Dental Crowns in Lakeview, Chicago

Dental crowns play a pivotal role in preserving and enhancing your oral health. These custom-made, tooth-shaped caps protect and support damaged or weakened teeth, ensuring their longevity while restoring your smile’s beauty and functionality.

Art of Modern Dentistry specializes in dental crowns and other restoration procedures to give you a healthy, rejuvenating smile. Visit us today for dental crowns in Lakeview, Chicago, IL.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration technique using tooth-colored caps to cover a discolored or damaged tooth. For example, a crown can strengthen a weak tooth and restore its look if your tooth decays. It can also make your broken tooth look like a natural tooth if you experience severe dental trauma. Dentist technicians can make crowns from durable materials, like porcelain, to restore your beautiful smile without the risk of cracking, warping, or falling off.

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns help restore the strength, functionality, and appearance of your natural teeth, including

  • Beautify discolored or misshapen teeth

  • Restore broken or worn-down teeth

  • Stabilize dental bridges

  • Cover dental implants

  • Support decayed teeth

We can create temporary crowns for you to use while we finish designing your permanent ones. Either way, these dental crowns match the natural curvature of the teeth, providing a natural look while improving the stability of your remaining teeth.

The Dental Crown Procedure

Preparing and applying a dental crown typically takes two visits to our office. Rest assured, the entire process is quick, comfortable, and painless for most patients.

During the first visit, we take x-rays of your teeth to determine any pre-emptive measures, like a root canal, before applying the crown. We can either build upon the existing tooth structure or file it down so it will hold the crown, depending on its condition.

After reshaping the tooth, we will take and send an impression of it to the lab. This impression helps the dental lab craft the permanent crown so it contours and secures to your tooth. The dental lab will create the crown in two to three weeks. In the meantime, we can fit you with a temporary crown until the permanent one is ready.

At your follow-up appointment, we will remove the temporary crown and secure the permanent one so it fits the shape and color of the rest of your teeth using a carefully applied adhesive. This adhesive cements the tooth to create a uniform look and mouthfeel.

Taking Care of Your New Dental Crowns

Treating your newly placed crowns is simple with a healthy oral hygiene routine. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and floss at least once per day.

As time passes, crowns can become susceptible to wear and tear, causing cracking and breaking. For this reason, we recommend you avoid chewing ice and other hard food items.

Are There Any Risks?

Some risks come with new dental crowns, including

  • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods within days following your procedure

  • Bacterial decay

  • Infection

  • Chipped or cracked teeth

  • Bite Issues

  • Gum Irritation

If you experience these issues, immediately contact Art of Modern Dentistry. Although you can minimize the risks and ensure long-lasting results with proper oral hygiene, we can inspect the crown and address any impacts or intrusions affecting the rest of your teeth.

What Do Dental Crowns Cost?

The cost of a dental crown procedure varies depending on your individual dental needs and the details of the procedure. On average, a dental crown in Lakeview, Chicago, costs between $800 to $3,000 per tooth.

At Art of Modern Dentistry, we work with most insurance companies and payment plan services to help our customers afford their necessary treatment. We also offer in-house financing plans for a more affordable visit.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
