Dental crowns act like a helmet for teeth which are weak, for example, broken teeth or teeth with large fillings, teeth with cracks, or root canal treated teeth. Dental crowns are either made of a type of porcelain or metal, and they act to protect the underlying tooth that is remaining.
At Dental House, crowns can actually be made on the same day. With the latest 3-D scanning technology, there is no longer a need for a silicone impression or a return appointment. The tooth is instead scanned, the crown is designed on a computer and then carved out of a ceramic block by a milling unit. The colour and shape of the crown is custom-designed to match the neighbouring teeth. Whilst the crown is being designed, you can even take a break and go for a stroll before returning to have it cemented on permanently.
The cost of a dental crown can therefore vary depending on the material being used, whether it requires a laboratory or extra components as with dental implants for instance. In terms of price, generally speaking, a dental crown would cost anywhere between fifteen hundred to twenty-five hundred dollars based on the factors that we just discussed.
