WHAT IS A DENTAL CROWN?

A dental crown is a “cap” that’s placed over a damaged tooth. Crowns can be used to protect, cover, or simply improve the appearance of a tooth. They can restore a tooth’s original:

  • Size
  • Shape
  • Strength

REASONS FOR A DENTAL CROWN

Your dentist may recommend a dental crown for any of the following reasons:

  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking completely
  • To restore a worn-down tooth
  • To cover a misshapen tooth
  • To cover a tooth that is severely discolored

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN
TEMPORARY AND
PERMANENT CROWNS

Temporary crowns are generally assembled at the office and are made of stainless steel or acrylic. These will be used until your permanent crown is ready. Your personal crowns will be custom-made either at our office or at an external lab.

The use of a temporary crown will keep your tooth from breaking completely, stop it from cracking further, or eliminate any tooth pain that you are currently experiencing.

THE DENTAL CROWN
PROCEDURE

Getting a dental crown is a multi-step process that typically involves at least two visits to the dentist. That being said, the crown procedure at Dr. Patty Miami is fairly simple.

  1. First the area is numbed to make sure you feel no pain*.
  2. Before placing the dental crown(s), the tooth is prepared to make room for the
    appliance. This process involves shaving down the tooth and removing any damaged or
    decayed enamel.
  3. An impression of the tooth and the surrounding teeth is taken. These impressions are
    sent to a specialized dental lab where your crown will be made.
  4. A temporary acrylic crown is placed on the tooth.
  5. When we receive the crown from the lab, you will be asked to come back into the office to have the permanent crowns cemented into place. Each crown is custom-made to
    deliver maximum comfort and the best appearance possible.

*At Dr. Patty Miami we offer several sedation options for guests with dental anxieties.

HOW LONG DO CROWNS LAST?

Your dental crown will last between five and 15 years on average. While this is a large gap, it depends on a variety of things, including the wear and tear your crown is exposed to and your personal habits, such as grinding teeth or nail-biting.

During your visit at Dr. Patty Miami, we will go over oral hygiene practices you should follow to get the most life out of your dental crown.

CARING FOR YOUR DENTAL CROWN

Your crowned tooth will not necessarily require any special care. However, it’s important to remember that a dental crown won’t prevent tooth decay or gum disease.

That means that you must continue practicing good oral hygiene habits such as flossing and brushing twice a day with an electric toothbrush and follow up with an antibacterial mouth rinse at least once daily.

COST OF DENTAL CROWNS IN MIAMI

The price you will pay for your new crown will vary on your location and the type of crown you selected. Custom-made crowns made from high-quality porcelain can cost $1,000 to $3,000 per tooth at top [cosmetic dentists] in Miami.

Some dental plans may cover a portion of the dental implant procedure. Coverage will depend on whether your insurance plan considers crowns an elective procedure or a standard of care for replacing a missing tooth or teeth.

At Dr. Patty Miami, we work with a variety of dental insurance and can perform a complimentary benefits check on your first visit. Most of our clients pay cash or use third-party financing such as Care Credit.
