What are dental crowns?

A crown covers the tooth like a cap to restore it back to its natural size and function. It will both improve the appearance of the tooth and strengthen it.


Here are some of the benefits of dental crowns:

  • Replace missing teeth
  • A natural appearance
  • Custom-created
  • Long-lasting
  • Fix chewing problems
  • Improve your smile
  • Can strengthen the teeth

How long does it take to fit?

In the past, fittings used to take two appointments. CEREC Single Visit Crowns allow you to walk in and out of your appointment with your new dental crown the same day. Call our dentist office to talk about these convenient dental crowns in Hickory, North Carolina.

The Process

First, your dentist will prepare the tooth by removing the decay and cracks. Next, they will shape the tooth to get it ready for placement. They will then take digital scans of your prepared tooth to create the dental crown. Once it is ready, they will place it over the tooth. It is an easy, noninvasive dental procedure.

Maintenance and Care

After your crown has been placed, avoid chewing sticky/hard foods or substances like gum and candy. Be careful when flossing around that tooth initially after the crown was placed. Also, be sure to schedule your regular dental cleaning appointment and keep up your at-home care by brushing at least twice daily and flossing at least once.
