Dental crowns are a great solution for teeth that are decayed or damaged to the point they are no longer functional. Buffalo General Dentistry is proud to provide patients with high-quality preventative, cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services in a warm, comfortable office setting. With more than 10 years of experience, Dr. Daniel Jammal is happy to offer dental crowns to patients in Amherst and the neighboring communities of Buffalo, NY.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, also simply called crowns or caps, are custom-made caps that cover the entire natural tooth when the tooth is too decayed or damaged to support normal function. Crowns are a common procedure among patients who need to restore their teeth for both comfort and aesthetics. Dr. Jammal and his team of dental experts may recommend you receive crowns if your teeth are causing you severe pain and damage cannot be repaired with cosmetic or general dentistry services.

How Do I Know if I Need Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are typically recommended for the following concerns:

    • Discomfort following a root canal
    • Severely damaged or decayed teeth
    • Teeth with large, failing fillings
    • Misshapen or severely discolored teeth
    • Restoring dental implants
    • Supporting dental bridges

How are Dental Crowns Placed?

Your dental crowns will be placed by Dr. Jammal and his expert dental team in our comfortable office. Crown procedures typically requires two separate office visits.  At the first visit, Dr. Jammal will numb your treated area to ensure you’re comfortable. Your tooth of concern will be reshaped, preparing it for the new crown.  An impression will then be made of your tooth, so your new crown will fit tightly and comfortably. Dr. Jammal will place temporary crown over your tooth for usability and comfort while your permanent crown is being fabricated at our partnering lab. Once your permanent crown is made, you’ll return for a second office visit where your temporary crown will be removed and your new, permanent crown will be cemented into place.

How Much Do Dental Crowns Cost?

The cost of your dental crown will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your healthiest smile. The best way to find out how much your dental crown will cost is to come in for a private appointment with Dr. Daniel Jammal. In addition to working with most insurance providers, we are happy to offer flexible financing options through CareCredit®, Wells Fargo, and an in-house Smile Club Loyalty Plan.

I highly recommend Dr. Jammal. His approach is friendly and compassionate while having extensive knowledge in all aspects of dentistry. He takes the time to really understand the issue, find the right treatment plan and ensures the patient is comfortable.

I’ve recommended Dr. Jammal to my parents and they too have never been so pleased with a dentist as they have been with Dr. Jammal.

What an amazing team-this office is the whole dang package and more! I’ve never been treated as one of the family by an office until this one. The hygienist is able to accommodate my remarkable sensitivity and still do a fantastic thorough job. The doctors assistant is so funny and put meat such ease during a usually high-anxiety procedure. Dr. Jammal really took the time to get to know me, again, treating me like more than just a patient—when I’m there, I’m a member of the office family. I could not be more lucky than I have been to find Dr. Jammal and the whole staff. If you’re looking for a dentist that can handle your dental anxiety, look no further—this is absolutely the place for you.

Great place with wonderful staff! Everyone is great there! Love my hygienist I have been going to her for years! Also, the dentist is professional and makes you feel comfortable. I decided to do a filling naturally without novocaine and it went great! Highly recommend!
