Protective Dental Crowns in Marion, Iowa

Sometimes, large cavities need more protection than what a filling can offer. Other times, traumatic injuries or teeth clenching can cause severe cracks and chipped enamel. Dental crowns offer the highest level of protection for teeth that require an added level of protection.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are lab-made restorations that protect the entire tooth structure above the gum tissues. Crowns offer additional support to withstand the pressure of biting and chewing when teeth are prone to additional breakage.

Dr. Matthew Sieverding & Dr. Connie Miller recommend crowns when there is little tooth structure left to repair, and a filling is inadequate. We also suggest placing crowns over teeth that have been treated with a root canal.

Cosmetic and Functional Benefits

Full-coverage dental crowns can be used to cover a tooth and change its appearance or restore its function. Our crowns are handcrafted for a healthy, natural-looking appearance. Not only do they protect and reinforce teeth, but they can be placed on top of dental implants for tooth replacement purposes.

Dr. Matthew Sieverding & Dr. Connie Miller will take steps to ensure your crown matches the color, shape, size, and alignment of your neighboring. This approach helps the crown blend in so that it isn’t noticeable to other people.

What to Expect

A typical dental crown treatment requires two separate visits. First, we numb and prep your tooth, then send an impression to our lab. We’ll fit you with a temporary crown in the meantime to prevent sensitivity. About two weeks later, your ceramic or porcelain crown will be ready to bond in place.
