Crowns versus Veneers
When deciding between a dental crown or veneers, it is important to understand the differences between these approaches and what the benefits are to each. Veneers are mostly used for cosmetic purposes, whereas dental crowns are primarily for patients who want to restore not only appearance, but also functionality. Unlike veneers, crowns will cover the surfaces of the tooth, which will improve the effectiveness
of biting and chewing when you are eating.
Be sure to discuss different options for treatment with your hygienist or dentist to decide what procedure is the best fit for you and your dental needs.
Site Effects & Risks
Following the placement of your crown, your teeth or gums may be extra sensitive. This is a common response and can be easily managed with over-the counter pain relievers. We can also provide you with specially formulated rinses and pastes that will work to ease your discomfort.
Following a dental crown procedure, it is important to continue practicing good daily oral hygiene to prevent bacterial infections and decay. Just like the natural tooth it is replicating, the crown is also at risk of fracturing, chipping, or cracking when eating or chewing on hard foods.
Generally, crowns will last patients anywhere between 5-15 years, but provided you continue taking good care of your teeth and avoid foods that are likely to cause cracks or fissures, your crowns may last for decades.
If you have any questions concerning your crown following your procedure, please contact our staff an we will be happy to address your concerns.
Like most dental procedures, what is covered by your insurance depends on your individual insurance plan. Still, most insurance plans cover dental crown procedures. Keep in mind that your insurance plan may not cover 100% of the costs, so be prepared to pay some of the costs out of pocket. If you do not currently have dental coverage or would like to discuss payment options, please contact our staff to see what opportunities may be available.
