Dental Crowns ​in Sauganash, Edgebrook, Forest Glen, Chicago, IL: Quality Tooth Restoration That Lasts for Years

If a large portion of a tooth needs to be removed due to severe damage or decay, then a basic filling won’t be good enough to repair the tooth. Instead, your dentist might recommend placing a tooth crown as a restoration that protects the remaining portion of the tooth.

This “cap”, also known as a tooth cap or dental cap, covers a portion of the tooth or the entire tooth, depending on your unique needs. The good news is that a quality crown will last for years and help you avoid tooth extraction.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Tooth Crown?

If less-invasive dental treatments aren’t sufficient, you might be a good candidate for a dental crown. Our team always prioritizes minimally-invasive services whenever possible. For example, we understand the benefits of a small tooth filling right now to stop decay and prevent the need for a major restoration, such as a dental crown, in the future.

Here are a few signs that you might be a good candidate for a crown restoration:

  • A tooth needs to be strengthened after a root canal
  • The tooth is broken or cracked
  • A large portion of the tooth is decayed and needs to be removed
  • You want to improve the appearance of the tooth
  • The crown attaches a bridge to a healthy tooth
  • A dental restoration is being placed on the abutment of a dental implant
  • A weakened tooth needs to be strengthened to avoid dental extraction

Each patient is unique, so it’s best to consult our nearby team for a personalized treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many years will a dental crown last?

If you regularly brush and floss at home, then your crown can last at least 15 to 20 years… or even longer! We use quality, durable materials to ensure long-lasting results.

How is dental technology used to design a crown?

We can take a digital scan of the tooth, then use technology to create a customized cap that will fit over the remaining portion of the tooth. This custom-fit solution will look and feel natural in your mouth.

How is the tooth prepared for a crown?

Before customizing the design of the crown, it’s necessary to prepare the surface of the tooth. The dentist will drill away any decay or damaged areas. Then the tooth is ready for crown placement.

Does insurance cover the cost of dental crowns?

Every insurance plan is unique, so it’s smart to look at your coverage to anticipate out-of-pocket costs. Most insurance companies will pay for a portion of the treatment.
