DENTAL CROWNS TREAT DAMAGED TEETH?
For those who don’t know, dental crowns are essentially caps that go over teeth with dental imperfections. While some teeth are treated with fillings, dental crowns are used to cover more serious imperfections in the size, shape, and strength of the tooth. The crows are bonded to the tooth using cement and fully cover and protect the tooth from further damage. Now, dental crowns come in porcelain and ceramic caps with a tooth-shaped color to alleviate many of the concerns that people used to have about dental crowns.
WHEN ARE DENTAL CROWNS USED?
There are several problems that dental crowns are used to treat. Many patients have large cavities that aren’t effectively treated by a filling. Some teeth have multiple cavities that are difficult to address. Some people also have weak teeth that are prone to fracturing or a tooth that is weaker after a root canal. Some people have traumatic events that lead to chipped teeth. A dental crown can be used to treat all of these problems and more. People should speak with their dentist on a case by case basis to discuss whether or not dental crowns are a viable treatment option.
YOUR APPOINTMENT IS JUST ONE CLICK AWAY
Dental crowns have undergone changes in recent years; however, dental insurance still covers the cost of dental crowns to varying degrees depending on the insurance plan. Some insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost while other insurance plans will cover the cost completely. Patients may be responsible for any of the cost in excess of the coverage of insurance; however, there are monthly specials and coupons that patients can invest in.
HOW DO PEOPLE FINANCE DENTAL CROWN?
For people without dental insurance or those who have reached their limit, there are third party options that will help patients pay for the cost of dental crowns. There are even payment plans put forth by the clinic that people can consider. Contact the offices today to discuss the possibility of dental crowns as a treatment option!.
