Placing a Dental Crown
- On your first visit, we’ll choose a color that matches your natural teeth.
- Then we remove any decay and shape the tooth with the handpiece.
- When the area is ready we will take an impression of your teeth.
- The lab uses this to create a crown that precisely fits your tooth and bite.
- In the meantime, we often place a temporary crown.
On your next visit, we remove the temporary and try on your new porcelain crown. We’ll make sure you love the way it looks and feels, and then we cement the crown into place. When you need a crown, porcelain crowns are a natural-looking choice for a beautiful and healthy bite.
Grove Dental’s 5 Year Dental Crown Warranty
Our qualified dental team makes every effort to provide you with a high quality dental crown and/or bridge by using a well established local lab, the latest products available as well as the utmost care and diligence. We are confident in the quality of our work and support it with a warranty that very few dental offices offer.
What is Covered?
This warranty covers only defects in materials or workmanship, including installation, with the exceptions stated below
What Is Not Covered
This warranty does not cover any discoloration or failure of the crown caused by caries (cavity/decay), smoking or consumption of staining liquids and foods. Should the crown require repair or replacement, additional treatments associated with the procedure are not covered.
How Long Coverage Lasts
This warranty runs for 5 years from the date the crown is delivered. You must remain a patient of Grove Dental Group for the entirety of the 5 years following placement of the crown/bridge. You must maintain a minimum number of cleaning appointments every calendar year from the date of delivery. Regular patients: 2 times per year. Perio-compromised patients: 3 to 4 times per year.
What Voids The Warranty
Smoking, excessive clenching, ice chewing, refusal of treatment for diagnosed bruxism, failure to maintain cleaning appointments and recommended radiographs. Failure to complete, in our office, all treatment in the area of the mouth where the crown/bridge is located within 3 months of being diagnosed and treatment planned. Direct treatments on the restoration by persons other than Grove Dental Group employees will void this warranty.
What Will Grove Dental Group Do?
Grove Dental Group will repair a restoration that proves to be defective in materials or workmanship. In the event the repair is not possible; Grove Dental Group will replace the crown with a new crown of similar material and price.
