When Are Dental Crowns Used?

There are many instances in which a patient might need a dental crown, such as:

To Protect a Damaged Tooth

Dental decay and trauma can weaken the structure of your tooth to the point where it requires support to function normally. If your tooth is compromised, your dentist can remove any decay or damage, reshape the tooth, and fit it with a protective crown for improved strength and protection against future dental issues.

To Reinforce a Tooth After a Root Canal

A root canal may be necessary to treat more advanced cases of decay. During a root canal, your dentist clears all inflamed tissue from the inner part of your tooth, disinfects the inner surfaces, and seals the tooth with a filling. Your tooth is then fitted with a crown to provide lasting protection from further infection and damage.

To Replace Missing Teeth

Patients with missing teeth can restore their appearance and dental function with an implant-supported crown. Our South Ogden office partners with a local dental surgeon who can place a dental implant in your jawbone to replace the natural tooth roots. Your dentist can then attach a custom-made crown that naturally blends in with your smile. If you have widespread tooth loss, we offer more comprehensive treatments, such as dental implant-supported bridges and dentures. Your dentist can discuss which option is best for you during your consultation.

Initial Consultation

Dr. Patrick Tanner will conduct a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums, and overall oral health to determine if dental crowns are the best option for you. If your dentist decides you could benefit from treatment, you can schedule your next appointment.

Numbing Anesthetic

Dental crown treatment can usually be done with just local anesthesia, but we can provide effective oral conscious sedation or nitrous sedation if you have dental anxiety or need help relaxing during treatment.

Shaping the Tooth

Damage and decay will be removed from the tooth and the remaining structure will be gently reshaped to provide the best fit for your dental crown. 

Digital Impressions

Once your tooth is properly shaped, your dentist will take a digital impression of the tooth. This impression will be used to create a comfortable restoration.

Temporary Crown

You will receive a natural-looking temporary crown to wear while your permanent crown is created. The temporary crown will help you chew, speak, and smile comfortably while your permanent restoration is being created.

Dental Laboratory

Your digital scans will be sent to a trusted lab that hand-finishes each custom restoration. They will complete your crown in around 10 business days.

Permanent Crown

Return to our South Ogden office so your dentist can remove the temporary crown and replace it with your permanent restoration. After a few minor adjustments to ensure the best fit, you'll be able to enjoy your healthier, happier smile. 

Paying for Dental Crowns Making Your Treatment More Affordable

Our South Ogden office offers competitive pricing and will never try to sell you more than you need to complete your smile. We take a conservative approach to dental care and will work with you to help you afford treatment by:

Accepting Insurance Plans

Dental crowns that are used for restorative purposes, like covering a damaged tooth, will likely receive at least partial coverage from your insurance provider. If your crown is strictly for cosmetic purposes, such as to cover a discolored tooth, insurance will not contribute to the cost. We accept most insurances.

Offering Financing Options

For patients who are uninsured or paying for their crown out-of-pocket, we accept financing through CareCredit®. CareCredit is a healthcare lender that offers low- or no-interest loans based on credit approval. They can break the cost of your treatment into manageable monthly payments.
