About Dental Crowns
To repair and restore chipped teeth, discolored enamel, considerable decay, and different issues, dental crowns sit over the visible portion of the tooth. At Reunion Dental Care in Commerce City, CO, crowns (also known as caps) are tough, lasting covers that fit closely on top of the the visible area of the tooth to cover where a dental cavity is too sizeable to be fixed with a regular filling or if a tooth is damaged and must have a shield. Crowns may also be helpful to conceal a different color tooth as well as adding stability to a bridge. Crowns by our dentists at Reunion Dental Care may be porcelain, metal, or ceramic, according to the placement of the crown. The posterior teeth typically are helped by the increased durability of metal, but the front teeth look more natural with ceramic or porcelain crowns that are dyed to be the same as the patient's natural teeth.

"The customer service is excellent: the staff is so welcoming and kind. I had two visits already and each time, I felt well taken care off. Each office staff, technician or specialist really know they are doing. I really felt like their goal was to get me the best for my problem and my situation, rather than getting the most that the insurance can: that's the culture of people before profit. I've never felt so happy to be at a dentist appointment; I'm looking forward to my next one."- F.N. / Google / Feb 19, 2020

What to Expect
To make a personalized crown, our dentists initially ready the tooth by filing off a slender layer of enamel, and then taking dental X-rays and molds of the tooth that will be taken to the nearest dental lab. A temporary cap may be used to cover the tooth while the permanent crown is being sculpted. As soon as the permanent crown is returned to Reunion Dental Care in Commerce City, CO, our dentists will expertly secure and fit the crown on top of the tooth. Our dentists will alter the cap for the patient's best fit.
Some patients will feel brief tenderness or sensitivity to hot and cold, although nearly all patients will not feel any soreness after the cap is finalized. With ideal at-home care and routine dental cleanings and examinations, a dental cap will stay in place for anywhere from 10 - 40 years, based on the position and material of the cap. Some patients may have a bacterial infection or cavity will form below the crown, which will need a root canal treatment or a different procedure.
When the dental cap is regarded as necessary for the patient's health, dental insurance policies typically pay some of the bill, so our office staff at Reunion Dental Care in Commerce City, CO will talk with the insurance to estimate their coverage and then the patient's portion of the expenses. Estimated billing, payment methods, and financing options are accepted at our office in Commerce City, CO and can be talked about at the patient's consultation with our dentists.
