A dental crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. A tooth that has dental examinations had root canal treatment almost always will have a crown placed for strength and durability. We have the most up to date technology for precisely constructing a crown that perfectly fits your tooth and bite in only one appointment. Instead of having to make several appointments and deal with a temporary crown and messy impressions, Dr. Thuernagle will take a 3D image then design a custom fit crown in less than a couple of hours. That way you don’t have to worry about taking more time out of your busy day to come back to the dentist for your permanent crown. It’s all done the same day.
