Dental Crowns

If you have a damaged tooth that can't be treated with a filling, there is another effective treatment that can save your tooth.

A dental crown fully encases a tooth, lending it the strength and support necessary for a healthy smile.

At Dental Haus Germantown in Nashville, TN, our dentists place beautifully crafted dental crowns to improve your oral health.

What Can Dental Crowns Treat?

Dental crowns are popular because they can treat such a wide range of conditions; in fact, they can be used in restorative and cosmetic dentistry plans. Our dentists may recommend dental crowns for:

  • Large Cavities
  • Root Canal Infection
  • Chipped Tooth
  • Fractured Tooth
  • Worn Tooth
  • Missing Tooth

The Dental Crown Treatment Process

When patients have dental crowns placed at our Nashville, TN, practice, they can expect several streamlined steps:

Numb the Tooth

To begin treatment, we will numb the tooth and surrounding area so you feel completely comfortable throughout treatment.

Treat the Infection

If there are any infected areas of the tooth due to cavities or root canal infection, our dentists will perform the necessary treatment to clean and disinfect the tooth.

Prep the Tooth

Next, we will remove a small amount of the outer tooth structure so the crown can fit over the tooth.

Impressions

To craft a crown that achieves an excellent fit and appearance, we will take impressions of your mouth after your tooth has been prepped.

Temporary Crown

While your crown is being made, you will wear a temporary crown to protect your tooth.

Fabrication

Your crown will be made out of a solid block of porcelain. Dental porcelain is both natural-looking and durable, making it an ideal material for dental crowns.

Crown Placement

When your custom crown is ready, you can return to our office to have it secured in place.

How Does a Crown Replace a Missing Tooth?

If you have a missing tooth, a dental implant can be surgically placed in the jaw to replace the natural tooth root. After a healing period, our dentists can attach a crown to the dental implant, replacing the visible portion of the missing tooth. This option offers a number of cosmetic and restorative benefits over a traditional bridge. An implant-supported crown can:

  • Prevent deterioration of the jawbone
  • Avoid the need to adjust healthy adjacent teeth for bridge support
  • Provide improved stability, especially when chewing
