Dental Crowns Q & A

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are hollow ceramic or porcelain tooth-colored caps that “crown” existing teeth or attach to dental implants. Dental crowns restore the function and beauty of smiles due to problems like:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Teeth damaged by tooth decay or trauma
  • Discolored or misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are vulnerable to breaking
  • Teeth that are compromised by large fillings

In addition, Advanced Smile Dentistry typically places crowns over teeth after root canals to add protection.

What are dental crowns made out of?

Advanced Smile Dentistry offers crowns made from a few materials, each which offers advantages. These materials include:


All-metal crowns offer strength and resilience and resist wear from aggressive chewing and biting. However, all-metal crowns stand out, so the practice generally only uses them on back molars.


All-ceramic crowns are known for their beauty. Your Advanced Smile Dentistry provider can match them to the color of your existing teeth, so that they look natural. All-ceramic crowns are a popular choice for the front teeth, where the force of your bite isn’t as aggressive.

Ceramic on metal

Ceramic on metal crowns contain a metal inner shell surrounded by a ceramic outer shell. They offer the best of both worlds — they’re durable like metal crowns and natural-looking like ceramic crowns.

What happens during a crown placement?

Advanced Smile Dentistry offers same-day crown placement. When you come in for your crown placement, the practice begins by removing a minimal amount of your tooth enamel. Your team does this to ensure your crown won’t cause your surrounding teeth to shift or look unnaturally large.

Instead of taking a mold, the practice next maps your mouth using the 3Shape Trios® intraoral digital scanners. The scanner creates a precise, 3-D model of your mouth with which the practice can fabricate perfect crowns the same day.

After your Advanced Smile Dentistry team fabricates your crowns, they bond them to your teeth. With the 3Shape Trios®, you don’t have to wear temporary crowns, and you get to enjoy a quick and comfortable experience.
