Frequently Asked Questions
Does getting dental crowns hurt?
Receiving a dental crown is a virtually painless process. Your dentist will administer a local anesthetic beforehand to numb the area to ensure you don’t feel any pain. If your dentist provides at their office, they can provide you with dental sedation so you’ll feel relaxed during the procedure. Ask your dentist if they provide sedation dentistry.
It’s normal to experience mild soreness after the numbness fades, but any pain will subside within a few days. You can use cold compresses and over-the-counter pain medications to relieve any discomfort in the meantime.
Are dental crowns safe?
Dental crowns are completely safe, and there’s virtually no risk involved. Your dentist will closely monitor your progress to prevent any potential complications throughout your placement procedure. If you feel any discomfort or sensitivity afterward, you can call your dentist’s office to receive the necessary care your smile needs.
How much do dental crowns cost?
The cost of dental crowns varies depending on certain factors, such as how many dental crowns you’ll need, your choice of sedation (if your dentist provides it), and your insurance coverage. We recommend contacting your dental insurance provider beforehand to learn what coverage your plan offers. If the coverage isn’t enough, ask your dentist if they provide financing options to help ease your financial worries.
