Dental Crown Charleston SC

Dental CrownsAn Overview

West Ashley Family Dentistry is home to two highly trained and experienced dentists, Dr. James Dickert and Dr. Agatha Lynn. We offer high quality dental crowns that are custom made to enhance both function and aesthetics. Dental crowns can be used to address both cosmetic and restorative dental concerns with lasting results that will preserve the integrity of your natural smile.

Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, and we will recommend the most appropriate choice for you depending on the location of the affected tooth and your cosmetic goals. In most cases, a color matched porcelain or ceramic crown is suggested for both durability and a natural appearance.

Common dental crown treatments include:

  • Damaged tooth
  • Decayed tooth
  • Misshapen tooth
  • Discolored tooth
  • Fix gaps between teeth
  • Strengthen a tooth after a root canal or to support a dental bridge

Same Day Crowns in Charleston

same day dental crowns in charleston scFor many patients, the need for a new dental crown is due to tooth damage, decay or the loss of a previous crown. When placing a traditional crown restoration, two separate visits were required before you could walk out with your permanent crown and a functional smile.

Dr. Dickert and Dr. Lynn use advanced CAD/CAM technology to offer the best possible result without the wait. Using E4D, we can design, create and place a high quality ceramic crown during one visit and send you on your way with a functional, comfortable smile.

Digital technology, something we embrace at West Ashley Family Dentistry, enables us to provide the best possible patient experience with more accurate treatment planning, comfortable procedures and lasting results.

Dental Crowns What to Expect

The dental crown process will depend on whether your crown is being fabricated in a dental lab or completed in our Charleston dentist office with CAD/CAM technology.

The dental crown process will begin with dental impressions to be used in the fabrication of your custom crown for either a dental lab or our in office milling machine. We use digital impressions, which means no more messy, gooey trays and a more comfortable experience.

First, we will prepare the tooth to be treated by removing a minimal amount of structure to allow the crown to be securely attached and fit comfortably. If your crown is to be made in a dental lab, a temporary crown may be placed to allow normal function until your final restoration is ready.

Once complete, your new dental crown will be permanently secured to your tooth, adjusted for fit and then polished to blend with your natural teeth. You can expect your new crown to last for many years with proper dental care and oral hygiene.
