Dental crowns are an essential part of dentistry because they serve many purposes. Likewise, there are various reasons you might require or want a dental crown in Eagan, MN.

If you have an oral health issue that requires a dental crown, your dentist will explain why and talk to you about the options. Reasons you might need or want a crown include:

  • Following root canal treatment
  • Restoring strength to a weakened tooth
  • Hiding tooth flaws
  • Topping a dental implant post
  • Connecting a bridge tooth to natural teeth

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are tooth covers that enclose or cap a treated tooth to hide flaws and provide stability. And they are always custom crafted to match adjacent teeth in shape and color. No one will guess that you have a dental crown when you speak. They’ll see only a beautiful smile.

Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be gold, metal fused to porcelain, zirconia, or other. But in our dental office, we’re proud to offer all-porcelain same-day dental crowns. Same-day crowns mean we can fabricate your restoration while you wait. So you’ll not have to drive back to the dental office after an outside lab has finished your crown.

Dental Crowns: Procedure and Care

The procedure is also simpler and faster with same-day crowns. Our CEREC technology can take digital impressions and forgo the goopy materials. We send the digital results to our onsite software, where your crown is designed. Then it is printed right here in our dental office. Your dentist makes any needed modifications, and then we cement the crown over your treated tooth.

Dental crown care is simple because there are no added steps.

  • Brush
  • Floss
  • Visit the dentist
