A dental crown is a small cap that is fitted to a tooth in order to affect it’s size, functionality, strength, and appearance. Our team specializes in natural, long-lasting dental crowns that restore your smile’s natural beauty!
Dental crowns used to always be placed over two visits. Now same-day crowns are often an option.
During your visit, our team will prepare your teeth for your dental crowns – this involves removing a little of the outside surface of the tooth, enabling the crown to fit perfectly over the tooth, leaving a seamless and natural-looking final result. Then, depending on what’s best for you, our team may create a mold of your teeth and send it to a lab where your final crowns will be expertly-crafted. Or we may be able to use digital and cad cam technology to create a lifelike crown while you wait.
If it turns out you would be best served by having your crown(s) made outside the office, not to worry, while you wait for your final crowns to be completed, our doctors will give you temporary crowns that resemble your natural teeth to protect your teeth until your final crowns arrive.
When the crowns are completed, whether on the same visit or when you return, our team will make sure your crown(s) fit and your bite is perfectly aligned and in a comfortable position. Your crowns are then bonded to your teeth leaving you with a beautiful, natural-looking smile!
