Patients are often unsure whether or not they need a dental crown...
When to See the Dentist
The only way to know for sure if you need a crown is to visit the dentist for an exam. Most of the time, patients learn they need treatment after we diagnose a dental condition during a routine check-up. However, you may notice abnormal symptoms on your own that could indicate the need for a dental crown.
Ask yourself the following:
Does my tooth look discolored?
Am I experiencing pain when chewing?
Are my teeth sensitive to hot and cold temperatures?
Is my tooth structurally damaged with a visible crack or fracture?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it's time to schedule an appointment with the dentist. During a consultation, we can highlight the differences between restorations such as crowns and dentures and determine which treatment best fulfills your needs.
Tell Me More about Implant-Supported Crowns...
Dental implants are one of the best solutions in modern restorative dentistry for patients with tooth loss. We can restore any number of missing teeth by attaching custom-made restorations like crowns and dentures to dental implants. If you are missing a single tooth, an implant-supported crown will repair the visible gap in your smile as well as protect you from oral health problems like jawbone recession. Ask our dentists if you are a candidate for dental implants during your next appointment at our Carthage office.

Why Choose CEREC?
Porcelain looks incredibly natural and will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
As many patients know, getting a dental crown was not always as simple as we make it seem. Traditionally, patients would wear a temporary crown for a few weeks while their permanent crown was made at an off-site dental lab. Temporary crowns are known to be less stable and are much more likely to fall off and leave your tooth exposed.
Now, with CEREC technology, we can start and finish your treatment in one office visit, making temporary crowns and lengthy waiting periods a thing of the past. Best of all, same-day restorations do not compromise on quality.

How Much Do Dental Crowns Cost?
When used to address damage or decay, dental crowns are considered a medical necessity and most insurance plans will cover at least part of the cost. Crowns placed for cosmetic purposes and not typically covered, however. The average price per crown can range from $800-$1,500 or more, but the total cost depends on several factors, including the number of crowns and your choice of materials.
We also offer flexible financing options for patients who do not have insurance or who want additional options to cover out-of-pocket expenses. During a consultation, our staff can see how much your insurance will cover and provide a more personalized estimate for your treatment.
Taking Care of Your Porcelain Crown
Your permanent dental crown requires little to no additional maintenance, which is another benefit of the treatment. Even though your natural tooth is covered by the crown, it is still susceptible to decay. Patients should practice good hygiene habits — including brushing twice a day and flossing regularly — to prevent gum disease and other oral health problems.

So thankful they were able to see me last minute. I'm a new resident in the area and I reached out after 9:30 am, they were able to see me at 1:30 on the same day, and I was a new patient. Definitely recommend their office.View On Healthgrades
