Conditions Treated with Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are recommended for a variety of indications, including:

  • Fractured teeth
  • Large dental fillings
  • Root canal therapy
  • Extensive tooth decay
  • Deep stains

Dental crowns can be used to correct deficiencies in function and appearance, making them suitable for both cosmetic and restorative procedures.

What is a Crown?

Crowns are the top, hard, outer shell of a tooth that covers, protects, seals and strengthens the tooth. Because it’s the only part of the tooth that cannot repair itself, when damaged from decay or injury, a new crown may have to be created. The new crown fits over the entire top of the tooth just like your original crown.

A Camera Instead of Messy Impressions

After we prepare your tooth, we use this ultra precise camera that takes a digital image of your tooth. This eliminates the need for messy putty and impression materials that most patients hate – including the gag-inducing feeling of a tray in your mouth.

This image takes into account exactly how your tooth should look and how your bite should feel. The image is then uploaded to a computer that designs the porcelain crown for your tooth.
