Why should I choose dental crowns?
If your teeth are suffering from severe damage and decay, you can protect and restore them with dental crowns. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that are placed over a damaged tooth in order to restore its functionality. They can also be used to cover a tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy, or to complete a dental implant procedure. Because they can be made with a variety of materials, dental crowns are a versatile solution that can be used to treat a wide range of restorative and cosmetic dental issues.
Accessible Care For All
You don’t need to rely on dental insurance to get the care you need. We strive to keep quality dentistry affordable and accessible by providing a variety of ways to finance your treatment.
Natural Tooth Roots Are Retained
Crowns provide support and protect teeth that have been cracked, chipped, or decayed.
Blends Seamlessly With Your Smile
Dental crowns look and feel just like a natural tooth, so they fit in perfectly with the rest of your grin.
A properly-fit crown that is well-taken care of can last up to 15 years, or even longer in some cases! That way, you can keep smiling with confidence for years to come.
Intraoral Scanner = Mess-Free Treatment
You can say goodbye to goopy impressions thanks to our 3D Intraoral Scanner. This tool allows us to capture images and create models of your teeth. It’s a fully digital process — no putty necessary.
Preparing The Tooth
Your dentist will begin by cleaning and numbing your mouth in preparation for treatment. Sedation may be provided if you would like or if your dentist thinks it’s necessary. A dental drill will then be used to remove the decayed enamel and reshape your tooth to create a stable platform for your new dental crown.
Imaging & Temporary Crown Placement
Using dental putty or a 3D scanner, we will create impressions or models of your teeth, which will be used to build your custom dental crown. We’ll also capture some additional images of your teeth to ensure that your new crown matches the shade of your natural smile perfectly. Your model or impression will be sent to a dental lab where your crown will be crafted out of durable materials. Your dentist will attach a temporary crown for the few weeks it will take for your permanent crown to be made in order to protect your newly-prepared tooth.
Final Fit & Finish
Once we receive your permanent dental crown, you’ll return to our office for a final fitting. First, we’ll ensure that your new crown fits comfortably and make any final adjustments. When we’ve achieved the right fit, your dentist will permanently secure it in place with a powerful dental adhesive.
Before & Afters
