When one tooth is worn down or damaged, it may be saved with a crown. Sometimes called a cap, dental crowns are made custom to cover the needed tooth and colored to blend with your natural teeth for an attractive finish. At SEDA Dental in Boca Raton, FL, a crown can treat a large area of decay, strengthen a damaged tooth, hold together a crack, or mask discoloration. Dentist Dr. Mauricio Antezana creates dental crowns with a choice of materials to meet your specific needs, including metal, porcelain, and metal covered with porcelain. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Antezana to find out how a crown may repair or strengthen a damaged tooth while also boosting the total health of your mouth.

Best Candidates

Crowns may be wanted or needed in several different ways. They may be placed to cover a weak, decaying tooth to prevent it from chipping or it may hold together a cracked tooth. Dental crowns may also fix a loose or worn-down tooth. They may be used to strengthen a tooth with a lot of decay that will not take a tooth-colored filling, serve as part of a dental bridge, or mask discolored or misshapen teeth. Crowns may be glued over your tooth or connected by an implant. The crown's material is selected with consideration to where it is being placed. Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) or metal are typically stronger, which makes them better suited for the less visible teeth in the back. Ceramic or porcelain crowns are better for the visible teeth and customized to match the color, shape, and size of your teeth. At your consultation, Dr. Antezana will discuss your choices and help you identify the best dental crown for your needs.

What To Expect

At your consultation, Dr. Antezana will take dental impressions so your crown can be made to fit your tooth. In some cases, a temporary dental crown may be used to cover your tooth as your permanent crown is being crafted. As soon as your dental crown is made, the treatment area will be given a local numbing anesthetic. More sedation techniques may be used if you have dental anxieties or fears. When the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Antezana will prep your tooth by cleaning away debris and decay, then lightly file the enamel to create space for your dental crown. Your dental crown can be either glued to your tooth or connected to an implant. Once set, Dr. Antezana can adjust the crown's fit so it is comfortable.


Unless sedation was used, you will be able to leave our office once the procedure is done and get back to your day. Dr. Antezana or a member of his team will discuss how to care for your crown, including any foods that should be avoided and cleaning. During your annual exams at SEDA Dental, Dr. Antezana will evaluate your dental crown and adjust it to keep it comfortable. He will determine when your crown should be replaced; however, with good care, it may last for several years. If you have any issues with your crown (if it falls out or is loose), contact our office right away. Do not try to repair it or reattach it because this may cause an infection or bad fit.

Insurance Coverage

Based on your dental insurance, part of your costs may be covered by your provider. Once we talk to your insurance provider, we will be able to better calculate your personal costs. At your consultation, Dr. Antezana will help you choose the best crown material that suits your needs and budget. He can also discuss payment methods along with financing to help make your procedure affordable.
