Tooth Crowns in Florida

When your tooth has broken down due to tooth decay or injury, a tooth crown in Florida can help you repair your smile. Read on to learn more about the dental crown procedure.

What Solution Does a Dental Crown Provide?

A dental crown shields a decayed or fractured tooth from additional damage. The crown actually caps the tooth, so many dentists refer to crowns as dental caps. Dentists typically recommend using a tooth cap when a filling cannot repair the damaged tooth. Crowns may be placed following a root canal or implant surgery, but many people opt to receive them for cosmetic purposes. Get in touch with our office to discover whether a dental crown is right for you.

What Type of Dentist Offers Crowns?

Since a tooth crown procedure is considered a routine dental service, most general dentists can assist you if a crown is necessary. Don’t let a damaged tooth affect your chewing ability or appearance – contact us now to schedule a dental crown consultation.

How Many Types of Tooth Crowns Are There?

Our dentists provide many styles of tooth crowns to suit our patients’ needs. Call us now to find out more about the following types of dental crowns.

Ceramic Crowns

A ceramic crown produces the best natural color, which makes it an excellent choice for a front tooth crown. While ceramic crowns can wear down or become brittle when used by those with hard biting habits, they can often last for several years with proper care.

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are often selected by dentists due to their natural look, strong seal, and enhanced durability. These crowns are thicker than veneers, providing excellent protection for a damaged tooth.

Gold Dental Crowns

Gold crowns are visible when worn, but they offer excellent durability and a leak-proof seal. A gold crown tooth is created by fusing together several types of metal, and its smooth surface reduces the risk of irritating adjacent teeth.

What Should I Expect During a Tooth Crown Procedure?

Placing crowns for teeth usually takes place over two dental appointments. Those who require preliminary treatment like root canal therapy or dental implant surgery may require more than two visits.

At your first appointment, your dentist will thoroughly examine the affected tooth and decide whether a crown is the best option. Then, the dentist will file down areas of the damaged tooth, which is necessary to make space for the permanent crown. Impressions will also be taken and sent to the lab that will fabricate your new crown. In the meantime, a temporary crown made with stainless steel or plastic can be worn. Once your custom crown arrives, it will be fitted and adjusted at a second appointment.

What Will a Dental Crown Cost?

The style of dental crown chosen will largely determine your final charges. Most insurance providers and dental discount plans offer full or partial coverage for a crown procedure. Call us today if you have questions about the price of a dental crown.

How Are Dental Crowns Maintained?

Maintaining your dental crowns is similar to how you take care of your natural teeth – good oral hygiene is key. Visiting our office for routine cleanings and exams along with a dedicated home hygiene regimen will keep your crowns in great shape for several years.
