Watch How a Traditional Dental Crown Is Placed
Real 5-Star Reviews
I have nothing but good things to say about the wonderful staff at Plymouth General Dentistry. They go above and beyond to provide professional and compassionate care. I really like that they told me everything that they were doing and asked repeatedly if I was doing alright. This is the best Dental practice I have been to and I would not consider going anywhere else for my dental care.View Our Google Listing
I had my teeth cleaned today by Bailey and she did such a great job. I’ve had cleanings done by other dentist offices and left with me gums throbbing but not today. My teeth & gums feel great and nice & clean. Thank you Bailey for the great cleaning! Also, Dr. Joan is awesome! She examines your teeth and tells you the truth on what to do or not to do. Best dentist I’ve been to! Thanks again guys for the great service.View Our Google Listing
The Dental Crown Timeline
Better Smile, Better Self-Confidence The Difference a Dental Crown Can Make
Patients can also restore a missing tooth at our Plymouth practice with an implant-supported crown. When you choose this option, we will coordinate with a local oral surgeon who will place a dental implant through your gums and into your jawbone. Over a period of several months, the implant will fuse with the bone and become part of your anatomy.
When you are completely healed, Dr. Kirschner can secure a dental crown to the implant. While this process is more complex than traditional treatment, implant dentistry is the only solution that replaces tooth roots and maintains the strength of your jawbone.
Dental Crown Treatment Costs
If you are getting a dental crown for health reasons, your insurance will likely pay for treatment to some extent. Our Plymouth dental office accepts many types of insurance and can coordinate directly with your provider to get you the most coverage. Remaining out-of-pocket expenses can be managed on most budgets with flexible financing through CareCredit®.
Maintaining Your Dental Crown
Practice Good Dental Hygiene
Care for your restoration in a similar manner as your natural teeth by thoroughly brushing and flossing on a daily basis. Remember to pull the dental floss from front to back rather than up and down the sides of your teeth to avoid snagging the edge of your crown.
Avoid Wear And Tear
While our porcelain and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are very strong, they are not indestructible, so refrain from chewing on ice, hard candies, or anything excessively hard. If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), we may recommend wearing a mouthguard to protect your teeth and dental crown overnight.
Visit the Dentist
The best way to maintain your dental crown and natural teeth is to schedule a biannual check-up at our Plymouth practice. If we identify anything wrong with your restoration or your oral health, we can provide a solution as quickly as possible.

Coming from someone who is typically terrified of dental work, Plymouth General Dentistry is hands down the best dental experience I've ever had. They are so friendly and professional and honestly just delightful to work with. They go above and beyond to make their patients feel comfortable and at ease with any and all procedures you may need. I've never had an unpleasant appointment- even when I've had fillings or when I got my crown. I rave to all my local friends about how wonderful and professional they are and highly recommend their business to anyone looking for dental work! Before going to PGD, I used to DREAD dentist appointments, but now I actually look forward to seeing them when I get my cleanings done!View Our Google Listing
I love my dentist! Dr. Joan Kirschner is one amazing woman! I was blessed to not only find such a knowledgeable dentist, but the kindest soul I have ever met. She is honestly a part of my family. She has helped me out in these tough times, without a blink of an eye. I don’t have the words to describe how much she means to me and how much I appreciate her. Dr. Kirschner and her team post positive messages everyday! They put a smile on my face, and yes, sometimes I laugh out loud! They are kind, caring and beautiful human beings. FYI, I don’t have any cavities! If you’re in need of a dentist, don’t hesitate to be part of Dr. Kirschner’s family!View Our Google Listing
