The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Protect Your Teeth

Cavities and infections don't only cause pain. They also weaken the structures of teeth. Dental crowns are caps that cover compromised teeth, strengthening them and protecting them from further damage.

Save Money

Avoid More Costly Dentistry 

If you don't cover a compromised tooth with a crown, it may eventually require extraction and replacement with a dental implant, which can cost thousands more than a simple crown. Choosing the more affordable option now can result in significant savings.

Enhance Your Smile

Custom-designed dental crowns from our dentists in Belmont can upgrade the appearance of your smile. These prosthetics can disguise discoloration, structural damage, and poorly shaped teeth. 

Dental Crown Treatment A Simple and Effective Form of Restorative Dentistry

Dental crowns are a tried and true method of repairing a wide range of dental conditions. With proper care and maintenance, they can protect your teeth for over a decade. Our Belmont practice crafts high-quality, lifelike restorations that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Tooth Preparation

After numbing your mouth, one of our dentists will prepare the compromised tooth by cleaning and removing any decay. Root canal therapy may be required to extract infected tissue. Once the tooth is free of decay, we will remove a small layer of enamel to make room for the cap.


Our dentist will take impressions of the treated tooth. We will send then these impressions to our trusted dental lab, where they will craft your prosthetic out of the material of your choice. We will discuss with you the benefits of the different materials (including porcelain, resin, and metals) so you can make an informed decision. 

Temporary Crown

We will place a temporary crown to protect against further damage while your permanent crown is being made. Be careful not to eat any excessively hard or sticky foods while your temporary cap is in place.

Crafting Custom Restorations

The skilled technicians at our partner lab will need one to two weeks to custom-craft your permanent crown. Once the restoration is complete, it is sent back to our Belmont office for placement.

Permanent Crown

When your cap is ready, you will return to our office for a second appointment. Our dentist will check the look and fit of the restoration and make any necessary adjustments. Then, we will use a special dental cement to secure the crown over your tooth.
