What Are Dental Crowns?
Essentially, a dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that’s designed to fit snugly over the top of a tooth. It encapsulates the entire visible surface (its crown) to hold the remaining natural structure together and fortify it. Dr. Carollo or Dr. Sonia can craft your restoration out of metal, porcelain fused with metal, or dental ceramic depending on if it is being placed in the back, middle, or front of your smile, respectively. During your consultation, Dr. Carollo or Dr. Sonia will fully explain your options, offer their recommendations, and help you determine which material is right for you.

What’s the Process for Getting Dental Crowns?
In most cases, we can design, create, and place your dental crown in just two quick appointments. First, Dr. Carollo or Dr. Sonia will remove a small amount of enamel to make enough room for the crown to fit over the tooth. Then, they’ll take impressions of the area and send that information off to a dental laboratory, where they’ll be used to create your personalized crown. You’ll wear a temporary crown until you come back to our office when we receive your permanent restoration. Once we’ve bonded it in place and ensured your bite feels comfortable, you’ll be ready to enjoy your beautiful, functional smile!
