A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over the tooth that has been decayed or damaged. It restores your tooth’s shape and size and improves the way it looks. Crowns are shaped like natural teeth and are also created to match the natural color of your teeth, so they can perfectly blend in.
Why would you need a dental crown?
Your dentist may recommend a dental crown for the following reasons:
- You’ve had a root canal.
- Your tooth is weakened by a huge cavity that is too large for a filling.
- Your tooth is chipped or broken.
- Your tooth has severe discoloration.
What to expect
Two visits are usually needed. The first step involves examining and preparing the tooth. Your dentist will apply anesthetic to numb the tooth and the surrounding gum tissue. Then, he/she will drill the tooth to remove the outer portion where the crown will be placed. Any decay will also be removed during this process as well. Your dentist will make an impression of the tooth using a mold or 3d scanner and send it to a dental lab. It usually takes 2 weeks for the crown to be ready. In the meantime, a temporary crown will be placed on your tooth. Your tooth may feel sensitive to hot and cold while you have the temporary crown. It’s best to avoid hard and sticky food during this time.
On your second appointment, the temporary crown will be removed and a new crown will be adjusted to properly fit your tooth and bite. If everything is okay, the crown will be cemented into place.
Caring for your dental crown
Majority of dental restorations don’t require more care than actual teeth. However, a crown does not protect the tooth from decay and gum disease. To ensure your tooth and crown stay healthy, you need to brush your teeth twice daily, floss regularly, and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash at least once a day. You also have to schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings with your dentist to ensure that your tooth and crown are in good working order.
How much do dental crowns cost?
The cost of a dental crown placement varies per patient. No two procedures are exactly alike, but there are common factors that influence the cost of dental crown placement:
- The material used for the crown
- The location of the tooth being replaced
- The amount of preparation needed to place the crown

I still come here for my dental needs and they are great as always. I had gotten a crown here and my tooth gives me no issues and still looks great. I appreciate how they take the time to explain everything to you, I had a couple of questions and they thoroughly explained everything and told me what precautions to take ans such. They don’t push anything either and let you take your time.

Extremely satisfied and no more pain after 6 months!! Several months ago I went to another dentists office because of pain and i had a tooth that was badly decaying. They told me that I needed an implant, root canals, crowns, etc. Well after the first appointment at First Dental care I got my root canals done and Dr. Kim said he can probably save my tooth so i would not have to get an implant. Well, yea he saved my tooth and a boat load of cash for an implant. Dr. Kim even gave me great discounts and fixed my chip tooth that i had for 8 years. He also made my other front tooth the same color as all my other front teeth. He explained everything thoroughly and was not pushy about trying to sell me anything. I felt he had my best interest at heart. The staff were all nice and made me feel comfortable. Well now i have my root canals done, my crowns, chip tooth fixed, and all my teeth are the same color now. But most of all, no more pain and i can now chew on both sides of my mouth. Even though i will be moving about an hour away from this office location I will be returning to Dr. Kim for life! Now…. let me go and chew on my hard tacos on both sides of my mouth while looking all pretty! ha!!
