Denver Dental Crowns

Contact Midtown Dental today to learn more about our dental services.

Dental crowns offer added support for damaged teeth. When a tooth becomes weakened, a crown provides extra strength to extend the life of the tooth and maintain a healthy appearance. 

At Midtown Dental, we offer permanent crowns in a variety of durable materials. 

The Crown Procedure

A damaged tooth can cause a great deal of pain and can also take on a discolored appearance. Dental crowns can help reduce pain and enhance your smile.

During a crown appointment, a dentist makes a mold of the damaged tooth. A dental technician creates a crown that is as close to an exact duplicate of the compromised tooth as possible.

A dentist drills away the damaged area of the tooth to make room for the crown. The crown fits over the tooth and protects the root. A finished crown fits in seamlessly with the remaining teeth.

It can take one or two visits to apply a crown. It is not uncommon for a dentist to prepare the tooth and take impressions during the first appointment and apply the crown during the second. If the crown requires two visits, the dentist will apply a temporary crown to avoid damaging the tooth between appointments.

Reasons a Tooth May Require a Crown

There are several reasons to choose a crown to restore a tooth. Any time a tooth sustains trauma, whether through injury or extensive dental treatment, the tooth becomes weakened. Eventually, a tooth may need a crown to maintain its integrity and avoid extraction.

  • Crowns are useful in the following scenarios:
  • After a root canal procedure, the remaining tooth is fragile. A crown can restore the tooth and protect the root.
  • If the tooth has a sizeable filling, the thin walls of the tooth may not hold the filling material. 
  • A crown can restore a cracked or chipped tooth to avoid further breakage.
  • The teeth anchoring a dental bridge may require dental crowns to maintain strength.

If a tooth is significantly worn down or discolored, a crown can help restore an appearance consistent with the surrounding teeth.

Types of Crowns

Porcelain crowns look almost identical to tooth enamel. A dentist can match a porcelain crown to the color of the surrounding teeth for a natural look. Porcelain crowns do not require any special care aside from a typical dental routine.

Metal crowns are very strong, but because they are made of gold or other metals, they are not always a desired choice. For children, stainless steel is the typical option.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns have a metal core and a porcelain coating. PFM crowns offer the durability of metal combined with aesthetically pleasing porcelain. Over time, the porcelain coating may wear away, exposing the metal core.

This dentist is so good that I choose to go here despite being out of my insurance network. I had previously gone to another dentist in Cherry creek who kept performing expensive treatments that didn’t help. After my first visit at midtown dental, they resolved my issue. Their staff is incredibly kind, patient, and transparent.

We've been going to Midtown Dental for close to 10 years. Dr. T and his team are our favorites! Having two young girls who were not particularly excited about going to the dentist, they were made to feel incredibly comfortable and now actually look forward to going to the dentist!!! Thanks Midtown Dental!

I have been going to Midtown Dental for about 8 years. I always love the dental hygienists. My mom was a hygienist so I have been spoiled my whole life with a great hygienist (totally bias). I love the hygienists at Midtown. I had a great cleaning today. They use the ultrasonic water to get the plaque off which is super comfortable. They are thorough. This is a down-to-earth place which is super friendly and professional staff. Covid Protocols are in place, which made me feel comfortable. Insurance was billed and my whole experience was smooth.

The hygienists are always gentle and ensure you feel comfortable throughout the cleanings. Dr. T is absolutely fantastic. He is thorough, does a great job making himself available or any questions, and he has a great sense of humor. I cannot recommend this dental office highly enough.
