Dental Crown Procedure

The dental crown process varies from patient to patient. During your first visit, our team will thoroughly assess your tooth and the surrounding area to determine what preparation will be needed. If the decay has progressed too far, it’s possible you may need a root canal before a crown can be placed. If not, your next visit will consist of shaping your tooth for the crown, taking impressions to send to our off-site lab, and placing a temporary crown while your custom crown is being made. Once your permanent crown arrives, we’ll permanently cement it to your natural tooth and you’ll be set for years to come!

 

Dental Crown FAQs

How long do dental crowns last?

With proper care, you can make your dental crown last up to fifteen years or longer. The key to longevity is practicing a good dental hygiene routine. Treat your dental crown as carefully as you would your natural tooth by brushing at least twice per day, flossing daily, and incorporating an alcohol-free, fluoride-based mouthwash into your routine.

 

Do dental crowns hurt?

Our team will use a local anesthetic during your dental crown prep and placement, so the most you should feel is a bit of pressure while we work. If necessary, you may take over-the-counter pain relievers to alleviate any mild discomfort after treatment. If you notice ongoing sensitivity or pain after treatment, please contact our team immediately.

 

How much does a dental crown cost?

The cost of your dental crown depends on the material it’s made of and the amount of preparation needed before it can be placed. With the location of your dental crown and your budget in mind, we’ll recommend the best treatment plan to fit your needs. If you’re concerned about paying for treatment, we’re in network with many dental insurance providers, and we accept CareCredit® patient financing for the times when you need extra assistance.
