Restore strength & function of a tooth

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.

Tooth Decay

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.

Root Canal

After a root canal, a dental crown provides reinforcement and restores functionality and shape to your tooth.

Dental Implant

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.
