Dental Crowns for a Perfect Smile

Affordable Dental Solutions in South Gate

At West Coast Dental of South Gate, we understand the importance of a radiant smile and how it can boost your confidence. Serving the South Gate, Lynwood, Bell, Bell Gardens, and Huntington Park communities, we specialize in providing affordable dental crowns that don’t compromise on quality. In this article, we’ll dive into the various costs of dental crowns, the types available, their benefits, the procedure involved, and how to maintain them for a lasting smile.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Crowns

The cost of dental crowns varies depending on the type of material used and the specific needs of the patient. Generally, porcelain fused to metal crowns are more budget-friendly, while gold and zirconia crowns may come with a higher price tag due to their superior quality and durability. At West Coast Dental of South Gate, we believe in transparent pricing and offer various payment options to make dental care accessible to everyone. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with us to discuss the best options within your budget.

Types of Dental Crowns

  1. Porcelain Fused to Metal: An affordable choice that offers strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal. While it’s an affordable choice, it’s important to note that some quality aspects, particularly in terms of matching the exact color and translucency of natural teeth, may not be as refined as with more expensive options.
  2. Gold Crowns: Ideal for posterior teeth, known for their durability and minimal impact on opposing teeth. While gold crowns have a distinctive appearance that may cater to specific aesthetic preferences, their long-term resilience and minimal wear on adjacent teeth make them a wise, albeit unique, choice for those prioritizing dental health and functionality.
  3. Zirconia Crowns: Renowned for their strength and natural appearance, making them a top choice for many. Their durability is unparalleled, making them suitable for both front and back teeth. The material’s ability to mimic the translucency and color of natural teeth sets it apart, ensuring a seamless blend with your smile. Given these qualities, zirconia crowns are often considered the superior choice for a wide range of dental restoration needs, offering both functional longevity and aesthetic excellence.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Restorative Appearance: They seamlessly restore the appearance of damaged or discolored teeth.
  • Protection and Support: Crowns offer support to weakened teeth, especially after root canal treatments.
  • Versatility: Useful in anchoring dental bridges, correcting misshapen teeth, and enhancing overall dental aesthetics.

The Dental Crown Procedure

The journey to getting a dental crown typically spans over two visits:

  • First Visit: Tooth preparation and impression taking, followed by the placement of a temporary crown.
  • Second Visit: The temporary crown is replaced with the permanent one, ensuring a perfect fit and aesthetic.

Maintaining Your Crowns

To ensure your crowns last, maintain good oral hygiene practices like regular brushing and flossing, and routine dental check-ups. It’s also crucial to avoid habits that could damage the crowns, such as chewing hard foods or using your teeth as tools.


Dental crowns are a fantastic solution for reviving your smile and enhancing dental functionality. With proper care, these crowns can be a long-lasting investment in your oral health. We invite you to contact West Coast Dental of South Gate to determine if dental crowns are suitable for your needs, and to explore our affordable options tailored for our community.
