What is a dental crown?
A crown (also referred to as a cap) is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth and is shaped to look as natural as possible. A crown not only strengthens a tooth, but it can dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment. Crowns and bridges have traditionally been made of porcelain fused to metal or gold. Now thanks to the development of modern all-ceramics, which are incredibly strong and natural looking, aesthetics and durability become one with the use of all porcelain crowns.
What is the procedure for a dental crown?
It takes two appointments to restore a tooth with a crown. In the first, any decay is removed from the tooth and it is shaped to accept the crown. Then, an impression is made of the tooth for use in fabricating a crown. Between the two visits, the crown is made, usually of high-strength porcelain over gold alloy or, an all ceramic material. During this time a provisional crown is worn. In the second visit this provisional is removed. Lastly, the permanent crown is adjusted as needed and then cemented in place.
What is the cost of a dental crown in Delray Beach?
Like many dental procedures, not every case is the same. Pricing varies depending on what you and your dentist have discussed. Your dentist will go over what the right choice is for you and your oral health.
