What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a type of restoration that shrouds the tooth in protective material, restoring its shape and functionality. There are several materials available. We prefer to use high-strength porcelain, which replicates the appearance of tooth enamel for a beautifully natural result. For crowns that require extra strength, we may use a base of noncorrosive (noble) metal such as gold, with a layer of beautiful porcelain fused to it.

Crowns may be used to:

  • Repair damaged, badly decayed, or cracked teeth
  • Protect fragile or weak teeth
  • Restore teeth after root canal therapy
  • Whiten, reshape, and restore teeth

The dental impression goes digital with TRIOS scanner

Traditional dental impressions begin with a goopy substance in a tray, which goes in your mouth to create a mold. It is uncomfortable for the patient, time consuming for the dentist, and the result may be imprecise. Our TRIOS scanner replaces traditional dental impressions with fast, convenient, detailed, three-dimensional digital images.

The benefits include:

  • The digital “impression” can be emailed to the dental laboratory immediately, so they can begin working on your permanent restoration right away.
  • Scanning your teeth is fast and comfortable. There is no uncomfortable tray, no goopy foul-tasting paste in your mouth, and no worries about a mess on your skin or facial hair.
  • Digital imagery is more detailed and precise, resulting in a better fitting restoration.
  • The process is gentle and not intimidating for nervous kids.
  • Shorten the time you will have to contend with a temporary crown. TRIOS helps you get your permanent crown quickly, so you can get on with your life.
  • Show off a spectacular smile. Our technology can match the coloring of your tooth enamel with precision, and TRIOS helps create the ideal shape, so the result looks natural.
