Over time our teeth begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks, discoloration and others. If you feel your smile isn’t what it once was, crowns can help you recover your smile. If your dentist notices that a tooth is decayed or seems weakened/cracked a crown may be necessary to make sure that there are no additional problems with the tooth. In cases like this a filling or bonding will not be sufficient.

Crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a full gold crown. To maintain a natural look and feel a porcelain finished crown is best, as it can be matched to the shade of your other teeth. This will allow it to blend in and appear just like one of your natural teeth.

The process of installing a crown normally takes 2-3 visits to the dentist. However, at Darnell Dentistry, we have utilized the latest in crown design technology that allows us to produce same-day-crowns with the convenience of our in-office CEREC machine. Our advanced software paired with Dr. Darnell's precise design technique allows most crowns to be designed, milled and placed in the same day. For more information on this process, please visit the CEREC page located under the 'Our Technology' tab.
