Tooth Crowns in Atlanta

When you have damaged your teeth in some way, it can be very embarrassing and painful. But a tooth crown can provide you with the dental solution you need.

When Do You Need a Tooth Crown?

Tooth crowns fit over a natural tooth or a dental implant to enhance a tooth’s appearance and protect it from dental damage. They are often referred to as dental caps because they look like little caps. Our dentists recommend crowns for a number of dental issues that are beyond the repair of a filling, including:

  • Broken teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Severely decayed teeth
  • As protection after root canals
  • To firmly hold dental bridges
  • To Improve the look of discolored, dull, or badly-shaped teeth
  • Since our dentists can match the color and size of the crown to your existing teeth, your crowns will go virtually undetected by people that see your smile.

Do You Need to See a Dental Specialist for a Crown?

No, nearly all dentists offer these protective caps. In fact, the crown procedure has become almost as common as dental cleanings and fillings. Please give our office a call if you feel that you may need a dental crown.

Are There Different Options for Tooth Crowns?

Yes, the two main types are customized permanent crowns and pre-made temporary crowns. The permanent crowns are specially manufactured in a dental laboratory and are the caps you wear for many years. The temporary crowns are provided as a protective dental cover while your dentist crafts the permanent cap, which is available in ceramic or porcelain.

Are Ceramic Crowns Right for You?

Usually, a ceramic crown is used as a front tooth crown because it offers a more natural-looking result than either a porcelain or gold crown tooth cap. Ceramic crowns have an interior made mostly of porcelain, so while they are strong enough to withstand daily wear, they tend to be more brittle underneath a forceful bite and more prone to breakage than other crown materials. Also, the placement of ceramic caps requires the loss of a small amount of your natural dental structure.

Will Porcelain Crowns Meet Your Needs?

These caps have a stronger dental bond and greater durability than ceramic crowns because they are made out of porcelain over metal. The combination of these two materials ensures greater overall strength and protection from decay and leaks. Yet, be aware that porcelain caps require the loss of a medium amount of tooth structure for proper fit.

Does It Take a Lot of Time to Get Crowns for Teeth?

Absolutely not. Most of the time, only two dental appointments are involved in the dental crown procedure. Yet, more appointments may be needed if you need preliminary dental work. Typically, the procedure begins with a dental exam so our dentist can determine if you’re eligible for a crown. If you are, you will have your damaged tooth scraped and have an impression taken to allow our lab to produce your permanent crown. In the meantime, you will be sent home with a temporary cap that will be worn for a few weeks. After that time, you come back in for your second appointment and have your permanent crown placed and comfortably adjusted by one of our dentists.

Are You Concerned about the Cost of a Crown?

The price of a tooth cap varies depending on the sort of crown you would like. Few people realize that a portion of the dental crown cost may be covered by dental insurance or even by discount dental plans. If you have any questions, call our practice and speak to our knowledgeable staff.

What Kind of Care Is Required for Tooth Crowns?

Believe it or not, simply practicing good oral hygiene at home and seeing your dentist regularly can make your crowns last for up to 40 years. At home, you need to brush your teeth two times a day or more, as well as floss every day. You also need to schedule twice yearly visits at our office for professional checkups and cleanings.
