How do I know if I need a dental crown?
Crowns Look Just Like Natural Teeth
What are my options when selecting a dental crown?
We Can Offer Premium Crown Treatment
Dental crowns can be placed over an existing natural tooth, or be supported by implants. While implant-supported crowns are a more invasive form of treatment, they are also the most stable, long-lasting form of restorative dental treatment. Your dentist will first place the implants, which fuse with your jawbone over several months in a process known as osseointegration. Once complete, we will take impressions and craft a custom dental crown that secures to the implant for a natural-looking, durable restoration.
With state-of-the-art CEREC technology, the dentist can prepare an affected tooth, take impressions, and restore your smile in a single appointment. Our high-tech CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) system takes digital scans of your mouth and uploads them directly to a computer where the dentist designs your restoration. The digital impressions are transferred to the in-house CEREC manufacturing machine where the crown is carved from ceramic. This revolutionary system cuts treatment time down from a few weeks to a few hours in a fast, convenient procedure.

What materials are dental crowns made from?
Selecting Your Restoration Materials
Porcelain is a highly durable material that mimics the qualities of natural teeth. Porcelain is a favorite among patients and dentists alike for its natural-looking end results and endurable lifespan.
Patients that chose to undergo same-day CEREC crown treatment will have their tooth fit with a custom ceramic crown. The dentist will match the shade of ceramic to your existing natural teeth to blend the restoration in seamlessly with your smile.
Crowns made from resin can be more affordable than other types of crowns. Unfortunately, all resin is not as strong as porcelain or other blends of restorative materials and can wear down over the course of time.
Stainless steel, gold, and zirconia have all been historically used by dentists to construct crowns. These materials are very strong and long-lasting. However, they do not match your teeth which some patients find distracting. We generally only use metals when restoring a tooth in the back of the mouth such as a molar, or we coat the metal crowns with a layer of porcelain for a more natural-looking finish.

"The process from start to finish was easy and the staff was very helpful."
Absolutely love everything about them. The entire staff is friendly and kind. I had two implants with bone grafts put in on my front teeth. Dr. Han was able to give me temporary crowns while the graft and implants healed. The process from start to finish was easy and the staff was very helpful. I'm in the process of getting two more implants put in my back teeth. Highly recommend.View On Google

How do I maintain my dental crown?
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Patients treated with a crown should practice good oral hygiene. This includes brushing twice daily and flossing at least once a day to prevent plaque build-up and bacterial infections.
Avoid Excessive Force
Refrain from habits such as grinding or clenching your teeth or chewing ice, as they can cause additional strain and wear down your crown.
Attend Regular Dental Check-Ups
While a crown protects the structure of a tooth, it cannot prevent other dental issues such as gum disease. It is important to attend regular check-ups and cleanings at the dentist's office to avoid any damage to your long-term oral health.
A lack of dental insurance or payment options should not hold you back from receiving the care you need. At our practice, we accept CareCredit®. This medical financing plan allows you to receive the care you need when you need it, with payment plans that fit your budget.
For patients that have dental insurance, our practice accepts all major PPOs. Dental crown treatment is typically covered partially or completely when restoring damage to a tooth. Our office will work directly with your provider for your convenience to help alleviate any out-of-pocket expenses.
