Protect Your Tooth with a Dental Crown
A dental crown is a cap above the gum line and over the tooth root shaped like the tooth, it is utilized to replace enamel, to protect the root and dentin, strengthen, and improve the appearance of a tooth. Dental crowns have been provided by Verde Pointe dentists for many years.

We follow all HIPPA, OSHA & CDC guidelines to help ensure the best service. Each patient receives the individual attention they deserve, and we have treated thousands of patients since 1982.

Dental Crown Procedure
The dental crown procedure is a two-step process. The first is to examine and prepare and shape the tooth root. Impressions will be taken before the first process starts and then another once the tooth is prepared. A temporary cap will be made and cemented in to protect the root. About two weeks later, when the cap is ready, the second is to cement the tooth-shaped cap. Dental crowns can be made out of a variety of materials, including Zirconia, eMax, PFM, or gold - however most crowns today are tooth colored. Your doctor will recommend the best type of crown for your particular situation, as each case is different.
