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?

Our Metal-Free Cosmetic Crowns Create Confident Smiles

Preserve Your Tooth

A dental crown is a cap that covers the top 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 partner lab that exclusively uses high-quality 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 dental crown will also be specially matched to the natural shade of your smile and bite of your teeth so that it blends in for a natural-looking appearance and fit.

What types of issues can crowns solve?

Crowns Provide Both  Restorative and Cosmetic Effects

A traditional dental 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. Our Nashville doctors can also use dental crowns to replace 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 lifelike cosmetic enhancement. 

But is this type of restoration right for you?

Our Team Can Assess Your Candidacy for a Dental Crown

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. Your doctor can determine if you qualify and coordinate your treatment with a skilled surgeon.

Designing and Placing Your Restoration

The process of receiving a dental crown generally takes two office visits. During your first appointment, you will come in for an exam, and your dentist will clean out any decay present in the tooth, first numbing the area so that you are comfortable. He will also need to remove some enamel to make room for the restoration.

Placing a traditional dental crown requires the removal of a small amount of enamel to ensure a comfortable fit.

When the tooth is prepared, we will take impressions to guide the creation of the crown at an off-site lab. You will be provided with a temporary crown until your next appointment, roughly two weeks later, which will allow you to eat, chew, and talk normally in the meantime. During your second appointment, your doctor will replace your temporary crown with your permanent restoration and cement it in place. He will also check to make sure that your bite is comfortable and feels natural, making any necessary adjustments.

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, a high-quality restoration can not only improve the function and health of your tooth, but can also improve the appearance of your smile for many years to come.

Our Patient Results

Six dental crowns were placed over the front to teeth to create a whiter, more even smile.
