Dental Crowns

The team at Champagne Family Dentistry utilizes state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology crown milling technology to make a patient’s visit as comfortable as possible. This allows our team of specially trained dental professionals to fabricate dental crowns during a single office visit, eliminating the need for messy impression material, temporary crowns, and multiple follow up visits.

While small fillings are a great way to preserve teeth, they only serve to replace tooth structure that has been lost during the decay process rather than actually strengthening teeth. Due to their natural vertical and lateral movement, teeth with large fillings sometimes crack, ultimately leading to fracturing. Cracks and fractures are sometimes found during routine family dental examinations, after patients experience pain upon biting. Once a tooth has been fractured, the recommended course of treatment is a dental crown, often referred to as a “cap.”

Dental crowns work to strengthen the tooth and prevent splitting after cracks or fractures have materialized. While tooth fractures often lead to dental crowns, results may vary based on the type, size, and location of the fracture. When the cusp of the tooth breaks above the gum line, a dental crown is usually necessary. However, if the fracture is deeper, more extensive procedures, including root canals, periodontal surgery or extraction may be necessary.
