Perfectly seamless tooth restoration
A dental crown is a “cap” which is placed over a tooth that has been broken, treated by root canal, stained, damaged by decay, or is misshapen. Individually crafted and custom-fitted dental crowns blend in with the tone and contour of your natural teeth and can last for more than 15 years. Sometimes crowns are also used to hold a dental bridge or top off a dental implant or they may be applied for certain cosmetic modifications or aesthetic purposes.
What’s the process of getting a crown?
A dental crown procedure usually requires two office visits and is performed by a dentist.
Here is how we go about it:
Examining and preparing the tooth
As with any other kind of dental treatment, everything starts with the dental examination, during which the doctor will check and clean your teeth so they are prepared for an easy fit. If the tooth is broken or severely damaged by decay, we will remove the damaged areas so the dental crown can do its work protecting the tooth from further decay.
Shaping the Crown
Next, with the help of dental putty, we will take an impression of your teeth that will be used to construct full porcelain crowns. You will then be provided with a temporary dental crown that will be fitted onto your teeth until your following appointment. If you are missing a tooth and wish to replace it with a dental implant, we will take an impression of the implant and the surrounding teeth. Our lab will use the impression to manufacture your own custom crown.
Placing the Crown
At your second appointment, we will remove your temporary crown and replace it with a permanent crown. The crown will be secured using durable dental cement or a hidden screw. To complete the process, we will polish your crown and make any necessary adjustments to ensure your comfort and security.

The out-of-pocket cost for a dental crown can vary widely from patient to patient. With a typical insurance plan a single crown averages out to about $200 to $600+. Without insurance, a reasonable ball-park figure for a crown would be about $800 to $1200 and up. To get your mouth looking and feeling normal again, most people feel that a dental crown is an easy decision but the cost may still give you pause.

Couldn’t be happier with the level of care and expertise received here! When you first walk in you’re greeted by Dawn or Basma, both are so friendly and knowledgeable. Lisa and Dr. Sabri work so well together, and are both so kind and put you at ease. Dr. Sabri is hands down the most knowledgeable dentist I’ve been to, I trust his advice and expertise 100%. The office itself is sparkling clean, and all Covid procedures are being followed above and beyond ... I cannot say enough good things about Sr Sabri and his amazing team!
I had such a pleasant experience at this office. I was on the hunt for a new dentist when one of my wisdom teeth started to give me some discomfort. I gave this office a shot because it had such great reviews. Dr. Sabri and his staff were amazing from start to finish. The whole procedure was quick! I felt zero discomfort through the whole process and left very happy. I have found my new dentist and will highly recommend it to family and friends.
Very friendly staff, everyone including front desk receptionist, dental hygienist, and the doctor is very knowledgeable... The front desk staff explained to me about my insurance, and directly billed to my insurance company, so I did not have to make my own claims. The cleaning experience was great, the dental hygienist cleaned my teeth very nicely with no pain whatsoever! I had an extraction and filling performed by Dr. Sabri, he explained to me everything before starting the procedure, and performed all procedures without causing me any pain.
