Dental Crowns

We sculpt and place dental crowns over the outside of your tooth, allowing the tooth to look and act naturally once again. Even if most of your tooth has been compromised or damaged by tooth decay or anything else, porcelain crowns can restore the look and function of your tooth to normal. Crowns can also be specially molded to look exactly like your original teeth, and in many cases, we can design crowns that work even better than your natural teeth ever did. For the most part, crowns are much thicker and stronger than veneers; this means they can effectively cover and protect more severely damaged teeth. Partial crowns are also available as an alternative to suit the needs and circumstances of some patients. These partial crowns are less expensive than regular crowns and conceal smaller blemishes on your teeth.

The Downsides

Crowns take quite a bit of time to fabricate, so most patients who need them will need to receive temporary crowns while waiting for their permanent ones to arrive. Various factors can affect how quickly crowns are produced, so some crowns will be ready much faster than others. Crowns are also made to be durable, often more durable than natural teeth. Because of this, they are generally not as flexible as your normal teeth would be, which makes eating certain foods more difficult. Patients who grind their teeth habitually will need special mouthguards to protect their crowns from unnecessary damage and wear. These mouthguards will also serve to protect the rest of your teeth from further damage. Crowns can sometimes increase a tooth’s sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.

Maintaining Your Crowns

You can care for your crowns in the same way as your natural teeth: by brushing and flossing regularly. Once we’ve put in your crowns, we’ll schedule you for a follow-up exam to make sure everything is working as intended and to fix any unexpected problems that may have arisen.

Our Happy Patients

"When it comes to going to the dentist I'm not going to lie, I get anxiety. But as soon as I walked in everyone was so nice, to the girl who took my xrays, to Cyndi who cleaned my teeth, and to the dentist. They made me feel comfortable which was a big plus! Big thanks to Cyndi for being so patient with me, especially being the last person to be seen today. She explained my plan in detail to make sure I understood everything. Definitely would recommend this place!"
