What Is a Porcelain Crown?
A dental crown is a cap that first perfectly over your natural tooth to help restore its original shape and size. There are multiple types of dental crowns, with porcelain crowns being the most popular for their natural color. Porcelain crowns are made to match your teeth’ size, shape, and color. The dental crown works to protect and strengthen the tooth.
Reasons for Dental Crowns
The most common reasons we use porcelain dental crowns include:
- Large or fractured fillings
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Decayed or damaged teeth
- The tooth has a root canal
- Cosmetic enhancements
Porcelain Crown Procedure
A dental crown procedure requires two appointments. At the first appointment, we will take impressions of your teeth to create a customized crown. We’ll place a temporary crown on your tooth until your new crown is ready. We will remove the temporary crown at the second appointment and carefully place the new crown over your tooth.
How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
Porcelain crowns are durable and will last many years with the proper care. The lifespan of a dental crown depends on the amount of wear and tear it faces and your oral hygiene practices. It’s important to avoid grinding your teeth, chewing on ice, and biting your fingernails to ensure the life of your dental crown is long.
How Much Does a Porcelain Crown Cost?
The cost of a porcelain crown depends on your dental insurance, the tooth’s location, and the complexity of the procedure. The cost of a dental crown is typically between $100 and $2,000 per tooth. We will determine the exact cost of your dental crown depending on your specific needs.
