Dental Crowns

Damaged or decayed teeth can cause pain and embarrassment. These conditions require prompt treatment.

Dental crowns can cover damaged or decayed teeth to provide a stronger bite and more pleasing smile.

At Navid Family Dental & Associates in Peabody, MA, our dentists provide durable and natural-looking dental crowns. Are dental crowns right for you?

Treatment Benefits

Cosmetic Improvement

Teeth with significant damage or decay can cause you to hide your smile all the time. Our crowns are made from natural-looking materials like porcelain that can restore your smile and renew your confidence.

Durable Result

Every dental crown is designed to be as durable as a natural tooth. When a permanent crown is attached, you should be able to eat all of your favorite foods without worry. With proper care, crowns can last for a decade or more.

Lasting Protection

When a tooth is decayed or infected, we can address the issue with root canal treatment and then place a crown over the tooth. The crown will protect the tooth from further damage and potentially prevent the need for extraction.

What Are Dental Crowns?

When referring to oral anatomy, the crown of a tooth is the portion that is visible above the gum line. Dental crowns are restorations that either partially or fully cover this part of a natural tooth. Crafted from biocompatible materials like metal, porcelain, or zirconia, crowns are tooth-shaped and can be supported by natural teeth or dental implants.

What Can Dental Crowns Do?

Decayed tooth
Treat Large Areas of Decay

While small cavities can be repaired with dental fillings, crowns are often necessary when decay affects a significant portion of a tooth.

Chipped teeth
Cover Fractured Cusps

Chips, breaks, and fractures weaken the structure of a tooth. A dental crown can reinforce the tooth and help prevent further damage.

Chipped tooth
Address Cracked Tooth Syndrome

This condition occurs when internal fractures lead to pain while chewing. In some instances, a crown can stabilize the tooth and halt the problem from progressing.

Dental x-ray
Protect Teeth Damaged by Bruxism

Habitual teeth grinding or clenching can cause significant wear and tear. Crowns can protect teeth affected by bruxism and reduce the risk of additional issues.

Dental implant
Restore Dental Implants

In addition to restoring natural teeth, crowns can also be attached to dental implants, achieving completely restored function and lifelike results.

Infected root canal
Seal Root Canals

If the pulp of a tooth is infected, root canal therapy may be necessary. In many cases, a crown is needed to reinforce the damaged tooth and restore your bite to full function.

Enhance Your Appearance

Crowns can be used to cosmetically enhance your smile. These restorations can address chips, cracks, discoloration, and more.

The Dental Crown Procedure

In most cases, patients can expect to complete their treatment in two office visits. Treatment steps typically include:
Step 1: ​Local Anesthesia

Before beginning the dental crown procedure, the dentist completely numbs the affected tooth and surrounding gums and other tissue.

Step 2: Preparing the Tooth

Next, small amounts of enamel are removed. This creates space for your new restoration and allows your natural tooth to serve as an anchor.

Step 3: Impressions

Once the tooth is prepared, our dentist will take impressions and send them to a dental lab. In some cases, impressions are also taken before the tooth is prepared.

Step 4: Temporary Restoration

While your final crown is being made, a temporary crown can be placed over the affected tooth. This will maintain your appearance and minimize sensitivity.

Step 5: Crown Fabrication

A trained dental technician will create your custom crown using high-quality materials like porcelain. This process generally takes between two to four weeks.

Step 6: Placement of Final Crown

Lastly, we will schedule a second appointment. Our dentist will first remove the temporary crown and then secure your final restoration.

I started going there since 2017. They are very nice and very flexible on your schedule as well as insurance. They always remind me of my cleaning schedule and do the check up and share all the data with me. One of things I like the most, when I was working with Dr. Navid was the fairness in the evaluation and prioritizing what needs to be done first. Plus the quality of work was awesome, he pay attention to the finest detail.

Crowns and Dental Implants

dental implants
Dental Implant with a Dental Crown

Our Peabody dentists and periodontist have extensive experience with implant dentistry. Dental implants are a great treatment option for patients with a missing tooth. They are titanium rods that replace tooth roots and serve as support for restorations like crowns, bridges, or dentures.

When a patient is missing a single tooth, or a few non-adjacent teeth, the restoration attached to an implant is often a dental crown. Our implant-supported crowns are made of natural-looking porcelain that restores the appearance of your smile and the strength of your bite. We provide both temporary crowns to cover the implant while the gums are healing, and permanent crowns that can last for decades.

What Do Dental Crowns Cost?

On average, the cost of a crown at our practice can range from $500 to $2,000. We offer financing through CareCredit® and LendingClub® to help patients cover out-of-pocket costs. Because of the durability and longevity of dental crowns, most patients agree that the investment is more than worth the cost.
