Do you have an unattractive, stubborn, or broken tooth? If so, we have the perfect solution for you! Dental crowns are great dental restorations that cover your tooth and improve the health, function, and appearance of your smile.

What can a dental crown do?
A dental crown can do many things, like improve the strength of a weak tooth, restore the structure of a broken tooth, and improve the appearance of a severely misshapen or discolored tooth. A dental crown can also save a tooth that has been severely damaged by decay, support a tooth that has a large filling, and improve the appearance of your smile. In addition, a crown can hold a dental bridge in place and cover a dental implant.

What is the process of placing a dental crown?
The process of placing a dental crown typically requires two visits to your dental office. However, our dental office provides same day crowns! Dr. Ronald Fuhrmann will take a few X-rays and will closely examine your tooth, making sure a dental crown is the best choice for you. Then, he will numb the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. Once the mouth is numb, Dr. Ronald Fuhrmann will shave down the surface of your tooth to create room for the dental crown. Essentially, using E4D CAD/CAM technology, we can design, create, and place your custom dental crown on in the same day! We will make sure the fit, color, and shape of your new crown is perfect for your smile.

How do I care for a dental crown?
Your dental crown will not need any special care. All you need to do is brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth with mouthwash daily. You will also need to attend a dental cleaning every six months to keep your crown and smile in tip-top shape.
