. Your individual needs are as unique as your smile. It’s crucial to consult a dentist, undergo an oral examination, and explore your treatment options for an accurate cost estimate. If you have dental insurance, we’re here to provide a quote that you can submit, allowing you to understand your out-of-pocket costs before making your decision.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

The requirement for a crown after a root canal is greatly influenced by the tooth’s location within the oral cavity. Teeth located at the back, like molars and premolars, play a significant role in chewing and frequently demand crowns. On the other hand, front teeth such as incisors or canines, which don’t have a primary role in chewing, may not always need crowns.

One contrast between a crown and a filling is their resilience, especially when dealing with teeth that have substantial biting areas. The repetitive pressure arising from chewing or consistent clenching may result in fillings on the molars’ biting surfaces chipping or becoming dislodged. Conversely, a crown, forming a continuous surface extending from gumline to gumline, is designed to endure significantly more force over a prolonged period.

In your oral health, dental crowns assume two significant roles. Primarily, they restore the complete functionality of your tooth, granting you the ability to bite and chew without discomfort or pain, and without resorting to one-sided chewing. As a secondary yet equally vital aspect, crowns are meticulously designed to seamlessly blend with your natural teeth. This entails ensuring they are both colored and contoured to align with your overall aesthetic. Remarkably, there are instances where individuals completely forget which tooth has the crown.

A post isn’t quite synonymous with a dental implant (which is surgically inserted into the jawbone), but its essence is rather straightforward: a medical-grade post that can be affixed within a prepared root canal to reinforce the foundational structure and core of a dental crown. Dental posts are employed when there’s insufficient healthy tooth material left to ensure a secure hold for a crown.

The sensation of getting a crown can be reminiscent of receiving a filling, depending on the condition of your tooth. We take care to ensure you’re comfortably numbed, utilizing suitable local anesthesia and, if needed, freezing to make certain the tooth preparation process is painless. After the procedure, you might experience a slight degree of sensitivity or mild soreness in the gum area around the treated tooth for a brief period. If dental appointments trigger anxiety for you, do let us know! Our goal is to provide reassurance and ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible.

Typically, dental crowns have a lifespan of approximately 15 years. Nonetheless, with appropriate upkeep, they can extend their longevity to 25-30 years.

Proper maintenance of a dental crown mirrors the care required for a natural tooth. Regular brushing and flossing maintain the health and cleanliness of both the dental crown and the gum tissue around it. Routine dental cleanings and checkups with your dentist are indispensable for upholding your oral health.

I had a regularly scheduled check up and cleaning at Sparta Dental this morning. As always it was a wonderful visit. The staff is all very friendly and professional. Dr Emma is great. She makes you feel very comfortable. Today was good news ; no cavities and clean teeth. In the past when I have had some serious issues Dr. Emma explained everything fully in language I could understand, answered all my questions, explained my options and kept me as comfortable as possible. I liove Soarta Dental and strongly recommend this practice to anyone who is looking for a dentist. The staff is extremely helpful, professional, friendly and welcoming. Everything I have ever had done here has been excellent.

Everyone at this practice is super nice! I had my first visit and cleaning today and it was wonderful (I know, not a word associated with dentists. But I really mean it)! Scarlett cleaned my teeth and made me feel very comfortable about the whole process and explained every step! Dr. Emma came in for my exam and was very thorough and explained every issue I had in detail. She also set me up with a treatment plan to take care of everything! I have never liked going to the dentist, but everyone in this practice makes you feel very welcomed. I am actually looking forward to going back and have my teeth fixed.
