Tooth Crowns in Philadelphia

Are you worried about how a discolored tooth affects your smile or how decay has damaged and weakened your tooth? A dental crown may be your solution.

What Function Does a Tooth Crown Serve?

A tooth crown is a protective, natural-looking cover for your tooth. It’s cemented over your existing tooth to provide strength and protection from further decay and damage. Crowns can build up a tooth that supports a dental bridge, and it works as your new tooth when you have a dental implant. Crowns, also known as dental caps, can be used to cover discolored or misshapen teeth as well. If you believe you might be a candidate for a crown, call our office today.

What Type of Dental Crowns Are There?

Crowns for teeth are either prefabricated for instant use or custom-made in a laboratory. Ready-made crowns are usually temporary, and designed to protect your tooth while your permanent crown is made.

Permanent Crowns

Metal

A gold crown tooth is a type of metal crown known for its sturdiness and fortitude. This strength makes metal a great option for teeth that need extra durability. On the downside, metal can’t be matched to your existing tooth color.

Porcelain or Ceramic

An all-porcelain or ceramic crown makes a good front tooth crown because it can be easily matched to your natural tooth color. Porcelain crowns are prone to chipping so they may not be as durable as metal.

Porcelain Fused Over Metal

This crown features natural-looking porcelain that covers a metal frame. The metal structure of this crown offers strength and provides a surface that is easily cemented to your natural tooth.

What Type of Dentist Can Give Me a Crown?

While some specialized dentists can handle crowns, so too can your general dentist. Crowns are considered a routine dental procedure, so if you think a crown can help your dental health, call our office today.

Are Dental Crowns Economical?

Yes, and your discount dental or insurance plan often covers part of the total dental crown cost. Failing to crown a damaged tooth has many health implications, so choosing to protect or replace it with a crown is a sound decision.

Does the Dental Crown Procedure Involve Many Steps?

Once your tooth is ready for a crown, you can expect to make two visit to our dental office. First, your dentist examines your tooth and files it down to make room for the tooth cap. Then, an impression is made for the lab and a temporary crown is placed on your tooth. You’ll come back to our office in a few weeks so our dentist can remove the temporary crown and replace it with the permanent crown. A few final adjustments by your dentist ensures a comfortable, functional fit.

What Type of Care and Treatment Is Appropriate for A Crown?

Treat your crowns like natural teeth by brushing and flossing twice each day. Have your teeth regularly cleaned and checked in our office, and your crown should last for many years.
