Dental Crowns

What is a crown?

Crowns (or caps) are a restoration used to improve the strength or shape of your tooth. Crowns are most often recommended for teeth that are broken, worn, destroyed by tooth decay, or have had a root canal. Crowns can be tooth-colored or gold.

What does getting a crown involve?

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. During your first appointment, the dentist will numb and prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to allow for a properly formed crown. Then, your teeth will be scanned with our digital scanner, and the scanned images will be sent to the dental laboratory.  For most cases, the dental laboratory fabricates the permanent crown completely digitally, creating a very accurately fit and esthetic crown.

A temporary crown will be fabricated for you to wear home that day.

At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, your tooth will be cleaned, and your permanent crown will be evaluated to ensure the spacing, color, and bite are all accurate. The permanent crown will then be cemented into place and care instructions provided.
