Crown Information - 2 appointments needed.
DENTAL CROWNS: Also referred to as "dental caps," "tooth crowns," or "tooth caps," crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist or prosthodontist. Crowns are used most commonly to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth or cover an implant. In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, crowns can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion (bite). Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a bad bite. Crowns help prevent this from happening. Crowns cover most of the exposed portion of your tooth and decay does not affect a crown since it is made of metal and /or porcelain. However, where the natural tooth meets the crown can become decayed.
Crown prices range from $240.00 - $450.00 depending on the material selected.
