Teeth Restoration At Its Best

The dental crown, often referred to as a “cap,” serves as a protective covering for a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment, experienced breakage, discolouration, decay, or possesses an irregular shape. These tailored and custom-fitted crowns seamlessly blend with the shade and shape of your original teeth, boasting a lifespan of over 15 years. Moreover, they can be utilized to anchor a dental bridge, crown a dental implant, or for specific cosmetic enhancements to achieve aesthetic goals.

What Should I Expect When Getting A Crown?

Typically, a dental crown procedure involves two office appointments and is carried out by a dentist.

Setting Up The Procedure

Like any other dental procedure, the process commences with a dental examination, wherein the dentist will assess and clean your teeth to ensure they are ready for a seamless fit. In case the tooth is broken or significantly affected by decay, the damaged portions will be removed to facilitate the dental crown’s role in shielding the tooth from additional decay.

Shaping Crowns

Afterward, using dental putty, we will create an impression of your teeth, which will serve as the basis for crafting full porcelain crowns. Meanwhile, a temporary dental crown will be fitted onto your teeth, serving as an interim solution until your next appointment. In case you require a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, we’ll also take an impression of the implant and the adjacent teeth, using it to produce a personalized crown at our lab.

Setting The Crown

During your second visit, we will take out the temporary crown and replace it with the permanent one. The crown will be firmly affixed using either strong dental cement or a concealed screw. We’ll then meticulously polish the crown and make any required adjustments to guarantee your utmost comfort and security.

The Cost Of A Crown In Tottenham

The cost of a dental crown can vary significantly from one patient to another. With a standard insurance plan, the average price for a single crown ranges from $200 to $600 or more. Without insurance coverage, a reasonable estimate for a crown would be around $800 to $1200 and above. Although many people consider getting a dental crown as an easy decision to restore their mouth’s appearance and functionality, the expense may still give you pause.

Factors that influence the cost of a dental crown include:
  • The type of crown and the material used.
  • The location and complexity of the procedure.
  • The number of crowns required.
  • Any combination with other dental appliances like bridges.
  • Specific supplies and equipment needed for your treatment.

It’s essential to remember that no dental practice can provide an accurate quote over the phone since your needs are as unique as your smile. To obtain precise information about your treatment options and receive an accurate quote, it’s best to consult a dentist and undergo an oral examination. If you have dental insurance, we are happy to provide you with a quote to submit to them, enabling you to determine your out-of-pocket costs before making a decision.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

The necessity of a crown following a root canal greatly relies on the tooth’s location in the mouth. Teeth located towards the back, such as molars and premolars, play a crucial role in chewing and often require crowns for added strength and protection. On the other hand, incisors or canines, which aren’t primarily used for chewing, may not always necessitate crowns.

A crown and a filling differ notably in terms of durability, especially for teeth with substantial biting surfaces. Fillings placed on the biting surfaces of molars can chip or loosen over time due to the repetitive pressure from chewing or clenching habits. In contrast, a crown forms a continuous and unbroken surface from gumline to gumline, designed to endure significantly greater force over an extended period.

In your mouth, dental crowns serve two significant purposes. Firstly, they fully restore the functionality of your tooth, allowing you to close your teeth and chew without any pain or discomfort, eliminating the need to compensate by chewing on one side. Secondly (though equally crucial!), crowns are meticulously crafted to seamlessly blend with your natural teeth. They are carefully coloured and contoured to match your aesthetic, to the point where some individuals even forget which tooth is the crowned one.

A post is not exactly a dental implant, as it does not get surgically implanted into the jaw bone. However, the name describes it accurately: a medical-grade post that can be cemented into a prepared root canal to provide support and stability for a dental crown. Dental posts are utilized when there is insufficient healthy tooth structure remaining to securely hold a crown in place.

The process of getting a crown can resemble getting a filling, depending on your tooth’s condition. We prioritize your comfort by taking our time to gently numb the area and use appropriate freezing techniques during the tooth preparation to ensure a painless experience. While you may experience slight sensitivity or mild soreness in the gums around the tooth for a brief period after the procedure, rest assured that we’re here to address any concerns. If you feel anxious about visiting the dentist, please inform us! Our goal is to alleviate your worries and provide you with the most comfortable experience possible.

With proper care, 25-30 years

Just like your natural teeth, a dental crown requires regular maintenance. By practicing regular brushing and flossing, you can keep your dental crown and the supporting gum around it in optimal health and cleanliness. Additionally, regular dental cleanings and checkups are vital for maintaining your overall oral health.

I live over 2 hours away but after hearing numerous positive reviews from friends and being disappointed by a local dental office, I decided to visit this dental office for a cleaning, cavity check, and x-rays. Unlike my previous experiences closer to home, Dr. Singh's explanations were clear and he provided up to date treatment options, making the process much smoother. The efficiency of Dr. Singh and his dental assistants was impressive. Gillian, the office manager, was delightful, and her calming demeanor was greatly appreciated. Thank you, Dr. Singh, for the exceptional service!

I switched to T. Smiles Dental after my previous office was bought out by a corporation and the service went downhill. I have had both Dr. Singh and Dr. Habib and they are both so lovely and make you feel like you're in good hands. Crystal, the hygienist, is quick, thorough, and very easy to pass the hour appointment with. I think the best part about switching is that I trust the opinions I'm getting and I never feel like I'm being over-sold unnecessary treatments, which is a big deal for me. A well-earned 5 stars!
