"Dental Crowns are a predictable way to prevent cracked teeth and deep cavities from getting into the nerve, if we can catch them early enough."
- Dr. Rouse
Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?
The Top 6 Reasons Dental Crowns are Indicated for Restoring a Tooth Are:
- To Strengthen a Tooth That is Broken – If you fractured or broke part of your tooth off you may have the ability to prolong the life of your tooth to withstand chewing forces going forward.
- To Support a Tooth With a Large Filling When Little Natural Tooth Structure Remains – If your tooth has a large filling greater than 2/3 the width, you may be at risk for fracture of the thinner portions of biting surface of your tooth with thin enamel at the periphery.
- Preventing Root Canals – A tooth that receives a crown prior to toothache is less likely to needing Root Canal Therapy, saving you money and double the time in the dental chair.
- To Complete a Dental Implant – A Dental Crown is placed on top of the Dental Abutment after your Dental Implant has integrated with the your bone, called “osseointegration”.
- To Improve a Misshapen or Congenitally Small Tooth (Peg Laterals)- Some people are born without adult teeth under baby teeth, or small teeth that run in the family. This can be corrected with Dental Crowns.
- Restoring a Tooth to Proper Bite and Chewing Function -While repairing your damaged tooth structure if you have a chipped or broken tooth with a crack, a dental crown can restore a tooth to work as a pair with your opposing tooth to chew food and help your other teeth not be excessively used.

DENTAL CROWN F.A.Q.'S
Dental crowns are commonly called "caps" and are placed on top of teeth after cracks and cavities have been removed. Dental Crowns are cover and restore the function and shape of your teeth when the damage to a tooth is too great that a dental filling would cause the tooth to split even further from a wedge-like effect.
If you have a very hard or heavy bite or teeth crowding, your dentist may recommend a dental crown if a filling would replace more that 1/3 to 2/3 of the width of the tooth.
Dental crowns can be made out of Gold (variety of other metals included with the gold for different wearing properties), porcelain, lithium disilicate (EMAX) and solid zirconia oxide (Zirconia). PFM (or porcelain fused to metal) and "All Porcelain" Zirconia Oxide dental crowns are the most popular in the United States in 2020.
Depending on which tooth is being crowned (ethetic front tooth or functional back tooth) the material a dental crown is made out of, lab costs to the dentist may vary. Dental Patients with contracted in-network fees will have providers that honor the fees set by the insurance company. However, dental crowns in Texas range from $700 to $1800 typically.
We start by evaluating your jaw joint and do an analysis of your bite.
If you suffer from a "Bad Bite" or a malocclusion, and have already had the tooth patched prior with a filling that is greater thatn 1/3 to 2/3 the width of the tooth, we recommend preventing future root canal therapy and potential extraction in the future, which doubles to triples the cost.
We strongly recommend All-Zirconia Crowns for posterior, or back teeth, and Lithium Disilicate EMAX Crowns for Front Teeth. Metal Crowns have the variable of all of the trace elements that may cause allergic reactions to some patients' gums. We pride ourselves on being a "Metal-Free" Dental Office.
Dental Crowns are cemented in with a permanent glue.
Temporary crowns are cemented with a specific cement to make them easier to get off when the dentist is ready to cement the final crown.
At our office, once your crown is cemented, it should not come off.
