What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a “cap” for a tooth that is used to help improve a tooth’s strength, shape or appearance. Dental crowns most often completely surround the visible part of a tooth. With proper dental exams and cleanings, crowns can last 5-15 years.

The most common material used to make a dental crown is porcelain, however, gold and other metallic alloys may also be used, depending on your situation. Dental crowns are similar in function to dental veneers, and Dr. Bladen DDS will determine which is needed based on chewing placement, tooth structure, and tooth function.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown may be prescribed at our West Jordan dental office by Dr. Bladen for a number of reasons, including but not limited to:

  • Protection of a decayed, cracked or broken tooth
  • Support a tooth after it is cracked or had a large dental filling
  • Restore misshapen, worn-down, or severely discolored tooth
  • Complete a root canal treatment
  • Cover a dental implant or dental bridge

Dental Crown Cost

The cost of dental crowns is based on a number of variables such as if the tooth is in the front or back of the mouth, the complexity of the treatment, and crown material. At your dental visit, our receptionist will go over costs with you.

We accept most dental insurances to help offset the cost of dental crowns. Additionally, Dr. Bladen DDS offers patients who do not have dental insurance an interest free payment plan option through CareCredit. This allows you to have your dental crown placed with no up-front costs and then to make a monthly payment on the amount owed.
