Here at Pro Dental Dallas, we make dental crowns for our patients. We have board-certified prosthodontists that specialize in crowns, bridges, implants, dentures, and more. They are able to make a crown that looks like your natural teeth.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Crowns are a type of dental restoration that fully encompasses the tooth, starting at the gums. A temporary crown or a permanent crown can be needed for a variety of reasons. Once the crown procedure is completed, in most cases, the tooth will be stronger and look better. The dental crown can also improve the function and health of the tooth. Crowns can be made from a number of materials, including yellow gold, white gold, zirconia, zirconia with porcelain overlay, metal with porcelain overlay, and 100% porcelain.
Crowns Are Custom Made
Crowns are made by removing some of the tooth structure to allow room for the crown. The dental crown is then fabricated to replace the missing tooth structure, strengthen the tooth, and protect it from future damage. Crowns are also capable of fixing tooth rotations. A rotated tooth can be restored to a straight position with the use of a crown. Each dental crown in Dallas, Texas, is custom made to fit exactly on its respective tooth.
Commonly Asked Questions About Dental Crowns
We are happy to help our patients in any way we can. That’s why our dentists sit down with you for as long as needed to answer all of your questions. Here are some common questions we receive about dental crowns.
What is the Average Cost for Crowns?
The average dental crown cost can range anywhere from $1,200-$1,600 in the DFW area depending on the type of crown you get. However, if additional treatments are needed to support the crown, then the full treatment plan can be more. A full examination would be required to receive an accurate dollar figure for the work. Also, it is important to note that many dental insurance companies pay for a portion of dental crowns. You’ll want to check with your insurance company for your plan benefits.
Is it Worth Getting a Tooth Crown?
If you have a cracked or damaged tooth that can support a crown, then yes, it is worth it to have the procedure done. Crowns are designed to protect the tooth underneath from further damage. We can even put together a treatment plan to fix your front teeth, which requires a specialist.
Do Teeth Rot Under Crowns?
A tooth can rot underneath a crown if the crown starts leaking. Here at Pro Dental, we fit the prosthetic to your tooth to minimize the risk of leaking. Proper dental care is important to keep your natural teeth healthy and see potential oral health concerns.
How is a Tooth Crown Fitted?
Before a crown can be placed on a tooth, it has to be prepared for it. Our prosthodontists will grind down the natural tooth so that the crown can be adhered to it. In our office, we use a CEREC machine to scan the remaining tooth structure and it will design the crown to the specifics needed to fit. They will make further adjustments as needed for it to fit and feel comfortable.
