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.

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.
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.
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.
