What are crowns?

Crowns are artificial teeth or dental caps that fit over an existing permanent tooth. The Paxton office offers same-day crowns using cutting-edge CEREC technology to reduce the need for two separate dental visits. The Gardner office provides digital impressions for dental crowns.

Traditional crowns

Traditional crowns are hollow and fit over the entire surface of a damaged, weak, or decaying tooth.

Implant-supported crowns

Implant-supported crowns are attached to dental implants (artificial tooth roots) and replace missing or extracted permanent teeth.

What are the benefits of dental crowns?

Dental crowns at Family Dental Group offer many benefits for your dental health. They strengthen and protect your teeth and improve their appearance, function, and feel. Crowns are sturdy, long-lasting, and look just like your natural teeth. They transform an imperfect smile.

Are crowns right for me?

The Family Dental Group team asks about your oral health history, symptoms, lifestyle, and treatment preferences to determine if you’re a candidate for dental crowns. They examine your teeth and might take digital X-rays to better view your entire mouth, including your tooth roots and jawbone. Your dentist then personalizes a treatment plan.

You might need bone grafting and/or dental implant placement before receiving an implant-supported crown.

What happens when receiving dental crowns?

Your dentist digitally scans your mouth to create custom-fitted crowns that conform perfectly to your natural tooth. They first clean the affected tooth and remove decay. When the new crown is ready, your provider bonds it to the affected tooth, ensuring that it fits comfortably.

If you need an implant-supported crown, your dentist could recommend bone grafting. If your jawbone is strong enough, they insert a metal tooth root (implant) into your jaw and attach an implant-supported crown to the implant to replace a missing permanent tooth.

What should I expect after I receive my new crown?

After you receive a dental crown, you must properly care for it to reduce the risk of damage. Don’t chew on hard objects, floss your teeth daily, brush after meals, and visit the Family Dental Group experts for routine dental cleanings.
