Dental crowns are a highly durable and aesthetic dental restoration used to treat a range of dental concerns. The dental crown is designed to cover the entire tooth and can be color and shape matched to fit your natural smile. Stain and decay resistant, a custom dental crown is permanently attached to a prepared tooth or dental implant and can last for many years.
Crowns can be used to stabilize a tooth after a root canal or to repair damaged or decayed tooth. Dental crowns are commonly attached to dental implants to replace a missing tooth.
Dental crowns are used to:
Repair chipped, cracked or damaged teeth
Correct discolored teeth
Reshape a misshapen tooth
Reinforce a tooth post root canal
Strengthen anchor teeth for a dental bridge

I go to Dr. Ahrabi because he offers a lot of things I don't get at other dentists. Dr. Ahrabi seems to space his appointments a full hour apart, so I get around 45 minutes with him. He uses this…Valentina D.
Dental Crown What to Expect
Dental crowns are highly durable and function and look just like natural teeth. Dr. Ahrabi may recommend a dental crown to stabilize the integrity of the natural tooth, restoring health and aesthetics to your smile.
Through a comprehensive and thorough oral health exam, Dr. Ahrabi will help patients build a dental treatment plan that will provide optimal results.
The dental crown will be custom designed using digital imaging of your teeth and gums. A dental lab will fabricate your dental crown to Dr. Ahrabi’s precise measurements for a comfortable fit.
CEREC Crowns: About the Process
The same day dental crown process begins with digital dental impressions to be used in the design of your new custom restoration. Using high-resolution digital images, Dr. Ahrabi can plan and mill a dental crown to your exact specifications. The new dental crown will be permanently attached to your prepared tooth.
With CEREC, Dr. Ahrabi can provide patients same day dental crowns, inlays and onlays for prompt smile restoration, saving time and money.
Dr. Ahrabi uses NuCalm to help patients fall into a state of total relaxation during their dental crown procedure. Patients typically experience little to no discomfort during treatment. Some swelling and tenderness are typical after the dental crown is placed but should subside with a day or two.
A dental crown is designed to be a permanent dental restoration. With proper oral hygiene and regular dental health exams, a dental crown can last upwards of 20 years.
