A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that is placed over a tooth, encasing the entire visible part of the tooth. When a tooth needs its shape, size, strength or appearance restored, Dr. Matt Pierce or Dr. Jim Heck may recommend a porcelain dental crown in Greenwood, Indiana. There are many situations for which our dentists may suggest a dental crown. A crown will keep a weak tooth from breaking or hold a cracked tooth together. If a tooth is broken or badly worn down, a crown will restore it. If a tooth has a large dental filling and does not have much tooth structure left, a crown will cover and support the tooth. A dental crown can cover and conceal irregularly shaped or badly stained teeth, and it can anchor a dental bridge in place or cover a dental implant.

Our dentists will prepare your tooth for a crown by removing a small amount of tooth enamel. Digital impressions of the tooth and the surrounding teeth are taken so that a dental crown can be custom made. When your crown is ready, our dentists will permanently be cemented in place.
