What Is A Porcelain Crown?

A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement.

When we have decided to go ahead with a full crown restoration, we will set aside 2-3 appointments for the entire process. Although the majority of crowns are completed in two visits, there is sometimes a need for a third visit to ensure a proper fit.

The procedure begins with the removal of all decay in the tooth. Once we have removed the decay, we will take an impression of the tooth. This impression will be sent to our lab where your new restoration will be crafted. While this new tooth is created, we will provide you with a temporary restoration. Our temporary restorations will resemble your natural teeth so that you can continue with your daily life without worrying about a missing or incompatible tooth.

During your second visit to the office, we will proceed with the placement of your final restoration. This crown will be fitted comfortably into the mouth. We will make every effort to ensure that the new tooth feels exactly like one of your natural teeth. The final step in the process is to cement the crown into your mouth, leaving you with a beautifully restored smile.

Review
What People Are Saying

The staff is very nice and very helpful. Amy has done a great job with my fillings (5 of them so far) and is very professional but makes me feel comfortable at the same time.

I have very sensitive gums and Dr. Cook did everything she could to make sure I was comfortable during my whole cleaning. She took the time to see what was bothering me and what was great. I have definitely found my new dentist office.

Michelle C. on Google

I would give everyone that works here a 12 star review. I was given a teeth cleaning by an experienced Dental Hygienist (Elizabeth) that takes her time to do a great job and explained in detail what she is doing and is concerned that you're comfortable. Dr Cook also was very detailed when she examined my teeth and made very good recommendations.

Susan A. on Yelp

Every single person here is genuinely extremely kind and caring. I have been coming here for years and even on my first visit it felt like I was coming to friends and family to hang out.

Matt P. on Yelp

Amy Cook has treated me absolutely competently for many years. I've never had one problem with any dental work or in-office pain management protocol and, as an added bonus, her referrals to colleagues for specialized care have resulted in equally excellent treatment.

JoAnne C. on Yelp

If anyone is looking for a general dentistry office, this is the place to go. All the staff is very friendly and make you feel at home. Dr. Cook and Dr. Smart are perfectionist and their dentistry is nothing but perfection.
