What are Crowns?

Crowns are a long-term solution to effectively treat decay, cavities, and broken teeth when fillings are no longer viable, or after you have gone through root canal therapy. Some patients choose to get dental crowns to simply improve the look of their natural teeth.

Crowns are tooth-shaped "caps" that are placed on fractured or broken teeth, teeth with large fillings, or on teeth that have undergone root canal therapy. Dental crowns stabilize and strengthen the existing tooth (whether it is fractured, decayed, or required a root canal), and/or improve the original tooth's appearance.

One-Visit Crowns

Most dental crowns require two visits or more to your dentist. But at First Choice Dental, CEREC dental crowns are done in only one visit. During your appointment, we’ll prepare your tooth and take digital impressions (no more biting down on mouth trays filled with impression material).

Next, your dentist will make your permanent crown in the digital lab, and then will place and fit the crown to make sure it looks and feels as natural and comfortable as your own tooth—all in the same visit. A typical one-day crown appointment takes three hours from start to finish.

Are you old enough to remember those coming-of-age 80s movies where some awkward teenager sat on the bus sporting what appeared to be full-body orthodontia? Did those scenes or the warnings of being locked forever in your first kiss with another metal mouth deter you from getting braces as a kid? Read More

Summer is here! Time for the cookouts, maybe a little camping, and… braces!

June 1, 2017

If you are planning braces for your child, summer is the perfect time to get her started. Though she may not appreciate the fact that she won’t miss class time, it will mean less stress for you.  There’s no back and forth checking her in and out of school, no wondering if she remembered to pick up the work that she missed. I know, you’re imagining the cascade effect of a missed assignment, a lower grade, not getting into an elite college, and suddenly that Nobel Prize is out of reach. Read More
