What is a Dental Crown?

 A dental crown is a custom-made cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its health, function, and appearance. Our practice typically crafts them from porcelain, which is a material that uniquely mimics the natural appearance of tooth enamel by reflecting light, offering seamless and lifelike results. We typically recommend dental crowns for patients who:

  • Have had root canal treatment.
  • Have a cracked, damaged, or fractured tooth.
  • Have a tooth with a large filling in it.
  • Have a misshapen or imperfect tooth.

Our team will inform you of all of your treatment options and will always encourage you to preserve your smile whenever possible, as tooth extractions can lead to the need for more costly treatments down the road.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

Getting a dental crown typically takes place over the course of two appointments to our office. After you consent to moving forward with the treatment, Dr. Koch will prepare your tooth by removing a small amount of enamel. This will help the dental crown lay flush with the surrounding teeth and ensure a perfect fit. Our team will then capture a digital impression of your tooth that we can send off to our dental laboratory to craft your crown. Before you leave, we’ll secure a temporary over your prepared tooth.

Once your permanent crown arrives at our office, we’ll call you back in to place it. We’ll remove the temporary and make sure that the permanent crown is a perfect fit and color match before cementing it onto your prepared tooth.
