Tooth Crowns in Fredericksburg

If you have misshapen or damaged teeth, you may be a candidate for a dental crown. These tooth-shaped prosthetic devices can improve your appearance and overall oral health.

What Is a Dental Crown?

Made from durable materials, a crown fits over your tooth or implant and covers it down to the gum line. It is designed to protect damaged teeth. Also known as a tooth cap, it can be used to reinforce a structurally compromised tooth and protect one that has had a root canal. A tooth crown can replace a large filling if there will not be enough tooth remaining. Dental caps can be used to secure a bridge in place. Along with strength, crowns can improve a tooth’s shape, color and alignment.

What Kind of Dentist Does Crowns?

While there are several specialists providing a variety of oral care, getting crowns at the dentist is considered a routine procedure. Along with cleanings, fillings and root canals, our office of family and general dentists can provide the care you need. Schedule an appointment if you believe that you need to get a tooth crown in Fredericksburg.

What Are the Types of Dental Crowns?

Crowns for teeth can be made from a variety of materials that can meet your unique requirements and preferences.

Commonly referred to as a porcelain crown, a ceramic crown is made from highly durable engineered or dental ceramic. Because ceramic has the ability to easily blend with the color of your natural teeth, it is a popular choice for a front tooth crown.

Metal alloy crowns are made from gold, silver, copper or other hypoallergenic materials. They provide a strong bond with teeth. Metal crowns will not fracture or wear away your tooth.

Porcelain-fused metal (PFM) provides a stronger bond than a regular ceramic tooth crown because the porcelain is fused to an underlying metal structure. This durable cap provides a tight seal that reduces the potential for tooth decay.

Steps Required for Dental Crowns

The procedure takes a minimum of two office visits. During the first appointment, your tooth will be evaluated and any additional treatments will be scheduled if necessary. A mold will be made of your teeth and a temporary crown will be positioned to protect your tooth. Once the permanent crown is ready, the dentist will fit and adjust it for comfort and security during another appointment.

What Does a Dental Crown Cost?

The required prep work and the type of cap that you choose will determine the cost of a dental crown procedure. A gold crown tooth may be less expensive than porcelain crowns. For more information on the cost of a dental crown based on your unique circumstances, contact our office.

How to Care for Crowns

Tooth crowns can last many years with proper care. This requires good oral hygiene habits. Along with brushing twice a day and flossing between teeth, you should schedule routine cleanings and checkups. Contact our office to arrange an appointment for all your dental care needs.
