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.

There are four common types of crowns:
This type of crown is often used for teeth that are visible when smiling as they are made from a porcelain-based material that retains the look of your natural teeth.
Porcelain Fused to Metal
These crowns are known for their strength and durability while also allowing for a natural-looking restoration.
These may be used when more strength is needed, particularly for patients who grind their teeth at night.
Base Metal Alloys
These are strong and corrosion-resistant and are often used when there is less existing tooth structure available to support the crown restoration.
