Steve’s Dental Crowns—North Palm Beach, FL
Why Steve Chose to Get Dental Crowns with Juno Beach Smiles
Why Steve Wanted to Change His Smile
Steve had been going to Juno Beach Smiles since 1999, so he already trusted the team, but he was still really nervous when he needed to have several of his teeth restored. They, in his words, “were worn down and looked awful.” Before treatment began, the team was able to calm his fears by outlining the process step by step and answering all of his questions, of which he admits there were probably too many! These days, Steve enjoys the not too rare compliments he gets about his smile, and he feels comfortable eating whatever he wants now that he’s “worked them (his crowns) over” in the past few years.
Why Steve Got Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are a very versatile type of dental restoration that can help repair a severely decayed or damaged tooth while also renewing its form and appearance. They can be made of a variety of materials, and Steve was able to get natural-looking porcelain crowns along his upper and lower teeth. In the end, they gave him the best of everything—a confident appearance as well as strength and security in daily life.
Dental Crowns FAQs
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to protect it as well as help it look and function like new again. Once the decayed or broken portion of enamel is removed, a crown is bonded on top so that it looks and feels like nothing was wrong with the tooth in the first place.
How long does it take to get a dental crown?
In most cases, it requires at least two appointments to design, fabricate, and place a dental crown into a patient’s mouth. With a more comprehensive case like Steve’s which involved most of the teeth, a preliminary consultation appointment might be necessary so the treatment can be properly planned and the patient can get all the information they need before proceeding.
How much does a dental crown cost?
The cost of a dental crown can vary somewhat depending on the size and location of the restoration. A larger crown intended to mostly replace a tooth’s enamel will cost more than a smaller one. And, crowning a front tooth tends to be more expensive compared to the back teeth due to cosmetic concerns. When you come to see us for a consultation, we’ll be sure to outline every aspect of your treatment, including the cost and how we can use dental insurance/financing to make everything more affordable.
