Skowhegan dentist explains the cost and considerations of dental crowns

Dental Crowns treatment for damaged teeth from Dr. Mohammed Imam in Skowhegan

When a tooth is damaged, it is important to get it fixed quickly and effectively. Not only can a damaged tooth cause pain, it can continue to weaken a person’s overall oral health. Drs. Imam and Kahn of the Maine Center for Dental Medicine in Skowhegan have helped countless patients restore their tooth and their confidence with dental crown restorations. He helps patients understand the cost, benefits, and other considerations of this treatment.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth cap that is custom made to fit over the entire tooth. Because it is created according to the dentist’s specifications it is a precise match in shape and color to the rest of the teeth. A crown can be used when a tooth is so badly decayed that a filling won’t be effective, in conjunction with root canals, or to fix a tooth that is damaged due to trauma to the mouth.

A crown is placed onto the prepared tooth using dental cement, which bonds it to the tooth

Drs. Imam and Kahn use CEREC to create crowns in the office, while the patient waits. This computer-aided design technology uses the dentist’s specifications to create a custom restoration the same day.

How much do dental crowns cost?

While an exact estimate can only be provided by the dentist, it’s important to understand that the value of fixing a damaged tooth is high. With treatment, a tooth can be restored. However, a damaged tooth that goes untreated can be troublesome. Many patients hope that their tooth pain will simply go away or they take over the counter pain medication to mask the discomfort. It’s important to note that the tooth cannot restore itself and decay will continue to grow and weaken the tooth, which could lead to tooth loss or other oral health care issues.

I have been going to see Drs. Khan and Imman for several years now. I am thoroughly impressed with their advanced education and attention to the patient's pain. They always explain, in advance of doing any work, the intricacies, pros and cons of different approaches. I have total faith in both of their professional abilities and also have recommended them to everyone I know who is looking for dentists. They are both immensely kind people, tremendous dentists and all their support staff is exceptionally pleasant and helpful.

The team at this dental office is superb. My amalgams were removed with great ease and all precautions for mercury removal were taken. They are such a caring bunch of professionals. I will definitely continue taking the 5 hour drive to this office and continue being a patient at this dental office.
