Tooth Restoration at Its Finest

A dental crown serves as a protective “cap” that covers and restores a tooth that has suffered from breakage, root canal treatment, staining, decay, or irregular shape. Each dental crown is meticulously crafted and tailored to seamlessly blend with the colour and shape of your existing teeth. With a lifespan of over 15 years, dental crowns can also be utilized to support dental bridges, crown dental implants, or for cosmetic enhancements and aesthetic improvements.

What’s The Process Of Getting A Crown?

Typically, a dental crown procedure is completed in two dental office visits and is carried out by a dentist.

Here is how we do it:

Tooth Examination and Preparation

Like any other dental procedure, the process begins with a thorough dental examination, during which the dentist will assess and clean your teeth to ensure they are ready for a precise fit. In cases where a tooth is fractured or extensively affected by decay, the damaged portions will be carefully removed, allowing the dental crown to effectively shield the tooth from additional decay.

Shaping the Crown

Following that, utilizing dental putty, an impression of your teeth will be taken to create porcelain crowns that perfectly match your smile. During this stage, a temporary dental crown will be fitted to safeguard your teeth until your next visit. In the case of a missing tooth that requires a dental implant, an impression of the implant and neighbouring teeth will be obtained. This impression will be utilized by our laboratory to fabricate a personalized crown tailored specifically to you.

Securing the Crown

During your second appointment, the temporary crown will be removed and replaced with a permanent crown. The permanent crown will be securely fastened in place using resilient dental cement or an inconspicuous screw. To finalize the procedure, the crown will be carefully polished, and any required adjustments will be made to ensure your utmost comfort and stability.

The Cost Of A Dental Crown In Aurora

The out-of-pocket expenses for a dental crown can vary significantly from one patient to another. With a standard insurance plan, the average cost for a single crown ranges from $200 to $600 or more. For individuals without insurance coverage, a reasonable estimate for a crown would fall between $800 to $1200 and beyond. While many people consider a dental crown to be a straightforward choice in restoring the appearance and function of their mouth, the cost factor may still require careful consideration.

So, what do we consider to determine the cost of a dental crown?
  • The type of crown selected and the materials utilized.
  • The location and complexity of the procedure.
  • The quantity of crowns needed.
  • Integration of the crown with other dental appliances such as bridges.
  • The specific supplies and equipment required for your treatment.

Please keep in mind that it is not possible for a dental practice to provide a precise quote over the phone. Your dental needs are as individual as your smile. It is crucial to consult with a dentist and undergo an oral examination to explore all your treatment possibilities and receive an accurate quote. If you have dental insurance, we are pleased to offer you a quote that you can submit to your insurance provider, enabling you to determine your out-of-pocket expenses before making a final decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental crowns serve two vital functions: restoring tooth function, enabling painless chewing, and blending seamlessly with your natural teeth, often making them indistinguishable from the rest.

The necessity of a crown following a root canal procedure largely depends on the tooth’s position in the mouth. Teeth located towards the rear, such as molars and premolars, play a significant role in chewing and often require crowns for added strength and support. Conversely, incisors or canines, which are not extensively involved in chewing, may not always require crowns.

A notable distinction between a crown and a filling is their durability, especially when it comes to teeth with extensive biting surfaces. Fillings on the chewing surfaces of molars can chip or become dislodged due to repeated pressure from chewing or habitual clenching. On the other hand, a crown, serving as a continuous and unbroken surface from the gumline to gumline, is specifically designed to withstand significantly greater force over an extended period.

A dental post is a medical-grade post that is not the same as a dental implant (which is surgically placed in the jawbone). It is precisely what it sounds like—a post that can be cemented into a prepared root canal to provide additional support to the foundation and core of a dental crown. Dental posts are utilized when there is insufficient healthy tooth structure remaining to securely hold a crown in place.

Maintaining a dental crown is similar to caring for a natural tooth. It is crucial to practice regular brushing and flossing to ensure the cleanliness and health of both the dental crown and the surrounding gums. Additionally, scheduling routine cleanings and checkups with your dentist is essential for maintaining optimal oral health.

The process of getting a crown can resemble getting a filling, depending on the condition of your tooth. We prioritize your comfort by ensuring the area is thoroughly numbed, and we use local anesthesia as needed during the tooth preparation to minimize any discomfort. It is normal to experience mild sensitivity or soreness in the gum area surrounding the tooth for a short period after the procedure. If you have any dental anxiety, please inform us so we can address your concerns and create a comfortable experience for you.

Typically, dental crowns have a lifespan of approximately 15 years. However, with proper maintenance, they can extend their longevity to an impressive 25-30 years.
