Your Tooth’s Lifeline
Teeth are tough, but they’re not invincible. Sometimes they get cracked, chipped, stained, or infected — and when that happens, dental crowns rescue them.
Made-to-measure, they replace the upper portion of a tooth, leaving you with a result that’s durable, comfortable, and indistinguishably natural-looking.
A Totally Natural Look
Dental crowns might not be a cosmetic procedure, but they’re still a big part of how your smile looks. With our extensive cosmetic dentistry experience, your smile will feel and look great.

We Know Dental Crowns
We’ve helped hundreds of patients save and restore their teeth with dental crowns.
Our dentists know that a tooth needs to feel strong, fit well, and look great, and their years of training and experience in cosmetic and implant dentistry give them the skills to achieve that.
Our Dental Crown Process
Step 1: Consultation
We’ll examine your tooth to see if a crown is the right option for you, and also answer any questions you have.
Step 2: Scans & Fitting
Next, we’ll take precise digital measurements to make sure your dental crown fits comfortably and looks natural.
Step 3: Crown Creation
We’ll begin carefully creating your dental crown, and you’ll receive a temporary crown to wear in the meantime.
Step 4: Crown Placement
Once your dental crown is ready, you’ll come in to have it secured to your tooth and refined for maximum comfort.
Step 5: Follow-up Care
After wearing your crown for a while, you might feel like more adjustments are needed. No problem – we’ll fix them for you.
Learn more about dental crowns.
Dental crowns are used to restore teeth that have severe damage or staining that other restorative treatments – like bonding or fillings – can’t effectively treat.
They’re also used to support other treatments like root canal therapy, where they protect your tooth from future infections, and dental implants, where they act as a complete tooth replacement.
Dental crowns and root canal therapy often go together, but not always.
If your tooth has an infection but is still strong, you may need root canal therapy but not a dental crown.
Likewise, if your tooth has a crack or a chip but no infection, you may need a dental crown but not root canal therapy.
Dental crowns are effective at:
- Restoring damaged teeth
- Protecting against re-infection
- Restoring your smile and confidence
- Looking natural
- Durably handling everyday use
Not everyone can, or should, get a dental crown. In cases where damage or staining are mild, alternative treatments like bonding, fillings, or whitening may be a better choice.
The same is true for severe cases: if a tooth is too damaged or infected to be restored by a dental crown, then alternatives like dental implants or bridges are the better options.
Taking good care of a dental crown is just like taking good care of a natural smile.
As long as you’re diligent about taking care of your teeth by flossing, brushing, rinsing with mouthwash, and coming in for regular checkups, your dental crowns will last for years.
Dental crowns are available in many different materials, but – in general – they’re made out of porcelain, metal alloys, or zirconia (a type of ceramic).
Why are there different materials? Because teeth have different needs depending on where they’re located in your mouth. For example, the teeth near the back of your mouth are responsible for a lot of grinding and chewing, so they need to be especially strong and durable.
Save your tooth. Love your smile.
