What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-made cap that is used to cover and protect a damaged, decayed, or otherwise compromised tooth from further harm. In some cases, they can also be used to replace missing teeth. They are made of high-quality, tooth-colored materials (we used porcelain-fused-to-metal, zirconia, and porcelain) that can be customized to match your natural teeth for a seamless smile.

Dental crowns sport impressive versatility and are often used for:

  • Protecting your vulnerable tooth after a root canal.
  • Covering dental implants to replace missing teeth.
  • Anchoring dental bridges into place on abutment teeth or implants.
  • Restoring functionality to an incredibly damaged tooth.
  • Shielding chipped, fractured, or cracked teeth.

The Dental Crown Process

While many dental practices require at least two appointments to get a dental crown, we can use CEREC technology to do it in one! At your appointment, you can expect the following steps:

  • Consultation. First, you’ll meet with one of our dentists to discuss your medical history and dental needs.
  • Examination. They will perform an oral exam to determine the current condition of your teeth and gums to verify if dental crowns are the right treatment for you.
  • Imaging. We use state-of-the-art digital imaging and impressions to get a comprehensive look at your teeth above and below the gumline.
  • Preparation. Your decayed or damaged tooth needs to be cleaned and any infection removed before your dental crown can be placed. Then, we’ll reshape it and remove some of the enamel so that your restoration fits like a glove.
  • Creation. Using an onsite mill, we can carve out your dental crown while you wait.
  • Placement. Finally, we’ll bond the final product over your tooth and ensure that it fits as intended.

  • An enhanced appearance. Our experts will color-match your dental crown to your natural teeth for a beautiful, life-like restoration.
  • Preservation. Placing a dental crown over a damaged tooth allows you to keep it rather than extract and replace it.
  • Protection. Your dental crown defends the underlying tooth against additional injury and decay.
