Experiencing Dental Pain? Call us for an emergency appointment
If you're in pain or damaged a tooth, prompt treatment is needed to save the tooth, preserve your oral health, and eliminate your pain. Contact our Warsaw dental practice today so we can schedule you to see the dentist as soon as possible.
A Durable and Natural-Looking Solution
Teeth that have been damaged due to trauma or have undergone a root canal are completely covered with a dental crown to provide protection from further damage. We can also provide a temporary crown while your permanent restoration is being completed.
Modern crowns are built to last. In fact, by practicing proper hygiene and making regular visits to your dentist, you can expect your crown to last 10 years or more.
Today's crowns are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. You can expect your smile to look healthy and attractive after your dentist completes your crown procedure.

High-Quality Restorative Materials Ensure a Superior Dental Crown
Though dental crowns can be constructed using a number of materials, our use of porcelain crowns provides a superior cosmetic result. In addition to restoring full functionality, these crowns blend seamlessly into your smile. The placement of dental crowns can also be combined with additional cosmetic treatments, such as whitening, to enhance the final results.
While traditional metal crowns are distracting when placed on visible teeth, porcelain is designed to mimic the properties of natural tooth enamel. We precisely match the shade of porcelain to your existing tooth enamel for a natural-looking result. If you have an existing metal crown that you would like to replace, we are happy to update your smile with a custom porcelain alternative.
Offering excellent aesthetic results and incredible strength, IPS e.max crowns can be crafted to provide a lifelike dental restoration.
Natural-looking IPS Empress crowns scatter light and provide translucency in a way that is the closest match to natural teeth.
The most durable material, zirconia is considerably stronger than other options and can provide the longest lifespan for your new restoration.

Nervous about Dental Treatment? We Offer Sedation Dentistry
At our Warsaw, IN, dental practice, we offer different methods of sedation to ensure our patients are comfortable during treatment. Sedation dentistry is particularly beneficial for people with severe dental anxiety or those undergoing long procedures like dental implant placement.
We provide three different methods to induce a state of relaxation before beginning dental work:
Light sedation is so safe it can be used on children. Nitrous oxide works quickly and the effects fade away almost immediately, allowing patients to drive themselves home following treatment.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Administered as a pill, moderate sedation may cause feelings of drowsiness. Because oral conscious sedation lasts longer than most dental procedures, patients will need to arrange transportation.
IV sedation puts patients in a twilight state where they may drift off to sleep. The lasting effects of IV sedation mean that patients will need someone to drive them to and from their appointment.
What do the results look like?
Just Like Natural Teeth
Maintaining Your Dental Crown
Good Oral Hygiene
Brush your teeth twice daily, and floss at least once a day to prevent plaque build-up and infection. Floss carefully around your crown and use an oral irrigator (water flosser) to clean hard-to-reach places.
Avoid Excessive Force
Refrain from grinding your teeth, opening packages with your teeth, or eating foods that are excessively hard and sticky. Your dental crown can wear just like your natural teeth and can crack under severe pressure. We can discuss a protective oral appliance if you habitually clench and grind your teeth.
Attend Dental Check-Ups
Never underestimate the importance of your bi-annual check-ups at our dentist's office in Warsaw. These appointments let us provide a thorough cleaning and check for any problems with your restoration.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Crowns
Why not just pull a damaged or decayed tooth?
Pulling a damaged or decayed tooth may seem cheaper and easier, but it will cost you more in the long run. Even a single missing tooth can lead to oral health issues, such as shifting teeth, that may require more extensive dental work later on. By treating and preserving the tooth structure now, you can prevent problems down the road.
Does a dental crown hurt?
No. Your dentist will properly numb you before treatment. For patients that need an extra level of comfort care, sedation options are also available. There may be some mild discomfort once the anesthetic wears off, but it should be easily managed with over-the-counter medication. If it doesn't resolve within a few days, contact our practice so we can help address the issue.
How long will my dental crown last?
With proper care and maintenance, your dental crown can last for 10 to 15 years or longer. However, over time, the crown will wear and will eventually need to be replaced. If you have a worn or damaged dental crown, we can replace your old crown with a new one to preserve your tooth structure.
Can your dentist place an implant-supported dental crown?
Yes. Our skilled dentist can place dental implants and implant-supported restorations to replace missing teeth. Replacing a missing tooth as soon as possible can help prevent your remaining teeth from shifting. Dental implants can also prevent the jawbone atrophy that can occur from missing teeth.
Is there a difference between a cap and a crown?
No. A cap is simply another way to say crown. It is an antiquated term used for the same treatment.
