Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are designed to fit snugly over the top of a tooth’s natural structure.

We craft our dental crowns out of durable, beautiful dental porcelain. These 100% metal-free restorations offer the most lifelike results, so once your dental crown is placed, it will be practically indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.

How Are Dental Crowns Placed?

Typically, it only takes two appointments to repair a tooth with a dental crown. After ensuring you’re as comfortable as possible by numbing the area with a local anesthetic, we’ll prepare your tooth. Next, we’ll remove all the decayed or damaged tissues and cleaning the area. Then, to ensure the dental crown has enough room to fit in with the rest of your teeth, we may need to prepare the tooth by removing some enamel. At the end of your first appointment, we’ll take impressions of your tooth and cover it with a temporary dental crown.

It may take a week or two for your permanent dental crown to be created, so in the meantime, your temporary crown will keep your tooth safe from further damage or decay. Before you know it, you’ll be returning to our office, where we’ll remove your temporary restoration and replace it with your beautiful, permanent dental crown! Once we ensure your bite is comfortable, you’ll be ready to enjoy your happy, healthy, and newly repaired set of pearly whites!
