Tooth Crowns in Pikesville

What Is a Dental Crown?

When tooth enamel is damaged, the entire structure of the tooth becomes vulnerable. To protect the tooth, dentists use a crown that is fitted to the tooth’s shape. Some dental caps only cover part of the chewing surface; others extend over the entire visible portion of the tooth. Dental crowns are used when tooth decay has destroyed the enamel or the enamel has been chipped or fractured in an injury. On occasion, tooth crowns are used as an aesthetic improvement for irregularly shaped teeth.

Where Can I Find a Dentist Who Does Crowns?

Any dentist should be able to insert a tooth cap; it is a standard treatment that is very common in the dental profession. Our dentists have considerable education and experience, and they have successfully provided a tooth crown in Pikesville to many patients over the years. Feel free to contact us for more information about the dental procedures that we offer.

What Are Some Materials That Dentists Use for Crowns?

Gold crowns offer excellent strength and longevity. The gold crown tooth material actually includes several other metals that improve the durability of the cap. Gold crowns can also be inserted with minimal grinding away of tooth material. However, some patients may not want gold for a front tooth crown.

For those who prefer a more natural look, there are porcelain crowns, which are fused to metal. This material closely resembles tooth enamel, and it will be almost impossible to distinguish your crowns from normal teeth. A ceramic crown is also a good option for those who are allergic to certain compounds in metal crowns. Contact our office to schedule an appointment, and a dentist will be able to tell you what materials can be used for your tooth crown.

What Can I Expect to Pay for a Dental Crown?

The price of your dental crown procedure will largely depend on how much of your tooth is being crowned. For example, a simple tooth crown that only covers the chewing surface of the tooth will be much cheaper than the insertion of two crowns that are supporting a dental bridge. Different materials used in the procedure will affect the dental crown cost as well. Another factor is your dental insurance coverage. Come to our office for an appointment to learn more about what your insurance will contribute towards your tooth caps.

How Are Dental Crowns Made and Inserted?

Crowns for teeth are customized for every patient. This is achieved by taking an impression of the teeth and sending it to a dental laboratory. The specialists will use this impression to produce the crown.
The procedure takes place over two visits. On the first visit, the dentist will prepare the tooth for the crown by removing some enamel to create a margin, and then a temporary protective crown will be inserted. After the permanent crown is ready, the patient will come for a second visit, and the dentist will cement the crown to the tooth.
