Dental crowns play an important role in both general and restorative dentistry. These caps, made of porcelain, are extremely beneficial for patients who need to strengthen a weakened tooth, cover a cosmetic imperfection, restore a dental implant, or repair a chipped or cracked tooth. Drs. Thomas Rolfes and Christina Do at Smiles4OC in Costa Mesa can help patients repair their smiles with affordable dental crowns.
Dental crowns are custom restorations made for patients using impressions of the prepared teeth. The dentist will relay instructions to the dental laboratory making these restorations regarding size, shape, and color of the ceramic. This ensures the crown will blend in with the smile when bonded in place.
Preparation of the tooth for dental crowns requires that the enamel be filed down. This reduces the bulk that might otherwise be added when the crown is placed. This is done with local anesthetics to ensure comfort for the patient, but the placement of the crown often does not require anesthetics as the ceramic piece is just bonded over the natural tooth structure.
Dental crowns are very affordable. Patients who have dental insurance plans may enjoy coverage from their plan that can reduce the cost or cover it altogether. If patients need assistance with their out-of-pocket costs even after dental insurance has been applied, our team can discuss financing to ensure that patients do not go without the dental solutions they need to improve the health, function, and beauty of their smiles. We take oral health seriously and want our patients to have access to the services they need to ensure a healthy smile for life.

We are happy to assist both children and adults in and around the community of Costa Mesa.
