Improve your health and smile in just one day with CEREC™ Dental Crowns.
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.
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.

This year marks an anniversary that most people in Dane County don’t know anything about—but it’s one that almost all of us can be thankful for. Because back in 1948, Dane County started adding fluoride to our municipal water supply. And while that may not seem like a big deal, studies prove that people who live and grow in communities with fluoridated water experience less tooth decay. A simple, cost effective way to help everyone have heathier teeth? At First Choice Dental, we think that’s something to celebrate. Read More

In summer we wedge in appointments for the kids; a physical for fall sports, an eye exam, plus a semi-annual dental cleaning and checkup. And this could be the summer your kid embraces braces. There’s something about your kids orthodontics that triggers deeply held emotions! 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
