Dental Crowns

At Stubbs Family Dentistry, our team offers custom restorations to address serious concerns, such as advanced tooth decay or even a cracked or chipped tooth. With a dental crown, we can repair wear-and-tear and correct concerns that could threaten smile stability. Each one we provide is custom-made for a lifelike appearance, and crafted with materials made in the USA in local dental labs we know and trust!

When You Need a Crown

A dental crown is a restoration that covers the entire visible portion of your tooth: all of the structure above the gum line. Our team could also offer partial ones, known as inlays and onlays, for cases too severe for a filling, but not severe enough to require a complete restoration.

We could prescribe a crown if you have advanced tooth decay or an infection, or if you have a cracked, chipped, or broken tooth. Placement could also help restore proper balance to your bite and improved chewing function for kids and adults alike. Dental crowns also aid in tooth replacement, securing bridges in place or as a part of implant restorations.

How We Create and Place Them

There is no one-size-fits-all approach, as every smile is unique and requires customized treatment. With that in mind, we will design them based on detailed digital images and measurements we take of your tooth. In a local dental lab, durable and lifelike materials like ceramic can be used to create the full restoration. We also create metal, zirconia, and porcelain-fused-to-metal for more durable crowns, such as the ones we place on the side and rear teeth. When the crown is ready, we will connect it to your prepared tooth. You now have a restoration that is bright and beautiful, and able to last for years to come!
