Overview

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Redlands, CA dentist, Dr. Steve Tatevossian, uses advanced technology to create dental crows with precision and accuracy, so they fit the patient's tooth, look natural, and last for years.

Common reasons for dental crowns include:

  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Cosmetic enhancement
  • Decayed teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • Large fillings
  • Tooth has had a root canal

Treatment

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown, which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory. To place a dental crown, the tooth must first be prepared by removing any existing decay, old fillings, and a small amount of enamel. Using 3-D imaging, we will create a digital representation of the tooth to help prepare the crown. In the first appointment, our patient will leave with a temporary crown, and generally returns within 10 – 14 days to receive their permanent crown.

PRICING

The cost of crowns will vary depending on the severity of damage to the teeth and the amount of repair needed. Our office will check with the patient’s insurance provider prior to treatment to inquire how much of the cost of this procedure is covered.

Crown FAQs

Best Candidates for Crowns?

A dentist may recommend a crown for treatment in the following situations: to cover a severely cracked or damaged tooth, to restore a fractured tooth, to cover a dental implant, to replace a large filling when there isn’t enough natural tooth remaining, to cover a misshapen or discolored tooth, to cover a tooth after a root canal, to protect a weak or fractured tooth, and to attach a bridge.

How Long Do Crowns Last?

Dental crowns typically last 15 - 20 years before they become damaged or need to be replaced. It is important that the patient maintain a healthy dental regimen to extend the life of crowns. 

Dental Crown Benefits?

Dental crowns help to alleviate pain as well as cracks, chips, and strains on the teeth. For many patients, dental crowns give them a boost of confidence once they see their restored smile. Today, most dental crowns are composed of porcelain or ceramic, which maintains a natural look and texture, matching the patient’s smile.
