Dental Crown

A tooth that is compromised due to decay or trauma can cause serious pain and have a significant impact on your oral health.

Placing a dental crown over a treated tooth can restore form and function to your smile, allowing you to chew and speak properly.

The Center for Dentistry in Aiken, SC, can create same-day crowns and repair your tooth in a single appointment.

Crowns Provide Important Benefits

Repair and Protect Compromised Teeth

A crown is placed over a tooth after treating the dental trauma or decay, protecting it from further damage. This can often allow a patient to avoid the need for an extraction.

A Long-Lasting Solution

Made of dental porcelain, these restorations are designed to withstand normal biting forces. With proper care, they can last a decade or more.

Lifelike Results

Restorations crafted of high-quality dental porcelain can be color-matched to blend seamlessly into your smile. The advanced porcelain ceramic mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel.

Same-Day Crowns vs. Lab-Made Crowns

The Center for Dentistry in Aiken, SC, offers both traditional and same-day dental crowns to meet your needs.

Same-Day Crowns

same-day dental crowns

We hold our restorative work to the highest standards, including our convenient same-day crowns. Our team can repair a tooth in a single appointment thanks to the use of our in-office crown milling unit. In many cases, this allows you to leave our Aiken dentist's office with a complete and healthy smile, with no need for a later appointment or the added cost of a temporary crown. 

Lab-Made Crowns

We also offer custom lab-made crowns. They may be recommended if you want a crown made of a premium material like zirconia. Our SC dentists work with some of the best lab technicians to deliver natural-looks aesthetics. With lab-made crowns, you will receive a temporary crown while your permanent dental crowns are being made.

What options do I have if my tooth has to be removed or if I'm already missing a tooth? 

Implant-Supported Crowns

Our dentists will do everything they can to preserve a damaged tooth. However, in some cases, an extraction might be necessary for your dental treatment.

Patients who are missing a tooth or need to have a tooth extracted may be candidates for an implant-supported crown. In this dental treatment, a small titanium implant is surgically placed into your jawbone. A dental crown is then attached to the implant to completely replace the missing tooth from root to chewing surface.

Benefits of an implant crown include:

Retain Jawbone Tissue

When you lose a tooth, your jawbone will begin to shrink due to a lack of stimulation from the tooth roots. Implants act like tooth roots, and they can stop the bone atrophy that follows tooth loss. This will help maintain your oral health  and also preserve your facial features so you don't develop the "puckered" look that can accompany tooth loss.


Although your crown may need to be replaced about every 10 years, your implants can last the rest of your life, making them a worthwhile investment in your oral health.

No Need to Alter Healthy Teeth

Traditional bridges require the surrounding teeth to be reduced so that they can be crowned and provide support to your replacement teeth. With a dental-implant supported crown, there is no need to alter healthy teeth because all support is provided by the dental implant.

Great dentist. I've never had a better experience getting a cavity filled before. I literally didn't feel a thing (first time that ever happened) and they got in and out when working on the filling so fast. Also, very nice atmosphere in the office and the staff and dentists are wonderful. Would highly recommend.
