Dr. Measells performed repairs to several of my teeth on February 8, 2016. I was delighted with the results. He and his staff are true professionals, though they treat you like family. I could not be more pleased with my experience with him and his team.

How Much Does a Dental Crown Cost?
 
We Accept Most Insurance Plans

An e.max dental crown from Dr. Jay Measells costs around $1059

While every case is different depending on the extent of dental care needed, complete treatment for an e.max crown from our Vicksburg dentistry practice generally costs around $1059. This includes treating the affected tooth, taking impressions, placing a temporary crown, and attaching the final restoration.

We accept most major insurance plans and our friendly office staff will happily file all the necessary paperwork with your provider to ensure you take full advantage of your benefits. Since a crown is a restorative dental treatment, depending on your dental insurance, most of the cost may be covered.

For patients without dental insurance, we offer a variety of payment options, including CareCredit®. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be glad to answer any questions you have about insurance, costs, and payment options.

Consultation and Exam

During your first appointment, Dr. Measells will review your state of oral health to determine if a dental crown is your best solution. He will discuss your options and outline the specifics of your custom-tailored treatment plan.

Tooth Preparation

Our dentist will remove the decayed or damaged tissue from your tooth. Once complete, he will reshape the remaining structure to create a stable platform for your new crown.

Impressions

Using traditional impression material, Dr. Measells will take a detailed mold of your smile to ensure your new crown fits perfectly with your surrounding teeth.

Temporary Crown Placement

After taking impressions of your teeth, our dentist will place a temporary crown made of porcelain for you to wear while your permanent crown is being made.

Fabrication

It takes about three weeks for our dental lab to construct your new crown. A skilled ceramicist will apply hand-finished details to provide you with the most lifelike results.

Permanent Crown Placement

Once we receive your final restoration from our dental lab, you will return to our dental office to have your temporary crown removed and your permanent crown placed. Any final adjustment will be made to ensure a proper fit and an optimized bite.

Restored Smile

You will leave with a fully restored smile with no required downtime. You may experience sensitivity at the treatment area but this will usually resolve itself in a few days.

A Closer Look at Implant-Supported Crowns

A dental implant-supported crown replaces an entire tooth from the root to the chewing surface. A dental implant is placed into the jaw to replace lost tooth roots, and after it has integrated with the bone tissue, a crown is attached to complete the restoration.

You may be a good candidate for a crown supported by a dental implant if:

  • A single tooth is missing or must be extracted
  • You have sufficient healthy bone tissue in your jaw
  • You are a non-smoker
  • You do not have uncontrolled diabetes or another condition that could increase the risk of implant failure

During your consultation, Dr. Measells will evaluate your oral health to determine if an implant is the best solution for you. If you do not qualify for dental implants, he may recommend a dental bridge.

A Popular Restoration

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, approximately 2.3 million implant-supported crowns are made every year. 

So what makes this such a popular solution? Here are two very important benefits:
 

  • Dental implants prevent the jaw atrophy that follows tooth loss. Tooth roots provide stimulation to the jawbone that keeps bone tissue from receding and seriously disrupting the balance of your smile. Implants are the only other restorative solution that gives your jaw the stimulation it needs in the absence of tooth roots.
  • An implant-supported crown eliminates the need to crown healthy teeth. A traditional dental bridge relies on dental crowns for support. Instead of having to alter two healthy teeth, an implant crown allows you to retain healthy dental tissue.
Whether you suffer from decay, a cracked tooth, or a missing tooth, you can trust our dental practice to provide a crown or another solution that restores your smile and looks totally natural.
