Ceramic Crowns

It used to be time-consuming and messy to be fitted for a dental crown. Fortunately, there have been many innovations in dental technology that have streamlined the process. Renken Dentistry in Springfield is always on the cutting edge of technology and efficiency.

The traditional process for getting a dental crown, or dental cap, used to involve several appointments. Your dentist would put a temporary crown on your tooth while an outside lab made a permanent piece. Once the permanent crown was made, you would visit the dentist to have the crown fitted and placed. You might need to go back to the dentist for additional appointments to resolve fitting issues. Dental crowns are used for a variety of reasons, including on back teeth after a root canal or teeth that are:

  • Broken
  • Chipped
  • Worn
