Dental Crowns

A dental crown (often called a “cap”) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings. Although there are several types of dental crowns, porcelain (a tooth colored crown) is the most popular because it most resembles natural teeth and is highly durable over time.  DCOF is proud to offer the latest technology to produce the best fitting, looking crowns for our patients. Our E4D machine allows us to take a picture of your tooth digitally, access the enhanced image immediately, and create a beautiful porcelain crown for you ALL IN A DAY! We are excited to be able to offer this service to our patients as it saves them a tremendous amount of time and money. No external lab fees, no waiting several weeks wearing a temporary crown, and the beautiful smile you deserve all in a day!

What exactly is the E4D technology?

The E4D system is a state-of-the-art digital scanner, a design center, and a milling unit capable of fabricating beautiful strong porcelain restorations very quickly. This system provides us with the capability of producing porcelain crowns, veneers, or inlays/onlays using the latest technology and clinically proven materials ALL IN A DAY. This eliminates the need to wear a temporary for weeks and come back for another appointment. It saves our patients both time and money.

Why DCOF?

At other dental offices, producing and placing crowns usually requires two appointments. During the first one, the dentist prepares the tooth, takes an impression, and places a temporary crown. The temporary is usually on for 2-3 weeks. During that time lots of things can happen: the tooth may become sensitive or start hurting, it can break, or the temporary may come off. The E4D system eliminates the waiting period for a final restoration. This allows DCOF to save you from possible discomfort and the time of having to come back. We are thrilled to be able to offer this to our patients at DCOF. 

Why is a crown needed?

  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • To restore an already broken tooth
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling
  • To support a dental bridge
  • To cover misshapen or discolored teeth
  • To cover a dental implant

Crowns may sometimes be used on primary (baby) teeth to:

  • Save a tooth that has been damaged by decay and can’t support a filling
  • Protect the teeth of a child at high risk for decay
  • Decrease the need for extended dental treatment for children who are unable to maintain proper dental health because of age, behavior or medical reasons.
