Dr. Christopher Lim and his team of dental professionals are committed to helping our patients achieve their smile and oral health goals. Offering a range of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments, we help our patients avoid painful dental problems and keep their smiles healthy and happy for as long as possible. Whether your visit to Hillside Dental is for the purpose of brightening the smile or repairing damage, we remain focused on achieving the desired outcome with effective, gentle care. When tooth repair is the task at hand, options for dental crowns exist.
Dental crowns can be both a cosmetic and restorative treatment. The primary purpose of a crown is to restore a damaged tooth to natural structure and cover it to prevent further damage. While functionality is the main intent, we understand that today’s dental patient also seeks restorative care that takes aesthetics into consideration. As such, there are options for materials ranging from gold to porcelain and many in between.
For most people, cost is one of the important considerations when facing restorative dental care like crowns. In our South Las Vegas dental practice, Dr. Lim seeks solutions for individual patients, providing choices that are both affordable and valuable in terms of longevity and beauty. Dental crown treatment has so many variations that it is impossible to set a standard price for all crowns. The main factors that determine cost of treatment include the size of the crown and the material from which the restoration is made. The final out-of-pocket expense may also be decreased when insurance coverage covers all or part of treatment.
When a tooth has been damaged or injured in some way, restorative care prevents additional damage and pain. Patient care, for us, is not to dictate which type of crown a patient receives, but to provide the necessary details on each type of crown so that the individual patient may make the determination as to which is the best restoration for his or her needs.
At Hillside Dental, our priority is to help you prevent the dental problems that may lead to the need for a dental crown. Above and beyond this, we offer gentle care through which your oral health is restored and maintained. To schedule your visit at Hillside Dental, call (702) 666-8584.
