Dental Crowns in North Edmonton

Crowns are a crucial aspect of restorative dentistry and can enhance the appearance of the damaged tooth, as well as its strength and longevity.

Seamless Tooth Reinforcement and Restoration

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” placed on a damaged tooth. Crowns are used to restore the tooth’s shape and size and protection and strengthen it. Crowns can also be used for conditions like holding a dental bridge, topping off a dental implant, or even in specific cosmetic applications. Once cemented, the crowns cover the whole tooth surface above the gum line.

Procedure for Getting a Crown Done

The dental crown procedure typically happens throughout two appointments. Your dentist will then appoint a date for the procedure.

Here are the Steps Followed:

Examining and Preparing the Tooth

Your oral care provider will examine and clean the tooth to prepare it for an easy-fit crown. In the case of a damaged tooth, the dentist will need to remove the affected parts before placing the crown so that it can later function as a protective surface to prevent further decay.

Molding the Crown

Once the tooth is checked and ready, your dentist will make an impression of your prepared tooth. This impression will be sent to the lab so the crown can be customized to fit your bite correctly. You will eventually head home with a temporary crown to protect your teeth between your first and second appointments.

Placing the Crown

On your second visit, which should typically be after two weeks, you will get your temporary crown removed and replaced with a permanently cemented crown. The procedure will be finished by polishing the crown, and any necessary adjustments will be made to ensure your comfort.

Cost of Dental Crowns

The price of a crown varies from one patient to the other—a single crown costs between $300 and $700+ on average with standard insurance coverage. Without dental insurance, a crown would cost between $1200 and $1400 or more.

What Factors Determine the Cost of a Dental Crown?

  • Type and material of the crown
  • The complexity of the procedure
  • The number of crowns required and any other dental appliances, bridges, or implant posts.
  • Treatment options – This includes fees for any special equipment or treatments.

Please remember that the cost of the crown does not include any additional procedures that may be required before the crown is constructed, such as root canals, posts, or tooth build-ups.

Remember that no dentist can offer an accurate quotation over the phone. It is essential to consult with a dentist and have an oral exam to learn about your treatment choices and obtain an exact price. If you have dental insurance, we will provide you with an estimate to submit to them so you can determine your out-of-pocket expenses before making a decision.
