Strong, Beautiful, Versatile Dental Crowns

A dental crown, also known as a “cap,” is a restoration that covers an entire tooth to protect and reinforce it. You may need a crown if you have a tooth that’s been weakened by decay, an injury, or root canal treatment. The goal of placing a crown is to help save your tooth so that you don’t have to have it extracted. You might also choose to get a crown for aesthetic purposes; a crown can help cover up a tooth that’s misshapen or severely stained. Crowns are also used in other treatments like dental implants and dental bridges.

Think of dental crowns as your teeth’s personal bodyguards, boosting their strength and charm. Every crown gets a unique design and custom fit, seamlessly blending with your other teeth so that it’s hard for anyone to spot it’s a fix. With proper care, these crowns can stand strong for fifteen years or even more.

The Dental Crown Process

Getting a dental crown usually involves a pair of visits. Here’s how we do it at our dental practice in Mississauga:

Prepare your tooth

A comprehensive dental examination is the first step. You’ll meet with our dentist who will carefully evaluate your dental health and let you know whether a crown is the right choice for your tooth. You may need to have a professional teeth cleaning first, as well. 

 

Following that, the dentist will get your tooth ready for a crown by removing any damaged or decayed portions and giving your tooth a robust, wide cone-like structure. This preparation not only provides a solid base for the crown but also safeguards the inner parts of your tooth from additional harm.

 

If you’re receiving a crown to mend a dental implant, you can omit this tooth-preparation phase. For implant crowns, there’s no need to work on any other teeth – it’s all about enhancing your implant

Design your crown

Moving ahead, we will create an exact impression of your prepared tooth and the adjacent teeth. This impression serves as the foundation for designing a customized crown that fits perfectly with your bite. During this period, we will place a temporary crown on your prepared tooth to protect it until the final crown is ready.

Place your crown

During your final appointment for a dental crown, we will remove the temporary crown and perform a test-fit of the permanent one. If the fit and appearance of the crown meet our standards, we will securely attach it to your tooth. The dentist will also ensure that your bite feels natural and that the crown’s edges align seamlessly with your tooth by carefully flossing around it. With proper care and maintenance, your dental crown can remain in place for many years, enhancing both the strength and appearance of your tooth.

Cost Of Dental Crowns In Mississauga

The cost of a dental crown can vary significantly based on individual circumstances. With a typical insurance plan, the cost for a single crown usually falls between $200 and $600 or more. Without insurance, a reasonable estimate for a crown might range from $800 to $1200 and beyond. While most people find getting a dental crown an easy choice for restoring their oral health, the cost factor might still give you pause.

So, what factors contribute to the cost of a dental crown?
  • The type of crown and the chosen material.
  • The complexity and location of the procedure.
  • The potential need for multiple crowns.
  • Integration of crowns with other dental treatments like bridges.
  • Specific supplies and equipment essential for your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

While not every tooth that undergoes a root canal requires a crown, many do. The process of root canal treatment can render teeth dry and fragile, necessitating the addition of crowns for reinforcement. The decision regarding whether a crown is necessary largely hinges on the degree of chewing force the tooth endures. Molars that have undergone a root canal treatment are more likely to require a crown for support. Conversely, teeth located towards the front of your mouth might not need a crown at all.

Traditional teeth whitening methods are ineffective on dental crowns, as they are crafted from materials that don’t respond to whitening. If you have a discoloured crown, your dentist might offer the option to replace it with a new one that blends seamlessly with the colour of your surrounding teeth.

Absolutely not! The exciting part is that contemporary dental crowns are incredibly natural-looking, ensuring that nobody needs to be aware of their presence, whether it’s one or several. Crowns serve more than just functional purposes – they contribute to the aesthetics of your smile as well. When skillfully crafted by a proficient dentist, a crown seamlessly integrates with your smile to the extent that it’s practically indistinguishable.

Based on the state of your teeth, there could be alternative treatments available aside from dental crowns, like dental bonding or veneers. Your dentist will assess your teeth and assist you in identifying the most suitable treatment choice for your situation.

Undergoing a dental crown procedure generally leads to minor discomfort, and the majority of individuals don’t encounter substantial pain. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the region surrounding the treated tooth, ensuring you won’t experience any pain throughout the procedure.

Provided you take great care of your dental crown, it can last you for 15 years or even longer.

Maintaining a dental crown is akin to looking after your natural teeth. It involves brushing twice a day, daily flossing, and keeping up with routine dental checkups and cleanings. To safeguard the crown, refrain from chewing on tough or sticky foods, as these can potentially harm it.

Carrie Banning

Very professional and knowledgeable staff! Not only does this office always make me and my family feel so comfortable and understood, they offer many procedures that can be done in one day. I had a crown done here in one day, it is perfect and I was so relieved as I have a very busy schedule. My 9-year-old son will be seeing Dr. Ameen for orthodontic treatment as well, once again we won't have to be seen at other dental offices. So convenient and state of the art technology. Thank you Tomken Dental for always being accommodating

Linda

I recently had some required, major dental work done and the results were outstanding. Dr. Jasim was extraordinary with her dental expertise, artistic precision and her positive spirit. From my observations at Tomken Dental over the years, it feels as though the patients are treated like family. A shout out to Brittney for keeping my teeth clean over the years, and Irene and Tara for always being so welcoming. I would highly recommend Tomken Dental.
