Dental crowns are a versatile restorative dental treatment that can protect damaged teeth, cover tooth discoloration, restore worn teeth, or cover dental implants. Dr. Keith Boenning and Dr. Nathan Dancykier provide dental crowns in Towson, Maryland. Dr. Boenning and Dr. Dancykier specialize in prosthodontics, which means they help patients replace missing teeth and protect and restore damaged teeth. Dental crowns are one of the most popular prosthodontic treatments because they strengthen weakened or damaged teeth and cap off dental implants. Receiving a dental crown helps to balance the bite and prevent further damage to already weakened teeth.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Crowns?
Many patients are able to receive dental crowns, even if they have tooth decay or gum disease. We can provide treatments for dental problems before dental crown treatment. Dental crowns require intact tooth roots or enough bone tissue for a dental implant. If you have missing teeth that will be replaced with an implant and capped off with a dental crown, we can help. We offer bone and tissue grafting to ensure that you have enough support for an implant and crown.
Receiving Dental Crowns
Dr. Boenning and Dr. Dancykier work with patients to create a treatment plan tailored to their dental concerns. If a dental implant is a part of your oral health treatment plan, we will surgically place the implant and wait for it to fully heal and integrate with the jaw bone. Once the dental implant is healed, we will design the dental crown, which is fabricated in a lab. An abutment will be attached to the implant and used to anchor your permanent dental crown. If patients are receiving a single or several dental crowns to protect damaged teeth, we will secure it to the tooth for a more even and stable bite. We always ensure that our restorations are comfortable and fit precisely.
How Much Do Dental Crowns Cost?
The cost of your dental crown or crowns will vary depending on where they are in the mouth, the material they are made of, and how many dental crowns you require. Some insurance companies cover dental crown treatment, and we will help you submit your claim and help you determine your coverage before your care. Dr. Boenning or Dr. Dancykier will help you determine the cost of your treatment when they create your treatment plan.
Inlays and Onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays are indirect tooth fillings bonded onto damaged teeth. Inlays and onlays help to strengthen teeth and protect them from damage and decay. An inlay fits between the cusps, or outer edges of a tooth and an onlay covers one or more of the tooth cusps. Both inlays and onlays are stain-resistant and easy to maintain.
