Broken Tooth? Here's How a Crown Can Restore Your Smile
How Long Do Crown Procedures Take?
1st Dental Appointment
Your dentist will reshape your compromised tooth by removing damaged or decayed areas. Next, precise impressions will be made so your custom-fitted, permanent restoration can be fabricated at our partner lab, known in the dental industry for its "Ritz-Carlton" quality product. Your dentist will fit you with a temporary crown during this appointment to protect the exposed portion of your affected tooth. Special dental care instructions will be given so your temporary crown doesn't break or come loose.
2nd Dental Appointment
Your permanent dental crown is ready to be secured in place using strong, long-lasting dental cement. First, your temporary crown will be removed. Then, your dentist will make adjustments to the permanent restoration before bonding it in place, making sure it fits and functions perfectly. Now you're ready to confidently smile, chew, and speak normally again. With proper care, your restoration could last up to fifteen years.

Kinds of Dental Crowns
Metal crowns are usually made from gold or platinum alloys. These durable crowns are perfect for molars due to their resistance to high-pressure chewing. These restorations have a metallic color so they're mainly placed in the back of the mouth and not used for front teeth.
These are metallic alloy crowns covered with a porcelain coating. They can easily be customized to match the shade of your natural teeth. However, the metallic interior can sometimes show through the porcelain coating over time.
These 100% ceramic crowns are among the best dental restorations available, as the porcelain material can be closely matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth. Porcelain crowns are used in all areas of the mouth and are recommended for patients with metal allergies.
Zirconia crowns are top-quality, biocompatible restorations recommended for their strength, durability, and natural-looking qualities. Zirconia is non-metallic, so there are no allergy issues with these superior crowns. Zirconia can mimic any shade to match your teeth.
These state-of-the-art all-ceramic crowns are the highest quality tooth restorations available. This type of crown has all the excellent qualities of zirconia restorations but is even stronger and more damage-resistant.
Replace Missing Teeth with Implant-Supported Crowns
If you've lost a tooth or several teeth due to decay, injury, or illness, our dentists may recommend dental implants. This procedure involves having ultra-strong titanium posts surgically placed into your jawbone. After a healing period, natural-looking restorations will be attached to the dental implants to fill the gaps in your smile.
