Dental crowns can serve many cosmetic and restorative purposes to help promote long term dental health and oral function. Some of the most common uses for a dental crown may include:
- Stabilize a tooth after a root canal
- To complete a dental implant
- To support a dental bridge
- Add strength to a chipped, cracked, or fractured tooth
- To address a decayed tooth
- To change the shape, color, or overall appearance of a tooth

What Does Getting A Dental Crown Involve?
In many cases, receiving a dental crown requires 2-3 visits to our McLeansville dentist office. During the first appointment, Dr. Woodruff will carefully prepare the tooth that is to receive the dental crown. If necessary, a small amount of tooth structure is removed and the tooth is carefully cleaned before impressions are taken. The impressions are used to create a custom dental crown that fits securely and comfortably over the affected tooth. Under the care of an experienced cosmetic dentist, a custom dental crown should be indistinguishable from the neighboring teeth.
While your custom fabricated, we may place a temporary crown to keep your tooth protected. Once your custom crown is complete, we will remove the temporary crown and carefully cement it into place using a special adhesive. At the time of the final appointment, the crown is polished and any final adjustments are made.
