Dental Crowns An Overview
Dental crowns are one of the most useful restorative treatment options available to patients today with both restorative and cosmetic applications. The many advances in materials and technology have improved the dental crown, allowing for greater customization, superior durability and same day placement using CAD/CAM.
Drs. Dechter and Moy offer all types of dental crowns and can use in office CEREC technology for the same day placement of a custom fit crown when appropriate.
We may recommend the placement of a dental crown for a wide range of concerns:
- Tooth damage: crowns can be placed over a decayed, chipped or cracked tooth to prevent further deterioration and infection.
- Cosmetic concerns: a dental crown can change the color, shape and overall appearance of a tooth.
- Post root canal: a crown is often placed over a tooth that has had a root canal to strengthen it.
- Dental implant restoration: a dental crown is the final piece of an implant for a single missing tooth.

CEREC is often the perfect solution for unexpected tooth trauma, a broken crown and other cases where immediate placement will restore dental health and meet your overall needs.
Patient Case Study
“Two weeks ago my son was attacked by a group of maniacs. He suffered trauma to his mouth fracturing teeth #8, #9. After doing some research I chose Dechter & Moy Dentistry. Their kindness and customer service was fantastic from the front office to the operatory. They have state of the art dental equipment allowing my son to leave with two beautiful permanent crowns in one visit, eliminating the need for a second temporary replacement visit. My son and I are so so pleased he scheduled an appointment for a cleaning.”
