Seamless Perfection in Tooth Restoration
A dental crown serves as a protective “cap” positioned over a tooth that has experienced breakage, undergone root canal treatment, exhibited staining, suffered decay, or displayed irregular shape. Meticulously designed and uniquely tailored, these dental crowns seamlessly harmonize with the colour and shape of your original teeth, boasting a potential lifespan exceeding 15 years. At times, crowns are employed to support dental bridges, crown dental implants, or fulfill specific cosmetic enhancements or aesthetic desires.
What’s The Process Of Getting A Crown?
Typically, the process of getting a dental crown necessitates two trips to the dental office and is carried out by a dentist.
Examining and preparing the tooth
Similar to all dental procedures, the process commences with a dental examination. During this assessment, the dentist will examine and cleanse your teeth, ensuring they are ready for a seamless placement. Should the tooth be fractured or significantly compromised by decay, the affected portions will be removed, facilitating the dental crown’s role in safeguarding the tooth from additional decay.

Cost Of Dental Crowns
The cost of a dental crown can vary a lot depending on your situation. If you have insurance, a crown usually costs around $200 to $600 or more. Without insurance, it’s more like $800 to $1200 or even higher. Most people think getting a dental crown is a good idea to make their mouth look and feel better, but the cost might make you think twice.
So, what makes the cost change?
- The kind of crown and what it’s made of.
- How complicated and where the work is done in your mouth.
- If you need more than one crown.
- If the crown is combined with other dental things like bridges.
- The special stuff and tools needed for your treatment.
Remember, it’s hard for a dentist to tell you the exact cost over the phone. Everyone’s situation is different. To really know your options and how much it will cost, you need to talk to a dentist and have them check your mouth. If you have dental insurance, we can give you a quote to show them. This way, you can find out how much you’ll need to pay before you decide.
