Dental CrownsA dental crown is a tooth restoration cap that surrounds a tooth or a tooth implant. It is used to restore the size, appearance, strength and shape of the tooth and is also used when a cavity threatens the health of a tooth. A dental crown also restores a broken or severely worn down tooth. Some people also use dental crowns for cosmetic purposes. Though they may be beneficial to dental health, it can be expensive to install dental crowns.

Crowns Q & A

Types of Dental Crowns

The crowns that our staff at The Avenue Dental Group use are a metal free. Our dental crowns are usually made from porcelain infused in resin or ceramic. Crowns can withstand biting and chewing force which makes them very durable and long lasting in regards to wear. It is advised to use dental crowns on teeth that are not easily noticeable by other people such as the molar.

The color of porcelain crowns can be matched with the color of the teeth which makes them look more natural than other dental crowns. The main drawback of porcelain crowns is that the porcelain portion of the dental crown can be easily chipped off. Porcelain dental crowns may be used on the front teeth or back teeth. Resin dental crowns are cheaper than other types of dental crowns but are more susceptible to fractures or breaking due to biting or chewing force. Ceramic dental crowns are a good choice for people with metal allergies. Ceramic crowns also provide a natural looking color, making them look more natural than other dental crowns. These types of dental crowns are best suited for your front teeth.

Care for Dental Crowns

Newly installed dental crowns are very sensitive especially when the tooth equipped with the crown has a nerve in it. Toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth may help ease the sensitivity of the crown. Sometimes, pain or sensitivity may be caused by placing the crown too high on the tooth which can be easily adjusted by the dentist. In some cases, the cement from under the crown is washed out that allows bacteria to leak in and may cause tooth decay. If the crown feels loose, it is important to call the dentist to prevent further damage.

Dental crowns do not need special care. Regularly brushing at least twice a day and dental flossing once a day is recommended for taking care of your teeth. Dental crowns, depending on the quality and the material used, may range from 600$ to 1500$ or more per crown.

The Proof is in Our Patients

Excellent dentist and staff! They were so patient, kind and informative. I felt much better about what I was spending money on once they explained more about my teeth and what was or could happen. They kept me comfortable and stopped to reevaluate at the first sign of discomfort on my part. I would and will go back to get more work or check ups done.

I came in and had a great experience with Dr. Jackson and staff. I hate going to the dentist but the staff made me feel very welcomed and they were not judgmental at all. I will be back, thank you!

This is the best dentist office I have ever been to. Hands down the nicest people from the hygienist to the dentist they are nice, kind and more than willing to talk to me. I don’t know what else I could ask for in a dentist office!

I have been taking my family to this office for 2 years now. I have had many dentists through my life. Dr. Mitchell is the only one I have thought of as my favorite. The part that helps the most is his gentle way of administering the shot. I barely feel it. I have always felt welcomed by the office staff and treated well. I would recommend this dentist to anyone. We only see Dr Mitchell so I can’t comment on any other dentists working there. The hygienists are knowledgeable, kind and gentle also.
