Perfectly Seamless Tooth Restoration

A dental crown is a “cap” placed over a tooth that has been broken, treated by root canal, stained, damaged by decay, or is misshapen. Individually crafted and custom-fitted dental crowns blend in with the tone and contour of your natural teeth and can last for more than 15 years. Sometimes crowns are also used to hold a dental bridge, top off a dental implant, or may be applied for certain cosmetic modifications or aesthetic purposes.

What’s The Process Of Getting A Crown?

A dental crown procedure usually requires two office visits and is performed by a dentist.

Here is how we go about it:

Examining and Preparing the Tooth

As with any other kind of dental treatment, everything starts with the dental examination, during which the dentist will check and clean your teeth to prepare them for an easy fit. If the tooth is broken or severely damaged by decay, we will remove the damaged areas so the dental crown can protect the tooth from further decay.

Shaping the Crown

Next, using dental putty, we will take an impression of your teeth to construct full porcelain crowns. You will then be provided with a temporary dental crown fitted onto your teeth until your next appointment. If you are missing a tooth and wish to replace it with a dental implant, we will take an impression of the implant and the surrounding teeth. Our lab will use the impression to manufacture your custom crown.

Placing the Crown

At your second appointment, we will remove your temporary crown and replace it with a permanent one. The crown will be secured using durable dental cement or a hidden screw. To complete the process, we will polish your crown and make any necessary adjustments to ensure your comfort and its secure fit.

Cost of Dental Crowns in Toronto

The out-of-pocket cost for a dental crown can vary widely from patient to patient. With a typical insurance plan, a single crown averages about $200 to $600+. Without insurance, a reasonable ballpark figure for a crown would be about $800 to $1200 and up. To get your mouth looking and feeling normal again, most people find a dental crown to be an easy decision, but the cost may still give you pause.

So what goes into determining the cost of a dental crown?

  • The type of crown and the material used
  • The location and complexity of the procedure
  • The number of crowns required
  • Combining the crown with other dental appliances like bridges
  • Supplies and equipment required for your specific treatment

Remember, no dental practice can provide an accurate quote over the phone. Your needs are as unique as your smile. It’s important to consult with a dentist and undergo an oral exam to explore all your treatment options and receive an accurate quote. If you have dental insurance, we will gladly provide you with a quote to submit, allowing you to determine your out-of-pocket costs before making a decision.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental crowns typically last 10-15 years with proper care and maintenance.

The procedure is usually painless due to local anesthesia. Some discomfort may occur after the anesthesia wears off.

Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly.

No, dental crowns cannot be whitened. It’s best to whiten your natural teeth before getting a crown.

A filling repairs a small portion of a tooth, while a crown covers the entire tooth, providing more strength and protection.

Whether a crown is needed after a root canal depends largely on the location of the tooth. Molars and premolars, located towards the back of the mouth and essential for chewing, generally require crowns. In contrast, incisors and canines, which are not primarily used for chewing, may not always need crowns.
