Perfectly seamless tooth restoration
A dental crown is a “cap” which is placed over a tooth that has been broken, treated by root canal, stained, damaged by decay, or is misshapen. Individually crafted and custom-fitted dental crowns blend in with the tone and contour of your natural teeth and can last for more than 15 years. Sometimes crowns are also used to hold a dental bridge or top off a dental implant or they may be applied for certain cosmetic modifications or aesthetic purposes.
What’s the process of getting a crown?
A dental crown procedure usually requires two office visits and is performed by a dentist.
Here is how we go about it:
Examining and preparing the tooth
As with any other kind of dental treatment, everything starts with the dental examination, during which the doctor will check and clean your teeth so they are prepared for an easy fit. If the tooth is broken or severely damaged by decay, we will remove the damaged areas so the dental crown can do its work protecting the tooth from further decay.
Shaping the Crown
Next, with the help of dental putty, we will take an impression of your teeth that will be used to construct full porcelain crowns. You will then be provided with a temporary dental crown that will be fitted onto your teeth until your following appointment. If you are missing a tooth and wish to replace it with a dental implant, we will take an impression of the implant and the surrounding teeth. Our lab will use the impression to manufacture your own custom crown.
Placing the Crown
At your second appointment, we will remove your temporary crown and replace it with a permanent crown. The crown will be secured using durable dental cement or a hidden screw. To complete the process, we will polish your crown and make any necessary adjustments to ensure your comfort and security.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.
Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.
