Dental crowns: What Are They, Benefits and Cost

Dental crowns are caps placed on top of damaged teeth. Crowns are used to protect, cover and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve the problem. Dental crowns can be made out of metals, porcelain, resin and ceramics. They typically don’t require special care over time other than regular good oral hygiene.

Restore the shape and function of your smile.

Dental crowns are a very popular treatment for restoring the shape, aesthetics and function of a smile. A crown is a custom-made, tooth-shaped “cap” that is permanently placed over your natural tooth.

Your teeth may weaken over time, and your dentist may recommend crowns for many reasons. It can be used to rebuild and strengthen a tooth with a large filling, cap a tooth that’s badly shaped, or cover a dental implant. Crowns are also often used in natural-looking smile makeovers.

Why would you need a dental crown?

  • Protect a tooth weakened by decay or cracks
  • Restore a severely worn, broken or failing filling
  • Rebuild a broken or heavily damaged tooth
  • Improve aesthetics of severely discolored and worn-down teeth
  • Cover and strengthen a tooth after a root canal treatment
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cap a dental implant

What are onlays and 3/4 crowns?

There are many types of crowns that can be used on your teeth. Onlays and 3/4 crowns are types of dental crowns that don’t cover as much of your underlying tooth as traditional dental crowns. A traditional crown will cover your entire tooth. Onlays and 3/4 crowns may be appropriate when you still have a solid tooth structure. It’s considered a more conservative approach compared to full coverage of your crown. In this procedure, your dentist removes the affected area and performs a reshaping of the tooth to receive the crown.

We provide the following types of dental crowns:

  • Ceramic or porcelain crowns (including Emax and Zirconia crowns)
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns
  • Metal crowns
  • Stainless steel crowns

Same Day Crowns

Also known as a single appointment crown, a same day dental crown uses CEREC technology, which allows us to custom-craft your ceramic crown within a few hours.

Cosmetic Inlays and Onlays

Also called partial crowns, inlays and onlays are placed over an existing tooth to rebuild its shape and prevent further damage and decay. They are made out of very strong crown material and are made to match the color of your teeth.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge consists of two or more crowns anchored on either side of a gap in the mouth, that is used to replace a missing tooth or several teeth. They are strong and reliable and are made to look and feel just like your natural teeth.
