What Are Dental Crowns?
In a number of cases, teeth that have incurred significant tooth decay or damage can be restored with a crown restoration. Our patient-friendly dental office is pleased to offer crown restorations to Hamburg, PA patients to reestablish a more natural function and appearance. Crown restorations are designed to blend seamlessly with your teeth and may be used to treat teeth that are fractured, have tooth decay, are oddly shaped, or have additional forms of damage. Dental restorations might also be merged into a unit to create a dental bridge or can be connected to a single implant to treat teeth that are missing. Book a consultation with our dental team at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to decide whether a custom dental crown is right for you.
Dental Crowns Reviews
"Dr Dando has been my dentist for over 20 years. Last week, I needed an emergency root canal and was in severe pain. He got me in immediately and took care of it. He makes dental procedures nearly painless. His crowns and caps are works of art! His staff is very friendly and professional. I highly recommend."- S.M. / Google / Dec 10, 2019
"Dr. Dando and team get 5+ stars. Great with kids and adults, they provide comprehensive, top notch care. My child and I have been going to Dr. Dando since 2014. Regular six- monthly checkups including hygienist, dentist, implants, crowns, etc. not to mention fast response in an emergency (dry socket is no fun). Prices are average and sometimes even less depending on what you are having done. Don’t go anywhere else."- L.B. / Google / Jan 18, 2022

Who is a good candidate for a tooth Crown?
Hamburg, PA patients can benefit greatly from a dental crown. Some of the more prevalent reasons for performing a crown procedure would be if you have a tooth that has cracks or fractures, or tooth erosion or enamel wear, moderate tooth decay, failed fillings, or need to restore a dental implant. At Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, tooth crowns are utilized for teeth in the back and front of the mouth and could be crafted from high-grade ceramic or other types of cosmetic materials. Our qualified dental professionals can take a look at your teeth and help you determine the right type of dental crown procedure for your goals.
How is a dental crown placed?
When you have a dental crown procedure scheduled, it is common for you to have the treatment completed in two separate appointments. For the first visit, our dental professionals at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will administer a local anesthetic to the tooth. When the damaged tooth structure has been eliminated, an impression of the tooth will be captured and used by a professional dental laboratory to make your custom dental crown. A provisional dental crown will be worn on your tooth to uphold function and a lifelike appearance during the time the crown is being constructed. We will have you come back into our Hamburg, PA office a few weeks later so that you can have the temporary removed and your custom dental restoration connected to your tooth or implant.
How do I properly care for my crown?
Once it is in place, your dental crown will be smoothed to ensure your bite is comfortable and even. Our staff will explain the most effective method to use when taking care of your dental restoration and suggest effective tooth brushing and flossing techniques. During your regular appointments at our Hamburg, PA facility, one of our professionals will track the condition of your crown and your general oral wellness. When well-cared for, a dental crown should help safeguard the health of your tooth for years. If your custom restoration ever feels dislodged or completely falls off, it's best to reach out to Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for help right away. Trying to fix or reattach it yourself may cause damage to your dental crown and tooth.
Does Insurance Cover Crown treatment?
Some of your crown treatments may be partially paid for by your insurance. Our team at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will work with your insurance prior to your visit. To make covering any dental crown costs more convenient for local residents, our Hamburg, PA office proudly accepts a range of payment options, along with low-cost healthcare financing.
