Do you have broken, chipped, or missing teeth?
At Gulch Dental Studio, our dental crowns restore function and appearance. Used with dental implants, they can even replace lost teeth.
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
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
Natural-Looking Materials For Beautiful Results
Many people equate dental crowns with silver or other metals. Our practice uses metal-free materials such as IPS e.max®. IPS e.max is a ceramic material, much like porcelain, and provides more natural-looking results than silver or gold. Because it is metal-free, it is a great option for patients with metal sensitivities or allergies. IPS e.max is also durable and often more affordable than other materials.

Patient Testimonials Read Our 5-Star Reviews
The staff is amazing! The studio is clean, modern, and relaxing! Dr. Harris did a great job on the crown I needed to get done. I have terrible dental anxiety and Dr. Harris and his team made sure I was taken care of and relaxed! Highly recommend! I will continue to use them and recommend everyone I know! It’s hard to find a great dentist, I did and I will be back because I trust my smile in the hands of the Gulch Dental Studio team!
I had a wonderful experience! I relocated to Nashville and scheduled an appointment after reading so many positive reviews. The office and staff were amazing and welcoming, parking was easy, and it was the best dental cleaning I’ve ever had.
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. For patients without dental insurance or to help with costs not covered by insurance, we also offer CareCredit® to help finance the cost of your treatment. 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.

Maintaining Your Dental Crown
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.

So where do I start, I fly in from houston to visit nashville. Eat some hard food and find that my crown falls off. I tried to cement it back, a no go. Called 12 dentists, yes 12 .. all gave me the run around, not helpful. Just when I was about to give up, I call these fine people as a last ditch effort.. and wow!! Nice person answer phone, listens to me.. shows empathy and begins to tell me what they can do for me. Office managers please model yourself after this.. empathy + assurance it goes a long way. They fit me in on a short day (friday).. I walk in, they got to work quickly, with precision. I was in and out in 45 min. World class service, wish they were in my home town.
