ADDRESS COSMETIC AND ORAL HEALTH ISSUES
Dental Decay or Trauma
Left untreated, certain concerns may not be remedied with dental fillings. For teeth weakened by substantial tooth decay or damage, our dentists can place a crown to provide strength and support.
Root Canal Infection
When decay affects the inner portion of a tooth, a root canal procedure can remove the infection. Typically, your dentist will recommend placing a dental crown to protect the tooth afterward.

Worried about Cost?
FINANCING OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE
Our dental team understands that the cost of dentistry can be overwhelming. Whether you are interested in a porcelain, zirconia, or gold crown, we’re committed to helping patients afford the care they want and need. Insurance should cover a portion, if not all, of your treatment, and we work hard to maximize your coverage.
Some patients will still incur out-of-pocket costs so we also accept flexible financing. We work with a number of third-party lending companies such as CareCredit®, Lending Club, and Green Sky® to make treatment more accessible for all. If you have any questions regarding the process, we’re more than happy to walk you through it.
What to Expect during Treatment
Most crowns can be designed, fabricated, and placed all in one visit.
Once any decayed portions have been removed, your dentist will carefully file down the tooth
to reshape it to an appropriate size for your dental crown.
Next, we will take digital impressions of your tooth using an intraoral camera. The impressions
are then sent to our on-site milling machine.
Once the crown is ready, the dentist places it over the tooth and makes sure it is a comfortable
fit. The crown is then secured to the tooth with dental cement to complete the process.
