Dental Crowns

Same Day Crown


Do you want to improve the shape, size, strength or appearance of one or more teeth? You are not alone – many people turn to us for dental crowns and bridges to improve their smiles. 


A dental crown is a cap or cover that a dentist places over a tooth and cements in place. The crown covers and protects the entire visible portion of the tooth.

People get dental crowns for a number of reasons. You may benefit from a dental crown if you have:

  • A cavity that is too large for a filling
  • Worn down, cracked, or otherwise weakened tooth
  • A weak tooth in danger of breaking
  • A broken tooth
  • Had a root canal, and could benefit from the protection the crown provides to the restored tooth
  • A dental implant
  • A badly discolored or irregularly shaped tooth that negatively affects your smile

Dental crowns also act as anchors for dental bridges, which serve as replacements for missing teeth. The dentist puts a crown on the teeth on either side of the missing tooth; the crowns support the bridge that spans the gap. 


The placement of dental crowns usually takes two appointments that occur several weeks apart: the dentist makes impressions to send away to the lab in the first visit then places the bridge during the second visit, after the crown has come back from the lab. However, we use advanced Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics technology (CEREC®) and this advanced technology allows you to get your dental crowns in just one visit.

Our dentists evaluate the tooth to be sure it can support a crown and prepare the tooth to accept the crown. Preparing the tooth involves filing it down or building it up so that it supports the crown properly. Our dentists then make digital 3D impressions of your teeth, which the CEREC software uses to create various crown designs. We then mill or grind the crown according to the CEREC designs for a custom crown.

Our dentists will place the crown in your mouth to check the color and fit. After making any necessary adjustments, they will cement the crown permanently to the prepared tooth.

A dental crown can be one of the best improvements you will ever make for your smile.
