A Brighter Smile Begins Here
Sometimes a filling just isn’t enough — that’s when a dental crown comes into play.
Also referred to as a “cap,” a dental crown covers the entire visible portion of your tooth, restoring its shape, appearance, and function.
Dental crowns from Damonte Ranch Dental Care are known for their quality, durability, and beauty. With proper care, your crown will last for years, be resistant to stains and chips, and look just like your natural teeth.

How Much Does a Dental Crown Cost?
Before we can give you an estimate, Dr. Waring needs to evaluate your health and individual needs. We’ll help you understand the cost of your crown before your treatment. We also offer great payment and financing options.
The Dental Crown Process
Dr. Waring has completed hundreds of crowns and has a knack for making the experience relaxing and enjoyable. Many patients are surprised by just how gentle and easy the process is.
Here’s what you can expect:
- Dr. Waring will gently make room for the crown by preparing the surface of your tooth.
- We’ll take an impression of your mouth to ensure the crown is custom-fit to your teeth.
- A temporary crown is placed while we make your crown.
- We work closely with a local dental lab to design the best quality crown possible using the safest, high-tech materials.
- Finally, we’ll cement the crown in your mouth and you’ll be done!
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do dental crowns last?
Dental crowns are a fixed restoration. With proper care and regular preventive visits, your custom-crafted crown can last 10 to 20 years!
Is it painful to have a crown put on your tooth?
No. Getting a crown is a comfortable experience. We’ll make sure your mouth is numb before your treatment starts. Your mouth will feel numb for a few hours after your appointment. If anything feels sore once the numbing wears off, an over-the-counter pain medication is all you’ll need.
When should a dental crown be replaced?
If you have a dental crown that’s more than 15 years old, talk to Dr. Waring to determine if and when it may need to be replaced. We always want to replace a crown before it becomes damaged or ineffective due to old age.
Can you get decay under a crown?
Yes. The tooth underneath your crown can still get damaged by bacteria, leading to cavities and tooth decay. It’s important to care for your crowned tooth the same way you care for the rest of your mouth — maintain proper oral hygiene and visit us every 6 months for a cleaning and exam.
