About Dental Crowns
To heal and protect broken teeth, deep discoloration, significant decay, and other problems, dental crowns cover the entire tooth. At DentalWorks - Grove City in Grove City, OH, crowns (sometimes called caps) are strong, durable covers that fit snugly over the the tooth above the gumline in cases where a cavity is too large to be filled with a tooth-colored filling or if the tooth is broken and needs protection. Crowns can also be used to mask a discolored tooth or to add to the stability to a dental bridge. Crowns by our dentists at DentalWorks - Grove City can be ceramic, metal, or porcelain, depending on the location of the crown. The molar and premolar teeth usually benefit from the extra strength of metal, while the visible teeth look better with porcelain or ceramic crowns, which are colored to match the patient's natural teeth.

"Dr. Wong is excellent at working with the customers, is fair, and works well to please others.I really enjoy negotiating pricing and having her explain what would be best for me for my sister’s up and coming wedding next year.I know that she will be the person for whom I should speak to in regards of a second opinion on my tooth and will do her best to get it at best price for my finically situation.I will always stick with Dr. Wong’s advice and council with her if I can reach an agreement on price if I’m ever to make a change in the shade, color, or texture of my tooth when I’m able to get qualified dental insurance.She worked well with me on Care Credit, but I know that I will have to get my tooth changed eventually so it looks more natural to my other teeth as well. Thank again Dr. Wong and I hope that we can work out pricing for my tooth once again as soon as you can so I can get an adjustment."- J.B. / Google / Apr 05, 2019

What to Expect
To create a custom crown, our dentists first prepare the tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel, then taking digital X-rays and impressions of the tooth, which will be sent to the dental laboratory. A temporary crown can be placed on the tooth while the customized crown is being crafted. When the customized crown is returned to DentalWorks - Grove City in Grove City, OH, our dentists will carefully bond and fit the crown on the tooth. Our dentists may adjust the crown for the best fit.
Some patients may experience temporary discomfort or tooth sensitivity, but the majority of patients do not have any pain after a crown is set. With proper home care and regular dental examinations and cleanings, a crown may last for 10 - 40 years, depending on the material and position of the crown. In some cases, a cavity or bacterial infection may build under the crown, which may require a root canal or other procedure.
If the crown is considered essential for the patient's health, dental insurance companies generally cover part of the cost, so our office staff at DentalWorks - Grove City in Grove City, OH will check with the patient’s insurance to determine their coverage and the patient's out-of-pocket costs. Estimated costs, payment options, and financing plans are available through our office in Grove City, OH and can be discussed during the patient's meeting with our dentists.
