Dental Crowns at Magical Smiles in Plainfield, IL

Welcome to Magical Smiles, your home for superior dental care in Plainfield, IL. Our team, led by Dr. Vineet Sharma, is dedicated to offering a range of dental services to our patients. One such service is the fitting and placing of dental crowns, a restorative procedure we’ve mastered, helping countless patients regain their confident, healthy smiles.

Unraveling the Concept of Dental Crowns

A dental crown, often referred to as a “cap,” is a protective cover that encases the entire visible portion of a tooth. Crafted from various materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a fusion of these, dental crowns are tailor-made to match the color, shape, size, and function of your natural teeth. At Magical Smiles, we focus on creating crowns that not only protect your tooth but also enhance your smile’s overall aesthetics.

Understanding the Reasons for Dental Crowns

Dental crowns serve multiple purposes in maintaining and restoring oral health. Some of the most common reasons why Dr. Sharma might recommend a crown include:

  • Restoration of a Damaged Tooth: If a tooth is fractured, worn down, or has a large filling, a crown can provide the necessary strength and protection.
  • Cosmetic Enhancement: Crowns can cover discolored, misshapen, or generally unsightly teeth, significantly improving the appearance of your smile.
  • Completion of a Root Canal: After a root canal procedure, a crown is often placed over the treated tooth to seal it and prevent reinfection.
  • Anchor for a Dental Bridge: If a dental bridge is being placed, crowns on adjacent teeth serve as anchors to hold the bridge securely.
  • Cover for a Dental Implant: Crowns top dental implants, providing a functional and aesthetic replacement for a lost tooth.

The Dental Crown Placement Process

The process of getting a dental crown typically involves two visits to our office. During the initial visit, Dr. Sharma will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and reshaping it to accommodate the crown. An impression of your tooth will be made to ensure the crown fits seamlessly into your smile. You will receive a temporary crown to protect the tooth while your permanent crown is crafted in a dental lab.

On your second visit, the permanent crown will be meticulously checked for fit and color before being cemented in place. Dr. Sharma’s precision and attention to detail ensure that your new crown will feel just like a natural tooth.

Insurance and Pricing Options for Dental Crowns

Investing in your dental health is crucial, and at Magical Smiles, we are committed to making high-quality dental care accessible and affordable. We accept a broad range of insurance plans and offer flexible payment options for patients without insurance. Our team is prepared to help you understand your coverage and work with you to manage any out-of-pocket costs.

I came for an emergency appointment and liked this practice so much that I am making them my regular dental practice. Everyone was very friendly and professional. Dr Sharma did a great job treating my issue and it was easy and painless! I will be recommending this practice to everyone.

The staff is genuinely friendly. Nicole, with whom I had first contact when I made my appointment, and Heather, the dental assistant were both extremely welcoming. Dr. Sharma is so kind and attentive. He communicated with me during the proceedure and put me at ease. He was also patient when numbing my mouth; making sure that I was comfortable before he continued. He called me after my visit to check and find out if I had any questions. When I called the office with a minor concern days after my visit, I received a prompt reply. I am so grateful for the doctor and his staff. I recommend his practice for everyone.

I recently has my four wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Sharma. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. I was really nervous but he definitely put me at ease and it was such a smooth experience. His whole staff is so nice, they will definitely take care of you here.

Can not express the amount of CARE and SYMPATHY Dr. Puri gave me without ever seeing me before. I suffered for 8 day under a different dentist. She was BOOKED but said to me, "I can not let someone suffer in pain like you are". I was like a 5 year old with tears and fears. She brushed my head and placed ice on my forehead. Communicated all steps before hand. THAT IS WHAT WE NEED IN A DENTIST. 18 MILLION STARS

My wife and I are here in Illinois visiting old friends. Been having an issue with my teeth and gums. I knew of the problem but was unable to get it taken care of before leaving home in New Mexico. My problem worsened. A friend recommended Dr. Jyoti Puri. I was able to get in due to a cancellation. Staff was great in helping me get my records from New Mexico. Everyone from start to finish was exceptional. My dental issue was worse than I thought. Dr. Puri explained clearly in terms I could understand and presented me with some options. Her care and skills made my procedure as painless as possible. Her surgical assistants Michelle and Griselda also were great with x rays and assisting in the procedure. 5 STARS PLUS! HIGHLY RECCOMMEND
