Dental Crown FAQ
Are crowns expensive?
It mainly depends on the type of material used to create your crown. Porcelain is more affordable than zirconia, but will not likely last as long. Most insurance plans will cover at least a portion of the cost of a crown.
What if I find that my crown doesn't feel comfortable after I have had it for a few days?
Get in touch with us and we will arrange to see you as soon as possible in order to make the adjustments needed to make your bite completely comfortable.
Does a crown need special maintenance?
For the most part, no. Just brush twice each day, floss at least once daily, and make sure to visit your dentist at least every six months. However, when you floss, make sure to pull the thread from front to back between your crown and the neighboring tooth, rather than up and down, in order to avoid dislodging your restoration.
