Dental problems can often be one of the most irritating kinds of health issues. Whether the cause is tooth decay or otherwise, the pain caused by dental issues can make basic parts of life like talking and eating a challenge.

To determine which dental crown material is best for you, factors such as tooth location, the tooth’s function, the position of gum tissue, the tooth’s functions, color, and shade, as well as how much of your teeth is shown while smiling.

Depending on your needs and your budget can be deciding factors, and it is always best to speak with a tooth crown specialist to get more information. They will be able to help you decide the best type of dental crown for your situation.


What Does a Crown Look Like?

Dental crowns look like hollow, tooth shaped “caps” that are placed over a prepared natural tooth, completely covering the entire visible portion of the tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

How Long Do Crowns Last?

On average, dental crowns last between five and 15 years. The life space of a crown can depend on the amount of “wear and tear” the crown is exposed to, as well as your personal mouth-related habits.

How Long Does a Crown Take?

The first step takes 50 to 90 minutes to complete. It involves your dentist removing any decay and measuring your tooth’s outer portion to ensure the crown will properly fit with precision. Your dentist will then build up the core of the tooth if necessary. After the tooth has been reshaped, your dentist will take its impression using a digital scanner, paste, or putty to create the crown.

The next step takes about 20 to 30 minutes. It involves replacing a temporary crown with a permanent one when your mouth is ready. your dentist will check the fit and color of the crown before placing it. If everything is fine, the crown will be cemented in position.

How Much Does a Crown Cost Without Insurance?

Without insurance, the crown cost ranges from $900 to $1200 or more per crown. However, you don’t usually have to worry, because some portion of the cost is typically covered by your dental insurance.

How Much Tooth is Needed for a Crown?

In most cases, at least two millimeters of tooth structure is required for a crown, meaning that at least one-quarter of the visible portion of the tooth must be present and healthy enough to support a dental crown.

How Strong Are Crowns on Front Teeth?

This depends on the material used for the crown, but you can expect these crowns to last at least 10 years with proper care. Please remember that like other crowns, front tooth ones can be knocked out or become loose over time.
