Tooth Crowns in Fairfield

Do you want to improve your smile in a short period of time? If you have discolored or damaged teeth, contact our practice about getting a tooth crown in Fairfield.

What are Dental Crowns?

Crowns are dental caps that cover damaged or cosmetically challenged teeth. Crowns are used to cover implants, as well. No one will realize that a crown is covering a tooth, unless you choose a gold crown. Crowns for teeth are an option when one tooth is misshapen or discolored and ruining an otherwise picture-perfect smile.

Do I have to See a Specialist for a Dental Crown?

No, our dentists routinely place temporary and permanent crowns on our patient’s teeth. Our dental team also performs regular checkups and cleanings to ensure that the crown lasts as long as possible. Visit one of our dentists if you are interested in having a dental crown procedure.

What Are My Crown Choices?

Our dentist will help you select the type of permanent crown that fits in your budget and meets your aesthetic needs.

Porcelain Crowns

Strong and resilient, crowns made from porcelain fused to metal make the ideal tooth cap for front teeth because the porcelain resembles tooth enamel. A porcelain crown also seals down to the gumline, protecting the tooth from further decay.

Ceramic Crowns

Ceramic crowns are resilient, but they grow brittle over time. Our dentist generally uses a ceramic crown for front teeth, since ceramic produces a higher level of aesthetics. If ceramic caps are used for back teeth, the crown will become brittle with continual heavy biting.

A Gold Crown

Patients often select a gold crown tooth for a back tooth, as metal crowns are the strongest of all crowns and last the longest. Many patients do not want gold crowns on their front teeth, but they do not mind having back molars crowned with gold, since it is so durable.

How Much Will a Front Tooth Crown Cost?

Crowns vary in cost depending on the crown material that you choose and what type of work needs to be done to your tooth before placing a temporary crown on it. Call our office and one of our knowledgeable staff members will give you more information about the dental crown cost.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Permanent Crown?

Assuming you do not need a root canal or an implant, you will have one visit where our dentist examines your teeth and talks to you about the various types of crowns. If you decide that a tooth crown is right for you, the dentist will prepare your tooth and cover it with a temporary crown. As soon as your permanent crown is ready, you will come back once again to have the temporary crown removed and the new crown fitted.

How Do I Care for My Crown?

Treat your crown as you would any other tooth. Good oral hygiene, such as regular daily brushing and flossing is as important to maintaining a tooth crown as it is for maintaining your healthy teeth.
