Dental CrownsAn Overview
Dental crowns are a multi-use dental restoration that can restore a patient’s oral health and the appearance of their naturally beautiful smile. Dental crowns are made of the highest quality dental ceramic and are custom designed to blend seamlessly with the patient’s smile.
Dr. Carter Perkins provides comprehensive dental exams and takes a “full mouth” approach to dental care. He will analyze the health and function of the teeth, gums, and bite to ensure patients enjoy their optimal oral health. Dr. Perkins uses dental crowns for their versatility, durability and natural appearance.
Dental crowns can be used to:
- Secure a tooth after a root canal
- Replace a missing tooth in combination with a dental implant
- Close gaps between teeth
- Repair a damaged or misshapen tooth
- Conceal a discolored tooth due to trauma
Our in house lab technician works with Dr. Perkins to ensure patients are satisfied with the design and fit of their dental crown. The crown can be color matched and shaped to the specifications desired by the patient and dentist. Dental crowns provide long lasting results that promote stable oral health.
Nobody likes going to a dentist but, at Perkins Dentistry, they try to make you as comfortable as possible. Shiatzu massage dental chairs, your own private flat screen television, and shades for your eyes are just a few of the unexpected comforts. What impressed me the most was all their…Erin M.

Dental Crowns What to Expect
Dental crowns are used to treat such a wide range of dental concerns, and the exact treatment process may vary depending on your personal needs and goals. Dr. Perkins and our dental care team will discuss your treatment plan with you before the procedure so that you feel fully prepared.
Dental crowns are custom designed and fabricated to the each patient’s specifications. Our in-house dental lab tech uses 3-D printing and state of the art dental technology to create a dental crown that will fit securely and comfortably. The crown will look and feel like a natural tooth. Dental crowns are made from the highest quality dental ceramic and are durable and highly functional.
Once the dental crown is created, Dr. Perkins will ensure that the patient is satisfied with the fit and appearance of the dental crown. The dental crown will then be permanently bonded to the prepared tooth, or attached to the dental implant.
