Dental Crown after Root Canal in Knoxville TN Area

Patients can repair damage after infection, decay, and root canal therapy with restorations such as dental crowns.

Below are some commonly asked questions we hear about dental crowns for the smile at our facility.

What are dental crowns?

Our team describes dental crowns as a variety of dental restoration used to cover the entire visible part of a tooth. They can restore a broken or severely damaged tooth, improve its appearance, and provide additional strength and support. Crowns can also replace missing teeth in conjunction with bridgework or implants.

How much do dental crowns cost?

The costs associated with a dental crown can vary greatly depending on the type of material used and the complexity of the procedure. Generally speaking, porcelain-based crowns are more expensive than metal-based ones. Additionally, your insurance provider may cover some or all of the costs associated with getting a dental crown. When you visit our practice to find out if you are a proper candidate for dental crowns, our front office team can assess your insurance plan to help you understand your coverage. This can reduce your out-of-pocket costs.

What are the different types of dental crowns?

Most dental crowns are made from a variety of materials, including metal alloys, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), ceramics, and resin. Each material has pros and cons, and your dentist at Sequoyah Dental Arts can help you select the best option for your needs. Many of our patients use porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal because of their natural appearance within the smile.

How long does it take to obtain a dental crown?

The process of getting a dental crown usually takes two office visits. During your first visit, our team will prepare the tooth to receive the crown and make an impression of your mouth. This impression is used to create your permanent crown in our dental lab. Your permanent restoration will be placed and checked for fit, shape, and color at your second appointment. With proper attention and care, a dental crown can provide long-term protection for your smile, lasting over a decade.
