Dental Crowns

A broken, decayed, or infected tooth can lead to painful side effects and may even require extraction without treatment. 

Our dentists can repair tooth damage and improve the appearance of your smile with natural-looking porcelain crowns.

Why do patients in Layton, Murray, Lehi, and Bountiful, UT, choose our practice for dental crowns?

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 in Bountiful, Layton, Murray, and Lehi for the following reasons:
Supporting a weakened tooth structure or a tooth with a large filling

Anchoring bridgework to adjacent teeth

Restoring the appearance of misshapen, chipped, or discolored teeth

Capping and sealing a tooth after a root canal

Fixing malocclusion, or a bad bite

Dental crowns can even replace missing teeth!

Restore Your Smile and 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 Utah offices have training in dental implants and will be happy to discuss your candidacy at your next appointment.

My dentist Dr. Blume took great care of me. I had fillings and a temporary crown put in recently. He was very personable and made sure to check on me after my appointment. I made a follow-up appointment to adjust my bite because of my crown. Andrea helped to reshape and polish my crown. She did an excellent job and addressed my concerns with care. I can tell she is detail oriented and personable. Overall, great experience!

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:

Consultation 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 restorations 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.
