Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a custom-designed replica of your tooth that fits over your remaining tooth structure. It replaces your tooth, while also protecting your natural root. When your tooth suffers from a fracture, decay, infection, or injury that is greater than a dental filling can repair, our doctors might recommend a crown for you.

It typically takes two appointments to finish your crown. During your first appointment, we prepare your tooth for your permanent restoration and create a temporary crown for you to wear while your final crown is being fabricated at a dental laboratory. In 2 to 3 weeks, you’ll return to Appleton Dental Care to receive your permanent crown. Our doctors will place it and ensure that it fits properly and aligns correctly with your bite.

We’re committed to using the finest dental materials and working with the top dental laboratories in the area so you’ll receive a quality restoration you can rely on. We’ll also customize your new crown to complement your smile by matching your existing teeth so no one will notice your dental work.

If you have a tooth that needs repair, contact Appleton Dental Care today to learn more about your treatment options and schedule your next appointment.
