Tooth Crowns in Baltimore

A tooth crown provides a fast, affordable solution for many dental concerns and conditions. Find out how a crown can help you and your smile.

What Does a Dental Crown Do?

A dental crown is a covering for an unhealthy tooth or a dental implant. Crowns are casually called caps because they resemble tiny caps that provide a protective or aesthetic cover. Crowns are virtually undetectable because they are crafted to look just like your real teeth.

A tooth crown is used to treat a number of dental concerns, including broken teeth, tooth cracks, injured teeth, severe staining, and poorly-shaped teeth. A crown is also helpful to secure a dental bridge and as a protective covering for a tooth that has undergone a root canal.

If you have a dental concern that may benefit from a crown, please call our dental office to make a convenient appointment.

Do You Need to See a Specialist for a Crown?

With crowns considered a routine dental procedure, practically every dentist offers them today, including the dentists at our conveniently-located office.

What Are the Basic Varieties of a Crown?

Caps are either permanent or temporary. Permanent crowns are custom-made to match the color and shape of your teeth in a special dental lab and are worn for many years. Temporary caps are pre-formed and are used as dental protection for a few weeks while awaiting your permanent crown.

What Are the Benefits of Getting Ceramic Crowns?

One advantage of a ceramic crown is that its color can be made to blend more smoothly with your natural teeth than both traditional gold crown tooth caps and more modern porcelain caps. As a result, ceramic crowns are frequently used by our dentists as a front tooth crown. In addition, ceramic crowns can survive extensive wear and tear. The disadvantages include the need for a small amount of tooth structure loss for placement and the crown’s tendency to be more brittle than other cap materials.

Are There Any Advantages to Porcelain Crowns?

As with ceramic crowns, there are both benefits and downsides to porcelain dental caps. Positive traits include great biting strength and endurance due to their metal core. And, the combination of porcelain and metal helps you avoid hidden decay and dangerous leaks. Unfortunately, the primary negative aspect to porcelain is that placement demands having a moderate degree of your existing tooth structure removed.

What Happens During the Dental Crown Procedure?

The process is very simple and is usually completed in just two appointments at our practice. The only time the procedure requires more visits is if you need preparatory dental work. But, for most people, the first step is a complete dental exam to give our dentist a chance to see if a crown can be supported by your damaged tooth.

If you’re eligible for a tooth cap, your dentist will get to work by smoothing out your damaged tooth and making a dental impression for permanent crown creation at our dental lab. Then, a temporary crown is placed over the smoothed-out tooth that gets worn for a few weeks as you wait for your permanent cap. As soon as it’s ready, your dentist will position the crown on your tooth for the ideal fit, function, and comfort.

What Do Crowns for Teeth Cost?

While the price of a crown hinges on the variety of cap you want, many discount dental plans and dental insurance providers will contribute to the cost in order to help decrease your financial burden. Please call us if you would like additional details about the dental crown cost.

Do Crowns Require Time-Consuming Maintenance?

Not at all. See, a crown is made to last for close to a decade, but you can extend its life to nearly 40 years if you simply practice good oral hygiene. All that this entails is brushing your teeth a minimum of twice daily, flossing them once daily, and visiting our office every six months for cleanings and full exams.

To set up an appointment and keep your smile at its best, call our practice today.
