About Dental Crowns
Dental crowns, also known as caps, can help a wide range of concerns from cosmetic flaws to strength, protection, and replacing a missing tooth. At Smile Design Dental Spa in Westchester and Putnam Counties, NY, board-certified cosmetic dentist Dr. Stacie Calian offers advanced Prettau Zirconia crowns for natural-looking results that last longer than traditional metal or porcelain crowns. Prettau Zirconia crowns are made based on the patient's dental molds and can be cemented over a tooth as a cover or screwed into the jaw with a dental implant for a more secure hold. Prettau Zirconia crowns resist abrasion and mimic that transparency of natural teeth for better results. With advanced in-office technology, Dr. Calian is able to design, create, and place Prettau implants in one day so you can get back to smiling and eating. Dr. Calian also offer FirstFit crowns for high-quality, natural-looking implant crowns.

What to Expect
At Smile Design Dental Spa, Dr. Calian can make and place a dental crown in one appointment. Using the in-office ICAT scanner, Dr. Calian can design and plan the Prettau Zirconia crown quickly. Once the crown is designed, it can be made in the office while the patient waits. Once the permanent crown is ready it will be fit and set by Dr. Calian.
Patients do not usually have any pain after a crown is placed, but some patients experience discomfort or tooth sensitivity. Depending on the material, crowns can last from 7 – 40 years. Patients can extend the life of their crown by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting their dentist for regular exams and cleanings. If oral health is neglected, the tooth under the crown may develop a cavity or infection that will require more extensive treatment, like a root canal.
The total cost of a dental crown will depend on the materials used, as well as the amount of teeth treated, their condition, size, and location. Prettau Zirconia crowns will usually cost more than traditional crowns, but since they tend to last longer, they have a greater value. The dentist will go over estimated costs and financing options during the patient’s consultation and the front office can check with the patient’s insurance to determine if any of their costs are covered.
