Tooth Crowns in West Hartford

Crowns for teeth hide problem teeth permanently, replacing an unsightly or damaged tooth with a porcelain or ceramic tooth that matches your other teeth. If you are interested in a permanent fix that improves tooth functionality, contact our dentist to discuss how a crown could improve your smile.

What Is a Tooth Crown’s Function?

Crowns offer a long-lasting transformation for teeth with major dental problems and provide protection for the remaining portion of the tooth. A crown is a completely natural-looking tooth cap that covers the entire surface.

Crowns also cover dental implants and are used to anchor bridges. They are as strong as natural teeth so that you can eat normally.

Can I Get a Crown at a Family Dentist Office?

The dentist will use a tooth crown to save a tooth or cover a discolored or crooked tooth. There is no need to visit a specialist; we do all of the work in our office.

What are My Options for a Crown with a Natural Appearance?

A crown is simply a tooth covering made out of porcelain, ceramic or gold. Our dentist will work with you to find the ideal material for your crown based on your unique situation. Contact us soon to schedule a consultation to discuss your unique needs.

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are stronger than dental caps made entirely of porcelain and are long lasting and aesthetically pleasing. Be sure to tell the dentist if you have any metal allergies.

Ceramic Crowns

A ceramic crown is typically used as a front tooth crown because of the material’s ability to blend with your other teeth’s natural color. It is too brittle to handle the heavy bite of molars, but it is perfect for front teeth.

Gold Crowns

Our dentist may suggest a gold crown tooth procedure for one of your molars, as gold is stronger than ceramic or porcelain. Dentists often recommend a gold crown for patients whose teeth exhibit heavy wear.

How Much Should I Expect to Pay for a Crown?

We realize that your budget plays a role in your decision. The dental crown cost will vary depending on why you need a crown and which material you select for your crown. Our dental staff will work with your dental insurance or discount plan to help you determine the final out-of-pocket cost.

Is Getting a Tooth Crown in West Hartford a Lengthy Procedure?

The dental crown procedure typically requires two visits and involves our dentist removing the decayed, discolored or misshapen outer surface of the tooth and then placing a temporary cap on the remaining portion of the tooth.
Then, a dental laboratory makes a permanent crown that looks exactly like your other teeth, which the dentist fits onto your tooth.

How Do I Make My Crown Last as Long as Possible?

Brush and floss regularly and your tooth crown should last for many years. Additionally, make regular appointments for routine cleanings and exams. Schedule a visit with one of our experienced dentists today.
