About Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are an extremely effective way to repair multiple dental issues. Crowns (sometimes called caps) cover your entire tooth above the gumline, and they are constructed to match the size, shape, and color of your existing teeth to restore damaged tooth function. The experienced dentists at ACE Dental of Cove are highly knowledgeable when it comes to dental restorations, and our state-of-the-art technology produces quality results. Crowns can be used to fix broken, cracked, or worn teeth, and we can attach crowns to dental implants to complete the tooth replacement process. If you think a dental crown could be a solution to your dental problems, schedule a consultation at our Copperas Cove, TX office for more information.

Is a Crown Right for You?

Dental fillings may be used to repair minor areas of damage or decay on your tooth, but a crown may be necessary for teeth that need more extensive repair. Crowns can go on damaged front or back teeth, and they can be helpful in a variety of situations. If you have discolored, cracked, decayed, worn, oddly shaped, or broken teeth, you might benefit from a dental crown. Crowns are also used to anchor bridges, which are used as a nonsurgical solution to replace a missing tooth (or teeth). At ACE Dental of Cove, we offer crowns in multiple materials, such as porcelain, metal, and porcelain fused to metal. Our dental professionals can review these options with you during your consultation to help you decide which option will best meet your budget and needs.

The Dental Crown Process

Dental crowns usually require two visits to our office before the process is complete. During your first appointment, one of our dentists will use local anesthetic to numb the area around the designated tooth. In addition, we can also provide nitrous oxide sedation if you would like. The dentist will remove the damaged area(s) of your tooth, then will use iTero 3D technology to make a digital impression of the tooth. One of our dentists will then place a temporary crown over the damaged tooth because you’ll have to wait for 1 – 2 weeks before the permanent crown is sent back from the dental lab. When we receive it, we’ll give you a call to schedule your second appointment. During this visit, we will remove the temporary crown and use a bonding agent to apply the permanent version to your damaged tooth (or an existing dental implant). Your dentist can then make minor adjustments to adjust the crown’s fit.

Caring for Your Crown

After your permanent crown is placed, a member of our staff will provide you with instructions concerning how to care for your restoration, which includes brushing and flossing every day. When you visit ACE Dental of Cove for your regular cleanings, our dental care providers will check the status of the crown and the underlying tooth. With proper maintenance, dental crowns can last for several years. If you ever notice that your crown feels loose or if it comes off, call our office right away to schedule an appointment. Trying to reattach it on your own may damage your tooth, the restoration, or both!

Are Crowns Covered by Insurance?

Crowns are typically covered (at least partially) by dental insurance. We will call your insurance provider to determine your specific coverage and calculate any remaining cost to you. ACE Dental of Cove offers very competitive pricing, and we accept several payment methods for your convenience. If you don’t have dental insurance or if your personal cost will be too high, we can help you with low-interest medical financing to make your dental care more affordable.
