Dental Crowns in Centuria, WI

Purpose of a Dental Crown

A dental crown is a tooth-like prosthetic cap that covers your tooth to reinforce the strength and appearance of a damaged tooth. During a dental crown procedure, we cap your affected tooth with a prosthetic crown that’s meant to look just like your natural tooth.

Its purpose is to restore the function and aesthetic of your smile. The crown placement can be completed in one or two appointments.

Reasons for a Dental Crown

There are various reasons we may recommend a dental crown to restore your oral health. These include:

  • To cover a weak tooth
  • To repair a severely cracked, broken, or worn down tooth
  • To reinforce a tooth with a large filling
  • To improve the function of your bite
  • To repair misshaped or severely discolored teeth

While dental crowns are a solution to fix many dental issues, they’re also used to complete other dental procedures such as a dental bridge, root canal therapy, or dental implant.

Same-Day CEREC® Crowns

If you don’t’ want to wait another day to enjoy your new smile, CEREC same-day crowns may be your solution. At River Birch Dental, we are equipped with the latest CEREC® CAD/CAM technology that allows you to receive your crown in one, simple, 90-minute appointment.

The crowning process can be completed in the following six steps:

  1. During your consultation, one of our dentists will discuss which crown is best for your specific needs
  2. The affected tooth is numbed and if you prefer, we can administer nitrous oxide gas (laughing gas) to put you at ease
  3. The natural tooth is shaped to ensure the crown fits perfectly
  4. The tooth is then digitally scanned into a computer
  5. A crown is designed by the doctor and milled by the CEREC machine
  6. Finally, it’s polished and cemented into place

There is no need for a second appointment, and the crown is ready for use immediately.

Traditional Crowns

If it would be more beneficial for you to receive a traditional crown, you’ll have to come in for an additional appointment. The process is the same, the only difference is that instead of creating your dental crown at our practice, we’ll send your impression to a laboratory where they’ll craft your new tooth.

During your first appointment, we’ll provide you with a temporary crown so you don’t have to go another day without your tooth. Both procedures restore your tooth’s function and appearance so you can return to your normal life without hesitation.
