Dental crowns are one of the most common dental restorations performed and can be done in a single visit. They cost between $1,000 – $3,000 per tooth, can last a lifetime when done properly, and can have their cost partially covered by dental insurance. For your convenience, we produce our dental crowns on site in our own laboratory for perfect fitting crowns made in just minutes. Interested in getting a dental crown? Give us a call to get a crown installed today (805) 983-0717.

Purposes of A Dental Crown

A dental crown is a cap that is placed over the existing tooth and is used to protect a weak or broken tooth from further damage, to help replace a filling when most of the tooth has been removed, or is in high risk of being damaged by tooth decay. A dental crown can also be used for cosmetic dentistry purposes, such as covering up a discolored tooth, dental implant, or to protect the remains of a tooth where a root canal was recently performed.

Another common use of dental crowns is to help create a dental bridge, which is a procedure for attaching a replacement tooth to the mouth to cover a gap. The crowns act as support anchors, called “abutments”, for the new tooth, called the “pontic”. The bridge is then placed over the supporting crowns to restore the function and aesthetic look of the missing teeth.

The Different Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are made from different materials depending on the cost and purpose they will serve:

Stainless Steel is used primarily on children and is placed completely over the tooth to prevent decay. Crowns made from stainless steel are cost effective and meant to be temporary, naturally falling out to make way for the permanent tooth.

Porcelain crown over discolored tooth stub

Alloys, like gold or platinum, tend to be long lasting dental crowns that can withstand daily use from chewing and biting. Since they are more noticeable, due to their metallic color, they are used in more conspicuous areas of the mouth like the molars.

Ceramic/Porcelain dental crowns have a natural tooth color and can be used for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. While not as durable as metal, with proper daily oral care, ceramic and porcelain crowns can last a lifetime. Since these crowns have no metal, they are perfect for patients that have a metal allergy.

I have had a lot of procedures including 8 implants. There is no better dentist office than Carson and Carson. Dr. Derek Carson (the son of Dr. Leroy Carson) is FANTASTIC! He has learned well from his father (who still works there). Papa is the MAN!, and has been for years. Insane amount of knowledge. The Doctors are THE BEST! The support staff is fun and professional always. I will never go anywhere else.

A dentist that truly understands how much the whole dental trip petrifies me - and helps me overcome it. For the first time, and certainly not the last, he used nitros oxide and I can honestly say I can look at future visits without abject terror. No more waiting until the tooth needs pulled! I may even get my teeth cleaned.

Dr. Derek, you have a hand and a heart of gold. That spirit of help that you have is praiseworthy. I'm amazed at all the treatment you've done and I feel no pain after, not even the pain of the anesthesia sting, I say with propriety because I am very sensitive to pain. Congratulations on your work that loves what you do so you have been successful, not counting on your last generation machine that I do not know how to explain. Much gratitude, you're the best.
