Dental Crowns

Are Dental Crowns right for me?

Dental crowns may be recommended to treat a wide range of restorative and cosmetic dental concerns. A dental crown covers the entire tooth and is permanently bonded into place. The crown provides strength, aesthetics and lasting durable function.

Dental crowns are stain and decay resistant and can last for many years. These restorations can be colour-matched to blend seamlessly with your smile for beautiful results.

Dental Crowns Can Fix:

  • Damaged, chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Reinforce a tooth with a root canal
  • Strengthen anchor teeth for dental bridge

We may recommend a dental crown to help restore your dental health or to address cosmetic concerns. They are highly durable dental restorations that look and function like natural teeth. They can be made of many different materials such as metal, ceramic, porcelain with metal, zirconia or a combination of porcelain and zirconia.

The Dental Crown Procedure

Through a comprehensive oral health exam, your dentist will determine if a dental crown is an appropriate treatment to restore your smile. Your dental crown will be designed using digital imaging of your teeth and gums. The crown can be molded to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. Here are the general steps we take to place a crown:

  1. Our dental team will first Take x-rays of your teeth. This will help us determine if you need a crown, or a different procedure to save your tooth.
  2. If we determine that you are a good candidate for the procedure, Dr. Barakat will begin by numbing the area around the infected tooth.
  3. Once numb, he will begin to gently file away part of your tooth to make room for the restoration.
  4. After the tooth has been fully prepped, we will take impressions of the tooth. This is done to create a perfect fitting, custom dental crown.
  5. After the crown has been created, Dr. Barakat will cement the crown on your tooth.

Dental Crown FAQs

The lifespan of a dental crown depends on various factors, including the material used, oral hygiene practices, and individual habits. On average, dental crowns can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years or more with proper care. Regular dental check-ups and maintaining good oral hygiene can help extend the longevity of dental crowns.

Getting a dental crown is typically not painful, as it is performed under local anesthesia to ensure comfort. However, some patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, which usually subsides within a few days. Your dentist will provide instructions for managing any post-procedure discomfort effectively.

Unlike natural teeth, dental crowns cannot be whitened with traditional teeth whitening methods. However, if your dental crown becomes discolored or stained over time, your dentist may recommend replacing it or applying a new layer of dental porcelain to restore its appearance. It's essential to discuss your options with your dentist to determine the most suitable solution for your specific needs.

The cost of dental crowns can vary depending on factors such as the material used, the complexity of the procedure, and your location. Generally, dental crowns range in price from a few hundred to several thousand dollars per tooth. Dental insurance may cover a portion of the cost of dental crowns, so check with your insurance provider and discuss payment options with your dentist.

Yes, dental crowns can be replaced if they become damaged or worn out or if changes in your oral health necessitate their replacement. Your dentist will evaluate the condition of your existing crown and recommend whether it needs to be repaired or replaced. In some cases, a new crown may be necessary to ensure the continued health and functionality of the affected tooth. It's essential to promptly address any concerns or issues with your dental crown to maintain optimal oral health.
