Crowns Q & A

Why would I need a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap fitted over your natural tooth to restore its shape and structure. Dr. Hernandez or Dr. Urrego-Torres may recommend a dental crown to:

  • Cover a dental implant
  • Protect and restore a chipped tooth
  • Hold a dental bridge more securely in place
  • Improve the appearance of a discolored or misshapen tooth

How do I care for a dental crown?

You can expect to treat your dental crowns much like you would your natural teeth. Keep them clean with regular, gentle brushing and flossing. How long your crowns last primarily depends on how well you take care of them.

Engage in your usual dental cleanings, preventive dental care, and checkups at Nukoa Family Dentistry, so the team can help to maintain your crowns and make sure everything is functioning and looking as it should.

Dental crowns can’t decay. However, decay can set in at the edge of the crown where the tooth and crown connect, so cleanings and dental visits are essential.

What are Cerec crowns?

Either Dr. Hernandez or Dr. Urrego-Torres can design, create, and fit Cerec crowns all in a single office visit. They use computer-aided design image technology to create a permanent crown restoration within a couple of hours.

At this point, your new crown is ready to be fitted, which is also a quick process where your Nukoa dentist will fit the crown firmly in place with a strong bonding material.

What are the benefits of Cerec crowns?

Cerec crowns allow for a faster process completed in the same day. You won’t have to wait weeks for a lab technician to create your crowns.

With Cerec crowns, everything is completed in-office, and because you’ll be there in person, any final adjustments can be performed with you as a reference.

The process of getting Cerec crowns is also more comfortable, and the technology provides a more precise match to your natural tooth color — with over 17 different shades.

Dr. Urrego-Torres and Dr. Hernandez fit Cerec crowns in-office at theirDuluth location. They’ll answer any questions you might have and ensure that you’re fully informed.
