A dental crown is a “cap” that is fixed into place over a tooth that has lost its full use. It restores not only its appearance but its size, shape and strength too.
The crown fully encases the visible part of a tooth up to the gum line. It offers protection to a weak tooth; restores the appearance and use of a broken tooth and covers and supports a tooth which has a large filling, as well as concealing the appearance of distorted or discolored teeth.
If a dental implant has been inserted, a crown can be fixed on top of it. Dental crowns are tooth colored porcelain or metal fused with porcelain.
Our patients have been enjoying our same-day crowns that are made in house. Patients can save their teeth in literally one appointment! As an added bonus, while the dental crown is being milled, they can sit back and relax in our massage chairs.
Dental crowns can treat cracked teeth and prevent further damage.
As we’ve seen time and time again at our Mount Prospect dental office, getting a crown isn’t like what it used to be. Family and cosmetic dentists like myself have more options for missing teeth.
In the past, we would prepare the tooth and you’d be in a temporary crown for weeks, if not a month or longer, before you received the permanent crown. Now, you can get a crown in a day.

and live better
The main benefit of single-visit crowns are that they save you time, therefore enhancing your comfort and overall experience with us.
You spend less time in the dental chair because impressions aren’t needed. less adjustments are needed, no temporary crowns are needed, and ONE visit to the dentist makes it a huge time-saver.
An in office CEREC crown is scheduled for about 1 1/2 hours appointment, but the milling phase can be spent in the massage chair, doing work, watching tv and relaxing.
Every single patient deserves the best dental care. Part of that includes utilizing the latest dental technology, tools, and techniques. I’m committed to investing in these products to provide you with the very best treatment.
