Dental Crowns – Johnston, IA
Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We can replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s tooth is extreme, we can use porcelain/ceramic crowns to make the tooth appear “like new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems. Crowns are used as a long-lasting correction of cavitated, cracked, or broken teeth. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology.
How long does it take to get a dental crown?
A crown can be completed in a single visit at our office, thanks to our E4D CAD/CAM technology. Initially, we will anesthetize the area. Then, we will remove decay and cracks and shape the tooth to proper contour. Next, we will create a digital scan of the tooth and use that scan to design your new crown on our E4D computer. Our in-office mill will then create your crown in less than 20 minutes. We will try the crown in and make any adjustments we need to make, before glazing the crown and baking it in a special oven. Finally, we will cement the crown in place and you will have a new beautiful-looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crowns are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused through accident, disease, or wear and tear. Cracked teeth are also candidates for dental crowns. Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Placing crowns on these cracked teeth relieves the pain and allows a return to full dental function. The crowns will also protect these teeth, so that the cracks do not spread and cause tooth fracture that may be beyond the point of repair. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause appearance problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns, bridges, and/or veneers are suitable options in these cases. In teeth with root canals, crowns will also be used to prevent breakage and create a good seal to prevent bacterial leakage.
