About Dental Crowns
To restore and protect broken teeth, deep discoloration, significant decay, and other problems, dental crowns cover the entire tooth. At DentalWorks - Reynoldsburg in Reynoldsburg, OH, crowns (sometimes called caps) are strong, durable covers that fit snugly on top of the area of the tooth above the gumline in cases where a cavity is too large to be filled with a tooth-colored filling or if the tooth is broken and needs a shield. Crowns may also be used to mask a discolored tooth as well as to add to the stability to a bridge. Crowns by our dentists at DentalWorks - Reynoldsburg may be porcelain, ceramic, or metal, depending on the placement of the crown. The less visible teeth usually benefit from the extra durability of metal, while the visible teeth look better with ceramic or porcelain crowns that are colored to match the patient's natural teeth.

What to Expect
To create a custom crown, our dentists initially prepare the tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel, then taking dental X-rays and impressions of the tooth that will be sent to the dental laboratory. A temporary cap can be placed on the tooth while the custom crown is being created. When the custom crown is returned to DentalWorks - Reynoldsburg in Reynoldsburg, OH, our dentists will expertly set and fit the crown on the tooth. Our dentists may adjust the cap for the most comfortable fit.
Some patients may experience temporary discomfort or tooth sensitivity, but for the most part patients do not have any pain after a cap is in place. With proper at-home care and regular dental exams and cleanings, a crown may last for 10 - 40 years, based on the placement and material of the cap. In some cases, an infection or cavity may grow under the crown, which may require a root canal or other procedure.
When the crown is considered a necessary procedure, dental insurance policies will usually pay part or most of the cost, so our office staff at DentalWorks - Reynoldsburg in Reynoldsburg, OH will check with the patient’s insurance to determine their coverage and the patient's out-of-pocket expenses. Estimated costs, payment methods, and financing options are accepted through our office in Reynoldsburg, OH and can be discussed at the patient's consultation with our dentists.
