Tooth Crowns in Flint

If you have a tooth requiring support, such as a tooth that has a very large filling, or you have a cosmetically challenged tooth, contact our practice to discuss whether you are a suitable candidate for a tooth crown.

What is a Tooth Crown?

Crowns for teeth fortify the remainder of a damaged tooth that is not strong enough to stand on its own. You may have heard someone say that he or she is getting his or her teeth capped; crowns are the same as dental caps, as the crown “caps” the tooth. In addition, crowns can cover discolored teeth so that they match the rest of the teeth in your mouth. No one will notice the crown, as it will look just like your other teeth.

Do Dentists Fit Crowns?

The general or family dentist who performs your checkup can also provide you with a crown, if needed.

What are My Crown Material Options?

Our dentist will help you select the material for your crown based on the strength needed and your cosmetic preferences.

Porcelain Crowns Fused to Metal

The metal gives a porcelain crown extra strength to last for a long period in any part of your mouth. Even when the dentist uses porcelain as a front tooth crown, the cap is indistinguishable from your other teeth.

Ceramic Crowns

Dentists usually will suggest a ceramic crown with a porcelain-based filling when you need the closest match to the natural color of one of your front teeth.

Gold Crowns

A gold crown tooth is noticeable but quite rugged, and able to stand up to a heavy bite. Gold crowns are suitable for people who grind their teeth.

Can You Explain the Dental Crown Procedure?

On your initial visit, the dentist will explain the procedure and then explain the advantages and disadvantages of each crown material. If you do not need other dental work to the tooth, it is filed down so that the tooth cap will fit and not be larger than your surrounding teeth.

The dentist makes an impression of your tooth and the surrounding teeth and then sends the information to the dental laboratory. You will have a temporary cap over your tooth until your crown arrives. Then, the dentist will fit the permanent crown on your second visit.

What Does a Tooth Crown in Flint Usually Cost?

To find out your dental crown cost, schedule an appointment with one of our dentists, who will determine if you need any work done first. Variables, such as additional work, and the crown material that you select, will determine the final cost. Your insurance may cover part of the cost.

How Do I Care For a Crown?

Crowns are just like any other tooth in your mouth; use proper dental hygiene as recommended by the dentist. If you are interested in learning about how a crown can restore your tooth to like-new condition, call our office today.
