Porcelain Crowns in Wilmington, DE

We’ll Make Your Tooth
Look Like New

Your teeth are a big part of your life. You use them every day for eating, talking, and smiling. It’s really important for your teeth to be healthy and look their best. Dr. Syed at Delaware Star Dental will help you take good care of your smile.

Of course, accidents happen, and your teeth can be damaged or broken due to physical trauma or decay. In these cases, Dr. Syed will often suggest restoring the damaged tooth with a porcelain crown, a natural-looking cap that covers the whole tooth.

Every year, dentists like Dr. Syed save millions of damaged teeth from extraction and restore them to full function with attractive porcelain crowns. Your crown is custom-made to match the shape and color of your teeth, blending in flawlessly with your smile.

Placing Your Porcelain Crown

It only takes two visits to Delaware Star Dental in Wilmington for you to get your new crown. During your first appointment, Dr. Syed will create an impression of your tooth to make sure your crown fits perfectly.

Next, our custom dental lab will make your crown. In the meantime, Dr. Syed will provide a temporary crown to wear until your permanent crown is ready. Then you can return to our office to have it placed.

During your second visit, Dr. Syed will reshape the tooth so your crown will have a snug fit. He’ll attach your crown using special dental adhesive, creating a stable bond.

Porcelain is an excellent material for dental restorations because it’s strong, white, and it sparkles in the light like a natural tooth. When given proper care, a porcelain crown will protect your tooth for about fifteen years or even longer.

Reasons You Might Need a Crown

A porcelain crown is a versatile treatment option that can be used in a number of different circumstances. Dr. Syed uses crowns to: 

  • Fix a cavity that’s too large to restore with a regular filling
  • Restore a tooth following root canal therapy
  • Restore cracked, chipped, or broken tooth
  • Support a dental bridge
  • Improve the look of an irregular-shaped tooth
  • Restore a stained tooth that resists whitening treatment


Can I whiten a dental crown?

Dental crowns are naturally white and don’t become discolored over time as natural teeth do. If you notice your natural teeth becoming discolored, causing them to no longer match your crown, you may benefit from our professional whitening services.

How much do dental crowns cost?

Dental crowns are an affordable way to preserve your tooth, often eliminating the need for a more costly restoration down the line. According to WebMD, they typically cost between $800 and $1700.

When you meet with Dr. Syed for your consultation, you can talk to our payment coordinator about your financing and payment options. We work with all insurance companies and we even feature our own plan for patients without dental insurance.

What are my options if my crown has been damaged?

If you notice damage to your porcelain crown, contact our office right away. Dr. Syed has replaced or repaired crowns that were originally placed by another dentist.

Severely damaged crowns might require replacement, while small cracks may just need to be repaired.

Can I replace gold or metal crowns with a porcelain crown?

Yes. If you’re unhappy with how your gold or metal crown looks, you can have it removed and replaced with a porcelain crown. Keep in mind, however, that Dr. Syed will have to completely remove your old crown and prepare your tooth for the new crown.
