One of the most versatile ways that you can repair or improve your smile is with a dental crown. You might be surprised at the number of ways our dentists, Dr. Alejandro Martinez and Dr. Sarah McMahan can use a dental crown to help your appearance and your oral health. For example, a crown can protect your tooth after you have root canal and can be used to hold a dental bridge in place. Crowns are useful for covering a dental implant, improve the shape or the color of a damaged or discolored tooth, or cover a tooth that has a  very large filling, is weak or cracked.

Our team will create a crown designed to fit your smile, and it will protect your tooth all the way down to the gum line. Most crowns are made from porcelain or porcelain that is fused to metal and porcelain crowns can be made to blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile. Gold dental crowns are also popular.

Traditionally, crowns have taken at least two appointments to complete. Our dentists and team use state-of-the-art CEREC technology to complete your crowns in a single visit! Using this advanced device, we can design, create and place your crown in a matter of minutes, allowing you to leave our office with a restored smile after just one appointment.
