Tooth Crowns in Norcross

What are Tooth Crowns?

A tooth crown is a permanent cover for a damaged tooth or a metal implant that looks just like your other teeth. Crowns, also called dental caps because they cover the entire tooth, provide strength for weakened teeth and enhance the appearance of malformed or discolored teeth. Crowns also hold dental bridges in place. Our dentist ensures that the crown is indistinguishable from your other teeth.

Do All Dentists Offer Tooth Crowns?

General dentists will fit patients for a tooth crown in Norcross since they are the practitioners who discover weakened or discolored teeth first. Our family dentist offers crowns for teeth if you are an appropriate candidate.

Which Type of Crown is Best?

There are various types of crowns, such as the temporary crowns made of plastic or stainless steel that are dentists use to protect the tooth temporarily, until your made-to-order crown is finished. Permanent crowns come in ceramic, porcelain and gold; our dentists will discuss your options with you and help you decide on the best material for your unique situation.

Ceramic Crowns

A ceramic crown, which has a porcelain base, is ideal as a front tooth crown as it is very life-like. Ceramic crowns are appropriate when appearance is a major concern; however, they are not recommended for molars or other teeth since ceramic is more brittle than other materials and it cannot withstand constant heavy biting.

Porcelain Crowns

A porcelain crown is strong because of the underlying metal, making them an excellent choice for back teeth. Even if part of the porcelain chips off, the metal thimble-like cap will protect and reinforce the tooth underneath it.

Gold Crowns

A gold crown tooth is the strongest crown there is; they do not crack or break. For aesthetic reasons, people typically request gold crowns for back teeth only.

What is Your Dental Crown Procedure?

On your first visit, our dentist will examine your tooth to determine if it is a good, strong foundation for a tooth crown. Next, the dentist files the tooth to prepare it for a crown and makes an impression of the tooth so that the lab can make a perfectly fitting crown. You will receive a temporary cap until your crown is ready. On your second visit, the dentist takes off the temporary crown and places the permanent crown in its place.

Plan to visit our office twice, or more if you need additional work done to the tooth, such as a root canal.

What Does a Dental Crown Cost?

The cost varies depending on which material you select for the tooth cap. Call our office to see if we accept your dental insurance plan or discount dental plan.

Does a Dental Crown Require Any Special Care?

Crowns last for an average of seven years; however, faithful oral hygiene plays a major role in making crowns last. Visit our dental office for regular checkups and teeth cleanings to make the crown last as long as possible.
