Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

Cosmetic Dentistry nebraska family dentistry lincoln ne

When it comes to protecting your teeth, crowns are the real deal. Don’t be fooled into thinking that if your teeth don’t hurt, they’re fine. On the contrary, your teeth won’t begin to hurt until something serious is wrong. At this point, root canal therapy often becomes necessary. If it is, we’ll finish the procedure by capping off your teeth with dental crowns.

Dental crowns (or caps) are coverings that encase the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. We use dental crowns to protect a person’s tooth, specifically from further decay and/or trauma. An excellent way to be sure you’ll never need a crown is to take good care of your teeth at home and to see your dentist at least twice a year. If you need more extensive treatment than a dental cleaning, you’re likely in the market for a dental crown.

Here at Lincoln Family Dentistry, we believe everyone deserves access to good oral health. Your health shouldn’t be based on what you can afford. This is why we’ve made it a point to offer several different payment plans and affordable treatment options. Read on to learn more about how we can help you and how dental crowns can help you save more money.

Types and Benefits of Crowns

Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth-colored) crowns are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years. However, like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.  Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth. With these as a solution, crowns give you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.

Reasons for Crowns

  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Cosmetic enhancement
  • Decayed teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • Large fillings
  • Tooth has had a root canal

Our porcelain crowns will make it impossible for anyone to see that you’ve had alterations done! Before recently, it was much easier to spot crowns and bridges in a person’s mouth. However, today crowns and bridges are made to blend in perfectly with your teeth. To see if you need a crown, schedule an appointment with us using the form at the bottom or call us at 402-467-1000.

What is the procedure for getting a crown?

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several molds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown.  A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown, which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until a dental laboratory fabricates your new crown.

While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to fit the crown properly.  Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.

At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate. You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.

Finally, after your second appointment, you’ll have a brand new crown! Congratulations if you’ve gotten to this point. This crown ensures that you can use your tooth without hurting it further or causing decay. It’s important to continue taking care of your tooth even after it has a crown. Be sure to brush your teeth around the crown each time you brush, and be careful when flossing around the crown. If you take good care of your teeth, you can help your crown to last for several years to come. In the meantime, be sure to also come in for bi-annual dental cleanings. These appointments allow your dentist to check on your dental crown, ensuring it is working correctly. Similarly, dentists also use these cleanings to make sure decay hasn’t started to build up under or around your crown.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Crowns

Despite the fact that dental crowns are a standard procedure in our office, most patients still have questions about them. Below are a couple of the questions asked most frequently in our office.

How can I take care of my crown post-operatively?

After your dentist gives you a crown, caring for it at home is of the utmost importance. For the most part, caring for a crown is easy. By being sure to brush and floss every single day, you’ll increase the likelihood of a long life for your crown. Pay close attention when you floss near the crown, so you don’t break it. Another important thing to do is to see your dentist twice a year for cleanings. Finally, hard foods can sometimes break dental crowns. Avoid hard foods as much as possible, and if you do have to eat them, try chewing with the opposite side of your mouth.

How much does a crown cost?

In many cases, dental crowns are covered by your insurance company. However, many people don’t have insurance, and the cost of this procedure can vary greatly. For those that don’t have insurance, you’ll be expected to pay for your treatment out of pocket. If this isn’t doable, you might consider checking out CareCredit. You can also call us at 402-467-1000 and ask about our convenient payment plans. Instead of offering an inaccurate quote for your teeth, we recommend asking our dentists. By doing this, you’ll allow the dentist to examine your teeth and offer a much more accurate estimate.
