Why Choose Dr. Monica Boehmer for Dental Crowns?

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-made prosthetic that fits over your natural tooth. Also known as a cap, it is used to protect a severely decayed or damaged tooth from further reinfection. It also helps to keep the structure of the regular tooth intact.

Do I Need Dental Crowns?

If you have a weakened tooth caused by decay or serious damage, it’s imperative that you see Dr. Boehmer for dental crown placement.

Other reasons you might need a dental crown include:

The only way to tell if a crown is truly necessary, though, is to let Dr. Boehmer examine your smile and make a recommendation. From there, she will craft a personalized treatment plan that you can review and use to make your final decision.

The Dental Crown Process

A typical dental crown procedure takes two visits to our office. During the first visit, Dr. Boehmer will clean and remove any of the decayed areas of your tooth before filling and sealing it. She will then file away the tooth to allow for a proper fitting once the finalized crown is ready for placement. Before leaving, she will take impressions of your tooth and send it off to the dental lab where technicians will craft your custom prosthetic. You will receive a temporary crown to wear until the permanent one is ready.

During your second visit, Dr. Boehmer will remove the temporary crown and fix the permanent one into place.

It is also possible to inquire about getting a CEREC same-day dental crown, which can be crafted in-house thanks to our milling unit that can produce a new restoration while you wait. This cuts down on driving back and forth to our dental office as well as having to wear a temporary while waiting for your finalized crown to arrive.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown
