Dental Crowns

Damaged, decayed, or discolored teeth can detract from the beauty of your smile and cause functional concerns.

Dental crowns are a versatile solution that aims to improve both the appearance and functionality of teeth.

See how Drs. Jonathan Scharf and David J. Kopecki at Exton Dental Health Group® in Exton, PA, can restore your smile with a lifelike crown.

The Benefits of a Dental Crown

A Versatile Solution

Crowns have been used in dentistry for decades due to their versatility. Dental crowns can protect a tooth after trauma or decay, cap a tooth after a root canal, conceal deep dental stains that can't be whitened, support a bridge, and more. They can lend to a healthier, more attractive smile.

Improved Confidence

We use porcelain to create crowns that look natural. Porcelain can be altered to match nearly any tooth color and has the same light-reflecting properties as tooth enamel. Our custom dental crowns perfectly complement the hue, shape, and size of surrounding teeth to create a flawless smile. You can smile wide and be confident that no one will be able to tell you've received a porcelain crown.

Restored Function

Broken or missing teeth might mean it is difficult for you to eat, or even to speak clearly. Dental crowns made from porcelain are durable solutions that make eating comfortable again and allow patients to speak without lisping or slurred speech.

Dentist and patient

Our Patient Discusses His Experience "Dr. Scharf's a perfectionist."

In addition to cosmetic procedures, Mike received crowns for his two front teeth after his old crowns came out. His experience with Dr. Scharf has made him more conscientious of his oral health and the work we've done has made him a regular client.

The Process of Getting a Crown What You Can Expect From Our Exton Dentists

We are steadfast in our dedication to meeting and, whenever possible, exceeding the expectations of our patients.

Consultation

You will start with a consultation with one of our dentists in Exton. During this visit, our dentist will inquire about your oral health concerns, review your medical and dental histories, and determine if you're a candidate for treatment.

Prepare Tooth

Your dentist will remove damaged or decayed tissue from the tooth or perform a root canal. They will then remove enough of the tooth structure to ensure the crown lies flush with adjacent teeth.

Impressions

Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth. These will be used to guide the creation of your custom restoration.

Temporary Crown

Before you leave our office, you will likely be fitted with a temporary crown so you don't have to go another day without restored function.

Lab

Your impressions will be sent to a trusted lab where professionals will use a block of dental porcelain to create a crown that blends in seamlessly with your smile.

Place Crown

After about two to three weeks, we will receive your permanent crown. You can return to our Exton office where we will remove your temporary crown and replace it with the permanent crown. After ensuring the crown meets our standards and is comfortable, it will be bonded in place.

We Offer Implant-Supported Crowns

Crowns can be supported by dental implants to completely replace missing teeth. We coordinate with the finest oral surgeons in the area, who will perform your dental implant placement surgery. After implant placement, you can return to our office where Dr. Kopecki will create your custom crown. Implant-supported restorations are the most natural, stable, and durable method of replacing missing teeth.

Caring for Your Dental Crown

You can care for your dental crown in the same way you care for your teeth. Our dentists recommend that patients:

Follow an Oral Care Routine

Brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash regularly can stave off tooth decay, keep the supporting tooth under your crown healthy, and ensure your crown continues to look its best for years to come.

Attend Checkups

During regular checkups, our team can provide you with a dental cleaning, detect problems before they become serious, and check your crown to make sure it's still functioning properly. Our dentists can keep you informed on the condition of your crown and let you know when it's time to replace it.

Avoid Certain Foods

Chewy, sticky foods can pull your crown out of place, and foods that stain can discolor your teeth over time, resulting in a crown that no longer matches them. We recommend chewing sticky foods in areas that don't have dental work and minimizing your intake of foods and beverages that can stain your teeth.

A Dental Solution That Lasts

Crowns typically last for about 15 years, but can last even longer when cared for properly. Some patients report that their crowns stand up to wear for as long as 30 years, making them a long-term dental solution that's worth every penny.

Paying for Your Crown

Our Exton office understands how life-changing crowns can be, so we do everything we can to make them affordable. We are proud to accept most insurances and financing through CareCredit® so patients can fit this life-changing dental solution into their budgets.

When used in restorative dentistry to repair a damaged tooth, dental crowns are often covered by insurance. When used in cosmetic dentistry, patients will have out-of-pocket costs. Financing options allow patients to pay for this dentistry solution in monthly installments, so it's always within reach.
