Tooth Crowns in Connecticut

If you are considering getting a cosmetic or restorative front tooth crown, our dentist will explain your options and help you decide if a crown is the best option. Also called a dental cap, a crown literally caps the tooth, so no part of the original tooth is visible.

In What Types of Situations Does a Dentist Recommend a Tooth Crown?

Crowns can fortify a tooth to secure a bridge or they can strengthen a cracked tooth. Crowns for teeth also provide a cosmetic benefit for permanently discolored teeth. With misshapen teeth, a crown offers both an aesthetic benefit as well as correcting the bite. In addition, dentists will recommend a crown after a root canal to protect the remainder of the tooth.

Do General Dentists Usually Offer Crowns?

Yes, they are common procedures in most dental practices. Visit our office today if you believe that a crown would improve your smile.

What Types of Permanent Crown Materials Are Available?

Common tooth crown materials include porcelain, ceramic and gold. Certain materials look better on a front crown, while others are more suitable for molars. Our dentist will suggest the options that will be the most beneficial in your situation.

Porcelain Crowns

A porcelain crown has a metal base for strength so that they are appropriate for any area of the mouth. With porcelain, you will have a reliable tooth-colored restoration that should last for many years.

Ceramic Crowns

A ceramic crown is a metal-free option that mimics the look of your other teeth; it will not stand out. In fact, no one will know that you have a crown.

Gold Crowns

A gold crown tooth stands out; hence, gold crowns look best on molars. Gold is more durable than other materials; it resists wear and fracturing. A gold crown will typically last longer than crowns made from other materials

Is a Crown an Affordable Option?

Dental insurance or a discount dental plan may cover part of the cost. It is difficult to judge the dental crown cost until our dentist examines your tooth and determines if you will need any extra work before preparing the tooth for a tooth cap. A root canal or other procedure will add to the cost.

What Are the Steps of a Dental Crown Procedure?

Getting fitted for a tooth crown in Connecticut requires at least two office visits. Initially, the dentist will make an impression of your teeth to ensure that the tooth crown appears natural. Next, the dentist will place a temporary crown over the tooth until the permanent crown comes back from the dental lab. You will receive the permanent crown on your second visit.

Should I Treat a Permanent Crown Like Any Other Tooth?

Dental caps are no different from any other tooth. Maintain good dental hygiene, paying special attention to the area where the crown meets the gumline. Visit our office for regular cleanings and you should not have any problems with your capped tooth.
