A dental crown or “cap” is an important tool our dentists use to keep your teeth healthy. Your doctors at Detail Dental can fit one of these tooth-shaped caps over your teeth for a variety of reasons: to help hold a cracked tooth together, to strengthen a tooth that has had a large cavity or root canal, to restore the look of a discolored or misshapen tooth, or to place on top of an implant.
Why might you need a crown?
- Root canal treatment
What does a Crown mean for you?

Same-Day Crowns: Fast, Easy, Beautiful
There are several types of crowns with porcelain or tooth colored crowns being the most popular and ideal choice. Porcelain crowns are very durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations may eventually require replacement. Dental crowns made of these materials are easily matched to the color of your existing teeth and provide a natural-looking tooth that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your mouth. Your DETAIL DENTAL team custom crafts each porcelain crown to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth, giving you a natural looking and beautiful smile. Today’s tooth colored crowns are just as strong and durable as the traditional gold crowns and at DETAIL DENTAL, we can make them here in the office-preventing the need for 2 appointments and those bothersome temporaries.
In some instances your dentist at Detail Dental may decide the best course of action is an all-ceramic Inlay or Onlay.
With DETAIL DENTAL’s new Cerec CAD/CAM digital technology, we are often able to save more of your healthy tooth structure by chemically bonding Ceramic Onlays instead of using traditional crowns. This helps preserve as much tooth structure as possible leaving you with a beautiful restoration designed to stand the test of time. Onlays also perfectly match the shade of your other teeth and we can make them here in the office while you wait.
