So glad I came here! I have always had fear of dentists and they made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Bailey and her staff are just amazing. They got me in quickly, and explained everything so I wouldn't be nervous. They did not pressure me into any treatments that weren't necessary. Will keep coming here!

How Can a Dental Crown Restore Your Smile?

Repair and Reinforce

Following treatment for physical trauma or decay, a dental crown is placed over the tooth for added protection and support. Prompt treatment with a dental crown can help you keep your smile whole and avoid the need for extraction. If a tooth does require extraction, our dentists can fill the gap in your smile with a crown supported by dental implants.

Provide Long-Term Durability

At Foothill Dental, our dentists offer three material options for dental crowns to meet the needs of patients of all ages. Whether a patient receives a porcelain same-day crown, IPS e.max ceramic crown, or all-metal crown, the materials we use are designed to withstand normal biting forces and can last a decade or longer with proper care and regular checkups.

Achieve Life-Like Results

The dental crowns we provide are not only incredibly durable, but our porcelain and ceramic crowns are crafted of materials that are engineered to mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel. When developing your individualized treatment plan, your new crown will be color-matched to the surrounding teeth in your smile to provide seamless results.

We love Foothill Dental! We’ve always received high level dental care from all the hygienists and dentists. Beyond that—they are the most friendly, caring, and fun office. The staff is amazing and works so hard to accommodate my 7 children I bring in. I can’t recommend them highly enough! They also are very organized and give very accurate quotes for dental work before it is done. They are the best!

Do You Offer Same-Day Crowns? Yes! We can craft a crown while you wait.

Our Salt Lake City dental office features the revolutionary in-office CEREC system. This allows patients to skip the multiple visits and temporary crown that is associated with a traditional dental crown.

While a same-day crown can be completed in a single visit, the length of your appointment will depend on the level of treatment required to prepare your tooth. You can generally expect these steps:

A tooth that is weakened due to physical trauma may not take as long as a tooth affected by extensive decay. If decay has reached the inner portion of your tooth, you may require a root canal. Our dentists can perform a virtually pain-free root canal to save your tooth, but it will add some time to your office stay.

Once your tooth has been treated and prepared, your dentist will use an intraoral camera to take detailed 3D images of your teeth. This data is then transferred to the CEREC software, where a crown will be designed to perfectly fit in your smile. The digital template is then sent to our in-office milling machine which will fabricate your new crown out of a porcelain block that has been matched to your natural enamel. Depending on the type of tooth being replaced, fabrication takes four to twenty minutes.

When the crown is completed, your dentist will test its fit and make any final adjustments to ensure it fits comfortably and blends in with your adjacent teeth.

Once both you and your dentist are happy with the fit and appearance of your new crown, it will be permanently bonded in place with dental cement. You will walk out of our office with a fully restored smile, ready to get on with your busy schedule.

Traditional Dental Crown Timeline

IPS e.max crowns are a great option for someone who is interested in a dental implant-supported crown. They are also perfect for patients who prefer a hand-finished restoration for the most natural-looking results. Traditional dental crown placement at our Salt Lake City office includes:
"It takes about two weeks for our dental lab to hand-finish a traditional custom crown."
"It takes about two weeks for our dental lab to hand-finish a traditional custom crown."

Treatment

Similar to a same-day crown, your dentist will first remove the damaged or decayed tissue. If the inner portion of your tooth is infected, we can perform a root canal to elevate any painful symptoms.

Tooth Preparation

Following treatment, your tooth will be reshaped and resized to support your new dental crown.

Digital Impressions

We use digital impressions which provide an incredibly detailed 3D image for our dental lab to use as a template for your new crown. It also allows you to skip the mess of traditional impression material. Once completed, our dentist will place a temporary crown.

Fabrication

Over the next two weeks, our dental lab will craft your new crown out of state-of-the-art IPS e.max ceramic material. Your new crown will be hand-finished for the most life-like results.

Crown Placement

Once your permanent crown is ready, you will return to our office. Your dentist will remove your temporary crown and place your new dental restoration. Any final adjustments for fit and appearance will be made before permanently attaching it with dental cement.

Restored Smile

Once your final restoration is placed, you can enjoy your new smile with no downtime. You may experience mild sensitivity, but these symptoms should subside after a couple of days.
