Dental Crowns Improve Your Smile

Dr. Banda often uses a crown to restore the beauty and function of a severely damaged tooth. Also known as a cap, a crown completely covers the tooth and extends just below the gum line. The location and function of the tooth determines whether Dr. Banda will recommend an all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), or gold crown.

Placing a crown takes two visits. At the first appointment, Dr. Banda will prepare your tooth, take an impression to send to our 100% American dental laboratories, and then fit you with a temporary. You'll return to our office after your restoration is prepared so that Dr. Banda can cement the permanent crown in place. He'll make modifications, if required, to ensure a comfortable fit. We use several world-class dental laboratories. Each specializes in certain types of restorations, so your crown will be fabricated by the lab most suited for your particular needs. In any event, we guarantee that all of our restorations are made in the USA, and only the world's highest quality materials are used.
