When a tooth has suffered more damage or decay than can be repaired by a dental filling, we use a dental crown to restore its strength and function. Crowns give us the ability to remove the areas of a tooth that are compromised, while preserving the healthy tooth structure that remains. By saving your natural tooth, the supporting bone structure in the jaw is maintained and the adjacent teeth have more stability.
We offer same-day crowns at DDS Group, called CEREC crowns. This utilizes CAD-CAM technology, computer assisted design and computer assisted manufacturing.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Crowns
How long do dental crowns last?
The lifespan of your dental crown depends on a few factors: the material you choose, proper care, and the amount of wear your tooth receives. Crowns can last a long time with good oral hygiene and maintenance, but on average, you can expect a crown to last 5 to 10 years.
Do crowns ruin your teeth?
No, crowns don’t ruin your teeth—crowns save your natural teeth from needing to be extracted due to damage or decay. We use crowns to strengthen compromised teeth and restore their function.
Is it painful to have a crown put on your tooth?
No, getting a crown is no more painful than getting a cavity treated. When your tooth is being prepared for your crown, we use local anesthetics to ensure that you don’t feel any pain while we work.
What is the difference between a crown and a cap?
“Crown” and “cap” both mean the same thing. In the past, crowns were often referred to as caps, but now the term crown is more commonly used.
Can you crown front teeth?
Yes, if you have a front tooth that is damaged or decayed, it can be repaired with a dental crown. For teeth that show when you smile, we recommend choosing a tooth-colored material like porcelain or zirconia for a natural appearance.
What type of crown lasts the longest?
Today’s dental technology means that most crowns will last a decade or more with proper care. Different materials are used depending on location and function of the tooth.
