Tooth Crowns in Longwood

What Is a Tooth Crown?

When the tooth’s layer of enamel is penetrated by cavities or physical damage, the tooth will be destroyed if that protective layer is not replaced. This is why dentists use tooth crowns—which are artificial caps that cover the tooth and prevent further decay. A crown is custom-made to fit the patient’s tooth.

How Do I Find a Dentist Who Can Do Crowns?

All dentists will know how to perform a basic crown procedure since it is one of the most frequently used treatments in dentistry. When you need a tooth crown in Longwood, look for a dentist with experience in performing such procedures. The dentists at our practice have the education and experience to determine the best course of treatment for you. Contact us for an appointment if you would like to find out more about our range of dental services.

What Are the Common Types of Dental Crowns?

Most crowns are made of porcelain, a type of ceramic with a brilliant white color. A ceramic crown will look great when used for a front tooth crown, but patients must use caution when chewing on hard substances so that the crown does not get chipped.

Metal alloys were the original material used in crowns for teeth, and they are still popular today for some purposes. These blends of metals result in a gold crown tooth that will not rust, chip, or deform. They are typically used for crowns on the molars or other inconspicuous teeth.

Porcelain crowns and metal crowns are sometimes combined by creating a tooth cap with metal on the inside. With this method, the metal bonds to the tooth and adds durability, while the outer shell of porcelain creates a natural appearance.

How Much Are Crowns Going to Cost?

Since every tooth crown procedure is different, it’s difficult to give an estimate of the cost. The type of materials used for the dental caps will be a factor, as will the scope of the damage to the teeth. We will be able to give you a more precise estimate of the dental crown cost following a dental exam. Bear in mind that some of the cost may be paid by your dental insurance plan. Schedule a visit to our office today, and be sure to inform our staff if you have insurance.

How Are Crowns Created?

The dentist must first remove any decayed tooth matter. It will also be necessary to remove a small amount of healthy tooth material in order to create a good bonding surface for the crown. After the dentist takes an impression of the tooth and sends it to a dental laboratory, a crown will be created that fits the tooth. Because an infection could develop in even a slight gap, the fit must be perfect. The final step of the dental crown procedure is the implantation of the crown. It will be glued to the tooth using a uniquely strong dental cement.
