Dental Crowns Q & A

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a cap shaped like a tooth that's placed over your natural tooth to improve its appearance, size, shape, and strength.

Dr. Atli uses a mold to copy the shape of your original tooth and then cements the new crown into place, making the space look better than it did before.

Why get a dental crown?  

Dental crowns are designed and fitted when your own tooth is too weak or discolored. You might need a dental crown for several reasons, including:

  • Protecting or replacing a decayed or broken tooth
  • Supporting and covering a tooth that has a large filling and no longer has much enamel
  • Holding a dental bridge in place
  • Hiding very discolored teeth or teeth that are misshapen
  • Covering a dental implant
  • Improving the look of your own teeth

What are the steps needed for dental crowns?

At the first visit, Dr. Atli will take X-rays to examine the roots that will house the dental crown. If there is an infection in the tooth’s pulp, he may first do a root canal to eliminate it.

After giving you an anesthetic, Dr. Atli will file your tooth down to prepare for the crown and use a soft material to make a mold that he sends to a dental laboratory.

Dr. Atli instructs the lab to use Emax, the material he prefers for crowns. Since it can take two or three weeks to mold your permanent crown, he will put a temporary crown over your tooth to protect it in the meantime.

How much do dental crowns cost?

Dr. Atli can beat anyone’s price -- and schedule -- on dental crowns in the Mission Viejo area. Dr. Atli can fit ten crowns in your mouth in a single day using Emax, the strongest and best material for dental crowns. While other practices in the area charge $800 per crown, Dr. Atli charges just $500 for each crown he makes and fits onto your teeth.
