Dental Crowns at a Value You Expect
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance.
Your Affordable Dentures & Implants dentist will complete an evaluation to determine if a crown is the right solution to:
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
- Restore an already broken tooth or a tooth with severe wear
- Cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there is not a lot of your tooth left
- Cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth
- Cover a dental implant
- Anchor a dental bridge
If you’re a good candidate, your dentist will take an impression, prepare your tooth for the crown, and create a temporary crown that will be worn while your permanent crown is made in a dental laboratory. The permanent crown is usually available in two to three weeks.
At the second visit, the dentist will remove the temporary crown, check the fit and color of the permanent crown and cement it into place.

Affordable Dentures & Implants practices use CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology that houses a camera, computer and milling machine in one instrument. Digital imaging captures a picture of your damaged tooth and eliminates the need for uncomfortable alginate impressions.
The optical “impression” is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where the dentist uses 3D technology to design your new crown. Then, CAM takes over and creates the crown while you wait. The dentist bonds the crown to the surface of the old tooth, and you’re ready to go. The whole process takes about one hour.
There are more than 20 years of clinical research and in-practice experience behind this technology. We are pleased to offer this high-tech solution at more affordable prices in the following practices:
