Are you dealing with a damaged or severely worn tooth? At Hover Dental Group, our dentist and professional team offer dental crowns, a durable and aesthetic solution to restore your smile’s integrity and appearance.

Understanding Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, often referred to as “caps,” are custom-fitted coverings placed over a tooth. They are designed to restore a tooth’s shape, size, strength and appearance. Crowns are used in various situations, including:

  • Protecting a weak tooth from breaking
  • Restoring a broken or severely worn tooth
  • Covering and supporting a tooth with a large filling
  • Holding a dental bridge in place
  • Covering a dental implant
  • Improving the appearance of a discolored or misshapen tooth

The Dental Crown Process

Getting a dental crown usually requires two visits. But at our office, we use CEREC technology to create same-day crowns. The process of getting a CEREC crown is efficient and streamlined:

  • Digital Impressions: No need for uncomfortable traditional molds. We use digital impressions to create a precise 3D image of your tooth.
  • Design and Milling: The crown is designed in-office to match your tooth’s shape, size and color. It is then milled from a ceramic block in our CEREC machine.
  • Placement: The crown is fitted, adjusted if necessary and bonded to your tooth, all within the same appointment.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

  • Durability: Crowns are long-lasting and can endure the rigors of daily chewing
  • Aesthetic Match: They can be made to match the color of your natural teeth
  • Protection: Crowns safeguard the underlying tooth from further damage or decay
  • Functionality: They restore the full functionality of your tooth, including comfortable chewing and speaking
  • Versatility: Suitable for both restorative and cosmetic dental needs
