About Dental Crowns
To restore and protect chipped teeth, discolored enamel, considerable decay, and different issues, dental crowns sit over the visible portion of the tooth. At DentalWorks Facility One in Brookfield,WI, crowns (also known as caps) are tough, lasting covers that fit closely over the area of the tooth above the gumline 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 protection. Crowns can also be helpful to conceal a different color tooth or adding stability to a dental bridge. Crowns by our dentists at DentalWorks Facility One can be porcelain, ceramic, or metal, according to the location of the crown. The less visible teeth typically are helped by the increased strength of metal, but the front teeth look more natural with porcelain or ceramic crowns, which are dyed to be the same as the patient's natural teeth.
"I will not go to any other place I love Kelli and Dr Adl I used to work with them and I've been their patients. I've seen both sides and they are amazing at what they do. I drive 45 minutes and pass dozens of dental offices but I only feel comfortable with these two. I've had filling I've had extractions done, cleanings and I'm about to be getting Invisalign next week I can't wait."- L.W. / Facebook / Sep 07, 2018

"Had to go for a root canal, which sounds miserable. The dentist put me at ease, made sure I was 100 percent comfortable the whole time, and it was a painless experience. I highly recommend this place, I'm almost looking forward to going back to complete the root canal."- S.S. / Google / May 05, 2018
What to Expect
To make a personalized crown, our dentists first ready the tooth by filing off a slender layer of enamel, and then taking digital X-rays and molds of the tooth, which will be taken to the nearest dental lab. A temporary crown may be used to cover the tooth while the custom crown is being created. As soon as the custom crown is returned to DentalWorks Facility One in Brookfield,WI, our dentists will carefully set and fit the crown on top of the tooth. Our dentists will alter the crown for the most comfortable fit.
Some patients will feel brief tenderness or sensitivity to hot and cold, although for the most part patients will not feel any soreness after the crown is in place. With ideal home care and routine dental exams and cleanings, a dental cap will stay in place for anywhere from 10 - 40 years, depending on the placement and material of the crown. Some patients may have an infection or cavity will grow below the crown, which will need a root canal treatment or a different procedure.
If the dental cap is regarded as essential for the patient's health, dental insurance companies will usually cover part or most of the bill, so our office staff at DentalWorks Facility One in Brookfield,WI will talk with the insurance to estimate their coverage and then the patient's portion of the costs. Estimated billing, payment options, and financing plans are available at our office in Brookfield,WI and can be talked about during the patient's meeting with our dentists.
