What Is a Dental Crown?

Also known as “dental caps,” these restorations are designed to completely cover the entire top side of teeth that have been damaged or decayed. The materials used can involve all porcelain or all ceramic, but our team typically ensures that everything is metal-free. Dental crowns are usually reserved for patients who need to address minor to moderate damage to their teeth, tooth decay, or who have recently undergone root canal therapy to protect the tooth.

The Dental Crown Process

For traditional dental crowns, you’ll typically undergo an initial consultation with your team to evaluate your situation and determine the best way to repair your tooth. Once your treatment plan has been developed, we can begin by altering the compromised tooth to make room for your restoration. We’ll then take impressions of your smile and send them to a dental lab for fabrication. This can typically take a few weeks to complete, so we’ll provide you with a temporary crown to protect your prepared tooth.

Once the final restoration has been completed, you’ll return to have it placed. We’ll make any necessary minor adjustments and ensure your bite is correct before sending you off to enjoy your newly restored pearly whites.

Our office also offers CEREC one-visit crowns, which are relatively similar to traditional ones. However, instead of waiting a couple of weeks for your restorations, we can complete them in-house in just a couple of hours!
