A crown may be needed or wanted in a variety of situations. They can be used to protect a decaying tooth to keep it from breaking or they can hold together an already cracked tooth. Crowns can also cover a worn-down or loose tooth. They can be utilized to support a tooth with a large cavity that cannot hold a normal filling, hold a dental bridge in place, or hide misshapen or discolored teeth. Crowns can be cemented to the tooth or attached to a dental implant. The material of the crown is chosen based on the location of the tooth. Metal or porcelain fused to metal (PFM) are usually stronger so they are better for the less visible molars and pre-molars. Porcelain or ceramic crowns are often selected for the front teeth and custom made to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. During your consultation, we will explain your options and help you select the best crown for your budget and needs.
What To Expect
At your consultation, we will take impressions of your teeth so the crown can be custom made. If needed, a temporary crown can be placed over your tooth while your custom crown is being made. Once your custom crown is ready, the area to be treated will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Stronger sedation options may be available to soothe any fears or anxieties. Once you are ready, we will prepare the tooth by removing any decay, then file down the tooth to make room for the crown. The crown will be cemented onto the tooth or attached to the dental implant. Once set, we will adjust the fit so your bite is correct.
If only local anesthesia is used, you should be able to leave once your crown is placed and continue your daily activities. A member of our team will teach you the best way to care for your dental crown, including foods to avoid and the best way to keep it clean. During your yearly examinations at SEDA Dental, we will assess your crown and adjust the fit for comfort. We will tell you when the crown needs to be replaced, but with proper care, it should last for many years. If you notice any trouble with your crown (it becomes loose or falls out), contact our office immediately. Do not try to fix it or put it back in yourself since this can lead to a bad fit or infection.
Depending on your insurance coverage, a portion of the cost of your crown may be covered. After contacting your insurance carrier, our office can estimate your remaining expenses. During your consultation, we can help you select the best material for your crown that fits your budget. We will also talk about payment options, including medical financing to make your treatment more affordable.
