Dental Crowns

Do you have broken, chipped, or missing teeth?

At Gulch Dental Studio, our dental crowns restore function and appearance, or replace lost teeth in conjunction with dental implants.

So what makes a dental crown a good treatment option for many patients at our Nashville, TN, dental office?

The Benefits of Our Metal-Free Cosmetic Crowns

When you choose to receive a dental crown at Gulch Dental Studio, you can...

Preserve Your Tooth

A dental crown is a cap that covers the visible portion of a tooth, reinforcing and preserving its structure. This means we can restore a damaged tooth to normal function so that you can eat and chew comfortably again.

Create Lasting Benefits

At Gulch Dental Studio in Nashville, TN, we work with a dental lab that exclusively uses high-quality, porcelain-like materials, such as IPS e.max® and IPS Empress®. With proper care, a dental crown can last up to 10 years before it requires replacement.

Enjoy Natural-Looking Results

Your custom crown will also be specially matched to the natural shade of your smile so that it blends in for a natural-looking appearance and fit.

Same-Day Crowns with Advanced CEREC Technology

At Gulch Dental Studio, we offer both traditional and same-day crowns. If your doctor determines you qualify for this type of crown, we can use our in-office milling machine to craft the restoration while you wait. The entire system offers a range of benefits:

  • No temporary crown
  • No need for a second visit
  • Digital impressions
  • Precise customization

Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry Dual Functions of Crowns

A traditional crown is a good restorative option for people whose teeth are too damaged by decay or injury for a simple filling, but do not require an extraction. One of the most common restorative uses of crowns is to protect a tooth after root canal treatment. Our Nashville dentists can also use dental crowns to restore missing teeth by attaching the porcelain restoration to a dental bridge or implant.

Although crowns are usually used for restorative purposes, they can also be placed on stained, worn, or small teeth for a natural-looking cosmetic enhancement. Our dentists are renowned for their skill in cosmetic dentistry, and they enjoy the artistry involved in crafting symmetrical, healthy-looking smiles. Crowns are just one of the tools they use to create cosmetic enhancements, in addition to porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and more.

Insurance May Cover Your Treatment

Dental insurance often helps pay for the cost of treatment if you are getting a dental crown for health purposes. Our Nashville practice accepts a wide range of insurance plans and will work directly with your provider to get you the most coverage. You can learn more about our financing and insurance policies on our website.

But do you qualify for this type of restoration?

Dental Crown Candidacy Considerations

Sufficient Tooth Structure

In order for a traditional crown to successfully restore your smile, there must be at least one-third of the affected tooth intact. Your doctor will need to gently reshape the tooth before placing the dental restoration.

Special Requirements for Implants

If you have a single missing tooth, an implant-supported crown can restore the appearance and function of your smile. However, dental implants have a unique set of requirements. Our dentists can determine if you qualify for implant dentistry and coordinate your treatment with a skilled oral surgeon.

Implant-Supported Crowns or Bridges? Which Option Is Right For Me

If you are missing a tooth, our Nashville practice offers a couple of different options to restore your smile. The first option is a traditional dental bridge. A bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth sandwiched between two traditional dental crowns. The crowns are placed over the natural teeth adjacent to the gap to hold the prosthetic in place.

The second option is replacing the tooth with an implant-supported crown. Unlike a dental bridge, an implant replaces the missing tooth root and protects against serious oral health problems. The dental implant supports a custom crown with maximum stability so the replacement looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth.


If you are wondering which solution is right for you, schedule a consultation at our Nashville practice today.

How Are Dental Crowns Placed? A Treatment Timeline

The process of receiving a dental crown generally takes two office visits. Most patients can expect a treatment timeline that goes something like this...

We offer sedation to keep you calm and comfortable throughout your visit.

Tooth Preparation

During your first appointment, you will come in for an exam. Your dentist will remove any decay present in the tooth, first numbing the area so that you are comfortable. If your tooth is infected, we may perform a root canal. After the bacteria and decay are taken care of, we will remove a layer of enamel to make room for the restoration.

Impressions

When the tooth is prepared, we will take impressions to guide the creation of the crown at an off-site lab.

Temporary Crown

You will be provided with a temporary crown until your next appointment, roughly two weeks later. The temporary crown near-perfectly resembles a tooth and will allow you to eat, chew, and talk normally in the meantime.

Crown Placement

During the second appointment, your doctor will replace your temporary crown with your permanent crown and cement it in place. He will also check to make sure that your bite is comfortable and feels natural, making any necessary adjustments.

Long-Term Results

Before you leave, you will also receive detailed instructions on how to care for your dental crown. With good oral hygiene and twice-yearly cleanings and exams, our high-quality restorations can improve both the function and health of your tooth and the appearance of your smile for many years to come.

Before and after dental crowns

Maintaining Your Dental Crown 

Taking care of your dental crown is fairly easy. For the most part, you should treat your restoration like you would your natural tooth. However, to ensure your crown lasts for as long as possible, we recommend following these simple instructions:

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

The best way to maintain your crown and your natural teeth is to practice good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day.

Be Careful What You Chew

While our ceramic and IPS e.max crowns are highly durable, they can still crack under pressure. Refrain from biting down on anything extremely hard or sticky like ice cubes or toffee to prevent unwanted damage. 

Visit the Dentist

You should attend a check-up twice a year at our Nashville practice to have your teeth professionally examined and cleaned. At this time your dentist will inspect your dental crown and make sure it is in good shape.
