Tooth Crowns in College Park

Do you have damaged or unsightly teeth? You could benefit from dental crowns.

What Is a Crown for Teeth?

Crowns are tooth-shaped dental appliances that cover over dental implants or your natural teeth, reaching the gum line around the bottom of your teeth. You might also hear them called, “dental caps.”

They prevent the dentist from having to remove your teeth because of breakage or other damage from cavities. Along with holding together cracked teeth, crowns can protect the inside of your teeth after root canals. They also make your teeth look better if you have discoloration.

Our dentists match each tooth crown to the color and shape of your other teeth. This prevents other people from noticing that you have replacement teeth.

Which Kind of Dentist Fits People for Crowns?

It can be confusing to select a dental professional to fit you for a tooth crown since there are numerous dental specialties. However, it’s a routine process, just like getting cavity fillings or root canals. Make an appointment with our general dentist office to get a crown.

What Dental Crown Types Are There?

A laboratory makes either ready-made or made-to-order teeth crowns. Our dentists might also call ready-made crowns temporary or prefabricated crowns. The lab uses plastic or stainless steel to make them, and we use them to cover your teeth until permanent ones are made for you. For your permanent solution, we like to use ceramic and porcelain to avoid the attention that a gold crown tooth attracts.

Ceramic Crowns

A ceramic crown has the best composition for a front tooth crown because it’s easy to match to the color of your other teeth. Although it’s more brittle than porcelain when exposed to a heavy bite, it has a porcelain-based filling and is resistant to everyday wear.

Porcelain Fused to Metal

Porcelain crowns have a metal structure underneath the porcelain. Compared to ceramic, the composition gives them a stronger bond and seal that prevents recurrent decay and leakage between the tooth and crown.

What Is the Crown-Fitting Procedure?

Being fitted for a crown usually requires that you visit our dental office in College Park twice. However, you might need more visits if, for instance, you need a root canal or other procedure to prep the tooth.

Our dentists begin the dental crown procedure with an examination to ensure that the affected tooth can support a tooth cap. Next, they’ll file down the tooth and make a mold for the lab to create your crown. In the meantime, you’ll wear a temporary cap to protect your tooth. For your second visit, our dentists will fit your crown, making adjustments as necessary so that it’s comfortable and secure.

How Expensive Are Dental Crowns?

Your dental crown cost will vary from others depending on the type of crown that you need. Dental discount plans and insurance policies usually cover at least some of the expense. Ask us for more information.

Are There Special Guidelines to Care for Dental Crowns?

The average life of crowns for teeth is seven years, but they can last much longer with proper care. This requires proper oral hygiene such as flossing at least once a day and brushing at least twice a day. Getting regular cleanings and checkups is also important.
