What is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are custom crafted “caps” that are made to fit over the biting surface of your damaged or weakened teeth above the gumline. This restoration can be made from a variety of different materials, like gold, ceramic, and porcelain. Dental crowns are often times recommended for patients who are dealing with the following dental issues:

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

Having a dental crown placed is a relatively straightforward process that can be completed in just two appointments. First, our team will examine your smile to ensure that a dental crown is the best option for you. Your tooth will then be prepared by having a thin layer of enamel removed to make room for the restoration. Next, an impression is taken and sent to a dental laboratory where your crown will be made. You will be given a temporary crown until your permanent one is ready. This way, your tooth will remain protected, and you will be able to get used to how your new crown will feel.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown

There are numerous benefits of opting for a dental crown. Here are some of the ones that you can expect to experience:

Understanding the Cost of Dental Crowns

While you may want dental crowns, the expense may leave you hesitant. That’s a fair concern – you can’t benefit from a treatment outside your budget. Still, the cost of dental crowns varies by patient; you’ll need to consult our dentists for a precise estimate. Once the price is tallied, though, we’ll work to make your care affordable. Our team will even explain the treatment cost factors and payment options. To learn more, just keep reading or call our office for the details.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Dental Crowns

At the start of treatment, you’ll receive an oral exam. This step lets us assess factors related to crown cost. In particular, such elements include:

  • Crown Material – Depending on a crown’s material, it can cost less or more. For example, one made of metal is usually pretty cheap. Meanwhile, a porcelain or ceramic one is a tad pricier.
  • Crown Processing  – When milled by a lab, dental crowns aren’t costly. However, those made with same-day CEREC technology are more expensive.
  • Tooth Damage – The more damaged your tooth, the more a crown will cost. A pearly white with only minor chips (for instance) may only need the cap itself. Alternatively, a severely damaged tooth needs a crown and preliminary work.

While reviewing the factors above, don’t forget that cheap crowns aren’t ideal. Good oral health requires a high-quality treatment, often charging a bit more. So, get a durable, long-lasting crown for yourself.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dental Crowns?

Luckily, dental insurance usually does cover dental crowns. Most plans view them as a necessary and major procedure. That being the case, they often extend coverage to 50% of a crown’s cost.

Of course, there are occasional exceptions to this rule. Your own plan may not cover crowns. There’s also a chance its coverage involves special rules. Therefore, remember to confirm your benefits before treatment. Our office staff can even help with that process.

Other Options for Making Dental Crowns Affordable

Even without insurance, though, other ways exist to make crowns affordable. The best of these are a dental practice’s special payment options. If you find the right kind, an otherwise pricey and high-quality crown can fit your budget.

Just look at our own office, for instance. We happily provide flexible financing through CareCredit, a third-party financier. It’d let you pay for treatment in monthly installments suited to your needs. In other words, you could cover a crown’s cost gradually instead of all at once.

Ultimately, we at Davis, Roberts, Boeller, & Rife want to give you pretty and affordable crowns. So, then, learn more about crown financing by booking a visit to our office!

Dental Crowns FAQs

FAQ in blue font

Dental crowns in Englewood have been used for generations because of their versatility and durability. Although they have a long track record of success, it's normal to have some concerns before you're ready for your procedure. Your dentist will explain everything during your initial consultation, so you will know exactly what to expect on the road ahead. Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about dental crowns while you wait for your appointment.

Are Dental Crowns Permanent?

A dental crown is designed to provide a long-lasting solution, but it won't be a permanent fix. On average, a crown will last for about 10 years before needing to be replaced, but it's not uncommon for them to thrive for much longer with the right care. Your dentist will explain how to get the most from your investment, like brushing, flossing, and having a cleaning and checkup twice a year. It's also best to limit hard or chewy foods to prevent additional wear and tear on your restoration. Break any bad habits that can damage your crown, like chewing on ice or using your teeth in place of scissors.

Does It Hurt to Get a Dental Crown?

Your dentist in Englewood will keep your comfort as their top priority. A local numbing agent can be used to keep you comfortable while your tooth is prepared for the crown, but it isn't always necessary. You won't have any discomfort while your crown is placed; however, your tooth can be tender for a few days after the effects of any numbing medications wear off. You can manage it using an over-the-counter pain reliever and eating soft foods. In no time at all, your crown will feel like a natural part of your smile, and you may even forget that it is there.

What Materials Are Used to Make Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns can be made from many materials, but our office uses porcelain. It closely mimics enamel to provide natural-looking results. Not to mention, it is biocompatible, so there's no risk of allergic reactions. You won't have to worry about a dark line appearing near your gums, either. Although your crown will be metal free, it will be equally durable to last for many years. We will customize your restoration to match the color, size, and shape of your real teeth, so it will blend in with your smile.

Can Dental Crowns Get Cavities?

Dental crowns can't get cavities, but your underlying tooth is still vulnerable to decay. Poor oral hygiene habits can cause plaque to accumulate where the crown meets the gum line. Bacteria in the buildup can gain access to your tooth through small cracks that form in the dental cement over time. Good brushing and flossing habits will keep your mouth clean and lessen your risk of cavities. Moderate your consumption of sugary foods and drinks to keep cavity-causing bacteria at bay. Besides caring for your smile at home, don't forget to visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup.
