About Dental Crowns@headingTag>
To repair and protect chipped teeth, discolored enamel, considerable decay, and different issues, dental crowns sit over the visible portion of the tooth. At DentalWorks - Macedonia in Macedonia, OH, crowns (also known as caps) are tough, lasting covers that fit closely over the visible portion of the tooth 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 - Macedonia can be metal, porcelain, or ceramic, according to the location of the crown. The back 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.

What to Expect@headingTag>
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 permanent, custom crown is being made. As soon as the permanent, custom crown is returned to DentalWorks - Macedonia in Macedonia, OH, our dentists will carefully fit and set the crown on top of the tooth. Our dentists will alter the crown for a more comfortable fit.
Some patients will feel brief tenderness or sensitivity to hot and cold, although most patients will not feel any soreness after the crown is placed. With ideal home care and routine dental cleanings and exams, a dental cap will stay in place for anywhere from 10 - 40 years, depending on the material and placement of the crown. Some patients may have a cavity or infection will develop 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 may cover some or most of the bill, so our office staff at DentalWorks - Macedonia in Macedonia, 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 Macedonia, OH and can be talked about during the patient's meeting with our dentists.
