Lifelike Solutions to Damaged Teeth

While tooth enamel is the strongest material in the human body, it can still become damaged over the years. This is especially true if you consume a lot of sugary items, which fuel dangerous bacteria in your mouth that erode enamel and create cavities. If you have a severely decayed or broken tooth in North Dallas, we can restore its function with a lifelike dental crown. Each crown is personalized to match the rest of your teeth, seamlessly blending into your smile. Read more below to learn how this amazing treatment could be just the thing your smile needs.

What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged tooth, starting at the gumline, to protect and restore the size and shape of your tooth. While many materials have been used in the past to create dental crowns, we are excited to offer porcelain dental crowns in North Dallas. Crowns made of dental porcelain can be matched to the exact color of your smile and provide a natural, beautiful finish. They are also exceptionally strong, able to withstand the daily forces of biting and chewing for years to come.

Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Our devoted dentist, Dr. Saeed Rouhani, may suggest a dental crown to:

  • Repair a severely damaged or decayed tooth when a filling wouldn’t be enough
  • Hold an already broken tooth together
  • Improve the appearance of an aesthetically flawed tooth
  • Protect a tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Cover a single dental implant post

How Are Dental Crowns Made?

To begin making a dental crown, we will first prepare your tooth by gently reshaping the tooth and taking detailed molds and impressions. This is done to ensure the crown will look natural and fit properly in your mouth. While waiting for your final restoration to be made, we will put a temporary crown in place. After your crown has been sent back to Dental Attraction, we will check it to ensure quality and fit. When everything is perfect, we will permanently cement the crown in place.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Frequently Asked Questions – Dental Crowns

If you’ve recently been told that you need a dental crown, chances are you have a few questions. After all, getting a crown requires permanently reshaping your tooth. However, there’s no need to worry. Dr. Rouhani only recommends a crown when no other treatment would suffice, so you can rest easy knowing that it’s in your best interest. He will take the time during your consultation to address any concerns you may have. In the meantime, it may help to read through these dental crown FAQs in North Dallas.

How Can I Make My Dental Crown Last?

Maintaining your crown is actually not much different from caring for any other tooth. Keep in mind that just because a tooth is covered by a crown doesn’t mean it’s impervious to decay or infection. Daily brushing and flossing should prevent bacteria from accumulating near the base of the crown. Also, make sure to see us at least twice a year for a routine checkup and cleaning. These visits will minimize the need for more expensive and invasive dental treatments in the future.

How Much Do Dental Crowns Cost?

There isn’t a fixed price of getting a dental crown. Your cost will depend on your unique treatment plan, including factors such as where in your mouth the crown will be placed and whether you require any procedures beforehand, like a root canal. We can provide you with a cost estimate during your consultation. A friendly member of our team can discuss your payment options with you and find a way for you to pay for your crown without breaking the bank.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance?

Every dental insurance policy is different. However, many of them consider dental crowns to be a restorative procedure, so they will often cover a portion of the cost. At Dental Attraction, we are in-network with several insurance carriers, such as Delta Dental, Cigna, and Aetna. We’ll gladly look over your plan and find out how much coverage you qualify for.

If you’re uninsured, we can help you apply for a low-interest loan through third-party financing companies like Lending Club and CareCredit.

What Happens If My Crown Falls Off?

Even with the most careful maintenance, a dental crown will eventually need to be replaced. If your crown comes loose or falls off entirely, don’t panic. Just give us a call and we’ll get an appointment scheduled for you as soon as we can.

In the meantime, do not try to repair the crown on your own. Doing so could irreversibly damage the crown or your tooth. It’s also a good idea to avoid chewing with that tooth until we have cemented the crown back into place.
