Crowns are the preferred method of tooth replacement, offering a secure and natural look and feel. At Connell Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer crowns and other dental services to residents of Gretna, New Orleans and Metairie, LA.
What Are Crowns?
Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed on top of your natural teeth. These can correct a range of functional and cosmetic concerns, including discoloration, chipped or broken teeth, space between the teeth, and tooth decay. Crowns can also be used to replace missing teeth with the aid of dental implants. Crowns are made to match the color of your teeth so they look completely natural.
How Much Do Crowns Cost?
The average cost of a crown is (COST), but this cost can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to fulfill a patient’s cosmetic goals. In some cases, your dental insurance provider may cover a portion of the cost of your crown treatment. Additionally, Connell Family Dentistry accepts financing through Lending Club and CareCredit® to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Crown?
We may recommend a crown if you have a severely cracked or decayed tooth. In addition, you may be a good candidate for a crown if you are experiencing any cosmetic concerns with the teeth. If you are considering a crown to replace missing teeth, Dr. Connell will help you determine if it is the best treatment approach.
What is the Crown Procedure Like?
The first step in receiving a dental crown is preparing the tooth. We will take impressions of the appropriate teeth in order to make a crown that will securely fit around it. After the impression is taken, we may provide you with a temporary crown while we produce your permanent crown. You will then return at a later date to receive your permanent crown. Patients may experience minor soreness after receiving their crown, but it is typically a fairly simple procedure with minimal discomfort recovery.
