Dental Crowns

Crowns Properly Protect and Support Weak Teeth

Crowns are primarily used for three reasons: to properly protect a weak tooth from breaking; support a tooth with fracture or crack lines; or support a tooth with a very large filling that’s susceptible to breaking.

Why Getting A Crown Is More Comfortable With Us

Receiving a dental crown is a two-visit process. Your first appointment will take around 1 1/2 hours, and our team will ensure you are completely comfortable and feel no pain during the procedure. Sedation options include anesthesia and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help you relax.

Then we’ll use digital technology to take an impression of your reshaped tooth (no more messy and bad-tasting impression materials and no more gagging!) and send the images to the lab so a permanent crown can be made.

We’ll make a custom temporary crown in-office that fits your tooth comfortably. You will wear it for two to three weeks while your permanent crown is being fabricated.

Your second visit lasts around 30 minutes. During this appointment, we’ll remove the temporary crown and cement your permanent crown in place.

We look forward to keeping your gums and teeth healthy for a lifetime!
