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.

How Do Dental Crowns Work?

Why Are Dental Crowns Important? Benefits of High-Quality Treatment

They Restore Function

The crowns our dentist places are crafted from premium porcelain, restoring your ability to bite and chew in complete comfort.

They're a Conservative Solution

Treating a damaged tooth now and restoring it with a crown can help you avoid the need for extraction. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant is more expensive than restoring a tooth, so it pays to take action as soon as you notice an issue with your tooth.

They Look Natural

The premium porcelain we use isn't just strong—it's also virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. We customize your crown to blend seamlessly with your smile for a natural look. Plus, we prefer materials like IPS Empress which is renowned for its lifelike qualities.

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
Implant crown
An implant-supported crown is the most comprehensive way to replace a missing tooth.

Porcelain vs. Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal Crowns

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns used to be the best option for those who wanted a durable crown that was also somewhat natural-looking. The metal provided a sturdy base, while the porcelain exterior attempted to conceal the metal. However, the metal tended to show through along the gumline with porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, making the restoration look artificial. Our Nashville practice uses all-porcelain crowns for a natural-looking, durable result.

Porcelain crowns have a slightly translucent quality that allows light to pass through, just as it would with natural enamel. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns frequently look artificial because the dark metal stops light from passing through the porcelain exterior. 

State-of-the-Art Technology 

Our Nashville team uses state-of-the-art technology like CEREC® Primescan to provide comfort and convenience for our patients. CEREC Primescan is a computer system that uses a “wand” with a scanner at the end to take pictures of your mouth and build a virtual 3D model, known as a “digital impression."
CEREC system

How Does CEREC Benefit Our Patients?

CEREC’s system features several benefits that can improve your dental experience at our boutique-style office near downtown Nashville. Patients can enjoy several benefits such as: 

Faster Appointments 

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. 

Amazing Results 

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. 

Instant Transfers 

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. 

Increased Comfort 

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.   

Transparent Practices

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 Dental Crown Treatment Process

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

Choosing to work with a member of the American College of Prosthodontists for your dental crown means you can benefit from the highest caliber of care.

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 natural tooth.


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 natural tooth.


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. Our dentist can attach your crown to the natural tooth or a dental implant.

Recovery Process 

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.
