Dr. Correll is board-certified and uses the latest developments and technology in restorative and cosmetic dentistry to provide high-quality crowns and other dental work. He can preserve the remainder of your natural tooth and restore its function so you can chew or speak easily.

How Does CEREC Benefit Our Patients?
Traditional impression techniques require you to stay and wait for each set of impressions to “set” before you can leave. CEREC digital impressions are much faster (we can scan a full arch in less than a minute) so you can spend less time in the dentist's chair and get back to your daily routine.
When planning your dental crown treatment, we can match the shape of your crown to the surrounding teeth and position it so the restoration does not wear on neighboring teeth. Using CEREC’s 3D imaging, we can create high-fidelity models of your mouth to achieve the best results.
Traditional impressions must be packaged and shipped to a lab before work begins on your restoration, and an impression can warp out of shape before it arrives. Since CEREC saves the impression digitally, we can instantly transfer it to our lab without the risk of damaging the model.
CEREC Primescan takes away the unpleasant experience of sinking your teeth into the liquid molds used for traditional impressions. All you need to do is keep your mouth open as we scan your teeth using a digital “wand” that surveys every nook and cranny.
With CEREC Primescan, we can share the results of your scans almost immediately through a large touchscreen. Our dentists can point out the treatment site and walk you through each step of the process so you understand the procedure and know what to expect.
The Latest Techniques
Dr. Correll is a member of the esteemed American College of Prosthodontists, a major authority on the practice of restoring damaged or missing teeth. As a member, Dr. Correll has access to recent developments in dental technology and techniques so you can receive the latest and greatest treatments.
How Can a Crown Replace a Missing Tooth?
Even though Dr. Correll will do everything he can to save a tooth, sometimes an extraction is necessary for your health. If you have a missing tooth, a dental implant can be surgically placed in the jaw to replace the natural roots after a root canal. After a healing period, our dentists can attach a crown to the dental implant, replacing the visible portion of the missing tooth. Implants offer a number of cosmetic and restorative benefits over a traditional bridge. Implant dentistry can:
- Prevent deterioration of the jawbone
- Avoid the need to adjust healthy adjacent teeth for bridge support
- Provide improved stability, especially when chewing

"Best Dental Experience of My Life" Glowing Reviews From Our Nashville Patients
I’ve had several visits now with Dental Haus, and cannot speak more highly of the entire staff. From reception, to cleaning, to Dr. Corell, every single detail (down to the design) has been meticulous. Beyond cleanings, I’ve also had cavities filled and two crowns — the latter which they make in house the day of your appointment. If you’re looking for a new dentist, don’t hesitate to try Dental Haus.View on Google
Best dental experience of my life. They took the time to educate me on how I could improve my oral hygiene, didn’t try to tell me I needed any unnecessary treatments, were really clear on pricing for the work I needed done, and were kind and personable enough to put me at ease. Called my husband as I left and couldn’t stop saying good things — definitely the first time that’s happened about a dentist!View on Google
Questions About Receiving a Crown?
As a specialist in restorative treatments, Dr. Correll can examine your unique dental situation and offer the support you need. Our dentist can address any questions or concerns you have about receiving a dental crown and other services. We strive to be as transparent about the process as possible so you understand the treatment and what to expect from it.
We’re happy to answer any questions you have about dental crowns. Request a consultation with Dr. Correll to discuss your questions at length or call our Nashville office at:
Some patients may experience some mild side effects following the procedure. Local anesthesia tends to wear off after a few hours for most patients, after which they may begin to feel some lingering discomfort from the procedure. Some patients can also experience sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures around the crown. These effects should fade and can be managed with over-the-counter medicine and using toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth.
If your crown still feels uncomfortable after the next few days, contact our office so we can monitor the problem and make any necessary adjustments.
Taking Care of a Temporary Crown
While your custom crown is being made, we’ll provide a temporary crown for you to wear until the permanent crown is ready. A temporary crown protects your exposed tooth and allows you to go about your daily routine without any huge adjustments.
When taking care of a temporary crown, patients should:
Brush gently but thoroughly around the crown
Avoid sticky or hard foods
Floss side-to-side to avoid dislodging the crown
