About Dental Crowns in Brentwood, MD

A tooth can be protected and strengthened with a custom dental crown if it’s been worn down or damaged. Also known as a cap, dental crowns are made custom to fit over the affected tooth while matching the color of your smile for a seamless and natural look. MINT dentistry offers custom crowns to protect a weak tooth, treat a large cavity, cover discoloration, and restore a cracked tooth. Our team of board-certified dental professionals uses high-grade porcelain crowns so your result looks natural. We love that our patients have the most gorgeous teeth in Brentwood, MD. Schedule a consultation at our luxurious practice to get more information about how a dental crown can restore your smile and oral health.

Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns have the ability to help in a variety of different dental situations. Dental crowns can be used to keep a tooth (weakened by decay) from breaking or to hold together a cracked tooth. Crowns can be used to improve a tooth that is broken or discolored, mask a tooth that is misshapen, or protect root canal-treated teeth. Our Brentwood, MD dentists also use crowns to treat larger dental cavities, serve as part of a dental bridge, and complete the dental implant process for tooth replacement. At MINT dentistry, our dental crowns are made with top-quality porcelain and placed with advanced technology to help ensure a beautiful result that lasts a long time.

How Do Dental Crowns Work?

Once you settle into one of our luxurious treatment chairs, you’ll be offered a pair of stylish MINT sunglasses and Beats headphones to help you feel comfortable during your procedure. To begin, the treatment area will be prepped with local anesthesia. Other sedation methods may be available to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure if you experience anxiety about the process. Once you're comfortable, your MINT dentist will prepare the tooth by eliminating any areas of decay and remove a portion of the enamel so your dental crown fits snugly. Our team will then capture digital impressions of your prepared teeth (or a dental implant post) that will be used to make your custom crown. A temporary crown will be used to protect your tooth until your custom crown is ready. When your restoration is returned to us, you will need to set up a follow up visit to have it placed. Then, the crown will be attached to your dental implant or cemented to your natural tooth. Once your crown is set, we will adjust the fit so it feels comfortable.

How Can I Care for My Dental Crown?

You’ll be able to leave once your restoration is complete to resume your normal routine if only local anesthesia was used. We will go over the best way to care for your porcelain crown, including what food you shouldn't eat and how to properly clean it. At times, we may recommend that you come back for a bite adjustment after getting a crown to make certain the alignment is ideal. During your oral health exam at MINT dentistry in Brentwood, MD, your dentist will assess your crown and make sure it feels comfortable. Your dentist will let you know when the crown needs to be replaced; however, with good care, a crown can last for many years. If you experience any problems with your crown (e.g., it becomes loose or falls out), contact us for help. Do not attempt to put it back in or repair it because this may lead to a problem, like an infection or improper fit that affects your bite.

The MINT Commitment

Some of the costs for the procedure may be covered for patients using dental insurance. Once we have contacted your insurance company, our office can estimate your remaining bill. During your consultation, we can help you determine the best material for your crown based on your goals and budget. One of our team members will also discuss payment options, including the MINT Discount Plan, to make your treatment more affordable. MINT dentistry in Brentwood, MD is committed to giving all our patients a healthy, attractive smile. Our custom restorations are made with the highest-quality materials available to the dental industry.
