About Dental Crowns
To heal and restore chipped teeth, discolored enamel, considerable decay, and different issues, dental crowns sit over the visible portion of the tooth. At DentalWorks - Easton in Columbus, OH, crowns (also known as caps) are tough, lasting covers that fit closely over the visible area of the tooth above the gumline to cover where a dental cavity is too sizeable to be fixed with a regular filling or if a tooth is damaged and must have protection. Crowns can also be helpful to conceal a different color tooth or adding stability to a dental bridge. Crowns by our dentists at DentalWorks - Easton can be ceramic, porcelain, or metal, according to the location of the crown. The hind teeth typically are helped by the increased strength of metal, but the front teeth look more natural with porcelain or ceramic crowns, which are dyed to be the same as the patient's natural teeth.

"Several years ago, I had a health issue come up that required all my teeth to needing to be pulled. Dr. Wilson did a wonderful job of it. The whole staff was very supportive. I was not able to get dentures tight away. I have recently started the process to get my dentures. Once again Dr. T and his staff are very supportive and helpful. I would recommend them with an A+ or a 10. The office is very clean and modern."- D.M. / Google / Oct 02, 2017

What to Expect
To make a personalized crown, our dentists first ready the tooth by filing off a slender layer of enamel, and then taking digital X-rays and molds of the tooth, which will be taken to the nearest dental lab. A temporary crown may be used to cover the tooth while the custom, permanent crown is being built. As soon as the custom, permanent crown is returned to DentalWorks - Easton in Columbus, OH, our dentists will carefully secure and bond the crown on top of the tooth. Our dentists will alter the crown for a better fit.
Some patients will feel brief tenderness or sensitivity to hot and cold, although on the whole patients will not feel any soreness after the crown is complete. With ideal home care and routine dental exams and professional cleanings, a dental cap will stay in place for anywhere from 10 - 40 years, depending on the material and location of the crown. Some patients may have a cavity or infection will cultivate below the crown, which will need a root canal treatment or a different procedure.
If the dental cap is regarded as medically necessary, dental insurance companies usually cover a portion of the bill, so our office staff at DentalWorks - Easton in Columbus, OH will talk with the insurance to estimate their coverage and then the patient's portion of the costs. Estimated billing, payment options, and financing plans are available at our office in Columbus, OH and can be talked about during the patient's meeting with our dentists.
