Tooth Crowns in Palm Coast

If you have damaged or misshapen teeth, you may be a candidate for a dental crown. This oral appliance can improve your appearance and dental health.

What Is a Tooth Crown?

Resembling a natural tooth, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that entirely covers a damaged tooth or implant, all the way down to the gum line. These fixed prosthetic devices are permanently cemented to existing implants or teeth that need crowns. They are used to save broken or damaged teeth when a filling alone is insufficient. A tooth crown has the shape and color of a patient’s teeth, so it is difficult to detect the difference. Dentists generally install a cap after a root canal to help protect the tooth.

Which Dentists Offer Crowns?

Selecting the right dentist for crowns does not have to be confusing. An experienced family or general dentist can customize the appliance, which is considered a routine procedure like cleanings, fillings and root canals. Visit us for a consultation if you have teeth that need crowns.

Types of Dental Crowns

Temporary crowns for teeth are generally pre-fabricated from stainless steel or plastic. They are used to cover your tooth until the made-to-order permanent tooth cap is ready. Permanent crowns can be produced from a variety of materials.

Fabricated from a porcelain-based material, a ceramic crown has the ability to blend easily with your natural tooth color, making it popular for use as a front tooth crown. Also known as a porcelain crown, these dental caps are very resistant to wear.

Long considered the gold standard, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are a porcelain veneer attached to a metal support structure. Providing a bond stronger than ceramic alone, these tooth crowns offer more strength and a better seal that prevents future tooth decay.

Dental Crown Procedure

The procedure to get a crown typically requires two office visits. More visits may be needed if extra prep work is required, such as a root canal. Your damaged tooth will be evaluated to determine if it can support a crown. After an impression is made of your teeth, a temporary crown will be put in place. Once the permanent crown has been made, our dentist will schedule an appointment for any adjustments required to ensure a comfortable, accurate fit.

Dental Crown Cost

How much dental crowns cost depends upon the type of caps that you choose, as well as the steps involved during the procedure. Porcelain crowns are generally more expensive than a gold crown tooth. Dental insurance and discount plans typically cover a portion of the expense. Contact our office for more information about getting a tooth crown in Palm Coast.

Caring for Dental Crowns

While crowns will last approximately seven years, they can last up to 40 years with proper care and dental hygiene that includes brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. It is also important to get regular dental checkups and cleanings. Schedule an appointment today with one of our dentists to help maintain your oral health.
