Dental Crowns Offer Superior Support and Advanced Aesthetics 

Patients who have missing or badly damaged teeth can restore strength and aesthetics to their smiles with dental crowns. Not only will your new restoration function as a natural tooth, but it will also blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. Dr. David Casagrande uses computer-aided design and manufacturing technology at his Billings, MT, and Boise, ID, offices to fabricate crowns that are both functional and highly aesthetic. With proper care and oral hygiene, dental crowns can last almost a decade or more before they require replacement.

"Hard to tell if it's a tooth or a crown."

At River Valley Advanced Dental & Implant Center, our goal is to provide natural-looking, durable dental crowns that are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Depending on your needs, prosthodontist David Casagrande can help you choose from gold crowns, zirconia crowns, or e.max crowns. With proper care, patients at our Billings, MT, and Boise, ID, dental offices enjoy their crowns for up to a decade or more.

What is a Dental Crown? 

A crown—also commonly known as a cap—is a dental restoration that covers the entire tooth. In addition to the cosmetic benefits that they offer, dental crowns can also help restore a weakened tooth. Depending on your budget and your oral health needs, we can create a dental crown out of metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or all-porcelain materials. Traditional crowns are used to strengthen damaged teeth, whereas an implant-supported crown can replace a missing tooth.  Dental implants, which are made of small titanium root forms are placed in the jaw to provide your tooth and jawbone with functional benefits and help you maintain healthy bone structure. In addition to their superior aesthetics, dental crowns can be extremely durable.

Are Dental Crowns Right For You?

Dental crowns can be used to address a number or oral health issues, including: 

  • Weakened teeth 
  • Severely decayed teeth
  • Misalignment in your bite 
  • Worn teeth due to grinding
  • Restoration after root canal therapy 
  • Missing teeth 

In order to ensure the success and longevity of your dental crowns, you should also have good periodontal health prior to receiving your restorations. Patients with periodontal disease or cavities should have these issues treated, prior to receiving their crown. 

Same-Day Crowns

Computer-aided design and manufacturing, or CAD/CAM, allows us to fabricate a lifelike, highly aesthetic restoration in our office without sending your impressions to an offsite lab. We will begin by taking digital impressions of your smile and creating 3-D reconstructions of your mouth on our software. This allows us to design your new dental crowns digitally, which is more precise than traditional methods. For the right candidate, this equipment also allows us to create same-day crowns. 

To ensure that your new crown complements the form and function of your smile, Dr. Casagrande will conservatively reshape your existing tooth structure before placing your permanent restoration. 

Placing Your Crowns 

During your initial consultation, we will assess your oral health and discuss your restorative options with you. If you decide that dental crowns are the best way to effectively treat your concerns, we will prepare your natural tooth by removing small amounts of enamel. Once your tooth is prepared, we will take impressions to create a crown that fits securely and blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile. 

Your crowns will be secured in place by a strong adhesive. The margins will blend against your gum line for the most natural-looking fit. Once your new crown is in place, Dr. Casagrande will make some final precise adjustments to ensure that the bite and contours are idea. There is generally no downtime involved in receiving a dental crown, and you can immediately return to your normal activities.
