Natural-looking porcelain crowns
Achieve maximum results with the most minimally invasive methods possible! We offer high-quality porcelain dental crowns to bring back the original shape, size, and color of a tooth.
There are a few reasons why you might need a dental crown — to repair extensive tooth decay (cavity,) restore a tooth after root canal treatment, or as the final step of a dental implant. Crowns can also be used to fix badly worn-down teeth. Whatever the reason, Dr. Starr and our team will ensure your experience is simple and focused on your comfort.
A dental crown can restore integrity to your tooth if decay has spread over a large surface area and cannot be corrected with a filling.
After a root canal, a dental crown provides reinforcement and restores functionality and shape to your tooth.
As the final step of a dental implant procedure, a dental crown covers the abutment and acts as your new, beautiful tooth.
What it’s like getting a crown
The procedure for a dental crown is simple for you. After preparing the tooth, we’ll create a digital model of your tooth using a 3D scanner— no goopy impressions needed! We send this impression to a local dental lab that’s highly experienced in crafting natural-looking, durable crowns.
Often within 2 weeks, we will receive your custom restoration back. We’ll invite you back to our office to bond your crown into place, check your bite, and answer any final questions.
We’re dedicated to your safety & comfort
Our team prioritizes your safety above all else. We’ve expanded safety measures to ensure peace of mind for our patients, staff, and community during COVID-19.

I lost a crown, can you help?
If you have a crown that feels loose, is cracked, or has been lost, we can help. A compromised crown puts your health at risk, so don’t delay in contacting us. In some cases, we may be able to bond the crown back in place. It’s also possible that a new crown is the best choice.
