Tooth Crowns in Bradenton

Are you ashamed of your teeth? Do you refuse to smile because of your teeth? If so, then a dental crown may be able to restore your beautiful smile.

What Are Dental Caps and Crowns?

Dental crowns and caps are covers that a dentist places over your natural teeth that have become damaged or discolored. Similar in appearance to your natural teeth, a cap extends from the top of your tooth to your gums and matches the color and appearance of your natural teeth. Crowns or caps are typically used when a filling won’t be able to save the natural tooth. They provide protection after a root canal, and can be used to anchor a bridge in place. Call our office to get more information about the benefits of getting a tooth crown.

Where Do I Get a Tooth Cap or Crown?

All of our dentists can install dental crowns for teeth. It’s considered a routine procedure like a filling, a cleaning, or a root canal. Come in and let us help you if you need a tooth crown installed or if you need more information about the dental crown procedure.

Types of Caps and Crowns

There are two types of crowns, temporary and permanent. A temporary crown is usually constructed of plastic or stainless steel and is used as an interim device until your permanent crown is ready for installation.

Definition and Use of Ceramic Crowns

Ceramic crowns are actually ceramic bonded to a porcelain based filling, and are usually used for a front tooth crown because their color and texture is most like your natural teeth. Although slightly more brittle than a porcelain crown, a ceramic crown can last for decade if properly maintained.

Definition and Use of Porcelain Crowns

A porcelain crown is fused to metal, which provides additional strength and a better seal. This helps prevent leaking and decay, which helps ensure the longevity of your crown.

How Do I Have a Crown Placed?

If you’re having a crown or cap placed, you should plan for at least two visits to our office. If you need additional dental work, then additional visits may be required. On the initial visit, your dentist will inspect the condition of your oral health and your tooth to determine if the tooth is strong enough for a crown installation. Then, your dentist will file down the tooth and prepare it for installation of the cap. He or she will then take an impression of the tooth and this will be used to fabricate your permanent crown.

You’ll use the temporary crown until your permanent one arrives, at which time it will be installed and adjusted so that it fits its best and is comfortable.

What Does a Tooth Crown Cost?

The cost of your dental crowns will depend on several factors. The amount of extra preparatory work necessary, the condition of your oral health, the type of crown you need, and your dental insurance benefits will all factor into your dental crown cost. Call our office today to learn more about the cost of having a dental crown or gold crown tooth installed.

Proper Care and Maintenance of Crowns

Proper care and maintenance of your oral health can extend the life of your tooth cap by decades more than the initial seven-year estimate. Make sure you floss daily, brush at least twice daily, and have regular cleanings and checkups. Call our office today to schedule a cleaning and a checkup so that you can maintain excellent oral health possible.
