Dental crowns are designed to restore the beauty and function of your smile. These single-tooth restorations can strengthen a tooth after treatment from damage or decay, support an adjacent bridge, or restore a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. Dr. Miller can place natural-looking and durable dental crowns to help you and your smile gain the confidence you deserve. Contact our office today to learn more about dental crowns.
Unlike a dental filling that restores only a small area of damage, or an inlay or onlay that repairs the chewing surfaces of the teeth, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers an entire tooth. To ensure your smile retains a realistic appearance we use all-ceramic crowns for the anterior (front) teeth and place e.max® Press crowns, which consist of a ceramic shell over a strong zirconia base for the posterior (back) teeth. We may also use all-zirconia crowns for your back teeth to keep them strong enough to chew on all your favorite foods.
If you suffer from one or more of the following, you may be a candidate for dental crowns:
Have a tooth in need of extensive esthetic enhancement? A crown can cover a tooth and give it a new shape or cover intrinsic stains that do not respond to teeth whitening.
Yes, our dental crowns are designed to look natural and are difficult to differentiate from your own teeth.
With the help of a local anesthetic you shouldn’t feel any pain during the process. Once the anesthesia has worn off there may be temporary gum and tooth soreness but the discomfort is minimal and shouldn’t last very long.
With proper care and maintenance, a crown can last as long as your natural teeth!
Every crown is custom and the price depends on the complexity of the solution that is right for you. Each situation is unique and it is best to contact us so that we are able to provide you with all the information you need. On average an esthetic, well made crown will range from $1700-$2100.
Most dental carriers cover a percentage of the crown fee. Every plan is employer specific. After your initial consultation we can request a pre treatment estimate from your carrier to find out the level of coverage you have.
