Dental crowns are restorative “caps” or coverings placed over a weakened, decayed, or damaged tooth for enhanced aesthetic and structural support. Each crown is custom-crafted to fit comfortably in your mouth and blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. They can be used to hold a dental bridge in place, cover a dental implant, support a tooth after a root canal, or simply protect fractured enamel. While the dental crown procedure has traditionally involved a waiting period of one or more weeks to allow fabrication of the crown at a dental laboratory, our practice employs cutting-edge technology that can render your custom-designed crown on the same day of your visit! This can save you time for an enhanced smile achieved quickly and conveniently.
At Center for Smiles, our dental crowns are manufactured with either all-ceramic porcelain, composite, or lithium disilicate material of the highest quality. These crowns offer exceptional strength and durability, as well as an extremely natural-looking appearance that closely resembles tooth enamel. Each metal-free crown is tinted to match your natural tooth color for a state-of-the-art restoration unmatched in both beauty and resilience.
Same day crowns can be the ideal solution for patients undergoing a root canal procedure or want to restore damaged teeth. We place dental crowns for both functional and aesthetic reasons. One of the biggest problems we see when patients come in to have a crown replaced is that they had received a crown manufactured in China or other countries so the dentist could save on cost. We take extra steps to ensure all of our restorations are composed of only the highest-quality materials and make everything in-house.
Benefits of our dental crowns include:
Dental crowns and porcelain veneers are two very common dentistry treatments that can enhance your smile in distinctive ways. While crowns are utilized when a tooth is in poor health or requires additional protection, porcelain veneers are used to camouflage minor aesthetic imperfections in an otherwise healthy tooth structure. A dental crown is typically an ideal solution when decay or damage has weakened the enamel, making additional structural reinforcement necessary to sustain a compromised tooth. Covering the entire tooth body, our same-day dental crowns are crafted to blend in harmoniously with your smile and can be used for a variety of restorative purposes.
In contrast, veneers are a cosmetic treatment intended to improve the look of chips, gaps, misalignments, and cracks via porcelain shells bonded solely to the fronts of teeth. This is done with the hopes of restoring a full, younger-looking tooth structure as well as increasing symmetry in your smile. Although porcelain veneers can provide minor structural support, they are not an effective solution to address decay or debilitated tooth function.
Dr. Rallis can help you determine which option is the most beneficial treatment for your concerns. It is not uncommon for both dental crowns and porcelain veneers to be employed in cases of full mouth reconstruction for comprehensive smile enhancement.
Before treatment, Dr. Rallis will examine the state of your teeth and oral health to determine whether dental crowns are well-suited to achieve your treatment goals. Once your treatment plan for dental crowns is confirmed, he will prepare your tooth for restoration placement by removing parts of the tooth structure that have been weakened or decayed. While patients usually report that this process involves only minimal discomfort, our practice can employ sedation dentistry techniques if necessary to alleviate anxiety and make your experience more relaxing.
We have an efficient fabrication process in place right in our office, so you can just sit back and relax while we work on your new smile. Rather than deal with the messy materials traditionally used to make dental impressions, our practice uses sophisticated technology to take an optical impression of the prepared tooth and render an advanced three-dimensional virtual model. Dr. Rallis will then expertly design your restoration based on this model. Once the design is finalized, the data is sent to an in-office milling machine for manufacture. After your crown is crafted from a high-quality, all-ceramic material, it is fitted to ensure a comfortable fit and natural bite. Finally, the restoration is custom-tinted to the shade of your surrounding teeth and bonded to your enamel for long-lasting structural support.
This process takes place during the length of a single office visit. Our patients appreciate the great service, fast turn-around times, and stress-free experience with our tooth restoration services.
Our same-day dental crowns have outlasted 20 to 30 years of use in some cases. Ultimately, the lifespan of your crown will depend on how well you care for it once placed. After they are secured to the enamel, crowns behave much like your natural teeth and can similarly deteriorate from decay buildup or structural damage. As a result, remaining consistent with good oral hygiene habits—such as brushing, flossing, routine cleanings, and regular dental check-ups—is pivotal to the longevity of your dental crown. With proper care, your crown can provide additional strength and tooth protection for many years, and even decades, to come.
Dental crowns can be an invaluable way to preserve a damaged tooth and prevent the need for an extraction. These advanced restorations often involve less expense when compared to other tooth rehabilitation methods. When gauging the average price of dental crowns, several factors can influence your cost estimate. The expertise of your cosmetic dentist and the geographic region where your treatment is performed are usually determining factors. According to patient reviews on RealSelf.com, the approximate cost of treatment is $2,500 per crown, with the national range falling anywhere between $1,475 and $3,000. Other considerations that can affect the cost of dental crowns include:
