You might not know whether you need a crown. What you do know is you're experiencing tooth pain or you're unhappy with the look of a tooth.
Dental crowns have a wide range of applications, from replacing a missing tooth to strengthening or enhancing a damaged tooth.
Learn how the dentists at our Tampa, FL, dentistry practice can handle every aspect of your treatment in-office.
A Natural-Looking, Durable Solution
Made of porcelain or zirconia, dental crowns are highly lifelike and made to reflect the color and translucency of your natural teeth. In fact, they're so natural-looking that crowns have several cosmetic applications. Thanks to advances in dental porcelain, your crowns can last up to 10 years with proper care and regular visits to your dentist.

Our Patients Love Us
Tampa Dental Wellness is really a great dentist office. The hygienists I’ve encountered have been extremely gentle, nonjudgmental, and kind. The office is very neat and clean which is important in any medical setting. If I had one complaint it would be that medical terms aren’t always explained as they are going along. I know not all people want to know what’s happening or what certain things mean, but I like to know!View on Google
Tampa Dental Wellness is absolutely first rate. Dr. Fortier and her staff members treated me with great care and respect. Scheduled me right away during significant dental inconvenience for me. I traveled all the way from Pittsburgh PA because they are worth the trip!View on Google
Combining High-End Technology & High-Quality Dentistry
Your First Dental Visit
Advanced Technology for Greater Customization
During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your oral health and address issues such as gum disease or decay to ensure that your crown has a healthy foundation. If you need preparatory dentistry treatment, like a root canal, we can discuss your options during this appointment as well.
Our dentists will also perform an advanced cone beam scan to create accurate, digital impressions instead of using traditional putty dental impressions. This scan is performed efficiently and allows us to generate thousands of high-resolution images without discomfort to you. This technology also allows our doctors to evaluate your endodontic health and the quality of your jawbone to address bone loss early on. Our studies have shown that crowns created using computer-tomography images fit you much better than crowns created using traditional impressions.
The Dental Crown Process
A Closer Look at the Process
Implant-Supported Crowns Treatment for Single Missing Teeth
Along with traditional crowns, our dentists can place and restore implant-supported crowns from start to finish.
Patients needing to replace a missing tooth or teeth may want to consider the benefits of an implant-supported crown. These restorations are supported by dental implants. While traditional crowns can usually be placed within two appointments, implant-supported crowns will be placed approximately six months after you receive your implant posts. However, dental implants are considered a superior tooth replacement solution because they also offer significant oral health benefits.
After your dental implant surgery, the titanium posts will fuse with your surrounding jawbone over a period of three to six months. Once your implants have fused, your dentist will place your abutment and permanent custom crown in place to allow you to chew, speak, and smile properly once more. In addition to their superior aesthetics, dental implants can stimulate the jawbone and prevent further changes in your facial structure.
Caring for Your Dental Crown
Whether you receive a traditional or implant-supported crown, it won't require any special aftercare. Continue visiting our office for regular check-ups and cleanings. You should also brush twice a day with a non-abrasive toothpaste and floss at least once daily. Like your natural teeth, don't use a crowned tooth to open packages or chew on very hard items like ice.

Are Crowns Covered by Insurance?
If your dentist recommends a crown because your oral health is at risk, it should be partially or fully covered by your dental insurance. If you don't have insurance, we offer Platinum Wellness Savings Plan. We also offer cash discounts and accept CareCredit® financing to cover out-of-pocket costs. We can discuss all of these options and provide an estimate during your initial consultation.
