What is a dental crown?
A Dental Crown, or cap, is a restoration that is often used to restore a significantly damaged or decayed tooth. The Crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain Crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our Dentists will help you determine which type of Dental Crown is right for you.
Dental Crown FAQs
How long do dental crowns last?
Dental crowns can last an average of 8-12 years with proper care and routine cleanings from our team at Syringa Dental and Implants. If you floss daily, brush 2-3 times a day and schedule routine cleanings every 6 months there’s no reason your crown shouldn’t be with you for a good amount of time.
What are dental crowns made of?
Dental Crowns can be crafted out a number of materials—porcelain, zirconia, lithium disilicate and yes, even gold. Dr. Hazard and Dr. Loftus will review all your crown options with you after your dental exam and discuss form, function and aesthetic differences for each substrate.
How much is a dental crown?
Crown costs will vary by material, but an industry average porcelain crown ranges from $800 – $3,000 per tooth. Things like tooth location and treatment complexity can shift the cost higher or lower. The major insurance carriers do help cover the cost of crowns, so we encourage all our patients to reach out to our Insurance Coordinator prior to scheduling your crown procedure.
