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. Thus allowing for greater customization, superior durability, and same-day placement using CAD/CAM.
Dr. Dechter and Dr. Moy offer all types of dental crowns near you. We can use in-office CEREC technology for the same-day placement of a custom-fit crown!
We may recommend the placement of a dental crown for a wide range of concerns:
- Tooth damage: Crowns prevent further deterioration and infection. A dental crown repairs a decayed, chipped, or cracked tooth.
- Cosmetic concerns: A dental crown can change the color, shape, and overall appearance of a tooth.
- Post root canal treatment: Have you had a root canal recently? Chances are that the dentist used a crown to strengthen the tooth after a root canal.
- Dental implant restoration: A dental crown is the final piece of an implant for a single missing tooth.

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 were 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.”
