Perfectly seamless tooth restoration

A dental crown is a “cap” which is placed over a tooth that has been broken, treated by root canal, stained, damaged by decay, or is misshapen. Individually crafted and custom-fitted dental crowns blend in with the tone and contour of your natural teeth and can last for more than 15 years. Sometimes crowns are also used to hold a dental bridge or top off a dental implant or they may be applied for certain cosmetic modifications or aesthetic purposes.

What’s the process of getting a crown?

A dental crown procedure usually requires two office visits and is performed by a dentist.

Here is how we go about it:

Examining and preparing the tooth

As with any other kind of dental treatment, everything starts with the dental examination, during which the doctor will check and clean your teeth so they are prepared for an easy fit. If the tooth is broken or severely damaged by decay, we will remove the damaged areas so the dental crown can do its work protecting the tooth from further decay.

Shaping the Crown

Next, with the help of dental putty, we will take an impression of your teeth that will be used to construct full porcelain crowns. You will then be provided with a temporary dental crown that will be fitted onto your teeth until your following appointment. If you are missing a tooth and wish to replace it with a dental implant, we will take an impression of the implant and the surrounding teeth. Our lab will use the impression to manufacture your own custom crown.

Placing the Crown

At your second appointment, we will remove your temporary crown and replace it with a permanent crown. The crown will be secured using durable dental cement or a hidden screw. To complete the process, we will polish your crown and make any necessary adjustments to ensure your comfort and security.

Cost of Dental Crowns in North York

The out-of-pocket cost for a dental crown can vary widely from patient to patient. With a typical insurance plan a single crown averages out to about $200 to $600+. Without insurance, a reasonable ball-park figure for a crown would be about $800 to $1200 and up. To get your mouth looking and feeling normal again, most people feel that a dental crown is an easy decision but the cost may still give you pause.

    So what goes into determining the cost of a dental crown?
  • The type of crown and the material that is used.
  • The location and complexity of the procedure.
  • The number of crowns that may be required.
  • Combining the crown with other dental appliances like bridges.
  • Supplies and equipment that are required for your specific treatment.

Remember, no dental practice can provide an accurate quote over the phone. Ultimately, your needs are as unique as your smile. It’s important to speak with a dentist and undergo an oral exam to find out all your treatment options and to receive an accurate quote. If you have dental insurance, we would be happy to supply you with a quote to submit to them so you can find out your out-of-pocket costs before you make a decision.

Contact us today

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Needing a crown after a root canal depends highly on the location of the tooth in the mouth—teeth towards the back of the mouth like molars and premolars are needed more for chewing, and generally require crowns, where incisors or canines which aren't needed for chewing don't always require crowns.
One difference between a crown vs filling is that a crown is much more durable for teeth with a large biting surface. Repeated pressure from chewing or from habitual clenching can cause fillings on the biting surfaces of molars to chip or come loose. A crown, being a single unbroken surface from gumline to gumline, is designed to take much more force over a longer period of time.
Dental crowns play two important roles in your mouth. First and foremost, they completely restore the function of your tooth which means you can close your teeth and chew without pain or discomfort or without having to compensate by chewing on one side. Secondarily (but also important!) crowns are designed to blend in with your natural teeth. That means they are coloured and contoured to match your aesthetic. In fact, sometimes people forget altogether which tooth is the crown.
A post isn’t quite a dental implant (which is surgically implanted in the jaw bone) but it is exactly what it sounds like: a medical-grade post that may be cemented into a prepared root-canal to reinforce the base and core of a dental crown. Dental posts are only used if there isn’t enough healthy tooth left over to reliably hold a crown.
Depending on the state of your tooth, getting a crown can feel a bit like getting a filling. We take our time to patiently numb the area and then use freezing as necessary so the preparation of your tooth isn’t painful. You may feel a little sensitivity or some soreness in the gums around the tooth for a short period of time following your procedure. If you feel anxious about visiting the dentist, let us know! We would love to put your mind at ease and make your experience as comfortable as possible.
In most cases, dental crowns can last up to 15 years. However, if they are properly maintained, they can last for 25-30 years.
A dental crown is maintained just like a natural tooth. Regular brushing and flossing keep your dental crown - and the supporting gum around it - healthy and clean. Regular cleanings and checkups at your dentist are essential to your oral health.
