Dental Crowns

A broken, decayed, or infected tooth can lead to painful side effects. Without treatment, you may even require a tooth extraction.

Porcelain crowns can repair tooth damage and improve the appearance of your smile with natural-looking results.

Our dentists in Layton, Murray, Lehi, and Bountiful, UT, can place a dental crown to eliminate your pain and enhance your smile.

Great Results and a Comfortable Experience

"Though the thought of having one’s tooth prepped for a crown is an inherently harrowing prospect, Dr Kershaw and Heidi made the actual experience far more bearable than imagined. They were both attuned to making the process as pleasant for me as possible and were flexible and accommodating to assure that I would not be stressed in any way. All went well and I’m now sporting a lovely temporary crown!" Stubbs Dental patient Jill Howell

What Do Porcelain Crowns Look Like?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover the entire outer layer of a damaged tooth. They are made from strong, enamel-colored porcelain designed to protect your teeth from future damage.
While crowns can be made of a variety of substances, we find that porcelain produces the best cosmetic and functional results. Our crowns look virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Porcelain dental crowns serve many purposes in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry. We often recommend porcelain crowns to patients who visit our Bountiful, Layton, Murray, and Lehi office locations for the following reasons:

A Weakened Tooth

A dental crown can support a weakened tooth structure to enhance the tooth's appearance and functionality and prevent further damage.

To Anchor Teeth

A dental crown can anchor bridgework to adjacent teeth to keep your restoration in place. This is a good option for people who are missing a tooth.

To Restore Appearance

A porcelain crown can restore the appearance of a misshapen, chipped, or discolored tooth. Once placed, it looks indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

To Cap a Tooth

A crown is a great way to cap or seal a tooth that has undergone a dental procedure like a root canal. The dental crown protects the remaining tooth structure and prevents further damage.

Improve Dental Function

A crown can cover a misshapen tooth to eliminate malocclusion, a bad bite. Malocclusion can lead to more severe dental problems like temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ). 

The Types Of Dental Crowns

Temporary Crowns

While your permanent crowns are fabricated at our on-site lab, you will be fitted with temporary crowns. Temporary crowns are less durable than your permanent restorations, but they can protect your tooth until your permanent crown is ready. Temporary crowns are made to last between one and two weeks. 

Ask Us About Temporary Crowns

Permanent Crowns

Our permanent crowns are made with IPS e.max and zirconia porcelain to offer long-lasting and natural-looking results. These materials are highly durable and can be color matched to look indistinguishable from your natural teeth. With proper care, these porcelain crowns can last for more than 15 years.

Implant-Supported Crowns

You can restore your smile and your oral health with implant-supported crowns. While traditional dental crowns protect a damaged tooth, implant-supported crowns will actually replace a missing tooth altogether. Implant-supported crowns do more than just fill the gap in your smile. The dental implants act like tooth roots, preventing jawbone recession, maintaining your facial appearance, and securely supporting crowns. Several dentists at our Bountiful, Layton, Murray, and Lehi, UT, offices have training in dental implants and will be happy to discuss your candidacy at your next appointment.

Dental Implants  Create a Smile That Lasts

/

Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone and are a permanent solution to a missing tooth or teeth. They offer a sturdy base for any dental restoration while preventing jawbone atrophy or other oral health issues. While your crown may one day need replacing, your dental implant will last a lifetime.

How Much Do Dental Crowns Cost? Affordable Treatment With Flexible Payment Options

person paying with a credit card

Our custom porcelain dental crowns start at $599. In most cases, your dental insurance will cover some if not all of your treatment expenses. We accept most major insurance plans and will work directly with your provider to maximize your benefits.

If you don't have insurance, do not worry. We happily accept low-interest financing through companies such as CareCredit® and LendingClub®, as well as several local credit unions. Treatment costs should never get in the way of your dental care, and our friendly staff will help you coordinate a payment plan that works for your budget. 

Dental Crown Timeline

The process for getting a custom porcelain dental crown at our offices in Bountiful, Layton, Lehi, and Murray, UT, can usually be completed in two appointments. Here is what you can expect during treatment:

Our dentists can provide sedation to help especially anxious patients stay relaxed throughout their procedure.

Appointment and Design

One of our dentists will first examine your teeth to determine whether you need a dental crown. After developing an appropriate treatment plan, we will take several highly accurate molds that will be used to design and construct your custom restoration. If you'd like, we can show you how crowns fit on a model bite.

Tooth Preparation

After using either local anesthetic or sedation dentistry, our dentist will prepare your tooth by removing all bacteria and decay. This may require a root canal if an infection is present within the tooth's inner chamber. Our dentist will shape the outer layer of surface enamel to properly accommodate your crown.

Temporary Crown

We will fit your tooth with a temporary crown that you will wear while your permanent crown is created. Just be careful when eating, brushing, and flossing, as temporary crowns are not as durable as their permanent counterparts.

Construction

Our dentists will design the shape, color, and size of your dental crown so that it blends in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. The designs are then taken to our in-house lab, where skilled technicians will craft your crown from solid porcelain.

Placement

During your second appointment, the temporary crown will be removed. Our dentists will clean your tooth once more before checking the appearance and fit of your permanent dental crown. Once satisfied, we will secure the restoration to your tooth with special dental cement.

Maintaining Your Porcelain Crown

Caring for porcelain crowns is actually quite easy. By following these simple tips, you can keep your restoration strong and functional for the next decade or more...

Be Mindful Of What You Eat

Avoid eating especially hard or sticky foods or chewing ice. These activities can damage and dislodge your dental crown. 

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Make sure to practice good oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing, just like you do for your natural teeth. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste to prevent scratching the porcelain.  

Attend Regular Check-Ups

During your biannual dental exam at our offices in Bountiful, Layton, Murray, and Lehi, our dentists can make sure that your crown is in good condition and providing the necessary protection. 

Minimize Wear

Patients that suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding) should consider wearing a night guard to avoid wearing down their dental crown. You should also refrain from habits like opening packages with your teeth and biting your nails. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Crowns

Is getting a dental crown painful?

When performed by an experienced dentist like the dentists at Stubbs Dental, your crown procedure should be virtually painless. During tooth preparation, we use a local anesthetic to numb the area so you shouldn't feel any pain. If you are anxious about your treatment, talk with our dentists about sedation dentistry options.

Should I get a dental crown or veneers?

Dental crowns are the best option for a severely damaged tooth caused by trauma or decay. The remaining tooth structure will need to be protected to prevent further damage or infection. In that case, a dental crown will need to be placed.

Dental veneers are a great option for patients looking to cosmetically upgrade their smile. These patients should have little to no structural damage to their teeth and only be experiencing aesthetic issues.

Can my tooth still decay under a crown?

When not cared for properly, the tooth under a crown can still harbor bacteria, which can lead to a cavity. That is why it is crucial to maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing twice daily, flossing once daily, and coming in for routine cleanings every six months. Our dentists at our Bountiful, Layton, Murray, and Lehi, UT, locations can check your crown to ensure there is no damage and that the structure is healthy.

Can my dental crown be whitened?

Unfortunately, dental crowns, like any dental restoration, cannot be whitened. Your dentist can help you pick the right shade of crown that will match your teeth and leave you with a beautiful smile.

That said, contact our dental care offices if you want a whiter smile after your crowns have been placed. Our dentists can talk about our many cosmetic dentistry options and come up with a solution that best fits your cosmetic goals.
