Great strides in dental technology allow us to create crowns with greater strength and a more natural appearance than ever before. These custom-made dental prosthetics can help rebuild a smile compromised by trauma or decay, restoring functionality as well as an attractive appearance. Best of all, our practice can create and place dental crowns in a single visit. Our advanced on-site technology makes it possible for you to arrive with a compromised smile, and leave with a comfortable, healthy smile.

Dental crowns can serve both practical and cosmetic purposes. They are most commonly used to cover a tooth that has been treated for decay or trauma. The final step in most root canal procedures is the placement of a dental crown. If you are missing a single tooth, a crown can restore a dental implant. Meanwhile, the crown is custom-crafted to match the color of your natural teeth and the dimensions of your smile.
We are very excited to offer our patients same-day dental crowns. The traditional method of creating dental crowns required a minimum of two visits to the dentist, separated by two to three weeks. At the practice of Dr. Davis we understand how precious our patients' time is, and we use CEREC technology to restore our patients' smiles quickly and effectively. After treating your tooth, we can take a digital impression that is transmitted to a computer-guided milling tool. This sophisticated technology crafts your restoration from a single block of porcelain, specially selected to match the color of your natural teeth. After about an hour, your custom restoration is ready to place. Finally, rather than having to wear a temporary restoration for weeks, you can leave our office with a comfortable, healthy new smile.

To ensure that your crowns provide you with maximum benefits, it is important to alter your flossing technique when flossing near the crown. To avoid dislodging the crown, pull floss from front to back near the tooth, rather than pulling the floss up or down. Proper oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist will also help your crowns to last for many years.
Dental crowns preserve your teeth, balance your bite, and help you to once again experience the many benefits of a healthy, complete smile. After patients have laid the foundation for a healthy smile, they may wish to combine the procedure with a cosmetic treatment, such as teeth whitening or porcelain veneers, for enhanced aesthetics. Crowns may also be integrated into a smile makeover. If you would like to schedule an appointment, or learn more about our cosmetic and restorative dentistry services, contact us today. We look forward to helping you experience the benefits of excellent dental health.
